First week

Bill here. First week has been completed. 6 cold days, with multiple days below 15 degrees. Preflighting is fun! Lol. Just remember a hat and gloves! (I didn’t on day 1!) Oops! Maneuvers…fun times. TOLs. Only thing I can say is keep the descent in…I enjoy reading these topics and cannot wait to continue my training!

Bill,

I remember during my training it got too cold that he had to take the extra containers of oil inside to warm them up before we could service the airplanes as the oil was as thick as molasses.

Thank you for the update, keep them coming.

Glad to hear things are going well! I’m sure you’re thankful for the heat once that prop starts spinning!

Bill,

Glad to hear your first week at Morristown was eventful! I am only right down the road at Trenton, it’s been cold and rainy/snowy down here too. Hat and gloves are a must during this time of the year.

Well week 1 got me 7 days of flights. Week 2 the weather hasn’t been kind! Snow Monday and Thursday, and winds too high on Tuesday! But its part of the game! Look forward to possibly running in to you Brady!

William,

Nice and early, usually the best time of the day to fly. Let us know how it goes.

Good luck, Will!

Indeed, it is fast, but you’ve been taught everything that you need to know up to this point. Just focus on what you need to do and you’ll be fine.
