SEP(LAND) flight instructor to an airline transition

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

Hereís something to cheer you up. I was in the sim couple of years back and we were looking at UPRT. The trainer mentioned that pilots that still flew outside of the airline seemed to cope well with the recoveries. Seems the old stick and rudder skills counted for something. My point is you have a lot of time both general handling and analysing someone else flying in other words PF and PM in airline speak.

Iím not criticising cadets or MPL candidates but you have plenty of aviation experience. Donít knock it although youíll probably find a type rating course intense. I think we all did that came from an instructor background. Hope that helps.


Thank you!
