Congrats! Which company are you with?
Horror of horrors, he paid for his own training. Are you going to shun him before you learn that he is flying his own plane?
You trade in the King Air? You are not going to want to take the Citation into Gaston's.
Trade it in? Seems like he just got it! Or maybe he's keeping both.
Super, Dave. Great work.
Wasn't planning on it.
Right after I posted that I saw the B25 rating on his profile, and kinda put two and two together, collecting ratings is cool, heck if I had the money I'd have so many type ratings I'd need a second card
Nothing wrong with buying a type, it's when you work for free, or try to undercut pro pilots, that's when you'll see me shunnnnnnn someone.
Dave isn't collecting type ratings. He uses his ratings for personal flying.
Congrats! Hope to have my ATP and CRJ type in 12 more days!
Nice Job! Now to sound like a total noob.. What is RVSM?
Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums .
From FL 290 up through FL410 the altitudes separate by 1000' versus the old 2000'.
Thanks.. So is that a specific rating?
No, but to use the airspace the pilot needs specific training, and the aircraft has to be certified to use it.
Sorry folks, I was in the airport waiting to fly home when I posted.
CE-500 allows me to fly several different Citation jets. ATP rating I take it y'all understand and RVSM was explained above.
It was a lot of work. Great oral, but I messed up one approach on the flight test and had to redo it. Very challenging to fly a new jet to ATP standards, but got it done. With the ATP it added some studying and the DPE addresses any areas where you missed a question on the written. RVSM is a course I must take and pass to operate as Rotor&Wing said. Plane has to have an LOA and operator has to be qualified.
Just got home and it's late, so, I'll catch up later
