Hi all, another question about grading I'm afraid. I have done a search on the subject and have found: http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=22935/highlight=grading.html http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=9279/highlight=grading.html Unfortunately, my question is slightly different so any advice that can be given would be appreciated. My position is that I have a place at RMAS for January and a place on a grading course in the autumn. I do not however have any flying experience, or knowledge for that matter, whatsoever! Is it worth getting some beforehand or is it best to arrive as a completely blank page? I notice from one of the above threads that it may be recommended to undertake a gliding course - is this the case? As I said beforehand, my knowledge is non-existent so is it recommended to learn about the instruments and theory of flight beforehand or is this taught on the course!? Additionally, is there anything else that would be beneficial in practising, e.g. maths exercises? Is there anything beyond s/t/d calcs that I should know about or practice? Thank you all in advance and although the questions may seem a tad silly and low-level, they are not waahs!
