Pilot instructor stories are way more exciting than welding instructor stories."OK, I think we've got the hang of it now." I have heard those words before.
Yeah, I've known a couple of those guys. Their rank usually indicates that they couldn't care less about being a general, avoid staff jobs like the plague, try never to get within two time zones of the Pentagon, and spend their whole careers in the cockpit. As was the case with this guy they're some of the best pilots you'll ever run into, and usually pretty nice guys to boot.We also had a 20+ year major that we figured must be a screw up.
