Thanks for all the Good Info Smile (on airports and FBOs) I now have ten times more info than i had previously, and can make an Informed decision, This is just one of many reasons why i find $65 a year for COPA dues to be worthwhile.
When I read this form and find videos, simulators, etc, I feel like I bumped into a virtual Cirrus piñata, and all that brain candy is raining down on my head. At other times I sense I’ve stumbled into a room with the cast of characters straight out of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Those scheduled for the initial [COPA Pilot Proficiency Program] flight training expressed anxiety as they were over-awed by the resumes of their allocated COPA instructors. However, upon return they all had grins borne out of accomplishment and amazement as to how good the instructors were at stretching their flight envelope without putting them down.
