So I got a job



Hey all, I finally got a job. The airline industry is in the gutter, but I found a nice little airline thats based in Denver. I interviewed a week or two ago, and I start ground school on Monday (Aug 4)

Ground school is 6 days a week for 6 weeks. After that I'm off to Atlanta, GA for simulator training for a couple weeks, and then a few days of flight training in the airplane back in Denver. After that I should be a real airline pilot.

The company is called Great Lakes Airlines. They have a couple of different airplanes (all of which are small commuters)

The airplane I have been assigned to is this one:



Its a 30 seater turbo-prop (jet engine turning a propeller)
It can go about 360 MPH and climb to 32,000 feet. Its gonna be sweet.


I wish my lawn was Emo, and cut itself

Congrats! Good that things worked out the way you wanted. What day out of the week are you going to have off, Sunday? I'm out in Cali atm but when I get back into town I will have to take you out for a drink, would want you to be the only non-alcoholic pilot in the industry... lol.

Right on. Climb the ladder!
