Pilot Training Weaknesses


This week's Power Hour will feature an hour-long playing of a video from our Tribal Knowledge series - The Jekyll Island Videos. 

To set up this week's show, here is the history of the videos and why you need to see this one.

  • A flight school based in Montana takes two airplanes and moves them to the South in the Winter. This particular time, they set up shop in Jekyll Island, Georgia—one of the Golden Isles barrier islands near Savannah. 

  • They invited me there to help out with their CFI Training. I did that, but we did a lot more. The kinds of questions they were asking were exactly what other inexperienced and very experienced instructors ask. So, we decided to video the entire exchange over two days. 

  • The result is about 7 hours of Tribal knowledge. We discuss the whys of things, dispel old wives’ tales, talk about the FOI, how to deal with problem students, and so much more. 

  • I’ll be traveling back to the Bay Area during this Power Hour and cannot do the live show. What a perfect opportunity to play an hour of the Jekyll Island Tribal Knowledge videos. 

If you are wondering how to get the rest, scroll down this outline until you see the Bootcamp Plus offer. Normally, if you go to our website and become a member, it’s $22/month. But because you are a Power Hour attendee, you get the same for $9.

In addition to all of the previous Power Hours, 153 so far, you get access to the Jekyll Island videos and much more. 

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this hour-long segment. 

Special Announcement

I would also like to take this opportunity to pay a special tribute to a fantastic Aviator and a person who did nothing but good for Aviation. That person is Richard McSpadden, who ran the Aviation Safety Institute at AOPA. Richard and a passenger were killed last Sunday after an engine failure on takeoff from the Lake Placid airport. Everyone should feel a loss by the departure of this great man.

For the first time, in the FAA-style aviation training environment, there is finally a way for any Flight Instructor, or School to provide complete ground lessons, preflight briefings, and what to say in the airplane no matter what syllabus they use. It also works for Part 61 and 141 training.
