Feature Article: Judgment of Limitations
The ability of a student to plan a safe flight or flying activity
is determined by his judgment of his limitations. It is important
that the student know what he knows how to do well, what needs
practice for improvement, and what is of uncertain or unknown
nature. The first two regions are his to explore. The uncertain
and unknown should be openly discussed with the instructor and
then incorporated into flight instruction. The student must not
be one who fools himself into getting in positions where luck
is needed for a safe outcome. Judgment is defined as the ability
to see and choose between alternatives. Good judgment is determined
by making the best choice.
Good instruction enables a student to have the required judgment
to see, avoid, or plan around potentially harmful situations.

outcome. A safe flight is determined by selecting safe options.

7. A student is best taught by positive suggestion.
8. Most students get frustrated at one or more points.
9. Emotional maturity is a required quality of a pilot.
