I just listened to ACP065 – How to Become an Airline Check Airman with Robert Guyer, and please accept my highest compliments. Many thanks to Robert for his enthusiasm, insight, and candor. I’m a instrument-rated Private Pilot who is desiring [probably far to much!] to be a flight instructor and eventual airline pilot. Podcast and other information of this nature available via the internet and others is incredibly encouraging to hear and/or read.
I’m going to do all I can to keep the dream alive!
Thanks again!

Thanks Captain Guyer. I do have [at least] one very specific question but would like to discuss “off line,” if that’s possible please. Is there an email I can contact you at or a phone call perhaps?
