I'm actually rather enjoying the first episode. I used to find it quite outrageous that people with this little experience were being allowed to perform this job, but nowadays I realize there isn't really any reason not to. Primary flight training can be conducted on any aeroplane, as long as you've the cash for it. I've been training people just out of school for decades and I am finding it very amusing to watch the trainees repeating the exact same mistakes made by everyone who has learned to fly int he last century. I can see that as the failures are identical and have nothing to do with type, so are the successes. These young fellows will probably make perfectly decent pilots someday.
My favourite bit so far is the salty old sim instructor: "don't sit there shaking your head. The plane didn't miss the centreline. You put it there." "don't tell me you were looking at the far end of the runway, because I know for a fact you were not!"
How many times have I heard the exact thing coming out of my mouth.
