PilotStu - CFI PilotStu describes his adventure in an accelerated CFI course at MN Aviation in Albert Lea, Minnesota. He notes that it was a tremendous amount of work, but well worth the effort. Going through the program with Stu was Gabe, an energetic pilot from the Pacific Northwest, who was going for commercial single engine, CFI, commercial multi-engine, CFII (instrument instructor) and MEI (multi-engine instructor) in one massive swoop. After recording, Stu learned that Gabe had to postpone the CFII and MEI ratings since he ran out of time. He plans to pursue those back at his home base.

J3 Cub Mike fills us in on his latest purchase - a vintage J3 cub. Mike also describes his work towards earning his tailwheel endorsement and his new found "happy feet" in managing the cub on the ground.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Stew discusses the Accident Investigation course he took as part of his degree program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Flight Time - Instructor iPhone/iPad app Stew reviews the Flight Time - Instructor iPhone/iPad App. Intended for working CFIs, this app helps instructors keep track and manage student training and payments. Stew had a few suggestions on how this app could be even more useful, but felt it did well for what it does. Priced at $7.99, Flight Time - Instructor is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices in the Apple App store.
