It’s Easier than it Seems—and Harder
In this general discussion, the newcomer to flying could be intimidated by the amount of detail and multitude of tasks involved in a simple flight. None of this
should be off-putting to the would-be pilot. The aviation learning process is gradual and stair-stepped so that no new information or skill is added until each step is mastered. In fact, the vast amount of skill and knowledge required to be a good pilot is a major part of flying’s appeal. We can spend years and thousands of hours flying and still be able to continue to refine our abilities toward the ultimate goal—flying the perfect flight.
