I wanna let you in on a little secret. The pilot had to do a lot of things right before he greased it on. By the way, a smooth landing is not always the best landing - but that is a different subject.
So here's what you MUST do to get your passengers to clap:
First, you have to get your license so you can carry passengers.
Second, you have to learn to fly really well so you can set up good landings. Here's the quick way.
Third, you have to learn how to make really good landings. I'll tell you how. (It's not hard.)
Here's the good news. You don't have to fly hundreds or thousands of hours to accomplish all three! You really don't.
I could tell you a tale about a high-time, professional pilot who flew so poorly that it would have tears running down your cheeks from laughing so hard. Keeping the left seat warm for a long time does necessarily lead to excellence. Don't get me wrong; excellence requires practice. But you've got to practice doing it right!
Many pilots will tell you that some of the best landings they ever made were when they soloed.
The point I am making is that learning to do it right when you are first getting started is the easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to go through all three steps.
