Submit A Training Practice
Special Promotion for October-March 2013:
Sharing a Training Practice Has Earned IAFTP Members
Money and Global Recognition!
Thanks to the generosity of the Saudi Aviation Flight Academy (SAFA), the IAFTP Advisory Committee recognized the three best training practices submitted by flight instructors EACH MONTH during the 6-month period October 2012 and March 2013. The best submission each month received US$100, the first runner-up each month received US$75, and the 2nd runner-up each month received US$50 PLUS all received global recognition on the IAFTP website. AVweb also profiled both the winners and their employers to its more than 250,000 readers.
The phrase “pilot training best practices” is used globally yet, until now, there has been no neutral database for reference and evaluation. The implications of this are significant — unless a specific training practice is known to be widely used and is documented to be effective, it really should not be described as a “best practice.” It is simply a training practice or technique, nothing more.
There are as many ways to teach flying as there are good instructors. And, each good instructor has developed special ways to guide students toward becoming safe and competent pilots instead of simply accumulating hours to a minimum standard.
What IAFTP is seeking to have posted are those few unique gems of wisdom that every good instructor tries to impart upon his or her students to make them better pilots – at all levels of pilot training.
How do you do this? Will you share an example of a training practice or technique that you use?
Submitting this form is the first step towards possible recognition of your training practice or technique as a “pilot training best practice.” If you are already registered for site access and logged-in (upper right corner of this page), your personal details will be automatically displayed to avoid re-typing.
