Brief Description:

US Army General George Patton once said, “Train like you fight and fight like you train.” He was encouraging troops to train “under the conditions of the expected operational environment.” Doesn’t it make sense for pilots to Train Like You Fly?   

This presentation will highlight differences between training like you fly versus training to a testing standard. We’ll look at lesson plans that pilots at all levels can use to improve pilot skills and to Train Like you Fly.

ARLYNN McMAHON - Author / Presenter

Arlynn McMahon soloed on her 16th birthday. Since then, her feet have rarely been on the ground.    She is a graduate of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and earned an MBA in Strategic Leadership from Amberton University.

Arlynn has helped more than 1,000 students and CFIs fulfill their dreams of flight. She joined Aero-Tech, Inc. at Bluegrass Airport in Lexington, KY as a flight instructor in 1984 and later became vice president, chief instructor and training centers manager responsible for all training and flight activities at the company’s three locations overseeing a fleet of 30 airplanes. 

She is the 2009 National CFI of the Year and 2009 recipient of the NATA Award for Excellence in pilot Training.  She has written articles for general aviation media and training curricula for other flight schools and an OEM.  

Arlynn holds an ATP and an FAA Gold Seal, and Master Instructor with CFI, CFII, MEI and AGI. She has flown over 12,000 accident-free hours, including 9,000 dual given. She has flown general aviation in all 50 states. She was one of the first Designated Sport Pilot Examiners.

She still loves to instruct. She is also an author; her books are published by ASA and available online and wherever pilot supplies are sold. She is a consultant and guest speaker at many regional and national aviation events and seminars.  She works with General Aviation Awards as the Nominations Administrator. She is also a Distinguished Toastmaster, a master gardener, and a volunteer at the county emergency management and preparedness office. She holds an FCC General Amateur (HAM) Radio License and a US Coast Guard “Six-Pack” captain’s license with a sailing endorsement (OUPV Merchant Mariner). Arlynn married her flight instructor, Charlie.  When not in the cockpit they share sailing, SCUBA and all types of fun in the sun.



Brian holds commercial pilot and flight instructor (CFI) certificates with rotorcraft category, helicopter class, and instrument helicopter ratings as well as an advanced ground instructor certificate (AGI) and a remote pilot certificate with a small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) rating.

Prior to coming to work for the company, he obtained his rotorcraft certificates and ratings with the help of ASA training products. "As I was completing my CFII training, I discovered that ASA was right here in my backyard! I approached them with a concept for a flight training product and in short order was offered a job with the company," Snider said.

Bryan says, "For the past 15 years I have been fortunate to work on a wide range of projects from product design and development to multi-platform marketing strategies and implementation"
