    Re: Aircraft Recognition

    So, I took Rossta's advice on the aircraft you ought to know for enroute (I'm terminal), and since I have nothing to do, I started making a PDF with short info on all planes. I only had time to do the single engine piston. If I have time, I'll do the others. The info is all taken from wikipedia so it may not be accurate. This was something I did for myself and thought to share it. Sorry i'ts not much!

    Re: Aircraft Recognition

    Looks great. Give me a few days and I'll try to send you the pertinent information that they want you to know, and you can replace the Wikipedia stuff on there with that, if you'd like.

    Did the pictures come from the Wikipedia pages you quoted in the back?

    Thanks!, I'm supposed to cover aircraft recognition tomorrow so let me see what they'll give me and I'll put that in there as well. Your extra info is more than welcome.

    The pictures did come from Wikipedia as well. BTW the PDF is also available in Keynote and PPT, so if anyone wants it, PM me.

    For the Terminal labs and sims you will deal with

    Re: Aircraft Recognition

    Alright, I got to that part today (or yesterday), and here are the category I aircraft that will be on tests (or so I think). Note that there will be more on the tabletops and simulators. This new guide has fewer aircraft but has the descriptions from the book. It's also available in Keynote, PM me if ya want it.

    The power point is more fun since the pics appear before the description. So you can identify the aircraft and then click to see the name.

    Re: Aircraft Recognition

    I am an off the street hire recently certified, and the one thing I have learned working at a level 7 VFR tower is if you are unsure what type the aircraft is, you can always ask the pilot. Hopefully they know...

    As for at the academy, it's a test you'll have to pass. I don't get scolded for not knowing the difference between a GA Skylane and Skyhawk from the tower.

    knowing the performance of the types for en route is more important imo. If I need either a citation 500 or a hawker h25b to expedite their climb, I'm sure as hell not gonna ask the citation. Those shouldn't even be classified as jets.

    This is the only post I've seen that pertains specifically to Initial Tower Cab Training. Can anyone tell me if these are basically the only ones you need to know for this class? Seems like a relatively small list.

    The list I provided above is what you need to know. Add to that list the 767, the A310, and the DC-10.
