I’m probably the only pilot that quit the airlines to become a flight instructor. After 20 years as a Captain and Instructor at Usairways (now American), I decided to bring professional training to corporate aviation. So, I quit the airlines and started a flight school. Then, after almost four decades of instructing in turboprops and jets, I had an epiphany! All these years, I’ve been training one pilot at a time, dispensing little pearls of wisdom, a drop at a time. It occurred to me that more pilots could access my experience if I published training material.
Not just rote, regurgitated and stale material, but constantly updated information. As a FAA DPE and instructor, I learn tips and techniques from my students everyday. Along with my own observations, I include information from students, training manuals, maintenance books, manufactures notices and the FAA. I compile it, add to it, edit it, condense it and add graphics. All to bring you the most concise, current and pertinent information available to prepare you to fly a specific airframe.
