Rick, Larry, Tom, Victoria, and Carl are all here for this episode! Russ will be joining in a bit later in the show.
Announcements: The Affordable Aircraft Expo (also knows as the Sebring US Sport Aviation Expo) is January 20-23 2016 and Carl is trying to make it there with SMAC. and Sun N Fun Radio. Tom is trying to get there, and some of Victoria's colleagues will be there.
Our first topic this evening is the disappearing CFI.
Carl says it can be difficult to find a CFI to do a flight review or checkout with because the CFI's are being hired by the airlines and pulling them away. How can we achieve training without relying on a particular instructor?
Tom has seen the same thing at multiple schools, going through 3 different CFI's while working on his private.
Larry has experienced this and has compensated by trying to use several different instructors so he usually has several different people he can go to that he has flown before.
