Can i be an instructor

If you are a confident flyer [ club approved ] patient, trustworthy, teachable, like people and enjoy watching beginners progress then you certinally should try this. The most rewarding thing is making new flyers and friends to fly with . This will take up allot of your time because training is a long process with some students. You got to find methods of instruction that work to help the student learn faster so confide in older instructors about their methods. You must be patient and build up the student confidence when they make mistakes above all don't yell at them.Show up on training days and be ready for anything to happen. Know your limits , say you may have a problem with new beginners first then ask an older instructor to take them up. Always check out the plane for balance or any repair that they may have done to the plane and be sure to check for range of radio. A buddy cord sure makes thing easy on instructors[ saved many a plane in time] I have instructed for over ten years and helped many students get their wings and am still learning methods that help

I find it funny sometimes when you save the students plane and they are a little upset because you didn't let them fix their own mistake. Granted there comes a time when you let students learn the hardway, but my reactions are quick and I mention that I'd rather save the plane rather then let them try to recover. This is especially true when you say two or three times to "pull up" and the plane hasn't moved. The student replies that I was moving the stick, but nothing was happening.

I like instructing because it really helps increase your own flying abilities. the down side it gets a little boring when the students get proficient and you just keep you finger on the button. At Ajax we have ITS - Instructors in Training, that we give the students to when they are at that level.

Instructing is a blast Just to see the simle on their faces after they fly or having them ask "can we go again?" is rewarding
