I have been a CFI for about 2 years now and consider myself to be pretty good at my job, However I have hit a brick wall with one student. He has about 220 hour and is still having major difficulties with basic air work and the maneuvers for the private. I’ve flow about 25 hours with him and feel we have made some progress, but nowhere near the pace as I usually am able to attain with students. Is it just a case of him learning at a slower pace? I know the other CFI’s he’s flow with and they are hard working and dedicated, defiantly not a case of a CFI milking a student for hours. I’m no Chuck Yeager so I don’t feel its my place to tell him he’ll never be a pilot, but at what point do you say enough’s enough?
