Well for a start the first sentence is so simplistic it seems to have been written for those who are at the bottom of the IQ scale under the heading of.
If we are to judge the material based on its literary merits, then I have yet to find anything that was particularly incredible. Even Stick and Rudder
was hardly readable in that regard. And maybe you haven’t noticed, but most AFMs are written hardly hiding how poorly learned engineers assume that their pilot readership is going to be. It doesn’t mean the information within such tomes should be discounted.
" The Instructional Role. "
The purpose if all instruction is to help students learn.
You would maybe be surprised how many instructors should read that line a bit more carefully. Or maybe not. Depends on how many instructor students you taught over the years. As a case in point I had one person who desired to get his rating whose motivation to become an instructor was to, “become a big fish in a small pond”. I declined to take him as a student. Instruction isn’t to pad your ego, to build hours, to get more paper qualifications.
Maybe a lot of people skip that bit. It would explain a lot of the shitty instruction I have seen evidence of.
You should contact Andy and ask him what he thought about my advice on how to land it.
Why would I need to bother him about that? What is between you and him is your business, not mine.
You really should join us over on the other forum as it is so much easier to openly discuss things there.
I gave up on that place a long time ago. I occasionally read it if I’m exceedingly bored and have free wifi, but I also don’t like my browser feeding me links to far right propaganda, so I try to avoid it.
If you read it can you let me know if it is useful in teaching flying, and if not why?
Not going to bother.
