GROUND SCHOOL

Recent editorial on the Aerometal DC-3 ground school operations:

Well known Douglas DC-3 specialist Aerometal International, based in Oregon State USA have recently announced a series of technical training ground school dates this summer. Paul Bazeley of Aerometal reported that the courses will be open to all and will focus on all the aspects of operating the Douglas DC-3 and C-47 as a flight crew member. The courses will be presented using period military and airline training manuals and study materials. The course will be held in Aerometal’s purpose built ground school facility within their 32,000sq ft DC-3 hangar. Students will have access to up to three different airworthy examples of the aircraft during the course dates. The ground school syllabus will be tailored to satisfy the requirements of the FAA Second In Command type rating (SIC) under 14 CFR part 61.55. The Aerometal crew have extensive experience in offering ground and flight training in the DC-3 and have been providing a reliable and high quality training option to individuals for the last 4 years. Paul Bazeley reports that these new course’s, while being a legitimate ground school option for certificated air crews, will also be aimed at the historian or enthusiast who wishes to gain real world experience of operating these magnificent aircraft.

Aerometal aims to host a series of ground school dates later in the year which will have a purely historical focus. These courses will train purely from the military manuals for the C-47 and Dakota aircraft and will focus on providing an authentic World War II era training experience.

Attendees of both course’s will receive detailed classroom instruction on aircraft systems, operating and emergency procedures, weight and balance, loading and use of flight deck check lists. Students will have access to a range of hands on training aids that include engines, propellers and fuel, hydraulic, and electrical system components. Students will participate in aircraft “walk around’s” and enjoy multiple opportunities to accomplish supervised flight deck check list drills and landing gear retraction exercises in an Aerometal DC-3 Flight training device.

Aerometal International’s team of ground and flight instructors can provide log book endorsements and records of training as needed.

We will be holding regular events each year. Please inquire with Aerometal International at 503 678 2266 or email them at training@flyaerometal.com. The Aerometal team can aid with the booking of accommodation or transportation for those needing it. Also ask about the Pacific Northwest aviation history package and turn your trip into a truly unique aviation history weekend with visits to three of the most significant aviation museums in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Aerometal International also offers a full range of DC-3 flight training or air experience.
