Teaching VORs for the written

Asked by: 2121 views Flight Instructor, Instrument Rating

Don't want to seem stupid, but does anyone know of a fool proof and simple way to teach VORs for the written exam?  Again, with G1000, VOR navigation in the plane was easy but understanding it for the written exam seems like a completely different animal.  Anyone have any good tricks?  I'm supposed to be teaching a ground school class this weekend ... help!

    Ok that is something we teach very differently. We have actually had that training video up on our website for some time now. I don’t know if this works for you since it will ask you to forget all you know about VORs but it does always work for the students in my classes.
    Here is the link to the video

    Let me know if this helps
