Running a flight school can be as complex as offering multiple ratings with multiple aircraft and multiple instructors or as simple as a single CFI with one airplane teaching one rating. No matter the size or ratings offered everything you do, say, and show sends a message to the student. The question is what message?

Are you sending the message of a well-organized, thoughtful, friendly, and safety program or a message of a disorganized, chaotic school that treats safety as a required compliance instead of an agreed desire?
