"...straight to the point"
..the tips are short and straight to the point. They serve as reminders of what I should know and have learned, but need to recall from time to time to remain proficient. Keep up the good work.

"...a real benefit to me"
These Pilot Tips of the Week are a real benefit to me. I don't have a bunch of pilot friends to gather round the hangar with and ask questions or to advise me about various situation in which I might become involved while flying. These Tips take the place of that ... it's like being part of an ongoing discussion about flying where I can learn from others and/or reaffirm what I already know.

"...a great idea."
Tips are a great idea. I take them seriously.... If we all get a little better with each flight, eventually we will all arrive at the level of competence that is deserving of our fellow pilots.

"...could save a life"
Just happened to me on Monday, flying up from Florida...(in a Champ). I decided that a wall of thunderstorms and a convective sigmet were bigger than I.....
Turned around and spent a restful night in So Carolina. Thank you for sharing those tips...they could save a life!
