I like the training idea, and judging by what you have said so far, I am guessing you don't need to be a professional sponsored pilot of 20 years to get someone comfortable enough to fly a trainer plane on their own. Do you have any resources one could read, watch, or look at to be that trainer to get the experience out there?
My experience was because I was pretty much self taught, trial and error, process of elimination till I got it right. Other then getting verbal advice here on the forums and from YT there was no one there to guide my sticks for me. That's one of the reason I had to build so many planes, might have some stubbornness in there as well
AMA has been acutely aware of this method since 1998 and 2000 at their Grand Event. I gave a demonstration at Muncie HQ with officials watching. My point is that this method should have been out in the public and in every club, decades ago but they chose to ignore it. If it had been, you and thousands of others wouldn't have had to crash many times to finally learn. The secret to my method might be something that you can do yourself. That is to concentrate on what your thumbs are doing on the sticks. There should be no quick jerky movements. Think of how you steer a bicycle or drive a car. You barely move the handle bars or steering wheel. I have every trainer I fly trimmed out so it will fly hands-off. Also, I don't have the plane flying too fast or too slow, sort of a Goldy Locks setting...flying at just the right speed. Slightly above landing speed, maybe a little more. For those who shoot guns, you squeeze the trigger not pull it.
That's about all I could tell you in print. You could practice using a simulator and/or "dry fly" sitting in front of the tv or anywhere. Pretend that your flying and barely move the stick. BTW, using my method, my students almost never have a problem facing the plane coming towards them. No control reversal problems, even on their very first lesson. Again, if given the chance, I can prove everything I claim.
Some people think that kids aren't interested. No, it's not because of instant gratification. Everyone wants to learn ASAP. Come to think of it,
if it was the instant gratification thing, my method is tailor made for instant gratification. I've trained many kids, from 9 years to teens.
I spent 7 hours one day teaching around 100 cub scouts. I had to quit when I recognized the same kids coming for a second round. lol
I can't get an answer from AMA HQ as to why they won't send someone to me so I can train them what I call the Ragland Technique. So maybe someone should try to contact them and ask them why. They know full well that it works as well as I claim.
