Haha I'm not concerned about my instructor being a spy. I've known him for years. I did however worry that he'd have a heart attack or something, but not anymore because I'm so far along that I know how to land a plane, and the emergency frequency where I can contact to have an paramedic waiting. We learned all about safety on day one.
I'm more worried about crashing, but you have to put that fear past you. We were practicing engine cuts once and finding fields to land, well actually just do a low pass, cause we can't land in private property unless it is a real emergency. It was my second day and as we made the low pass the instructor told me not to raise the flaps all at once, but I got in a hurry and was zoned out. I raised the flaps all at once, and we stalled and came within inches of clipping a tree. That was the only time I was ever scared. Other than that I'm totally fine.
Haha sorry that was kinda long
