*Certain points and purchases restrictions apply, see full Rewards
Terms and Conditions for full details at AOPA.org/creditcard.
1. Rewards points can be redeemed for Cash Back or other items provided
through AOPA Pilot Rewards. A Cash Back redemption is applied
as a statement credit. The statement credit will reduce your balance
but you are still required to make at least your minimum payment. A
minimum of 2,500 points is needed to redeem for Cash Back. Values
for non-cash back redemption items such as merchandise, gift cards,
and travel may vary. 2. Please note that merchants self-select the category
in which transactions will be listed and some merchants may be
owned by other companies, therefore transactions may not be counted
in the category you might expect. Purchases made using Near Field
Communication (NFC), virtual wallets, or similar technology may not
be eligible for bonus points. 3.You will earn 4% Cash Back (1 regular
point + 3 bonus points = 4%) for every $1 of Net Merchandise Purchases
on select AOPA purchases, 3% Cash Back (1 regular point + 2 bonus
points = 3%) for every $1 of Net Merchandise Purchases made at select
AOPA partners, 2% Cash Back (1 regular point + 1 bonus points = 2%)
for every $1 of Net Merchandise Purchases made at FBOs (fixed based
operators), aviation and auto fuel, and flight schools, and 1% Cash
Back (or 1 point) for every $1 of other Net Merchandise Purchases. For
example, if you spend $100, you will earn 100 points which is equal to
$1 in Cash Back rewards. A maximum of 2,500 bonus points will be
awarded per calendar quarter, per rewards account. Please allow up
to five business days after the transaction posts to your account for
bonus points to be awarded.
BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL AVIATOR IS
shaped significantly by the student's
flight instructor. Yet rarely, if ever, are
students given a choice of who will teach
them the fundamentals of flight. Even if
such an option were commonplace, it is
doubtful that a fledgling aviator would
know what questions to ask or how to
make a knowledgeable selection. Furthermore,
each student is unique, and within
certain general boundaries each student
learns differently. Instructors also are
individuals with their own teaching styles
and proficiency. What are the chances
that any student will be assigned the most
effective CFI for him or her?
A better question is what can students
do to help their CFIs be effective teachers?
The dynamic interaction between
student and CFI shapes the learning
experience. Additionally, students and

FLIGHT TRAINING AUGUST 2021
flight instructors are teammates in the
same sense that coaches and players are
part of the same team, and like teams in
general they need to share a common
goal. For CFIs and their students, the
common goal is development of a safe and
productive aviator. Achieving that goal is
facilitated when student and instructor
communicate openly and with candor.
Before launching a course of training,
student and instructor should discuss
what each party wants to achieve, what
motivated them to pursue their goals, and
how working together can be mutually
beneficial.
Your CFI will be more effective in
teaching you when you candidly discuss
why you want to become a certificated
aviator and what you expect from your
instruction. Knowing more about you,
your instructor can better relate the tasks
