ATPL Theory Month 22: Gnav, Pof, Flight Planning

22 months? Wow what a slog. Heres a quick recap of ATPL Theory Month 22: Gnav, Pof, Flight Planning.

Well there isn’t really that much to say. I have been trying to get up to speed in  Flight Planning, General Navigation and Principals of Flight but after 22 months I am really struggling now. I am just so tired and worn out that after a day of work I don’t really want to study any more.
Some days I feel good and like I could sit the exam but then a few days later I seem to have forgotten a load of the formula!
I saw that there was a sitting just 3 weeks after the one I was going to sit in so I am now sitting the exams between the 1st and 3rd of May for what I hope will be my final exams.
The scores are going up (slowly) across the 3 so hopefully with one more month I hope I will be in a position to pass all 3.
I haven’t done much flying recently either as the weather has been shocking. I think I have managed a grand total of 2.8 hours this month which when you have about 50 hours to build doesn’t cut it at all. I figured I could get a good 5 hours at least this weekend but of course being a bank holiday the weather is crap.
If this weather doesn’t change in the next month or so I am going to seriously have to consider going abroad to somewhere with better weather (so basically anywhere else).
However first things first I need to pass these remaining exams and actually have something that resembles a life.

  1. Keelan. The summit is on sight. You’re almost there. Trust in yourself. What you have done so far proves your potential and more. Good luck 1 -3 May!

    1. I’ve been where you are now Keelan. I finish my exams December last year after 2 years rolling with ground school and exams. In the end I was almost giving up but then I thought about the work I had put into the previous exams and training just to be where I was at that moment and that made me proceed and I finally finished it. Just carry on mate. Book the exams and you’ll be fine.

      1. Cheers Micahel, glad to hear from someone who knows what it’s like. Hopefully the finish line is just there, exams are booked for the very start of May.
