    Been watching a YouTube training series featuring John Burt as the CFI. Anyone know how to get hold of him?

    Thanks

    He used to do tailwheel and aerobatics out of a little grass strip near Knoxville called Sky ranch (not sure if he still does). Give them a call and maybe they can put you in contact with him.

    He did my instrument. Hes expensive but he got me done in the legal minimum. 10 hours desktop sim 5 in the plane. Says his ppl students usually take checkride around 40hrs. 75hr for instructor and 155 for the 172.

    Hes good has a bit of military gruffness sometimes.
    Hes based out of a few hangers at kdkx. I dont have his number anymore but call down there they probably know how to reach him.

    Between earning my PPL and starting my IR, I did an 8 lesson intro to aerobatics with John in his Citabria. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and he was a very skilled and competent CFI. Like P7, his military gruffness didn't bother me a bit as I too spent some time vacationing with my Uncle.

    My first lessons stands out, as I thought the flight would be a scrub. We had a 70 degree crosswind in the high teens gusting into the 20's, but he said we go. And off we went, that first lesson was nothing special, just feeling out the plane a little bit, steep turns, stalls, falling leafs, etc. He had me fly that thing to short final, and me being nervous as hell (1st time in a tail dragger and unfamiliar with the plane), I was all over the place. He took over on short final and set that plane down soft as a feather in pretty trying conditions. After that, I knew I had nothing to worry about flying with him. The rest of the lessons were a blast.
