@blacklabelbraai don't be afraid of hexzed's schedule. It is a really good one and you'll get used to it.
If you prefer a slightly easier approach, try my schedule. Here you only have to deal with 10 different airlines and some GA traffic. 1200h should be a pleasant entry point. Basically, I've created the schedule for myself to get used to the game, without being over- or underchallenged in the early stages.
Maybe my little reference card will help, too.
More detailed is rameus' PDF, as a much more usable manual than the original one.
