Today is the Alliance Airshow (www.allianceairshow.com). I am going with one other instructor and 5 or so students. Should be fun. Kelli thought about going....but I don't think she would have fun. Being around airplanes makes me happy. Fun day ahead.
Yesterday I started the crew training for two students, James and Nick. These students are "special". Why? Well I was supposed to be their instructor. When my jet course was moved up I had to change the my schedule for starting new students. I instead got Derrick and Lauren. The instructor the James and Nick got was the same one they had for their private...one that didn't care a whole lot. They got a sub-par education for the multi-engine and instrument ratings. I felt pretty bad for them. Yesterday was a crash course in instruments. I feel really rewarded when I teach. Gonna miss it. I spent 4 hours lecturing. They were wide eyed soaking it all in. I think I am going to fly with one of them to Lubbock, Texas and the other to Alexandria, Louisiana. I want to go somewhere I have never been. I would love to go to Galveston....but I doubt ATP would approve it. I also want to go to Nacogdoches. Bleh.
