I got together with myTransponder.com founder Rod Rakic to talk about accelerated flight training. Rod has done accelerated programs as a part of both his commercial and instrument training. I did my AMEL, ASES, and DC-3 (SIC) training in accelerated programs. And Rod and I are both graduates of the CAP National Emergency Services Academy’s Mission Aircrew School.
We talked about the benefits and drawbacks of accelerated and/or concentrated training and how best to take advantage of it.
