My name is Jared Dellinger and I am excited to say I am scheduled to start training with ATP on the 14th of August at the Chicago location. I started flying when I returned from the Peace Corps in 2009, finally receiving my PPL in 2013 after a break for graduate school. I have about 110 hrs TT.
I had a couple questions I was hoping people could chime in on as I prep. I’m currently going through all of the course materials, books, checklist items, etc. and I was wondering what other equipment would be recommended prior to day 1 that might not be on the list provided? When I went into the Peace Corps we received a huge checklist of things to bring only to arrive in country and realize there were a few things that would have been really useful had we known in advance.
I already have most of the items suggested (e.g. flight bag, headset, view limiting glasses) with the exception of a kneeboard that I can use with my ipad. So my next question is is there a specific kneeboard that works well for the training that might be recommended?
Thank you for any feedback. I also wanted to say thank you to all of the mentors who take the time to respond to questions on this forum. I’ve been checking questions and responses everyday and the information I’ve seen on here has been incredibly helpful in confirming my decision to enroll.
