My 14 Day Private Pilot Training


When I look back at the whole experience from the perspective of a new day I have only positive thoughts. Two weeks ago today I had never even sat in the left seat of an aircraft let alone flown one. I have learned a tremendous amount about piloting and aviation in this really very short time, both knowledge and skills. That I was even ready to attempt a check ride at the FAA minimum hours is really a testament to your skill and tenacity as a flight instructor and I thank you greatly for that. You employed just the right amount of demonstration and encouragement along with a demand for solid fundamentals of flight from me. Lesser instructors would not have arrived at day 14 with me feeling as prepared as I did.

Thank you for the time and effort you put in to making me a pilot. I really appreciate it.
