Master Instructor Emeritus
Congratulations! You earned your pilot certificates and ratings; however, many pilots know that is not enough. They realize using stick and rudder is missing from their skill set.
Many pilots pursue continuing flight education to develop the stick and rudder skills that assuage anxiety over stalls; build confidence making cross-wind landings; assure recovery from unusual attitudes.
If great stick and rudder skills is your goal, welcome to this website, your resource for mastery of airmanship.
