Lets face it, we all understand at one point or another we're going to get tied up in some sort of flight training snag or pitfall. How can we overcome these? At some point between becoming a pilot and leading all the way up to the private pilot checkride you'll need to address these. Let's look into it some more.
Flight Training Plateaus
A plateau is an elevated area that is relatively flat. This explains a lot when it comes to flight training or goal setting. We've all been there. Doing really well at our flying, things are falling into place. Then all of a sudden our landings just plain stink!
How could this happen? Instead of continuing in your progress you feel stuck and the only thing you know to do is keep doing landings till you fly the wheels right off!
That's not the answer! Yes, you will need some practice but don't over do it! Spend some time doing hood work or practicing other maneuvers. Don't let your plateau get the upper hand on you. It will pull you in like a vice.
Maybe try flying with another instructor to get a "different perspective" I find this is a surefire way to keep you on your toes and learn something new.
Don't wait until your private pilot checkride or any checkride for that matter to realize that you have a problem. Get all the kinks worked out and don't let yourself get caught up in these flight training pitfalls.
