Speaking of training...
Classmate Willy studying after hours back at the dorm.
For the last couple weeks I've been in Pennsylvania at the Eastern ARNG Aviation Training Site enrolled in the 5 week Standardization Instructor course. This is a rather intensive course intended to teach us how to train crew chiefs to become flight instructors. We've been through the systems phase, and just finished the first flight stage. Next we cover administrative tasks and classroom instruction, followed by more flying, this time at night using night vision goggles. The class is a small group - six people with four instructors. That alone should say something about the pace of the course.
