I heard the academy is pretty challenging. With this said, is there anything that I can begin studying or reading that would prepare me for the stuff I will be learning at the academy. I currently have the infamous "green book" and even though this book gives a lot information regarding what to expect from the FAA and ATC positions, it does not give any information regarding information that can be studied beforehand. From what I hear it may be waiting a while until to hear back from the FAA so in the mean time I might as well begin studying. Can anyone refer any books or websites with info?

Thanks! :tap:

if you are off the street I have been told by several people who went to the 4 week general aviation course that you should study the FAR/AIM. You can find it on amazon.

The most current version of the 7110.65 is S not R.

My suggestion to get ahead is study airplane types from pictures etc.

Also the 3 letter ID for aircraft operators will help.

Also the airplane type that shows on the radar screen will help.

To find all that information, go to the Forum "Useful ATC Information" and look for FAA publications...it has the .65, contractions, location identifiers, and a few others in there to look at.

You may link to other websites on here, that is no problem at all. I did not see where you included any links in your previous post. If you need any help, let me know.

I have most of the useful FAA publications under the "Useful ATC Information" thread, to include the .65S
