SIMCOM Orlando initial question

Asked by: 620 views , , , , ,

Hey guys, so finally just got my commercial single and multi instrument add-on and my company will be sending to SIMCOM pretty soon for training for a Cessna 414 and 340. I'm excited for this, but also a little nervous, but I was just curious of what I should know before going into this. Also what my time there will mostly consist of as far classroom studies and even a little bit of the sims. I already know a lot of it will be obviousl emergency procedures, single engine ops as well instrument flying. Some insight would be much appreciated.

    I just finished my recurrent SP exemption in the Ultra at SIMCOM Orlando and have been there several times. They should have sent you a link for the training/pre-study materials once your training dates are confirmed. This will include a lot of material on systems, limitations and memory items. The memory items obviously need to be memorized prior to showing up and you should have a good handle on the limitations. Class sessions will be spent going through the systems, limitations, performance and W&B.In the SIM you will get to practice the emergency items and spend lots of time flying approaches.
    The prestudy materials will also include things on the special emphasis areas, weather, etc.The more you study in advance, the more you will get out of the training session as there is a lot of material covered in a relatively very short time.
