Day 12: Home Stretch!

Today's Lessons
  • VFR Depatures (Continued)
  • Runway Incursions
There's an energy in the classroom now. We're getting close to the end of academics, and people are anxious to be done with the "book learnin'" stuff. I know I am.

There's been a lot of information shotgunned at us over the past couple weeks. It's really concentrated, and we really do need the breaks every 45 minutes to an hour so we can stand up and clear our heads. After a while, it becomes hard to stay awake and keep absorbing. I estimate that, for the 8.5 hours we're there every day, around 2-3 hours of that is spent on break or lunch. At first I thought it was excessive (yeah, yeah - how can someone have too many breaks?) but as the days wore on it got tougher to keep sharp and fresh.
