Sounds like I'm at about the same stage as you paddywak. Slowly but surely going insane! Haha. Not sure how knowing about the inner workings of circuits and computers helps fly a helicopter... Shocked

Think yourself lucky when I did it there was negative marking
Also seem to remember having to flight plan a DC 10 from Dulles to gatwick !!! Always thought that working out point of no return and curvature of the earth would be useful. Yup 20 years later still never used either Rolling Eyes

Haven't got a Scooby, JTL. I didn't understand it when I studied it, the study material didn't explain why it was there, and I don't understand it now. Time well spent, eh? Head Banging

The author of the study material has previous experience of the computer industry, I guess he wants to share his knowledge of binary mathematics in case one of us wants to pull out some of the circuitry in a AW 139.

Fat chance of sitting in one let alone flying one. Alot of the content appears to be bias towards flight engineers, although it is nice to know how some of the more complicated systems work, I for one will be concentrating on getting the basic stuff ingrained in the CPU "sorry the brain"

Try to keep a positive outlook on it Smile

While many of the topics may appear irrelevant, you may find yourself one day on a type rating course for a more complicated type.

These can be intense, with a large amount of information to take in over a short space of time... and while much information on your ATPL syllabi may never be used again you could find yourself grateful for some of these seemingly pointless topics when you need to pass a type rating exam in 2 weeks time!

Now look loachboy remember who has to do your line check ( me) so we will see how good your flight plan is. Just because I left the ac pooleys behind I felt it was infair for our ops inspector to be too critical and as for not telling the pax to sit down and check their seat belts Crying or Very sad

Sounds like a standard line check for most.
