A350 Training

 Officially Underway! 

I am heading to Atlanta today, to take my test tomorrow! However, I took the old fashioned way of preparation and studied every day... sometimes at the lake, everyday on the elliptical, and often in a bath tub. I even made flash cards. There was lots of information to learn; however, I have proven during my doctoral research that a higher level understanding versus memorizing to pass a test will improve overall safety. In the long run, learning will carry to the airplane and expand to those novel situations that rote memorization will not. 

Not only was I studying, but we were in the midst of a serious and ongoing heart problem with my husband. A week ago they ablated multiple points, isolated chambers and all was successful. Yesterday we had his follow up appointment, and he's doing great!  So then we went to the golf course and he had the best game all year (I did too), and today I travel. 

More Airbus info to come...

From what I have learned so far is that the A350 is very smart, and the differences with the A330 are all improvements in design that make sense logical sense. 

If you're learning the A350... and have questions please send them my way. I'll do my best to find the answers. Until then, I'll be updating my blog on a more regular basis as I take this journey into the next type rating. 


Enjoy the Journey!
