  3. Wrote the CCH. It was 40 questions, about 25 based on regulations, the other 15 pertained to sectionals and airspace. Hope this helps others.
  4. I appreciate the responses, thank you gentlemen. I'll post an update following the test for other inquiring minds.
  5. Has anyone written the CCH Knowledge test? It is 40 questions, and I am curious if it is the same question base as the CRH exam (which I wrote just before the changes in process). Very last minute trip to write it so just hoping to prepare quickly. Thanks!
  6. Just wondering if anyone has a link about the agreement or maybe some info regarding what the agreement entails.
  7. Finished my training 5 years ago. Got a job within a couple months like 10 of the 12 or so guys in my class. Today two are flying. Four got some stick time, but only 2 made it a career. If I had not been successful I wouldn't be posting. I am approaching 1000 hours and love my job. But I know I am part of the very small minority that makes it. Unfortunately I have met 40ish (probably more but don't want to over-estimate) industry-employed 100hr grads. Of those, four will be lucky to get into the seat (most already quit). I agree with the 10-20% flying success rate. To prospective flight school students: - You will find a job (non-flying) if you put in the time, effort, & money. - You will get paid pennies for busting your hump for 2-5 yrs. - You will have to try to remain positive but will end up bitter. - If you never complain to anyone about anything, go every extra inch possible, know when and how to kiss a$$ imperceptibly, and clean everything in sight you may get a shot at stirring the stick but won't remember 50% of what you learned in flight school. This industry is about people. Develop excellent working relationships with clients, pilots, engineers,and management and you may one day get a shot. (especially if 90% of your grad class already quit). Hope this help a few.
  8. Great article! Thanks for posting.
