My Life as a Flight Instructor

Terry L. Leap, Lawson Professor of Business Administration and HeadCollege of Business Administration - Department of Management

Learning to fly and earning a private pilot certificate is a challenging and expensive endeavor. As an FAA-certificated flight instructor, Leap taught his clients about the mechanics of airplanes, pre-flight procedures, aerodynamics, basic maneuvers, aircraft systems, air traffic control procedures, cross-country flight planning, federal aviation regulations, and more. His presentation will focus on the salient features of learning to fly. The audience will learn what it takes to become a safe and proficient pilot and, he hopes, the presentation might stimulate someone’s interest in this enjoyable hobby.​
