Trala-la, trala-la 9/12/2010

The Club and most of the instructors are OK, but some has problem with attitude. I was flying with Patty Andrews. Nice girl, but she believes that people above 40, are not really comfortable with flying. “They just got money to realize a dream from childhood”. I was flying under her instructions ~50 hours before I realized that we spend the time with straight- and level flight to and back Livermore. She was faking for me a lot of flying without entrusting me actions on my own. Trala-la, trala-la… I was too precious and solid student pilot to get anywhere with her (in the air). I left after 4 months and 10.000$, and I still feel as an idiot… more

Disappointing and lots of internal problems 6/18/2010

Business / profit reasons seem often to be put ahead of safety concerns at West Valley. And there seems plenty of internal strife. WVFC calls itself and is supposed to be a non-profit, but in many ways operates like a for profit enterprise. It provides sales awards for its managers / sales people. Many new customers get quickly signed up, but drop out some relatively short time later. A recent job advertisement on Craig’s List for a ‘membership sales’ person, required the skill to “be able to sell snow to an Eskimo”. (Good for management, but perhaps not so good for the Eskimos?). \r \r Their safety record was questionable. West Valley had 6 aircarft accidents in 2009 and 5 years of increases in accidents.\r \r Pros: Pros: Large selection of mostly older aircraft Cons: Cons: Too many safety problems & too much internal strife more
