The highlight of the first day was applying what we'd learned about systems on this training simulator. Our instructor Wayne placed us in the simulator as it might be in "North Platte, Nebraska" -- i.e., cold and dark. Our job was to take all of the plane's systems from a cold start to the engines running, ready to taxi. And yes, I did get to flip pretty much every switch, including the "Fasten Seat Belt" sign.
