Goin' slow on the ground

Ground school continues progressing slowly. I feel like we've made it through the most difficult part though. The first two weeks were made up of outlining the mechanics and various systems of the R-22. In this photo you see Frank our instruction (also the Chief Pilot at the Ogden center) showing the class the parts and operatoins of the swash plate. From here out I think it will get more exciting. We'll be getting into aerodynamics and so forth plus flight training is getting more exciting as the work in the simulator gets more realistic and less repetitive. Hopefully I'll be in the actual bird in about two weeks.
