Avoid that rundown feeling
UNFAMILIARITY WITH THE AIRPORT, distractions, and complacency can have devastating consequences while taxiing. See why in this runway safety Pilot Safety Announcement (PSA). It can happen to you! Review with your students the reasons why GPS programming and other pretakeoff cockpit chores should be done while safely parked at the FBO or in the run-up area. Ask yourself: Do you know where you are on the airport surface area at all times? Focus on the primary task of getting to the runway or ramp. To learn more about you and your students’ critical roles in runway safety, take ASI’s Runway Safety course.

ASI's newsletter for the serious flight instructor
I am responding to Lynda Meeks’ article about teaching women pilots (“Mars teaching Venus,” CFI to CFI, Volume 1, Issue 2). I am a female pilot with more than 4,000 hours. Teaching college courses I’ve found the most success teaching to an individual, not a gender, race, or age. —Geri, Ground Instructor I’d like to comment on the “Did you know? Icing primer” article (CFI to CFI, Volume 1, Issue 3). I’ve been flying since the ’50s and spent 26 years as a military aviator. During my stint in the U.S. Army it was a court-martial offense to file into freezing rain. Apparently, GA does not get it. Pilots play around with ice and get away with it—familiarity breeds contempt! The writer should have addressed these hazardous attitudes. —Vern, CFII Thanks and point well made. Please share ASI’s safety programs with pilot friends and students vulnerable and at risk of succumbing to dangerous mindsets. – The Newsletter Production Team
