Pilot Sam Trost uses an opaque hood to block his vision out the window, allowing him only to see the instruments in the cockpit as he trains to use and trust those instruments during flight.
Fortunately for my sanity he removed the visor shortly before actually landing in Huntington, WV.
Sam Trost (student, pilot) and Cory Lombard (instructor), Beechcraft Baron B55 twin-engine plane. Flight from Ohio University airport in Albany, Ohio, to Huntington, WV, and back.
