Cracking the virtual books

The studying has begun. My airline uses home based study for the first portion of training. I log onto a website and click through slides. Mind numbing. Very monotone voice reads text to me. I did a similar course when I first started 4 years ago.

The systems are similar to what my last plane had. Some things appear to be easier, some more complex.

I do have a slight leg up in that I've flown this new plane on Microsoft Flight Simulator a lot. There are very detailed models of planes out there. Some are better than others. The better one's cost money but are worth it.

In order to get the most out of it I will take my daughter to day care on days I need to study. Today is officially my day off. My first scheduled study day isn't until Friday, but I'm getting a head start.

Gonna need to make a LOT more coffee.
