Student Pilot Guide, Part II | September/October 2014

FAA Safety Briefing, September/October 2014: Our cover is a tribute to the long-standing tradition of cutting and displaying a student's shirt tail after a successful solo flight. The tradition harkens back to the days of tandem trainers, where instructors, seated behind their student, would tug on their student's shirt tail to get their attention. Removing the shirt tail is thus regarded as a sign of an instructor's confidence in the student's flying abilities.

The September/October 2014 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on the world of student pilots and airmen-in-training. As a continuation to our last student pilot-themed edition in 2012, this issue explores additional tips and resources to help provide a successful path to initial pilot certification, as well as provide a refresher to those more experienced aviators.
