experienced flight instructor

What would you think if your workday went like this?

Your first student of the day is an early riser, so you come in to a quiet office, start a cup of coffee, and grab their training record to prepare. By the time you’re done flying with them the office is buzzing, and both you and your student are greeted happily as you walk back inside. Your student reschedules for later in the week and heads out, excited for their next lesson. Throughout the rest of your day you teach two more lessons, show off our fleet to a potential new student, and take some New Orleans visitors up for a romantic aerial tour over the city (and score a nice tip from them in the meantime). You check your schedule for tomorrow, glad that you get to do what you love every day, and head out with waves and goodbyes from the rest of your crew.
