Flying a Desk

img_4209I am in flight ground school all week.  Pilots sometimes call this “flying a desk”.  It is detailed, exhaustive, and long.  I have class from 8 to 5 then I have about 3 hours of homework and studying in the evenings.  However, the material is interesting and it is all very useful.  Below are the various topics I am studying. – Noel
