Flying the Citation (KING Classic)
good but expected more
I am about to do my initial training on a citation 2 and I was expecting more out of the course, will definitely recommend this course for CRM and brand new copilots, but if like me you expected to see something else like aircraft systems maybe even tips or so you might get disappointed .
Still is a great refresher on CRM procedures

Dated But Good
A little bit of a dated cockpit and procedures, but a good introduction to jet flying and CRM nonetheless.

Great Blast from the Past
It's fun to watch how things were done before EECs and "magenta line" flying.  Temperatures in Fahrenheit, TCAs, crossing runways without having to be told to....oh the good old times!

Great insight to CRM
About to head out to training for the Citation 500 SIC training. This was a great video to showcase how CRM and Jet procedures are conducted. I feel like I have walked away from this course knowing a bit better how the procedures and cockpit communication will flow in training and in the real world.

Some Day!..
The Flying the Citation Course was included with my Commercial Ground School Kit. It made me really excited about my future as a pilot seeing how the cockpit works. Interesting video!
