In a nutshell the goal of the Coach is to 1) Be There, 2) Observe, and 3) Report. In my opinion, the most challenging parts of this course is learning the relevant parts of the SIM & IRM and applying your newly developed skills in your Ground Evaluations. For the Air Evaluations, you should be able to stay within 20 feet proximity of your “student”.
