It is a one-on-one phone conversation between the student and the instructor.

Basically--it is extra help.

Stand down people. Some people do BETTER with on-line courses.

I simply can't stand sitting in a classroom while someone asks questions and sidetracks learning.

I learn quite well by reading and visualizing. In fact, I took my private pilot license and instrument rating written tests without EVER setting foot in a classroom.

If someone tells me I'm not a good pilot because I didn't sit in class listening to other students trying to grasp concepts which I already understood, I'd have to strongly disagree.

Bottom line, is there is no "one size fits all" method. Anyone who insists their way is best is simply ignorant.

PA28235pilot:

Yes--I think we all agree if you have some previous and thorough understanding of the concepts then an online course may be for you. However, (see earlier posts) the vast majority of the students do not previously know the concepts.

So what we have said is consistent with what you just posted. Most people who take the course, unfortunately, do not meet the criteria that you described (again see earlier posts.)

As far as pilot training--I am not a pilot nor have I ever take any pilot training so I really can't speak to that one way or the other.

FYI--The USA is the only first or second world country that does not require recreational mariners to obtain a license. Before everyone starts--don't mention the State Safe Boating Certificates--they really don't teach anyone anything of value.

Original definition:
First world = Europe
Second world = western hemisphere, or rather, North America, since the southern half kinda lagged.

But that doesn't apply anymore, the US is ranked below any number of third world (which generally means Africa and other "savage" colonies from a 1900-perspective) countries in many ways now. We worked hard to become a htird world country, I say we should be proud of that. (sigh)

Not a conference call. One-on-One between student and instructor
