Nice!

One request. For us noobs, who can not distinguish one cockpit from another, can you give aircraft types?

Haha! Funny. Since Bill is on a trip and on reserve for the next 6 days, I'll do his for him after the Animals are in bed later :)

Feb-May 2007 Piper Saratoga TC

It's been a fun journey so far. I never would have gotten this job if I hadn't flight instructed. Only 46 years of flying left until retirement! Based on the age 65 thing.

My first flying job (right seat in a King Air for a bank)


I didn't have enough hours to get a full-time job with them so I went to fly divers...


I ended up traveling with the Air National Guard more than flying during that time and finished college. After I found out I was disqualified from becoming a ANG Pilot, I went to fly for AirNet...


It was fun flying the Baron, but I really wanted to fly for the "Home Team". A hiccup in my training at AirNet led to Skyway...


This was by far the most of my success so far. I upgraded in 6 months. Skyway shutdown in April of '08 so...



I am now flying an Embraer for Chautauqua and soon to be furloughed...

The last one seems like the most challenging to fly........

My absolute favorite of all time...since I was a little boy...till I flew it... and then after (and even today) -- the one I look back most fondly on as if she was my first true love... was the Douglas Racer. The DC9. (sometimes affectionately called the Romulan War Vessel in reference to the aqua-green color of the cockpit).

I miss her desperately.

Cool thread, Zap. Here's my progression.


The dreaded job at GIA flying the might Beech 1900:


The replacement jet (CRJ-200) at Pinnacle:


My current gig in the B-717 (believe it or not, this is actually a DC-9 type on my certificate):
