Feature Article: Dealing with Delays
One of the advantages of learning to fly in the fall is the
greater probability of weather delays. A pilot learns to live
with and accept delays of any kind as part of flying. The pilot
who has an attitude problem that makes delay unacceptable is heading
for an accident. Some types of delay can be managed by planning
time allowances. Knowledge can be helpful, too. A flyer learns
to accept that everything cannot be controlled. Don't try to change
those things that can't be changed.
In a club, it is not unusual to arrive at the airport and find
that the aircraft is not fueled or may be low on oil. Know how
to make a quick check and how to make arrangements. What do you
do if the aircraft is not there? Call the answering service. Call
the scheduling officer or maintenance. How long will it take to
get air into a tire? What if the air filter is loose? I lost my
sectional. I left my flashlight home. Allow extra time in your
flight schedule to flex with unavoidable delay. You must adjust,
flex, and give up. On some days you were just not meant to fly.
