In a few days a NOTAM will be issued.
NOTAM - Due to extensive flight training by a pilot who's been on the ground for more than two months, all pilots should use extreme caution in the vicinity of the following:
THE ENTIRE CONTIGUOUS UNITED STATES
Finally had my schedule loaded into my profile today. I did have to remind the training center I was still waiting for IOE.
The group that schedules IOE is always busy and it's a small group thus it's easy for pilots to fall through the cracks. Sometimes pilots take advantage of this for the extra time off. I've been off for almost 3 weeks since I took my check ride....I'm ready to get back in the air.
I have no idea where my full uniform is. I know where pieces of it are.
My suitcase has been sitting in the guest bedroom for 2 months. I have to go back through it and think about what I need on the road.
I lost my windscreen for my headset (currently a Telex ANR 500). I bought a new generic one yesterday....it's really big. Eh.
My trip starts with a dead head on Saturday. Nice 12 hour overnight. It's a 5 day trip. Long. Rare.
The first true overnight is a city where my in laws live. With 17 hours of rest I told them they have to pick me up from my hotel.
All the overnights are decent length. Nothing less than 12 hours with the longest being 19 hours! Fairly unproductive.
I return home on Thursday and will have flown an estimated 23 hours in the cockpit. IOE should be done at that point.
Since I will be "working" for 6 days straight I have to be off Friday. My plan is to hit the LA Autoshow. I've gone every year for the last 3 years.
The blogs will soon be interesting again!
