I also have a friend doing the level one internship and it pains me to hear him talk about all the time he is spending in the sims, shooting approaches and such, while I putt around in a 150. I think that it is a great ooportunity.
I agree..thats why I decided to build time before getting any sort of type rating or internship, but it still makes ya jealous when I hear how much fun it is to fly the sims. But at least I can spin the 150, try doing that in a sim.
Fly/instructing is probably more benificial than the internship, but I would like to get the best of both worlds. Fly/instruct throughout the Summer & Fall and than Intern for the 90 days around the time the Winter up here in Ohio starts. I was just curious to see was guy currently doing the internship thought of it.
