There was joke going around in EFS amongst the flight cadets and instructors that if you can taxi this aircraft on the centreline of the taxi track then you can fly any aircraft in the world! It was a tail dragger with an elevated cockpit, so for taxying one has to move crabwise once to the left and then to the right. But more vicious and dangerous part was as the engine power was opened up for takeoff it would swing 180 degrees…If timely rudder application is not made. It is quite amusing and deeply shocking..When you are all set to takeoff.. to find that the runway is behind you!

The Training schedule was tough both physically and mentally. There was always a lurking fear of elimination at each stage of training. The first round of elimination takes place when the instructor feels that you are not ready yet to go ‘SOLO’, then that Cadet gets two more flights extension, may be with a different instructor. If there is improvement and if the Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) feels confident of sending him ‘Solo’, he is sent on a solo flight or else he returns home…that is a big shocker!.
