Even though you’re now teaching others to fly trike weight-shift control (WSC) light-sport aircraft (LSA), you’ve probably noticed that you are now learning more about flying than you ever did as a student. By teaching others you learn quickly how well you really know the subject matter. Its one thing to learn something, but to teach others you have to posses a level of understanding that few ever accomplish.
In addition to knowing your stuff you have to be able to transfer your knowledge to your student pilots. Guess what? Your teaching style may not always be compatible with your students learning style. So now you are a student of human interaction and communications. You have to learn new ways of communicating. Students come from all walks of life, with different learning styles which can truly be a challenge.
