Episode Info

Episode Info: Today’s Flight Plan When starting out flying, you’d think that all instructors have an unwritten law and pact to the be the best they can be, passionate about their student’s learning, and ready to take things on full steam ahead. That’s not always the case. While most instructors are fair, there are some good instructors and few great instructors. So, how do you know? What are some the traits of a quality instructor? And you pilots that already have a license, this one is for you too. If you intend on remaining safe and growing as an aviator, you must continue to learn. So even if you’ve been burned in the past, or you’re a professional pilot, how do you continue to stretch yourself? This podcast will answer some of these questions and more as we delve into Picking and Keeping a Flight Instructor. Useful Info Questions to ask later/or while there: Instructors * How many instructors do you have? * What are their experience levels? * Do I get to pick my instructor? * How do I contact the instructor? (setup personal meetings) * Are they building time, or here to stay? Facilities/Aircraft * What are your hours? * What days of the week is instruction available? * What type of aircraft do you have? Costs * How much is it to rent and aircraft? * How much for an instructor? * What other costs not directly related to flying are there? * Do you have a summary of costs for this license? * How is billing handled? * Do I have to pay up front, or pay-as-I-go? * Is there a cash discount? * Is there a bulk discount? Scheduling * How busy are the aircraft? * How busy are the instructors? * Can I schedule online? Community * How is the flight school involved in the community? * Do you promote any safety meetings, or host get-togethers?
