Letters

“License to Learn” columnist Rod Machado first pondered why instructors don’t embrace stick-and-rudder training in April 2012 and followed up with the overwhelming response in his July column. I just finished reading Rod Machado’s article (“A Hot Topic!” July 2012) and say a hearty amen to the comments in favor of stick-and-rudder training.

Safety Pilot Landmark Accident: Pointing fingers

This month's Landmark Accident is notable not because of the accident; visual flight into marginal VFR or instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) is not as rare as it should be.
