This movie clip from 1953, is really something. What strikes me most is how much of learning to fly is the same , yet a lot has changed too. The first thing I noticed where the lack of headsets being used and the clothes people wore for flying. Obviously the total price of learning to fly is way more, but the theory of flight, the progression your lessons will take and they sense of accomplishment are all the same!
I love when they say ground courtesies - safety and good manners go hand in hand :)
