Just wondering what the dress code is and how much to pack for Indoc and what follows after Indoc...current training timeline after Indoc would be useful to plan accordingly

Thanks!

I think you canít wear jeans. Someone correct me if Iím wrong. Collard polos. 2weeks for Indoc. 2 weeks for systems. Have fun. Build relationships. Cpt and sims separates the men from the boys. (Women from the gals). They will call you to schedule CPT and sims.

It is business casual during class. No jeans! They held a charity fundraiser that if you gave $10 you could wear jeans to the office for a week. The entire class donated .... otherwise Dockers or other dress pants, polos, button down shirts is the norm. Hotel has ok workout area in the basement. Lots of food and beverage establishments nearby. 2 weeks of Indoc wasn't too bad. An easy learning pace that most everyone can do. 2 weeks of systems is a little harder, but still not bad. I thought Cockpit Procedures was extremely difficult. They basically give you 96 hours (Mon thru Thursday) to memorize every callout and flow checklist item for both the First Officer AND Captain and be able to do basic FMS operations and then test you on Friday morning. I started studying weeks before I started and still found it hard. Look up the syllabus, read and understand it, and start memorizing. Private message with more specific questions as needed. Good luck!
