Independent Instructor's Blog (Aviation)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Instructor's Blog - IndependentFlightInstructors.com
WEB ADDRESS: http://independentflightinstructors.com/instructors/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Learn about various aviation topics that are on the minds of our instructors. The blogs focus on common errors or gaps in pilot knowledge, procedures and technique. Rule and procedure changes are discussed as well. The instructor's blogs try to make a clear distinction when discussing procedures that are universal (for example: entering a hold), and techniques that make flying easier (for example: ways of determining what type of hold entry to use).
MY REVIEW: This Independent Flight Instructor's Blog is an excellent idea, and a must-read for all pilots. The blog entries are made by Jordan Miller.
The blog is updated with very detailed entries, twice a month on average. (On a whim, I emailed the author, and he said his entries take so much time because he is careful to cover everything. (Which is true, judging by the articles I've read.)
So, this is where subscribing via the Kindle comes in. Since the blog is updated on average every other week, and its only a dollar a month, it makes economic sense to subscribe to it so you get the updates as soon as they are made.
