Honestly I really do wonder how you can conclude I think all instructors are doing a terrible job and that all flight instruction needs throwing in the bin.... it’s an incredible conclusion to make and and it happens quite wrong. Commenting upon things that seem ripe for change is not a wholesale change. I leave you to what is becoming an echo chamber.If you won’t see the divergence Phil; I won’t attempt to justify my opinion that we have divergent perspective.
I feel there is value in flight instruction as it is and want to make it better.
It appears to me you think flight instructors are doing a terrible job and gyroplane flight training needs to be completely changed.
If I have misinterpreted your perspective I apologize, it won’t be the first or last time.
I feel I am a good flight instructor and looking for ways to become better.
My flight instruction is constantly evolving with small changes in subtle ways based on what I learn each day.
I have no desire to patronize or debate you.
Edited to add:- Vance I know you feel the need to make commentary on almost anything anyone says, except now you have adopted a new style of posting which isn't conversational its just some line items!
You started this thread off the back of some drift in the "question about pre-rotation" thread and your consistency is limited. When I questioned the accidents we currently have you jump in and just oppose a view for the sake of opposition... Telling all that its is coming down and you don't have a problem and you train XYZ and the insurance rate is golden....
Rather than constantly giving a sales pitch why not just actually write a paragraph an engage with peoples view and read what actually gets written as half of the time its the answer to the next question you feel so desperate to ask.
Stuff doesn't need wholesale change but you can't be so oblivious to the fact that there are elements within the current system that are failing - I can say that because the accident rate per hours flown is high, the type of mishaps are bizarre (regular take off and landings) and both are reflected in your insurance premiums required. Given the title of this thread (one that you started) it seems you at least agree with some of that.
I've given views already on what I would change, specifically what would you change? It might add some value to your posts rather than a bunch of line items that frankly waffle. (Nobody can take very much out of your post 90 or 95 because you tell people you want to change.. but not what you would change.
In post 92 you say:- I would like to address the training issues that may have prevented these eleven accidents.
What training issues are they? it might save an accident with some punter reading....
