A different point of view

Flight log to date Hours flown: 12.5 | Days since I started: 91 | Cost: $2,082.70
Last night I met with another local flight instructor to review what I've learned so far. It ended up being more than a review.
Hearing things explained in a slightly different way really helped clarify things and made other concepts make more sense. We discussed ground reference maneuvers, plane familiarization, wind, setting up for landings, and many other goodies.
One of my coworkers said it perfectly this morning: "It takes more than a single instructor to make a pilot."
Even though I have a great instructor, I feel meeting with another instructor last night was extremely valuable. Jason has told me that I will also fly with another instructor before we finish our training.
Every instructor explains things a little different, so I highly recommend anybody in flight training to meet with another flight instructor or seasoned pilot and have them test your understanding.
For those of you who've been trained, did you use another instructor at various stages of your training? If so, how was your experience?
