Question: When you were in the back of the airplane those two times with the student in front with Pat, was the student rated in single engine seaplanes?

The same FAA that is shutting General Aviation down across the country? Let's just give them more fuel for their efforts.

If the FAA is shutting General Aviation down across the country, they must have done it when I wasn't watching because I don't see that happening. I do see a sport pilot community that wasn't there only a few years ago. I also see a greatly relaxed medical standard starting for most general aviation pilots. However, I do see a decline in general aviation due to excessive litigation, product liability, insurance, and other expenses that are largely outside the scope and control of the FAA.
I don't see how that enters the picture, but let's turn the basic question around a bit. Let's say you find out after the fact that someone who was not legal to fly had taken you for a flight. You also find out during the flight that the person lacks the skills to safely operate the airplane. Upon reflection you realize that had there been an accident, that person would likely have claimed you were the PIC even though there had been no such discussion in advance. As you walk away from this situation you know that the individual is going to do the same thing to some other unsuspecting pilot and that the individual will continue to put the safety of others in peril through his operation. Would you want someone to step in and correct that situation or would you want such a thing to continue?

It takes an act of god to get anything accomplished.
