Learning to fly is challenging to everyone who pursues flight, but with the support of your flight instructor and AOPA, you can overcome any challenge that may come your way. To provide its student members with additional assistance and encouragement, AOPA launched a dedicated Flight Training Helpline at 1-888-232-7456 – and AV8RS have free access!
The helpline is staffed by a team of experienced AOPA pilots and CFIs who are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., ET to provide you with support, advice and answers to help you reach your flight training goal.
Always remember as you progress through your training, the only bad question is the one you never ask. So be sure to take advantage of this excellent member benefit as much as you want!

The FAA encourages pilots to do a number of things in order to increase safety, but does not require them. Check out these three actions that are recommended.
Your CFII usually follows up route-planning drilling with a review of appropriate regulations, and today’s selection is 14 CFR 91.185, "IFR Operations: Two-way radio communications failure."
Over the past several weeks, the Air Safety Institute has observed a cluster of general aviation accidents occurring in close succession. The Air Safety Institute recommends that GA pilots conduct a pre-holiday safety pause and risk review. See these safety steps to take before your next flight.
