Skywest sim question: How many hours in the CRJ sim for initial training? I think it is 5 sessions of 4 hours ... so a total of 20 hours, and then another 4 hours or so for 700/900 differences. Is that correct? Thanks in advance.

All the FTD was done in the sim too. It was a few years ago but it was over 40 hours in the sim before your checkride

What does that mean...all the FTD. Doesnt FTD stand for flight trsining device?

Sorry ... I know what you mean now...The FTD is the the mock up where you practice your flows and get an idea where everything is. When I think of an FTD I think of the po-dunk simulators in flight schools wth no motion.

FTD is in the sim, but the motion is supposed to be off. Normally the first 4 sessions.

There was a Skywest pilot (AF deployed) by the name of C.K. who appeared in this months AOPA. He's in Iraq teaching ground school on the side. Anyone know this guy?

40 hours in the sim for the initial training (the 200), then extra hours for the 700/900 differences training.

So 20 hours FTD, 20 hours full motion, and then differences training 4 hours? Is that about right?

Okay... so no one knows him. He's a royal DB. Only reason I asked. Looks like he got his 15 minutes in AOPA teaching some old lifer in the USAF.

usually 40 hours in the sim w/motion on. Not sue how many FTD hours though.

40 Hours in a motion sim...the pass rate must be excellent....I think most would be bored to death after about 24 hours or 6 sessions.
