Howdy folks!

For training flights these days can I just grab whatever planes have training flights assigned and do their routes?
I have 1000~ hours on FSA so I am eager to get back in the captain's seat.

I gave you the full rating on the DC-3
Basically get yourself to an airport where the training routes fly from and any aircraft available you can use.

Thanks! I did my training flights for the DC-3 and DC-6 (need rating on that one now), just finished my third flight today and I believe it's only 2 required if I had an expired rating? :)

I want to do BAE-146 next. I just put in a request on the training forum to have one of the planes moved to a training start point for me.

Hi Billy Although you may have flown the type previously on the FSA system, our rules are 4 flights for a new type rating on our VA. Its only to be fair to others.
I've moved a 146 to Exeter for your training flights as they all originate from there.

Thanks! I'll try to get certified in that soon :)
So I guess I have one more DC-6 trainer to do as well if I've only done 3 flights?
