It's said that a truly excellent pilot uses their superior judgment to
avoid needing their superior skill.
But from time to time we have to ask ourselves: Are our skills really up
to date? And does our judgment really consider all that is known about the
operation of the Cardinal?
There is only one way to answer this question, and that is to measure yourself
against a standard of excellence. To be effective the standard must encompass
the full range of the remarkable capabilities of the Cardinal.
Cardinal Flyers Online is pleased to help bring this level of operational
training to the Cardinal community through our support of Guy Maher's Cardinal Flight Operations
Guy has created a program that leverages his years of experience, his personal
knowledge and his thousands of hours of operating and training in Cardinals. Guy's
knowledge and experience will help all of us find our limits, sharpen our skills
and extend our abilities.
Guy is a very experienced Cardinal instructor, who also offers private Cardinal
specific ground and flight instruction year-round. (Click on the associated link

The operational training that Guy has developed complements the services
provided by the Cardinal Flyers Online. Where the digest and web page focus on the mechanical
details of how things work, how to make them better and the thoughts and comments of
fellow Flyers, Guy's training zeros in on practical training of in-flight actions
and options. The training teaches the things that you should know and consider while
Guy offers this training at special CFO gatherings where only this operational training
is done. There are no technical sessions, no social gatherings, no sight seeing,
only serious talk about Cardinal operations and the
business of maximizing our knowledge and abilities in operating Cardinals.
There will also be opportunities to fly with Guy in scheduled slots wrapped around
these events. Check the event signup pages for availability and scheduling.

Odds are that your Cardinal is more capable than you are. Are you ready to sharpen
your judgment and hone your skill? Are you ready and able to step up to the challenge?
If so, we'll see you at a Cardinal Flight Operations Clinic soon.
