Flight training, as defined by the FAA and the world in general, is simply teaching people to fly.
What goes unnoticed is that for many of us, flight instructing is a way of life. Yes, there are thousands of instructors who are simply transiting through the seemingly obligatory CFI thing to pad their log books as they lunge towards the first rung of the airline ladder. Every job has less overall aggravation and responsibility. Flight instruction, if it is done right, is the best combination of a calling and a challenge.
However, when these words finally find their way into print, most of our concerns will be history.
So much will have happened to change our world that it is frustrating to even guess at those changes.
Anyway, we’re a week into 2018 and the national/international news is as chaotic as ever but I predict the year will be a good one.
For one thing, I’m certain we’re not going to come to blows with North Korea.
Perhaps it is the sure knowledge that “something” is going to happen, but we don’t know what, that is making so much of the current situation untenable.
The list of possible incidents/actions/outcomes is long and maddening.

The attraction is similar to what makes school teachers what they are. Something about the process of passing along hard-won knowledge is satisfying enough to ignore all the downsides to the career.
