    This information is shocking and really makes you think. Always know that you are the only one flying the aircraft and no one has the right to bully you to flying their way. You as PIC are responsible for the safety of the passengers and aircraft. Great discussion and questions.

    I am looking at starting my training to become a private pilot, this information is a really good way to stay out of trouble. If a pilot like this lady can crash after hundreds of hours in that plane, well it makes me understand that when you are the PIC, then be the PIC!

    Though I found the quiz confusing as I did not realize that more than one answer was OK.

    Painful to watch. Encourages much-needed self-reflection. No flight will ever go perfectly, but it's our job to make sure those imperfections don't add up to a disaster.

    This should always be the first course any pilot takes at It makes pilots take an important step back and really ask themselves, "could I be in this situation too?" Studying the mistakes of someone else is the best way to keep yourself from being the person someone ELSE is studying.

    Quizzes were confusing but they are supposed to be in this situation. Fly8MA does a good job of flustering you and giving you an idea of the information overload going through PIC Dana's mind as she attempted to land. The end results of this quiz is a better understanding of ATC to PIC hierarchy. At the end of the day you are the PIC and you have the plane as a first priority.

    I found this case study incredibly useful as a part 141 student pilot. I would recommend the course to any of my classmates.

    This is an eye-opening course and I appreciate the lesson learned, but I think the quiz was confusing and I'm not clear according to that quiz what was "correct" on the quiz vs. "safe" in real life. I think it should be completely re-written to be less confusing.

    The course is good but I can’t figure out how to get credit for it. Yes I did both test
