9 Reasons Why You Know You're A Flight Instructor...

Here are 9 ways you know you've spent plenty of time in the right seat...

1) You're not quite sure how many times you've landed today, but you know it's a lot.

2) If your student isn't on course or turning the right way, you catch yourself leaning right or left in your seat.


3) You know within seconds if your student's maneuver is going to work out or not.


4) No matter what flight you're on, your hands are constantly in a defensive position on the controls.


5) And your feet are constantly shadowing the rudder pedals, even if you're not the one flying.


6) You know the difference between a landing that will rattle your teeth, and a landing that will damage the airplane, and you let your student do the first. Gotta learn from experience!

7) You know how to perfectly position your aircraft's vents to keep yourself as cool as possible on those hot summer days.


8) And you know that early morning flights are the best way to beat the heat, turbulence and traffic. Even though nobody likes a 5:30 AM wake-up call.

9) You love teaching, but you total your logbook on a regular basis, counting down to that first jet job.
