Yup, it's Wednesday once again and in a few minutes I leave for my dance class. This is the big group... 18 people! That makes the class not only fun, but I can do some dances that don't work with my small Thursday class (10 people).
I've had a pretty busy week so far, with an important meeting on Monday and another one today.... not to forget my "duty" class last Sunday with 25 people. And this coming Sunday is another class... this time 40 people have signed up! uff These classes are on the weekend because the people taking part work during the week... and the reason for the classes has to do with their hobbies... FLYING!
Timbook2 asked what a "duty" class means.....let metry to explain. I work as an airfield inspector. Yep, I work for the German FAA (shhhh, don't tattle!). I have 24 airfields in my jurisdiction that I'm supposed to visit regularly, depending on weather, of course. These are all general aviation airfields, not the big kind like Frankfurt! phew...
Anyway, these small fields don't have air traffic controllers, but they do have "traffic advisors", people who sit in small towers or even customized VW buses, and give pilots info over the radio about other air traffic at the field and conditions.
The class I teach is a training class for these people. They learn from me all the regulations and anything else relevant. Being from the "authority" it is not usual to get applaus, but I do! LOL OK, some classes don't go so well... there are some times real pills out there who spoil things for everyone, but in general I can handle them pretty well.
Oooops, gotta get going! See ya later!
