To the gentleman who confessed to being the instructor in this clip:
Part of being a pilot is being able to deal with an unexpected (and sometimes even scary) scenario and improvise a solution.
The above was a perfect opportunity to evaluate your student's nerves under pressure, and you blew it.
What kind of example do you think you're setting by screaming "Jesus Christ", "Come on" and "They will give a pilot's license to anyone these days" over the radio because of something as insignificant as a go-around, in an aircraft with a perfectly functioning engine with a student who's paying you to be there? If you freak out so much about a maneuver as routine as a go around, how the hell can you ever expect that student to handle an emergency situation - where a split second life or death decision really
must be made - successfully?
Flying should not be considered recreational, those who consider it as such should be partaking in less daunting ventures.
I absolutely agree, and learning to fly at an uncontrolled field I've had enough run-ins with weekend warrior elderly pilots and rich M.D.s in Bonanzas to build an even greater contempt for these people than you most likely have - and there was nothing stopping you from writing down the tail number and tracking down his phone number, or finding him on the ramp and giving him a piece of your mind then (and this I have done - the tense "why did you just try and kill me?" conversation).
However, the same goes for flight instructing. Though people treat it like one, the CFI is not a right of passage for building hours
. The habits you teach will stay with your students for the rest of their lives, and (if they're bad habits) may potentially contribute to their premature end. If you blocked an instruction from the local controller and a crash resulted because of your little rant, that day would have ended very differently. Even though you got lucky, your actions set an example to your student that trash talking on an active air traffic control frequency and potentially blocking the controller from issuing instructions is an acceptable behavior, and it is NOT!
If you can't handle the responsibility that was bestowed on you when you got your CFI to "be the bigger man," do us all a favor - take your own advice, and quit.
