Default Transition training with David Maib

So this weekend I flew down to Orlando to do my transition training with David Maib. I can't say enough good things about David or his plane. New Smyrna Beach is a great place to do the training as well. I spend a total of 7 hours in the air with David and 2.5 on the ground. We accomplished 32 landings at multiple controlled and uncontrolled airports as well as a low approach over the runway for the shuttle program at Cape Canaveral.

David has a comprehensive syllabus he uses, but it's not like he is just checking off boxes during the flight, he really works to ensure you understand the flight characteristics of the aircraft and what to look out for on the first and ever other flight with your 10.

Anyone looking for some good transition training in a great location with a really nice plane (it even has air conditioning which is great in FL) send me an email or PM and I will get you his contact information.

The EAA web site (do a search for "LODA") has his phone number and email address, too.

Default David Maib - Excellent Help

+1, although I didn't take transition training I also spent time with David Maib over the last few days, as a Texas Transient troubleshooting a starting circuit anomaly. I can't overemphasize how David is an outstanding ambassador for GA, will help (along with many other pilots and builders at KEVB) a stranger in need, and has a calm and enthusiastic personality.

Default +1

Another vote for David -- can't say enough! If you're on the East Coast and are looking for RV-10 transition training, I highly recommend you give him a shout.

Yes, excellent training and I highly recommend David. The best $1000-$1500 you will spend on your build. Class of Nov 2011.

Default Great experience

I did my transition training first week of March, and I absolutely can second all above. David a a great person and after 36 landings in also very gusty conditions I feel comfortable sitting in my own -10 getting ready for the first flight. David is very flexible to add to the training syllabus we put sessions in for our small airfields circuits and short runways as well as soft fields. I have a bunch of goPro videos including high power stalls from the rear pax seat, very impressive. I'll see if I find time in the next days to post them here.

I can highly recommend David and NSB.

Regards
Michael

Default Full power stalls video with David Maib

as promised here is one video I shot from the rear seat with my goPro, interesting enough when flying the full power stall and looking straight ahead it didn't feel bad at all but looking through the side window it was very steep.
