yep congrats for ya Der Meister ! and you always sounded like an excellent flight instructor ...anyhoo was sorta wondering if when you first take on a student and after a bit of your expertise,experience spent with the new train-ee ..if you can sort of tell which ones are likely to pre-pare and apply themselves to pass their tests on the first attempt.Is it a bit of hand eye-co-ordination ,?,study memorization,? ,just plain ol aptitude ,,or some folks having a bit of the certain skillz or something like that...?

Maybe  not all that important of a query ..but seriously ,it does take a special instructing style and 'panache' to develop any student to achieve their goals and accomplishment so cheers to ya [B]

and looking forward to your office in the sky too :)

Well I haven't had  student yet that was not able to fly, but some get it faster then others. Its hand-eye coordination, rote memorization, application, critical thinking, and a desire. After flying with them for about 10 hrs I can tell what type of student they will be. 

On another note I won the Patriot Memory facebook giveaway!
