Below is a collection of material that I use in training. A lot of these are “chair flying” videos. The idea of chair flying is to rehearse routines, flows, procedures while we are sitting in a chair, at 0g, on the ground. The airplane is a terrible classroom – it’s noisy, expensive, you have an annoying instructor yapping to your right. We should be learning on the ground and practicing in the air. With that in mind – let’s learn some stuff on the ground.
