I don’t really know how many chapters my life covers, honest. Still, a new chapter started today with the commencement of my type rating training. It was a fairly long day, I got to the airport at about 08:40 for a 09:00 start and finished just after 18:00. After an introduction to the airline we went through the vast pile of manuals, booklets and forms that cluttered our desks. After lunch we went through the various websites and other resources we would be using to access information (up-to-date manuals, roster, briefings, airline news and so on), contact relevant people and track progress. The day finished up with a bit of paperwork and document checking in order to progress towards the issue of relevant ID.
