I wrote this topic for studentpilot.com,but i thought it would be good for this forum since its full of arguments and political discussions on topics of Muslims and the middle east. Maybe someone will learn something from it.
For you that read my First Flight! Thread you will know that my CFI took me up in moderate turbulence and winds gusting to 30 kts. Well some questioned my Instructors decision to go up. Well he had every confinendce in he self as a pilot to go up he was just concered about me.
The way he handled those winds and the short final into 28 at ROC were very impresseve and he reactions from gust of wind and turbulance were very quick and sharp. A very impressive pilot.
When I arived for my Intro i was introduce to my CFI, for some reason when my CFI walked in there was a strange feeling in the room(typical americans), but it didnt bother me. I was very impressed with he orginization and his knowlage, he has 4 more students and he just graduated from the UofR and his english is suburb. No my dad is a VERY patriotic man and there is nothing wrong with that and has taken 9/11 and the War very serious. When i told my father my CFI's name he was shocked and alittle hesitant but i told him he was very nice and a very impressinve pilot.
MY CFI's name is Akhtar Hussain Majoka and is a Muslim American, im not sure if he was born here or what counry he is from but his english is excelent and he had some American features in his apperance.Now he was only to be my temp. instructor but i think i might keep him. I feel proud to have him as my instructor to show that not all muslims are anti american or terriosts. I have a great amount of trust in him and i enjoy flying with him. IF i ever hear a feelow pilot talk about him which i have a feeling happens i will set them straight. It allso tought a good lesson to my father
Ok im done talking....happy flying!!
