What's it like for a person who decides to invest tens of thousands of dollars into an aviation career, over a 6 month period, working 7 days a week? And then when they're done, have to go through a process that weeds out 70% of the applicants who want to become a CFI, and then finally sent to a 30 day program in Florida which prepares you to teach that first student. That's exactly what Libby Parsons, tonight's guest, had to go through to become a CFI just 6 weeks ago. Her passion, maturity, and enthusiasm will convince you, just as it did for Al and Marc, that she is going to be one of the great ones. A great conversation!
Al rejoined the team after a 3 week hiatus, and discussed with Marc several announcements, including the release of SocialFlight version 4, the first production flight of the Honda Jet, the addition of a FIKI option for the Cessna TTx, Amelia Earhart's progress, and Al's contribution to the shut down of Rocky Mountain Metro airport.
Welcome back to BoldMethod, as that team rejoined the show to discuss a variety of updates, training topics, and preparations for Oshkosh.
Thanks for listening!
