I think what did it for me when I was a kid was realizing that the plane can’t and won’t just lose control like that. My dad would teach me about how airplanes fly and what turbulence really is and that helped me a lot. These airplanes are inherently stable and very safe.
Well thanks. I just go to my local flight school. No ATP for me yet.
Somewhere around 30 hours a week, 4-5 days a week. Most of my shifts are at night, starting at 4:30 or later. So even when I do work I pretty much have my days do go flying or flight train. Restaurant/bar life.
