Default Training Update

Heard that the oral pass rate is at 98% with no double failures ever since ETHOS was implemented. On the flip side, the sim washout rate is apparently still fairly high. As someone who will be heading out to St. Louis in the very near future, what are some good ways to prepare/what should I be expecting?

Go observe other sims, find a study group and chair fly/practice call outs.

Bring a bulletproof vest if you are a jogger. Better yet, bring a bulletproof covering for whatever you have that you value. Bulletproof undies maybe? Better still, do your jogging on the hotel treadmill.

There are probably some real nice areas in St Louis, but not so much around the contract hotel.

Bring a ball and throw it back and forth with your sim partner while running your flows and calls from memory. The actual airplane stuff is easy. Not remembering flows and calls when they’re task saturated is what gets people, then they get flustered, then they start making real mistakes.

Get your flows down. When you find out your sim partner, meet frequently and chair fly the profiles.

Not being able to keep up with the pace of operations and falling behind as the tasks start to add up. Sometimes it is because people don't know their flows well. Sometimes it is because they are weak on IFR knowledge. Other times it is because just naturally they cannot keep up with Part 121 flying.

Wondering if ETHOS is internet base or can courses be accomplished without?

You only need Wifi to sync your progress.

Study habits...or lack of them. You will live, eat, sleep, shower, *******, memory items, required callouts, Ops Specs, systems, and FARs.

Did I mention study habits?
