Hi everyone. I’m spinning up to start the ACPP in January. I’m a former air traffic controller, so glad to answer any questions you might have about the other side of the mic; I’ve been both terminal (i.e. tower) and en route.
Question for the instructors, students, and others who might want to chip in: when you think of one or two students who you’ve seen go through the program and thought, “man, that guy is nailing it - he’s doing this exactly the way it should be done”, what do you see in him or her? What are they doing well to make them a great pilot and student? Conversely, what are they not doing that the weaker students do (or don’t do)?
I know there are a few threads already getting at some of this topic, including Tory’s recent post that has a ton of great information (read it several times and have it bookmarked, myself). But I haven’t seen one yet discussing what makes a great student, so here we go.
Thanks for whatever advice you all care to offer, and for what you’ve shared here so far. Lots of helpful information. Appreciate it!
