A hint of turbulence jittered the pilot's seat during a banking maneuver that filled the cockpit windshield with the vast blueness of the Chesapeake Bay. After a quick series of adjustments and a moment of indecision came the satisfying thump of wheels touching down. It felt mighty good to be back on the ground. But then again, the student never left. At Middle River Aviation, instructors can teach the fundamentals of flight in an airplane or in a new full-motion simulator that pitches and rolls in every direction - even straight into a death spiral.
