Or........How to land the damn thing if he croaks it “qualification”
OK.....a bit sexist I know......but you get the drift.
This is obviously not a real qualification as such.
It is intended to give the person who usually sits in the right seat some practical experience they can draw on should they need to take control and improve the chances of getting down in one piece.
Why don’t you take the Kids to Disney while the other half learns what it’s all about.
No way I could teach Cath how to use the radio or land a plane, she wanted to know about it from someone who really knew what they were doing.

Who knows, maybe you’ll come back with a training visa and get your PPL!
