Week 6 and 7

Hi All,

No pole-strikes, no hidden sandwiches, and no crashes happened the last two weeks. Only...funny socks...

Question: What happens when you have to stand up wayyyyy to early and you don't turn the light one???? Any guess??

pascal socks


The only two 'exciting' things that happended during the last 14 days:

* We were again introduced to a new course, and this time it was 'flight planning'.

*The official introduction of the B737 NG. Me and a couple of other prom students were asked to help a bit at the reception or at the gate, and one of my prom buddies took the opportunity to shoot a couple pictures...
Too bad but we couldn't go inside at the moment but our time we'll come :-)

 See ya all next time,

B737 NG

do 17/01/08 - De Sabena Flight Academy heeft een nieuwe vluchtsimulator in gebruik genomen. Er was grote behoefte aan een bijkomend toestel want het aantal leerling-piloten zit in de lift.
Astronaut Frank Dewinne mocht als eerste de nieuwe simulator uitproberen.

De nieuwe simulator is geschikt voor de opleiding voor alle types Boeing 737.

Sabena Flight Academy heeft nu in totaal zes vluchtsimulatoren in België: drie voor Boeing, twee voor Airbus en een voor Avro.

De nieuwe simulator, inclusief de omkadering zoals elektriciteit, airco en aanpassingen aan het gebouw, kostte Sabena Flight Academy 10 miljoen euro.

Week 5

Hi people,

 The only highlights of last week were our first course of BFC (Basic Flying course) and the first course of performance.

Our first BFC session was given by Xavier Jensen, and the keyword of that day was "CENTRE POINT"!!! We only worked with the yoke, throttle, trim and pedals and for the instruments with the ADI and the RPM indicator. Level flight, climb, descent, bank, etc...

Our instructor for Performance is Tom Poelman. Damn that guy is funny! Jokes and jokes + good teaching skills... That's the way to fly :-)

For the rest, nothing very exciting happened. Exept maybe that the second pole is also gone...
2 poles gone, 1 to go ... Who will hit the last one? Who will win the 1.000.000€???
"The Three Gate Poles"...to be continued!!!

For not SFA-people: Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a gate...an entry gate. And next to that gate there were three poles. One day one of the Three Poles was hit by a Maltese guy of my prom. The two other poles stayed lonely behind. A couple of weeks later the people of that land far, far away saw that there was only one pole left. Till today nobody knows what is happend to the second pole. Some people say he missed the first pole so much that he took off. Others say that he has to search the fields for ever, tilll he find his pole-mate back. And the last pole is doomed to stay there whole its life, alone, without company and without his dudes....Till somebody hit him.

The End

C u all next week...

Pis Man

My mum was cleaning out one of the shelves and guess what she found, old postcards from Sabena. One of the cards is "Manneke Pis" in a sabena uniform. The back of the card says " Verkocht tegen 5 frank ten voordelen van de ziekenkas van de personeelsvereniging van Sabena (A.P.S)
Vendu 5 frank au profit de la Caisse des Malades de l'Association de personnel de la Sabena (A.P.S)"

There were other cards but I didn't had time to scan them...

Hi All,

The last week was a very short week. We had only course on Thursday and Friday. Friday was a very interesting day, we had our first briefing of BFC, Basic Flying Course.
First there was the 'normal' introduction briefing, where Jean De Clercq explained all the 'Goals':

* Develop professional attitude
* Understand basic tasks and apply
* Teaching/learning process
* Link between theory and practice
* PPH (Personal Pilot Handbook)

After a short break we had the Technical briefing and a short introduction what we will have to do in our first session.

The sessions are in groups and there are 4 groups of 4 people. I'm in group 1


See ya all next week
