Tripple checking is a great idea, providing you actually know how to spot a problem.
A novice can hardly be expected to recognize what can later become a problem that will cause a crash.

As for flying in tight places full of obstacles, again it is a case that with your 2000 flights you've forgotten that a novice will have a much harder time negotiating the obstacles.

Bottom line is that the majority of people don't have 2000 flights on a particular model , perhaps) and sadly most novices will end up a first flight with a planed that waws not checked by an experienced pilot with the sour feelings that comes when you prang a nice new plane.

Even a stable and fun plane like the T28 needs enough altitude to pull out of a loop, especially if in a dive with full throttle, a person with 2000 fights will know that and put the plane high enough, a novice may even go into that loop unintentionally and/or too low.

Sadly novices dont come with 2000 flights, they need to start and a prang in the first flight or two is not something that will help them in the hobby.

Once again, I am sure that you are a great pilot but not everyone is so, most of us mere mortals need a helping hand when getting started.


Forrest for the trees Danny. I like everyone started with a first flight.

I give people more credit than you do, but.........
