Nope you will learn everything in class. I wouldn't stress over it now. Just study when you get there and you will be fine. It's a lot of stuff but nothing too crazy. They will expect you to know/read Jepp charts so maybe brush up on that if you aren't familiar. Other than that, have fun.

Make sure you enjoy free beer night at the hotel (if they're still doing that).

Study hard for the drug screening, it is multiple choice.

Based off of TW's "cryptic" email it sounds like we won't be going paperless at the end of the month because there are pilot who have not activated the EFB's in their possession or they still don't have them. But at least we don't have to bring paper to recurrent anymore if our iPad is up and running... so that's nice.

Can we talk for a minute about how some people have apparently activated their iPhones as the company EFB instead of the iPad? How does that even happen?

That's actually something apple does, sometimes automatically.

Used the same iTunes account. When I set mine up, I used the same account, and it attempted to auto populate the apps onto my phone as well, until I deleted them.

I would audit the paper manuals of the pilots who haven't got their EFB up and running yet, my bet is you would get a lot of coffee spillage.

i didn't find Toms' mail cryptic.
Primarily he sounded frustrated to me.
Yes, if so configured (PM me and i'll show you...) the App Store will push new 'purchases' to every device sharing an iTunes/iCloud account.
This is generally a good thing.
-but-
Going through the AirWatch enrollment process on your phone simply staggers me, as do the reports of uncharged devices and people without charging cables.
I've spent many hours over the last few week helping folks out with the new devices; i think some of the guidance we've received could have been better focussed, but if millennials please help out their fellow pilots if they appear to struggle... and is it too hard to come to work with a 100% charged device that has touched the AW content rep in the past 24 hours....?
Right now there's no documented end in sight.
I know the company needs to provide us a decent Internet pipe in the crew rooms & banks of 120v outlets, but we can move this along as a group..
