Advice on the Right Instructor

Post by niteowl2000 » Sun Aug 15, 2004 12:42 pm

A friend of mine has been flying with the same instructor for the last 2-3 years, recently he feels a lot more under pressure and intimidated when flying iwth the instructor, admittedly the level of flying has not been too high 17 hours in the past 2-3 years. would it be a good idea for the person to seek a different instructor, or is some form of pressure a good thing.

how is the instructor intimidating/pressuring specifically?

should be patient/encouraging.

Most of us don't very often have a great deal of say as to who instructs us.

I was unbelievably lucky in that Weston had only one week-day instructor the Summer I presented

If there is an identity parade look for one that has been at it for 25 yrs or more : if no such an one try and get one that learned from such an one

The bonus is something called airmanship

And Pressure

Student should be advised that this is going to be made to materialise at unpredictable and unannounced moments without warning.

Such training sequences form the basis for many future survival reports
