Where do you even begin? Start here. Read a systems chapter in the Guide first to get an overview, then do the heavy lifting and read the respective chapter in the FCOM. Sure, you might wanna start with Airplane General to get an idea of what the aircraft and flight deck looks like. But even that chapter becomes heavy, real quick. Electrics Almost everything on this aircraft is electrical, so it makes sense to start here and to understand this system first.

Where do you even begin? Start here. Read a systems chapter in the Guide first to get an overview, then do the heavy lifting and read the respective chapter in the FCOM. Sure, you might wanna start with Airplane General to get an idea of what the aircraft and flight deck looks like.
But even that chapter becomes heavy, real quick. Electrics Almost everything on this aircraft is electrical, so it makes sense to start here and to understand this system first. All those other manuals Perhaps you transferred to the within your current airline, or maybe both the airline and the aircraft is new to you. Heck, it could even be that the type of operation is new if you go from short haul to long haul.
Either way, there will probably be some operations manuals and route manuals to read too. Save those for last, but try to get started as soon as possible. You want to be in a good place before beginning the line training. Good luck! And one last word of advice: never assume that something works the same as your previous aircraft just because it looks the same, or is called the same.
Pilots transferring from the Airbus often do better because they assume everything is gonna be new, and therefore make sure to really learn the details. Did you study your current aircraft in a similar order? Or do you have a better way - comment below!
Got manuals. Will study. I recommend the following order: 1. Hydraulics Further building that foundation. Once you know the electrics and hydraulics you are in a pretty good position to better understand the other systems.
The hydraulic chapter is also a fairly light chapter which is easy to digest. Flight Controls This is a big chapter, so you might as well get started. The fly-by-wire concept is also quite central to understanding the so pay attention. Warning Systems. Take your time to understand the different message types. It will help you further down the line. All the other systems. Flight Management and Navigation Oh yeah, this one is heavy and therefore worth mentioning.
Reading about how to use a computer is probably the worst possible way to learn it. You may have noticed I also have another app, FMC. Instead of looking things up in chapters, you can see descriptions of every detail in the CDU by tapping on them. It might be helpful if you're new to the Boeing style FMCs. Content updates in What happened in July ? Android is coming! The Guide app is a work in progress. It already contains some pages, and photos and illustrations but I'm adding new stuff every week.
Simply tap the cloud icon in the app menu to download the latest content update. The About page pilot icon in the app menu has a complete list of the update history, but another great way to get notified of updates is to follow my Instagram account guide - I usually publish an Instagram story whenever I've added new content to the app.
You'll see a collection of screenshots of those Stories in this blog post. Interviewed by mega. Back in July I was interviewed by mega. You can find it here , and I think it's worth a visit.
He has been doing loads of interesting interviews with pilots from all around the world. What a great resource for aspiring pilots, but also others who are curious about what it's like to fly for a living. Here's his interview with me: 1 Tell us what made you want to become a pilot?
The dream was always there since young age. I started paragliding when I was 15, which was all I could afford and barely that. At age 17 I was incredibly fortunate to be accepted into a flight school that was government sponsored.
My first lesson there was the first time I ever sat in an aircraft! That flight school has since closed its doors, but the training was solid. It asked a lot from the students, we spent many evenings and weekends on the school premises. Many of my closest friends today I met back there. Cessna , and for single engine. Cessna for multi engine. ATPL theory. Already back then it was heavy, and I've heard it hasn't exactly gotten easier these days.
Sounds like a cliche, but here it is: never give up. That's it. If you really wanna be a pilot and never give up, you're gonna be a pilot. Maybe you're gonna have to go fly single engine props in Ghana or Indonesia on the way.. Stay positive. Anytime I'm asked to take an empty airliner on a ferry flight.
It doesn't happen too often of course, but that feeling is great! No pax, no cabin crew, just me and the FO, like two buddies taking a million dollar machine for a spin : 7 What is your favourite destination to fly to? Love that RIIVR 3 arrival for its challenge and great views 8 What is the biggest misconception that people have about your job?
That it's kinda easy after all, just autopilot and chill, right? If you're flying short haul you're probably under constant stress to meet the schedule. If you're flying long haul you constantly battle short and long term fatigue. No matter what you fly you feel the weight of the responsibility. Piloting ain't easy. I wish I had learned proven study methods at early age. We just tell our kids "to study harder" but with very little instruction how.
There is a lot of resources out there on how to learn more efficiently.
