Kurt Reesman Consulting, using the www.klrparadigm.com website, intends to stimulate thought about the traditional approach to airman education and training. By definition, a Paradigm is a set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitute a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline. Kurt Reesman Consulting is focused on discovering a fresh, creative, and thought-provoking approach to training pilot’s ranging from pleasure to professional flying – hopefully they are one and the same.

Topic Examples:

Fly Like a Fighter Pilot

In this presentation I share some of the strengths (and weaknesses) of the typical fighter pilot. Experience has taught me that all pilots can, and should, learn from one another. After all, flying is flying no matter what your aviation background. Aviation safety and professionalism knows no boundaries.

Instructor Professionalism

The aspiring pilot only has one avenue to becoming a professional pilot; they must solicit the services of a professional instructor pilot. Instructors directly influence the level of professionalism of the finished pilot product. This presentation discusses attributes of a great instructor – one who inspires.

Pilot Decision Making

While decision-making may seem simple and straight forward, it is far from either of those descriptions. The processes that make up quality decision-making include risk analysis, knowledge of the aircraft, knowledge of self, knowledge of the environment, knowledge of the rules and the ability to balance each of these for every flight. I share a personal story and what I learned about decision making in this presentation.
