ATP-CTP Training, Day 1

Day one is in the books.

Overall, I’m pretty impressed with the course down here in Dallas.  Very professional set up and very well organized.

Our instructors are all experienced airline pilots who are very knowledgeable and approachable.  Although there is a little bit of death by powerpoint, it’s not nearly as bad as some Air Force training I’ve been through.

Technical Tip Of The Week

On this show I introduce the tech tip of the week.  “Handling The Big Jets”, by D.P. Davies is a great, readable book that covers some technical aspects of flying large transport category aircraft.  I talk about some of the stuff covered in chapter 1.
