Having the training and knowledge to be able to make good decisions is one thing, making them is another.
It just mortifies me when someone crashes and dies in an aircraft. Especially if applying proper training, which they should have had, could have saved their life.
When you fly into the soup it's hard not to trust your instincts regarding aircraft attitude. It's almost impossible to have logic overcome your seat of the pants feeling for a VFR only pilot. All all of you know who are VMC only pilots is to look at your turn coordinator and execute a 180 degree turn while watching your airspeed and altitude. Every BFR I've had this is part of the review.
This should be practiced. Invite a flying friend along, bring your hood, have your friend say "cloud" or "start" and using only the turn coordinator execute a 180 turn while holding your altitude. Somebody will ask how, just start a coordinated turn (the little black ball in the glass tube needs to be centered) while the wing of the "airplane" is lined up with the mark in the bezel. This will provide a 3 degree per second turn. 2 minutes = 360 degrees, 1 minute = 180 degrees.
That one simple instrument can save your butt.
All of us love to ride motorcycles, not all of us have flown a plane. You can fly, the EAA/VAA offers "Eagle Flights", in contrast to "Young Eagle Flights" where an adult can spend an afternoon (or morning) with a participating pilot, lean about flying and take the aircraft up and fly it. Hopefully this will pique your interest in Aviation. One thing, ask LOTS of questions of your volunteer pilot, no question is stupid. I have done these flights, and I am delighted when my guest gets extremely interested in aviation.
