Default Thanks!

This is really amazing! My RV-4 is in the shop and should finally be done when I get back stateside and this has been some great study material. I am feeling more confident about my GK and expectations of the plane for when I finally take it up for the first time! I just wanted to say thanks for putting this stuff together and posting it!

Hello Mike (Vac)! Your work here is outstanding. This perspective brings a very high level process to the home-built flight training community that has flexibility to be de-tuned or adapted easily when needed. The key here: The instructor to student interface is the part that matters "to the end user". I know it can be hard to visualize that part just by reading an instructor syllabus. Recreationally motivated but professionally minded pilots (the kind that tend to like to fly RV's) do not have to viscerally understand the "behind the curtain" ways and means of a program like this to benefit from it greatly. With the help of good instructors, a quality product can be consistently provided with, I suspect, excellent quality control and quantifiable results, using your courseware. This is the secret sauce of any good community based organization like the Bonanza Society, etc.

I downloaded these programs and I'll keep a hard copy of this great work handy for BFR's, training hops, etc. Thank you so much for sharing your great work, put nicely into a tidy, organized format!
