Perhaps you shouldn’t work for such a shit company or through that FBO.

>>Show up at 5:30am for 6am flight
This is your mistake : put your students on later time-slots
>>
CFI's like you will bitch moan & complain about their job all day long and then shit on me when I say I'd rather banner tow or aerial survey than instruct in a million years
>>
Shoulda' been a Florida flight instructor. :^)

>-20C
>plane wasn't plugged in
>plane eventually starts

This is how I know this is a larp. Go back to flipping burgers fag.
>>
>>1740465
I feel for CFIs whom students don't come prepared at all

>10 mins late
>10 mins+ for W&B (could've done this at home the night before) - say total of 15 mins
>Forgets headset (5 mins late)

that's half an hour of wasted time, probably a bit more.
No wonder why 80% of students who start their private never finish.

you can get the engine temperature up if you have a heater, my local airport has a propane based heater for plane engines. Works like majik except you gotta make sure to direct the heater nozle directly at the engine if doing it through the air intakes
>>
>>1740465
I do not miss the north. I do not miss the -30 below days.

And fuck flight instructing.
>>
>>1740465
convince my not to go to Gander and enroll in flight school
is there any future in becoming a pilot in Canada?
>>
cant wait to ctrl v this whole post onto reddit
>>
>>1740465
I like to see how hard I can land before my cfi will say something.
>>
>>1740666
I did that. Then I got laid off because of COVID

What a fucking disaster that's still stuck in the 50s in terms of tech.

Also these people drive on the fucking highway to work every day and then have a stroke if two planes get within a mile of each other
>>
