Have to be careful with generalisations of course, but I'm supposing that a significant number of flight students have access to a colour photocopier.

I've been (accidentally, I think...) smacked in the face too many times whilst studes have been trying to unfold and fold a chart that's wider and longer than a C152 cockpit to know that there has to be/is a better way. Whilst it's true that as a flight instructor, we're trying to teach the finer points of max drift, vertical navigation, 1 in 60 blah blah, it can be equally worthwhile to encourage students to spend time thinking about mundane admin. Keep it simple and easy, like me :wink:

As an aside, when did flying instructors turn into flight instructors?

Is that a post-YouTube thing?

Not judging that or anything, just asking.

You're probably right, too much youtube.

My question really wasn't aimed specifically at you, you just reminded me of it. The terms flight instructor and flight school crop up a lot, I just wondered when they'd so decidedly crossed the Atlantic.
