I know I have to get it done ASAP! I have the TT (well the ones that count helicopter time) to qualify for a lot of jobs but do not have the multi rating or time!I did my multi there as well. You certainly aren't going to leave feeling proficient in a twin, but you will be ready for the checkride and come away with your ticket. I even had the FAA sit in on my ride (for the oral), and it was no problem at all. It served its purpose, and a few months later when a multi opportunity came along I was able to jump on it while others without the ticket couldn't. I STRONGLY recommend getting your multi ASAP for that reason alone.
Thanks for the info!I did my multi with them but four years ago so my info may be dated. I was pleased with everything during my time there. The planes aren't the prettiest but did the job. You won't get much multi (at all) before the checkride (I had 4.2 total including checkride) and you'll hear a few folks saying its just a rating mill, but I can honestly say I learned a lot and you still had to know your stuff well for the checkride. I actually went down to do my flying and weather set in for days after I completed my training, so I had to come back a couple of weeks later to do the checkride. I think you get up to 5 hours dual total if needed so the weather situation may have been the cause of my low amount of flight time. The mockup helped to figure out where everything was in the plane and you got ample time to practice that when you were doing your ground. They used to send you all of the study info beforehand so you could have all the numbers already in your head. One of their instructors picked me up at DFW and shuttled me between the hotel during training and back to DFW when I left. All in all, a quick, inexpensive outfit, but I was pleased with my time there.
Yeah, it was about the same time I contacted him. He said first of Nov. would be the first slot he had. I really want to get it way before then but I'm keeping Toms place an option either way.Tom filled up? I sent him a note two weeks ago and he got me in the schedule for Oct 29/30
Gotcha. Hopefully you get it sooner, if not, maybe I'll run into you up there...... Short drive for meYeah, it was about the same time I contacted him. He said first of Nov. would be the first slot he had. I really want to get it way before then but I'm keeping Toms place an option either way.
They really do, and this is 2 pilots who flew at UPS feeders saying this. It's not their age that scared me but their maintenance, I have time in a Dash-8-100 that was close to being sent to the breakers for exceeding life limiting hours, and god knows how many hours those Najavos jtrain flew had.That place was a joke 6 years ago, and I'd be surprise if it's not a joke still. Those Travel Air's look like death traps.
