Lots of great pointers here for sure.
For those not extending your arm fully I once again suggest throwing at D20 for awhile, this helps you extend that arm and at the same time become good at the D20.

To extend your arm, I suggested turning your targetting systems off.

I would practice from closer than the oche to throw at the board with complete extension.  Target is irrelevant.  You start closer because you don't want to miss the board.  As you get the idea that the dart will hit the board, move further back.  Targetting is still irrelevant. Move back until you are at the oche again.  DO NOT AIM at anything beyond the board.

If you are doing Flight School, now is the time to integrate A2 practice.  Get all the darts to land in the same area.  ie, repeat the stroke over and over again.  NO TARGETTING.  Once you get good at this, introduce a target.

I will be dollars to donuts that this will cause an immediate reversion to the old style, especially if the player starts spot shooting.  Introduce the target by AREA.  eg. center of the board.  Around the T12, Around the T15, Around the D7 etc, etc... success is defined by maintaining the extended stroke, NOT HITTING THE TARGET!  If you hit it, chalk it up to luck and smile.  Keep stroking into these areas, and be patient.... the grouping will begin to coalesce around your target, without strain or force as you continue to extend the stroke.  DO NOT WORRY ABOUT MISSING! 

That is the last thing on your mind.  Once you have a group that is within two flight widths in diameter, add the A1 drill.

The whole idea here is that you want consistency first.  Anyone can fluke a dart into the T20 from time to time.  Few can group tight enough to hit a 180 regularly.  The grouping comes first.

Consistency is based on consistency of movement, not consistency of result.  The result in the dartboard says NOTHING about how you threw the darts.  

Do not confuse hitting your target with throwing well.  

As you throw learn to throw better, the results will come.
