    Cool G-IV Type Rating


    I just passed my Gulfstream G-IV type rating checkride at CAE DFW. I will say the staff and instructors at CAE are very pleasant and professional. The sim needs some MX. It was one of more challenging type rating courses to get through. I got the flu after sim 1 and took a few days off to recover. I returned to sim training after I wasnít contagious but still not feeling so good. My sim partner who didnít have a lot of experience was behind the power curve. Many times I felt like I was operating the sim single pilot. But Iím glad itís over. New type rating in my pocket. I get to go home tomorrow to my family and get some house projects done. Kudos to CAE for their professionalism. Huge word of gratitude to my employer for their support. Especially when I was sick with the flu. Other than the sim at CAE needing some TLC I have one more complaint.....

    I didnít learn the secret Gulfstream handshake....

    Congrats. Decent type to have. Been about 10 years since I've been to CAE but they had a good 900 sim back in the day.


    Oh the secret shake isn't really a handshake. It's more just a raised middle finger.
