Lucky or Good?

I visited a British flight school and remembered every Private Pilot had to pass seven (7) examinations in addition to the practical examination in order to be granted a license.

I think this is an incredible burden to put on prospective pilots and is possibly one of the reasons for Brits arriving our shores to earn their certifications. Then again, you’ve got to think British pilots have to be some of the most knowledgeable pilots in the air.

What do you think?
