I just got back from 4 days away in Toulouse at the ATR training center. The trip was to complete an OPC, which stands for Operator Proficiency Check (I think). We do OPC's twice a year and LPC's twice a year, and each takes 2 days in the simulator to do.
The weekend went really well. I flew with a new FO I hadn't met before, and he was very good at his job. The training portion of the simulator was VERY informative and useful, I really enjoyed that part.
There were no real hassles this weekend apart from waking up on Monday to a text message from KLM saying that our flight home had been cancelled...uh oh!! There was very thick fog in Amsterdam, which is where we were connecting through, and lots of airlines had cancellations. Luckily we got put onto a Lufthansa flight via Munich, and actually got home earlier than planned. SO I got to see my boys before they went to bed, which was nice.
I have another week off now before I get back to flying. February is going to be quite busy, but thats good, I've had it pretty easy lately!
