After many years of wanting to fly commercially, I was just recently hired by a 121 airline in Alaska. Very excited and thankful that this opportunity was offered to me considering the current job market. Will start ground school on the 2nd. There will be 10 days of classroom, 24 hours of sim training then 6-10 hours of flight training in the Beech 1900. Fortunately I was able to obtain all the training materials in advance. There is quite bit of information to learn in a short period of time, but I was expecting this. Could use some advice from people that have gone through this before. From what I understand, study groups are helpful. What is a good group size? Note that there will be 8 people going through training.
