What's your day job?

Recommended Posts

Currently, I am a Captain Instructor Pilot and FAA Examiner for a major jet manufacturer.

 

I am rated on the B747-400, B747-8, B787, B757, B767, A320, and SD3 aircraft.

 

When not doing that, since I am a flight training consultant, I am an equity and index option trader for my self direct accounts.

 

More recently, within the last year I discovered how accurate these simulations of commercial airliners are, like the PMDG 777 and 747-4 V3 and iFly 747-400. So, as I continue to age (62, ugh), I want to get involved with the VATSIM network and have some fun...

I am in the U.S. Army. I used to fly OH-58D's but now fly a few variants of the C-12 (King Air 200).

Retired - worked as a surgeon (coloproctology) and flightsimming was my escape path from the stresses of that job for an hour or two after a bad day. Now that I've retired it's my escape path from the stresses induced by my wife!😉

Lead Programmer and IT Manager for a UK National Logistics Company. Had an Epiphany moment, threw it all in and went Long-Distance Trucking around Europe.

Now retired but .... every time that I opened my curtains - it was a different view! :biggrin:

At present my day job is more of a night job. i'm currently an airline Captain with a certain UK airline. Lots of very late (or should that be early ) finishes.

 

I commute to work from the World's most beautiful Island. Well, when it's not raining it is anyway!

 

Just got my Single Engine Rating back too. the 737ng is a bit boring....

Mostly between Sim rigs right now. Just a joystick to play on. 

Too busy to continue design work for the next few months then I'll get back on it.

 

50 and still a big kid.

B737NG Pilot. Ex Q400, BAe146, ATP and Flying Instructor in the dim and distant past! Now renewed my SEP to fly a friend's  C182RG however, he crashed recently but only injured his ego fortunately.
