    Here's an idea, a non-flying plane on gimbal so that you can get a feel for the controls while sitting on the ground. These days you could easily see using an electric motor and rechargeable batteries for power, maybe put a guard on the prop for to keep the lawyers at bay.

    Maybe the flight school should have a cheaper simulator so the student can sit there for five hours of rudder peddle practicing up and down the runway only without flight before moving on to actual flight.
    My brother had numerous dual lessons in our Chief, but just didn't get the hang of steering a taildragger. He wasn't that interested and gave up on flying

    Perhaps one that makes a raucous noise in the headset if the student doesn't put the proper wind inputs while taxiing.
