Controllers are great but...

At KORL... Due to Class B ceiling above and catering to the executive jets, a regular joe can wait at the end of the runway or be sent on a cross country while in the pattern just to accommodate a biz jet that hasn't yet made the IAF. It wastes tons of time. Neither MCO or SFB are convenient for quick business trips.

One day I was cleared to land same time a student was right below me on instruments. Tower was not aware. Thanks for the guy behind me turning base.

VISITED DURING TRAINING

ORLANDO EXECUTIVE IS AN AIRPORT THAT IS STUDENT FRIENDLY, WHAT DO I MEAN BY THIS? SOME AIRPORTS THAT YOU VISIT AS A PILOT ARE NOT TO KEEN IN HELPING YOUNG INSPIRING OR NEW PILOTS AND THE TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS SCARE THE HELL OUT OF THEM, ORLANDO EXECUTIVE BEING A BUSY AIRPORT (AND ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT ACCOMPANIES THIS TRAFFIC) IS VERY EASY TO ENTER ITS AREA OF OPERATION FIRST TO THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS ON DUTY, THEY ARE ALL VERY PROFESSIONAL AND HELPFUL. THE PEOPLE IN SHOWALTER FBO ARE VERY PROFESSIONAL FRIENDLY AND ORIENTED TO HELP ANYONE.
