02 / IN-FOCUS: Welcome CFII Annie Story!
Annie grew up in rural Oregon and never had an interest in aviation. While living in San Diego, her older brother introduced her to skydiving. The thrill and joy of playing in the sky quickly became a staple in her life. More than just the joy of free fall, Annie fell in love with teaching through the example of her incredible instructors. She soon started flight school and earned her Private in San Diego. The rest of her certificates were finished over the next year in Texas. For the past year she has been instructing in Cessnas in Rhode Island. She is thrilled to be able to continue to share her love for flying with others.
03 / TRUE CONFESSIONS: Respect the Helicopter by CFII Jim Allen
In lieu of a “Pro-Tip,” Jim offers you today a ‘True Confession.’ True Confessions are when aircrew tell of issues they’ve experienced including those which derived from their own mistakes highlighting the consequences of ill action and then any remedial actions taken to subsequently safely recover.
The benefits of a ‘true confession’ from instructors is a great tool for students and experienced pilots alike. If it can happen to them, it could happen to you!
