I’ve heard that many pilots go to a college to learn from an instructor to gain hours. After they graduate, they often turn around and become a flight instructor at that college to gain even more hours. It’s a good strategy to gain lots of time.
Hi everyone! I’m Robertine and I live in France. I have been planespotting for 5 years and am a student pilot, training on the Robin DR400. I have obtained the BIA and FWA diplomas and am working on my PPL. Feel free to ask me anything :)
My parents work 3 day trips, meaning they are gone for a full three days. where crew scheduling and their schedule determines what city they will finish their day in. then there are usually designated crew hotels within that city that the crew stays at for the night
In airlines that permit the use of both Flaps 30 and 40 for landing the 737-800, what is an approximate “cutoff” runway length (if any) where Flaps 40 is mandated and Flaps 30 no longer permitted regardless of aircraft weight?
Depends on how long my layover is. If it’s min rest I go straight to the hotel, eat and go to sleep. If I have 24-80hrs layover then go to the hotel, go out to eat, hangout with the crew. The next day with the crew or alone I go on hikes, bicycle rides around the city or go to town, go to the beach etc. if it’s a long over night I would take bus or train to another city the next day early am to explore alone or with the crew.
