The Prepared Aviation Student — AviatorCast 117
Today’s Flight Plan
How do you best prepare for flight training of any kind? What does your instructor expect of you? How can you squeeze the most out of every hour?
Through my time as an instructor, I’ve seen a range of preparedness, from the completely unprepared to the fully prepared.
On this episode of AviatorCast I’ll share the ideal qualities of a prepared student. Regardless if you’re already a pilot, this is going to be helpful for advanced ratings that you’ll do.
We’ll talk about the paradigm shift needed to succeed at training, and what that means for you growing as a person.
We’ll talk about building solid study habits and why study can drastically improve your flight hours.
We’ll talk about asking great questions, taking notes, and having quality preflight briefings and ground sessions with all those things.
We’ll talk about taking care of yourself emotionally and physically to make sure you have stamina for the long haul.
And finally we’ll talk about being relentless in your pursuit of this dream to fly, working hard, being honest with yourself in the process.
It’s a whole lot to cover in a short time, but I hope you’ll find it helpful as you seek your next license or rating.
