Hello everybody!

I understand that there are two SWA pilots that sell flash cards. I would like to know how to get intouch with them and if there is any preferance of one set of cards over the other.

I also heard that one SWA pilot made a book on SWA procedures, anyone know about it?

Thanks

Excellent Cards

I'll third that, I got these cards a couple months ago and they are awesome study material. I like the card "When is the Captain authorized to buy a round of drinks for the passengers?" Now that's my kind of airline....Yeaaaaaa!!!

PASS Cards

Hey guys,
I've been on the boards for a little while now but this is my first post. I interviewed Jan 22 and got the JM call on Friday as well.

For All Y'all (that's plural for ya'll) who may be starting class soon, I got the flyer for the PASS cards when I was at Higer Power last summer, and it mentioned something about group discounts for new hires. Any takers on us all getting together with a group order? I know I need to get a set of these things.

PS. Say, how do you guys get all those cool pictures next to your posts, anyway?

Sorry, if we told you we would have to kill you...

And that's against SWA policy...

It specifically says you can't kill fellow employees.

However I am interested in the group discount thing. Do you know what the costs are for solo vs gaggle?

Just Kidding

On the top of your page click on "user cp" (just below the jungle jet). Then click on "edit options." At the bottom of the next page is info about how to set your "AVATAR."

Good luck and welcome aboard.

See ya in DAL

Hmmmmm...tough question. When asking what the costs are for "solo or gaggle", is that for the study cards or for the round of drinks? If for both...then you're in solid at SWA. :D

I saw a set of the PASS cards and they looked pretty good. A couple of the guys from my base started class yesterday, so I'll try to get some feedback late next week of what they think of them after some systems.

pass737@lycos.com (480) 963-6399

Are these the same as the cards Mike recommended?
jpansmith@compuserve.com (480) 963-5005

The biggest thing a SWA FO recommended was to make sure whatever you end up with they are current.

I would definitely be interested in getting a set once we determine which ones are the best.

Maybe the 14 Feb class could throw their .02 cents in?

Hey guys and gals..

The cards you are speaking of are Johns cards..

JPansmith@Compuserve.com..
PASS737@Lycos.com...

(480)963-5005
(480)963-6399

You can contact John by any of the above means..In the past John has waved the shipping charges on group orders..Thats five bucks to each of you so on a large order it could add up to to a nice discount..

I have both sets. JP's cards are very good, traditional flash cards. Gives great info, very well organized, clean & simple.

The other cards
http://www.texasspa.org/RS.htm
are also good. Not as flashy looking but fills the bill nicely. What is good about this package is it comes with a checklist size 8 page of compressed info (very small print!!!) which is good for review. Has all the important data there & lots of nice to know info.

As to which one is better, hard to say. If I had to recommend one I'd probably go with JP's for the new hire. It has what you need to know in a format that is great for studying. the other cards are useful for when you get past the basics. Has everything JPs does + more but not as in as clean a format. Lots of extraneous info that might overwhelm a new guy. my .02

good luck

Just to really confuse things someone recommended this guy's cards:

GDuplissey@compuserve or B737CARDS@aol.com

Anyone seen these?

Thanks!

To all,

My mistake, it was Pansmith's & Duplisey's cards I was referenced, not the one I mentioned in my most. My sentiment is the same toward them both. My apologies for any confusion. I realized it after the name was posted on the last post & I went back & check my cards out. Again, my apologies.

Enough
Thought I'd bump this to the top

I wish I could "Rat-tail" all the poolies passing me by with my new "Rat-towel". Heaven knows it is whet enough.

Best of luck.

A lot of people of my class over a year ago had the PASS cards which does have everything and more that you will need to pass a checkride, which by the way is one of the easiest ones that I have ever had.

Having had previous 737 experience I opted not to buy the cards. I felt that I am lazy enough and if I did buy the cards that would be all I would study. I pictured myself being asked a question in an oral and saying, "I'm not quite sure of the answer but I can find it in my flash cards." Everything you need to know is in the FOM and FRM. I would suggest that you dont rely soley on the cards. For me the book works fine.

Good luck to you all. May the hiring this year explode.
