Thread: Looking for a mentor

  1. #41


    I picked things up better if i flew every other day. But, I am old and things just take a bit longer to sink in. Very hard to get the weather to fly 14 straight days up here.

    Just in case you didn't realize, Jake, the op of this thread just lost his wife. Of course I can't speak for him, but with 6 kids now to take care of on his own, I doubt very much the he's thinking of learning to fly anytime soon......unfortunately.
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    I'm not too sure about this approach. I logged 24 hours of training in 2 weeks flying twice per day. Then when i got on a less rigorous schedule i had to relearn most of that first 24 hours. It didn't work for me. It was fun but i didn't absorb near what i hoped i would.
