Getting the Nod
Almost two months have passed since I got the PC (pilot in command) talk. In the meantime, I have spent hours preparing; answering personal questions about the importance of being a PC and studying to ensure I could pass the test. My plan was to get to a point where I would be ready for the job about half way through the deployment. It seems things have come together as planned.
While I was troubleshooting the our personal Internet system one night last week, the pilot who talked to me last month about my progress paid me a visit. Amid the network cables and new RJ45 connectors, he sat down and began to talk.
"Just wanted to let you know that there was another PC meeting and your name came up again ... blah blah blah."
I was not paying close attention to his words because people were yelling to me as I labeled network cables and tried to make sense of the system layout. I heard him talking, but my attention was focused elsewhere. Then it struck me, he just said I would be next to train for becoming a PC. I stopped what I was doing and had to ask him, "Say again?"
"Its been decided you will train for pilot in command, starting tomorrow. You're ready."
All I could think about from then on was my upcoming performance. How much pressure would the instructor pilots impart on me while in the cockpit? How long would the interrogations last? What will the training involve?
