    Ahh. good ole' FXE! Did most of my training there in the early 90's....and yes it was a very busy airport at the time. It's a shame to hear that it is no longer the same...real shame!

    Good point! An instructor teaching in a TAA should deinately make the student work off of the attitude indictor that is also installed in the aircraft as a back up. If that dosen't work, because there is usually no VSI, then I would recommend some flights in a non EFIS aircraft. Most TAA's do...

    fuel has made an impact, but so has insurance. Commercial aircraft insurance has also multiplied within the last few years. Well heck, really, everything has gone way up....tie downs, hangars, parts....seems to be the domino effect. As for the advanced aircraft, I'm seing many that want to...

    There is no doubt that the basic flying fundamentals are a major part of IFR training but that is the obvious...the 101 of IFR. You keep going back to the cost comparison issue of an older airplane to a newer airplane. The topic I brought up is that a GPS equipped aircraft (approach capable)...

    if you're talking about just logging time, then I agree with you but if you want real training in real situations then you do just that and find an aircraft with a GPS. With an exception of an ILS, the GPS has taken over IFR nav. I never said it had to be a 2007 aircraft. What I said is that...

    CFI Liability Insurance

    After reading a recently released article about CFI liability, I was wondering if anyone knew about an insurance company that offers liability insurance for CFI's when they ARE NOT in the aircraft. There are plenty of companies that offer it when the CFI is in the aircraft, but what if we get...

    I don't think the 162 will be certified for IFR training though...could be wrong. Does anyone know if it will be?

    Flight Schools

    One thing that I saw kill two local flight schools near me was there lack of reinvesting money into their school aircraft. One company advertised to have instrument training and all three aircraft they had didnt have a GPS in them. I used to tell students to go find a school that had decent GPS...

    Out of Aviation 6 years; BEST ROUTE BACK? ANYONE have any IDEAS or ADVICE?

    Someone would definately hire you even though you've been out for six years. I would take it easy on the "offering to pay" idea.....save that for last resorts! I was a CP for a corporate company in New England for four years and we didnt have an issue with hiring someone who hadn't flown in a...
