Is there anywhere that sells 57 cockpit posters?
Thanks in advance.
They aren't still giving those away with your initial loadout? Or are you trying to grab one in advance? I'm assuming online searches have been unsuccessful.
They've got them in the Pubs room with all the other maps, approach plates, etc.
hmmm thanks. i didnt get one with issue...and no a 2 page google search didn't turn up much. I only put about ten minutes into the search though. Thanks for all the help.
Pepe said it- Pubs room's got 'em...Both versions IIRC.
Nthing pubs room.
That sucks...we definitely got one with our pubs issue...if I still had it I'd mail it to you. Maybe the guys who work in the pubs room could point you in the right direction, at least.
Go and sit in the CPTs. More hands on.
Agreed.... And seriously its not like the thing is that complex. If you can drive a car and use a GPS without 3 months of training your not gonna have any problem with a 206.
Well, someone obviously can't remember primary... or maybe you were just that good. Way to bust on a kid trying to collect study material.
"Back in my day, we learned to hover by balancing a ball on top of a stick." --random old pilot.
Ya, but you can't take those home. I used to sit facing the wall and chair-fly checklist (early fams, kinda hard to chair-fly learning to hover) and RI flights (Need the Charlie version for that). CPTs are great if you've got a buddy and want to go through EPs, but that's about it.
No dude more there are things he could better spend/waste money on. I know the guys at Sportys and Wings need to put their kids through college and all but there are seriously better things he could be spending money on to leg him up in flightschool. Remember your only in the aircraft for half the checkride, and thats if your lucky and the Oral goes fast.
That's what she said!
Yeah, but 1-2hrs in throwing swtiches in the CPT will do a lot more for your muscle memory than will sitting in front of a poster. If the CPTs are all taken, you can also go to the hangar and sit in the helos.
A quick caveat to Pags' great point: If you do go to the hangar, ask the maintenance guys if you can sit in or open up a particular helo and don't actually throw switches.
I'm also a big fan of muscle memory development in the CPTs. If you don't have to think much about "uh, how do I accomplish this checklist" you can focus more on actually flying.
Don't they start stressing CRM in the HTs? Can't the other dude run the checklist? Besides, is there that much to the checklists? Landing Checks? Yep, the skids are still there.
Don't forget "is the spinny thing being spinny at full spinny?" Nf/Nr: 100% (God, how do I remember that?)
Yes they do, Challenge and response. The instructor reads the checklist, the student throws the switches. And I've always liked landing at Air Force fields as the tower is required to say "Check gear down and locked" which I respond, "Skids down and locked"
we make them! 24" x 30" with checklist and notes spaces also
You may make them, but you don't sell them here without the webmaster's permission.
I have a C photo of the cockpit if you want. Took it when I was broke-dick at Site 8 last week, watching the sunset from the back seat.
I'm guessing that since this thread is over a year old that it's no longer needed
I just finished primary at Vance and I'm going helos. Could somebody hook me up with some insight about what to expect at Milton? It sucks that I have no idea what it's like to fly Navy or what to expect at Milton. Thanks.
It seems like the guys coming from Vance I know didn't have too much trouble with the transition.
They will let you sit in on some briefs to see the difference, but again, according to the guys I know coming from there it wasn't really necessary.
You WILL have to perform emergency procedures in the actual aircraft that you are flying though. And if you aren't scheduled for the day, it's expected that you can study on your own without being told to come in and sit around for 12 hours.
See if typing the word 'Vance' into the search box answers some of those questions.
(Quick- before the "use the search function" dogpile begins!)
