T-6 Complete!

Sign in to follow this  


My Formation checkride and last Low-Level were yesterday. My complete dork of a Form partner and I did really well, we both received "excellent's". I had about 5 minutes to prepare for my Low-Level after the checkride, but luckily one of my flightmates was cool enough to do pretty much all my flight planning for me. He was already done with T-6's and knew I'd have min-time between my checkride and LL, so he hooked me up!

The LL was fun and quick, no biggie.

So now I get to sit around until next Tuesday for my Track Select! I'll write more after that and (hopefully) let you know what T-1 academics are like!

Glad to here that! Keep up the great work.

What do you do during Low-Level flights (besides fly low, I assume)? What extra is needed in perparing?

You plug the winds and temperature into an excel spreadsheet to figure out what airspeed you need to fly to hold 210 groundspeed. Other than that, it's just navigating visually.
