  1. For the CFI for passing up an opportunity to teach you NEVER let a passenger leave the plane without stopping the engine (or in the case or airlines having a trained ground person direct them in safe manner away from the side that is still running….even that gives me pause.)

  5. The instructor passed his FAA CFI Checkride - that's how.
