Anybody have any material to study aircraft types?

I downloaded the 7360.1, but my eyes hurt just looking at that mess.

There are a lot if flashcard apps, and a lot if them have a ton of ATC study stuff that people have made. That's what I used at the academy at least as an OTS.

Took me from zero knowledge to just calling everyone November.

Any suggestions for OTS before attending the academy? I am a pure OTS and know nothing, any suggestions?

Do you need to memorize aircraft specifics? Such as climb/decent rate ?
I went on quizlets and its just aircraft type then a picture

You’ll need to know a general knowledge of that (i.e., C172 vs C750, PA32 vs P46T, etc). Basically that a single piston aircraft would climb, cruise, and descend slower than a twin turbojet.

What my professor did for my aircraft rec class was show us 3 or 4 different pictures of the same aircraft and point out the unique parts of it that make it recognizable (landing gear, windows, exit doors, etc) and then on the tests he’d give us a completely different picture (not one that was originally shown) so we really had to know what to look for instead of just memorizing a picture. It was really effective. I’d recommend trying to do something similar to study.

Unless it's changed drastically over the years there's only like one or two aircraft rec questions on the basics exam and none in the academics after basics.
