What do you do with this available time, while not flying? This podcast will outline a handful of tips that can help you “line up and wait” for that time when you can get flying again.

I’m using the analogy of powering up on the runway, holding the brakes… engine roaring and ready to go, the airplane is begging for the sky.

THAT is what you can do RIGHT NOW in your aviation journey. Power up, prepare, and get READY! Because soon enough, tower will call and say “cleared for takeoff”.

What can you do now to prepare for that launch?

  • How Flight Simulation can help you prepare and stay proficient in your flying on a number of levels
  • Why studying, either taking a ground school or reading books, can help you make a leap
  • How you and your instructor can continue your work, start near work, and more to move forward

This really can be a powerful time for you.
