The 12 Days of Flight Training

I’d like to think that flight instructors have a great sense of humor.  For instance, if you’re in flight training around the holiday season, your syllabus might just look like this.

  1. On the First Day of Flight Training, my CFI gave to me: a lesson on Crosswind Landings.

Ok, not all lessons are like this, but maybe you’ll think twice now about scheduling lessons over the holidays.  Because honestly, this list is torture. Instead check out Globalair.com for some last minute shopping for that special pilot in your life!
