The Difference Between Knowledge and Proficiency

“450 hours - and 150 of those in the last 60 days.  You’d think my landings, particularly in the past 60 days were nailed.  So did I.  Then I was introduced to a Crosswind Concepts session.  The concept of a good pilot is always learning couldn’t ring truer than at Crosswind Concepts.  I was brought back to the very basics of stick and rudder flying and was able instantly to regain that all important sight picture of a cross wind approach and landing.  In my opinion, no check ride is complete without a few simulator rides in the Crosswind environment.  It’s the difference between knowledge and proficiency.”
