Post training update

It’s been a while and a few of you have messaged to see what the latest is, so I thought I would give a quick post training update.

No good news to report yet, unfortunately, the hunt still continues. To be honest, there probably won’t be many updates until there is a development of some sort to report on.
The one thing I must say is I have met some many great guys and girls during my training who all deserve jobs of their own, so the competition per role is sky high.
Some tips that I can suggest from my first few months, however.
1. When you get a sim assessment, do a sim prep a few days before your assessment. This allows you to have time to practice it before the big day. You don’t want the first time you are doing something to be on an actual simulator assessment.
2. Keep your practicing on a home simulator. After finishing my training it was 3 months before my MCC / JOC. You will be surprised how quickly things like your scan and your “feel” for flying goes.
I now make sure I “fly” in a simulator every few days at least to try to prevent the erosion of the scan and the flying skills.
3. When picking a JOC in particular, ask how much raw data IR flying you will do and if you will cover airline profiles. While the scenario based MCC flown on autopilot are great, it is not actually what the airlines are asking you to do on an assessment. A JOC that covers the raw data profiles in detail will set you up much better for success.
Apart from this, I wouldn’t expect much updates unless I do an exciting trip on my SEP, land something or think of a post that may be helpful for people coming up behind me.

Thinking of training via the modular route? Or started and still have questions? Then read The Essential Modular Flight Training Guide.
