One of the most important aspects of learning to fly is choosing the right flight instructor. Feeling comfortable with an instructor is what makes learning to fly a great experience. During flight training, a student and instructor spend a lot of time together in close proximity. In the small enclosed space of an aircraft cockpit, it is important to remember that diversity in individual personalities can lead to very different interactions. When choosing an instructor, use personal judgment and intuition. Ideally, select someone that is easy to get along with and who has a matching communication style.
