  1. What also helps is that the CG is below the aircraft and it acts as a pendulum keeping the fuselage on the bottom side of the airplane.
  2. I have a really good contract where I am teaching at now, which is fairly close to Horizon first year pay. I am 23 years old with close to 200 given and I have to count all my lucky stars to be in the position I am in now. Now if only I can get my multi and some trips with the plane then I'll be closer to where I would like to be now.
  3. Haven't applied just yet. I am still building up the hours. Right now my times are 500/0 and I hope to be at around 1000 by the end of July. Then I'll throw my hat into the ring.
  4. It's good they had an autopilot and didn't end up in a large bath.
  5. It's part of the group that looks like it has Barbara Bush on the tail.
  6. Yeah reseting the time will be nice! I'll just have to remember to change the expiration date on all my students log books when I sign them!
  7. Friday I finally got my CFII!Wasn't that bad of an add on since I already have my CFI. There really isn't much to do in the oral besides the basics of instruments and the common errors of first time instrument students. The flight was just as easy as well because the majority of my free time flying is done IFR.Then today I got to talk to an airline that I thought I would never be able to fly for. We'll see how that goes in the next few months!
  8. It might have been a positioning flight where they didn't have a number already in the system. I've been on some positioning flights though and dispatch gave them a 'normal' type number with no other phonetics in it.
  9. So you are saying a merit based system imposed by the company is much more safe?
  10. Wow that was the most insane post I've read here in a long time. So you are saying that the pilots don't care if they live at the end of the work day?I hope the pilots are the most highly paid! They have gone through the most training and education. There are very few pilot's now that have less then bachelor degrees in some sort of field. Not too many people in the world are qualified enough to operate something at near the speed of sound, in altitudes that are prohibitive to many life forms, and know more about physics, meterology and advanced math. When you carry nearly 500 people a day safely under these conditions then you can talk.Or do you already do this for Virgin America, Skybus, or JetBlue?
  11. Thanks Kevin. People don't understand the protection of a union is really needed in our type of profession.
  12. Cool it will give me something to do at work ;)
  13. I wonder if they are going to air this on the American Discovery channel?
  14. Fly United or American because Jetblue doesn't have a union.
