Yes, Bill, that was my understanding. In my class, all graduates received a standard ticket. You were an exception as always :)

I did part of my civilian rating at OPF circa 1968, and they had some of the original Links with the vacuum-cleaner power and the cute little wings. Pretty basic simulation: the turn rate was simply proportional to the rudder position <g>.




Well....if you could have shared that with some of us in '71, it woulda saved us a lot of grief (hands on hip tapping foot!)
Still remember ADF approaches and hold in that damned thing.

I though the ADFs were easy, the aural-null ones were harder (and the LFRs).

I wasn't an exception, I was in the Army. :-)

On the serious side, I put in a lot of effort into the instrument portion of the training. I found out I could go over to Hanchey and get all the extra sim time I wanted as long as no one else was scheduled. The guys running the sims didn't care, it just gave them something to do. They could screw me around with different scenarios which they couldn't do under normal training classes. I worked out a lot of short cuts in the sim that I used later.

I liked ADF approaches. That push'n the head and pull'n the tail thingy just made sense. I always said if I was down to my last drop of gas and the field was below minimum I'd take a dual ADF approach with the second beacon at the field. KFSI had one of those back in the day that took the aircraft between the artillery ranges.

Guess what liked best about teaching them was to have the student tune in the station Waylon Jennings was on and I could listen while the student worked <g>.

Yep, Burnside-Ott. I was stationed at WPAFB, and had a CFII at the local Piper dealer who got me through most of it...but we had scheduling problems and progress was slow. I decided to do a concentrated wrapup at BATC while home in Miami for Christmas, and they whipped me right through.

Mr. Burnside gave me the flight check in less than 30 minutes...;-)
