Lessons learned

Some learners feel they have to carry out manoeuvres perfectly first time. This is nonsense and not the time to be defensive or disheartened. You should expect to do some of the more challenging manoeuvres several times before you get it right and feel confident. Your instructor expects this and will move at your pace. If you’re unsure, just ask. It’s important to remember that during your lessons mistakes should make you, not break you. Try not to get frustrated when you don’t get a manoeuvre right. Your instructor understands perfectly that it’s only through making mistakes that you really learn and progress safely.
