The P210 was a whole new ballgame. Pressurization and turbocharging meant flying in the flight levels—albeit, the lowest, most juniorlike flight levels. The binder is titled “Cessna Flight Crew Manual.” I got this official-sounding tome during a course in Wichita, Kansas. I was learning how to manage that big Continental, especially in descent, and what a turbine inlet temperature gauge was all about. Outflow valves and upper-deck pressure were discussed at length to my constant delight and intermittent consternation. This was the first time I had sat with other aviators while learning a new airplane. Since then, I’ve always loved school. Before that, I had always hated school of any type.
