My instructor on 705 NAS was Dave "Malarky Jim" Mallock, one of a very few A1 instructors at the time.

Favourite saying (helicopter drivers will appreciate) was 'go the way you're pointing, and point the way you're going'.

Later I managed my first Deck Landing with Mike Lehan. In the debrief the opening was along the lines of 'when you get front line that's an excellent approach and landing. As you're a stude, that's a fail'.
