Dan Vandermeer submits this “simple tip to help keep flight training consistent: I advise student pilots to routinely schedule three lessons ahead.
The most common reasons training sessions are cancelled are:
- The student or CFI has a last minute schedule conflict;
- The weather is not good;
- The aircraft has a mechanical/avionics problem.
Just a few cancelled lessons can be discouraging to the student and rescheduling can require time-consuming communications.
But if a lesson is cancelled and another has been already scheduled, the training can continue as already planned.”
