So now I have been through all of the course work, I am now starting the revision phase and exam preparation. The exams will take place over 2 days at Gatwick airport in London at the Gulag also known as the Caa. (Mind you the food isn't too bad)
My head is ready to explode but I am just looking at the calendar and crossing off the days until I can get my head back out of the books and into the cockpit and fly the darn plane.
On another note I have been taking the occasional break from study and have been watching a great aviation tv series called "Flying Wild Alaska" once again. Be careful its totally addictive and shows some quite unbelievable flying and landing in conditions most of us would be hiding under the blanket instead of getting behind the controls. I downloaded it through iTunes, one to keep an eye out for.
Right I've had my cup of coffee.... time to revise.

Its the 19th June. On 12th & 13th July I will have my final 3 theory exams. I am in Spain at the moment, on a family "Holiday" which basically means I am trying to squeeze in 6-8 hours of study if the joyous subjects such as Principles of Flight, (which is like studying degree level physics), Navigation and Flight Planning Mass and Balance.
I have had a week of doing Flight Planning this week and have nearly got the practice exam scores where I want to be. Each day I do a little Principles of Flight and then on Monday I will be going head first back into Navigation. I think I am on the right path with it, and am really looking forward to exam day.
For the moment its sitting here in Spain and hitting the books hard.
