How To Select The Best Flight Instructor - Articles Surfing
One of the most important aspects of your flight training is your flight instructor. Before you begin your flight training, you need to make sure that your flight instructor is someone who you are going to get along with and learn from easily. This is extremely important.
When you are deciding who to hire as your flight instructor, you need to have a few questions that you have written down to take with you. These questions should be direct and should give you a good sense of the flight instructor's personality and teaching ability. Make sure that you have the instructor explain an aspect of flying to you. If he or she is not easy to follow, then they will not make a good instructor in the long run. But, if they are enthusiastic, easy to understand, and appear to be a good teacher, then you have found your flight instructor.
Remember, you don't want to be stuck with a random instructor who isn't going to be around for the duration of your training. Find someone you trust.
A moment ago, I said 'who to hire.' What does that mean? It means that you are the boss. You don't have to be stuck with the first person you come into contact with. If the flight school just assigns you an instructor, you can choose to fly with someone else at any point in your training. Don't worry about hurting anyone's feelings either. We're all grownups here.
Talk with other students (hang out for a while) to see who their instructor is, what their experiences are. Most everyone I have EVER talked to loves to talk about their flight experiences. Ask them their recommendations for flight training. They might not be an expert, but you can certainly tell if they are satisfied with their training or not.
Just remember that flying is an adventure, keep it fun. Good luck in your flying.
