Episode 076 | Training in a time of COVID | Part 2 | Owner Operator Recurrent
What if you’re living the dream? Maybe you’ve got a plane of your own. Not much risk in that right? Or is there?
For those outside the industry, there’s always stuff getting made up about what goes on in private jets, and who knows, maybe some of it’s true, but for you all listening, we all know the reality is that having your own plane isn’t so much about frivolous luxury, but more about business. And enjoyment too of course, but in a time like this, it could also be about safety above all else. Because you’ve got the ability to get around, without much contact with the outside world.
But sometimes, and even with your own plane, you’re still going to be out in the world a bit. And for those who fly things that burn kerosene, yes even just for personal use, you’re going to have to go through recurrent training each year. And chances are, that’s in a sim center. Which is full of people. in close proximity...
So, what’s it like?
Well, luckily (for us at least), friends and show supporters Phil and Daniel just went through it. And they were happy to share their experience with what it was like to spend the week in Dallas. Something nobody really wants to do right about now.
