Few of the best item to start flying with !

#1 Post by yak8 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 6:23 pm

Here are some items i wish i had from the start:

1)Timex Ironman triathlon
http://www.amazon.ca/Timex-T5K402GP-Tri ... +triathlon
Dual zone,timer,alarm, can stand it on my wrist for 17 hrs, nice idigloo and cheap (67 at my door)

2)MEC sunglasses
http://images.mec.ca/fluid/customers/c8 ... 0x1000.jpg
Excellent protection, lightweight, can wear it with an head set for long, can still read down the dash and divide the minimums by at least twice ( joke joke ) and cheap....

3) Pen : Paper mate flexgrip ultra
They are on every office and write ALL the time !

4) Boots : Timberland flume.
http://www.amazon.com/Timberland-18128- ... B001EWFFI0
Light, warm enought for outside and cool enought for the time in the cockpit.Very confy and the grip (not perfect) is good compare to what i had. Waterproff 2 or 3 out of five ( be carefull and treat them with some waterproofing). DON'T RING at airport security !

5) Gloves : the black leather one from the military. ( not the one with the removable inside )
They last for ever, warm enought for the outside and you ll be able to fly that first leg of that winter morning...

6) THE thermos !
I had way more thermos than girlfriend i presented to my mum ( probably unralated )
Here the one:http://www.thermos.com/products/vacuum- ... ottle.aspx
The coffee stays hot till thenext fuel stop ! Garanted. The FA get bored, no more call for constant refill !
Safety latch, fit in most cup holder and the cap being tranparent, you won't loose the field anymore because of that last sip just before the minimum.Cool isn't it? At Walmart,so again : cheap !

7) Head set :HMEC 25 KA
Heare again, those 17 hours willl go good.

8)Last, 2 books : Fly the wing and the pilot technical interview
ultra cheap on amazon.

Buy these with your eyes closed. You ll save money and time ,get straight the confortable stuff !

Cheers !
