Qualities of a greater education
When comparing schools and flight instructors, consider that your flight instruction should have these qualities:
Fun. Flight training is expensive and if your not having fun then you need to find a new school or instructor.
Purposeful. Every lesson should help you advance your skills and knowledge towards a specific goal.
Measurable. Training should produce measurable results.
Conclusive. A training curriculum should have specific milestones that reach the ultimate endpoint of obtaining a private pilot certificate.
