trating on a different and final element of flight known as maintaining altitude, heading, and airspeed.) Of course, if you have criteria then you must also have a means of testing to see if those criteria are met. Step six requires that we test each criterion from step five using the TOTE (test, operate, test, and exit) method (a concept originally coined by George A. Miller, Eugene Galanter, and Karl H. Pribram in the 1960s). For example, I test the first two sensory components (Ke/Ve) by looking at the VSI’s needle to see if it remains steady as I pull on the elevator. If the needle moves, I change how I operate by adjusting my pull on the elevator. Then I do the test again. When my pull is satisfactory, I exit and apply TOTE to the next sensory component in the sequence. Finally, step seven links the individual elements together by practicing these steps until the behavior is learned satisfactorily. Practice is what makes a behavior permanent. Considering the seven steps mentioned above, it’s the cause-effect relationships (step three) associated with any behavioral element where practicing becomes especially important if your student is to learn new behaviors quickly. In other words, a student must have sufficient practice at pulling aft on the yoke with sufficient force and speed to keep the VSI and altimeter needles stationary, as well as keeping the wings level during slow flight transition. You can use this seven-step format to disassemble almost any flying skill (yours or someone else’s) into teachable components. Once these components and the order in which they occur are known, you can teach them to your students using the same seven-step format. If you’re interested in a more detailed discussion on these techniques, there is one book that you should read. If it were printed south of the border, I’d say it takes behavioral modeling up a nacho. I’m speaking of the book titled The Emprint Method: A Guide to Reproducing Competence written by Leslie Cameron Bandler. This book is not for the faint of heart. It’s very detailed and the method used is more robust and complex than what I’ve presented here. But it’s your graduate class on behavioral modeling and it provides a lot more meat rather than just chips and beans on the subject. As of this writing (believe it or not), you can purchase a used copy on Amazon. com for only one cent (plus $3.99 postage, of course). Rod Machado is a flight instructor, author, educator, and speaker. He has been a pilot since 1970 and a CFI since 1973. Visit his website (www.rodmachado.com).
