"Nine Principles of Light Aircraft Flying", by Rich Stowell

Award-winning Master Flight Instructor Rich Stowell recently published a paper identifying the first principles of light airplane flying. Nine principles are offered, divided into the three categories; Mindset, Motion, and Mechanics. The paper explores the principles vis-à-vis familiar concepts that stem from them, as well as examples of the principles applied during training. Connections between the principles and representative examples of training content and activities are illustrated as well.

Learn - Do - Fly

A good pilot is a healthy mix of mathematician, scientist and athlete, part mechanic and all curiosity.  They must know everything about their airplane;  control surfaces, power plant, the avionic systems, tire pressure.  Because, while the heart of an airplane is metal, fabric or composite;  the bloodstream fuel and oil, its brain is the person who flies it.
