I think it was about as long for me before I made my first post. As you can see, I've been sooo prolific since.
I just didn't want to be another guy on here talking about stuff I still don't understand fully, sounding like a poseur. This industry scares me to my soul and attracts me like a moth at the same time. I'm a new PPL (may) about to get out of the Navy (CTI) and about to jump into the fracas (frasca?..hmm). I know it's a terrible industry, but like democracy, it seems like the worst, but for all the others.
I was about to say aw, ph..kit, but then this summer, a very kind soul escorted my CFI and I on a grand tour of Widget World in ATL. This included dispatch and a little sit in the 738 level-D. Looking around that cockpit, (and making 2 unloggable greasers), I was like "Yeah, I could get used to this". Kind of put my feet back on the path to...poverty? Thanks for the invitation to participate, Doug and Kristie. I've always felt strange about forums.
But being a poseur can be so fun! Imagine talking about things like Mach tuck, compressibility, turbofan bypass ratios, whether an MD-88 is a better fit for a certain flight than an MD-90....oh wait, that's airliners.net I'm thinking of....

its been much too long for me....thinking about getting some actual with a buddy tonite....dc is nice and socked in. i figure the only way to beat the seasonal disorders associated with rainy fall weather is to climb out and play above it in the sunshine.
