DC-3 Type Rating - The Whole Thing
This is an aggregated post with links to all of the show episodes that deal with the DC-3 type rating course that I attended 22-25 May 2008 with Dan Gryder in Griffin, Georgia in the Herpa DC-3.
I’ve put all of the material here so that I can offer a single URL from which you can jump to any of the various episodes. If you wish to provide this information to anyone who might me interested in the story, his or her own type rating, or any other purpose, simply invite them to visit this page’s URL:
Note that all of the links are to blog posts. Several posts are labeled as audio episodes, which means that there’s a link to the audio of the podcast episode just below the first picture in the post. Click on the link or launch the automatic player in order to hear the audio.
You can also subscribe to Airspeed through iTunes or any other podcatcher and listen at your leisure. It’s all free!
Here are the episodes and posts . . .
Initial Interview with Dan (Audio Episode) - An interview with Dan for the show from January, before I had decided to take the type rating course. And, for that matter, before I had even decided to go for the multi-engine rating.
DC-3 Type Rating – Arrival (Audio Episode) – Self-explanatory.
DC-3 Type Rating – Day 1 (Audio Episode) – Self-explanatory.
DC-3 Type Rating – Day 2 (Blog Post)
DC-3 Type Rating Complete (Blog Post) – An announcement in blog form to let those who were following along know that I got ‘er done.
DC-3 Type Rating Complete (Audio Episode) – An audio episode that updates podcast listeners and tells them that I completed the rating. I quit posting audio episodes after the first two days because it was causing me to miss too much sleep and the primary point, after all, was to competently fly the airplane. Discretion is the better part of valor, after all.
Summary Episode – The whole enchilada, including original music.
