When it comes to learning to fly, the instructor is just as important as the plane and the person learning to fly. Choosing the right flight instructor can be difficult but with these three questions you can find the right instructor easily.
Will I enjoy time with them?
Though it may not seem like a big deal, getting along with your flight instructor is important. You should be able to spend time with them without getting annoyed, frustrated, or upset. You should be able to spend a long time with them as well, flying requires that you spend hours with this person in a confined space so personality compatibility is important.
Can I work with this person?
Another thing to keep in mind is if you can work with the person or not. You have to be able to grow as a person and you have to be able to actually work with the person in question so that you can learn to fly properly and safely. If you cannot form a professional yet friendly relationship with them you may need another instructor.
Can you ask questions?
Learning to fly is going to require that you ask a lot of questions. You should feel comfortable enough with the instructor that you can ask them questions without feeling silly or without feeling like they are not going to answer you. You should be comfortable enough that you can ask all the questions that you need to ask in order to be a safe pilot and to have fun while you are doing it.
Your instructor is important, take the time to find the right instructor so that you can truly have the experience you deserve and so that you can have an experience that is going to leave you a great pilot!
