My class back in circa 06 was full at 16 with 14 graduates.
My class was required to speaks English good. That requirements was dropped about three years agos.
Clearly there was no requirement to WRITE it that way?! Lol
That was dropped with the req for a college degree...
Why woulds theyre beez?
The November class had 3, the December class had 4. Maybe there will be 5 in the January class!
I’m pretty sure there are 17 in the January class.
There are 2 classes in January.
We were told there are 8-10 in our Jan 7 class. Is it common to have people not show up?
At any regional, it’s typical for a couple of people to not show up. To a lesser extent, it even happens at the majors.
Not sure how the shutdown is going to play out, but I am scheduled to take my ATP written tomorrow, which is not happening. Hopefully I can still come to class if it is still shut down.
I wish you the best. I’m sure there are others in a similar situation. If you haven’t already, I would contact recruiting and see what they have to say.
Thank you. I emailed my HR rep. and pilot recruitment this morning. I know in my class of 3 at ATP CTP we all need the written. Keeping my figers crossed.
It's been so long since I have taken any FAA written. I thought that the Feds outsourced all of that and all you had to do was go to any FAA-approved written test facility. To take your written exam. I didn't think that the Fed Shut Down had anything to do with it.
I just saw today that in spite of the government shut down. The FAA has announced that the written test and IACRA portions of the Feds are back up.
Any insight from the guys that have recently started class? I have a class in Feb. I’m a CFII/MEI from a college program. Never flew a jet.
I fully intend on giving it all I got during class. Just starting to get a little nervous as I have no jet experience. Are the other guys in class mostly from CFI backgrounds? Is the training department good with guys with no jet time?
Anything I could be doing to help myself now? They don’t release any material before class. I’m working on the ATP written. I’ve gotten current with instrument approaches. All the instrument stuff I’ve been teaching for the past couple of years has been in a G1000. In general, any pointers?
I came from a similar background and had no problems. You'll get all the study guides you need. When you get limitations and systems make flashcards of everything. Making them yourself helps retention. If your handwriting sucks make digital flashcards with Anki (app/web interface). For now, just keep doing what you're doing. The folks that struggle are typically the career changers and those who took a break. 0 jet time is nothing to worry about.
Attitude is everything. Jet time is only something...
