I just finished my first week as a full-time flight instructor at Sunrise Aviation. Suffice it to say that with record levels of rainfall and a storm system that has parked itself over Southern California for the past week, I haven’t been doing much flying.
That’s ok, though. It’s given me a chance to get some ‘check-outs’ done. I’d like to teach in the really advanced airplanes (DA-40 Diamond Star, Cirrus SR20 and SR22, etc) that Sunrise has available, so I’ve been keeping busy going through the aircraft manuals and Garmin 1000 materials. I also got a backseat checkout for the Citabria/Decathlon so I can instruct in those aircraft.
