Advanced Airplane Learning

“A good pilot must never stop learning and working to improve their skills”

A pilot should never accept “good enough”. We are human, therefore error prone and imperfect. Humans are not stagnant in their abilities. If you are not trying to get better, you are getting worse.

“Flying is 95 percent a head game. Almost anyone can learn the monkey-motion involved with shoving an airplane through the air and planting back on a runway. What matters is how we think. That’s what keeps us alive or gets us dead.” – Rick Durden

Learn to Turn. See Rich Stowell’s Learn to Turn program. Lots of great information in a free booklet that every pilot should read and there are videos to watch. See the Learn to Turn page on Specialized Aero Works‘ website.
