‘Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.’

Clint Eastwood

The making and receiving of calls on mobile phones in the simulator is a no-no. For the instructor, it’s an insult to your trainees, and if it’s the trainees who want to use them, it’s an insult to you the teacher. If they are on board, they should be switched to silent mode, and no calls made or accepted during the ‘flight’.
