Congrats Ox!


Thanks John! Any chance your going to get Forest to pick you up for our little practice in a couple weeks?


Doubtful, I'm @ NAS Pensacola now... still trying to work a ride up to B2OSH though.

Maybe there's a beechtalker going from the FL panhandle area and wants someone to split 100LL costs with? :pray:

Thanks Neal! You might not remember but we talked about me doing this very thing about 5 years ago before the FO ATP requirement went into effect.

Guess it's taken me a while to get with the program!

And yeah I'll keep this thread going with training and my experiences.

One tidbit that goes along with this thread title well is one of the interviewers made it clear how little he works. He said all his friends told him don't go to the airlines you'll be gone all the time. And now his friends all make fun of him for seeming like he never works and is home all the time.

His career path was similar to mine. Started with a business degree (not sure what he did) and hated it. Went to flight school got a job flying charter jets and now to the regionals.


Matt,

I absolutely remember that phone call! Better late than never! I hope it works out for you and I know you'll enjoy the training and flying - Skywest is a great operation. Once you understand the work rules, contract, and get a little seniority then you can figure out a way to work less than most of your peers (but you will make less most likely too).

-Neal

Congrats Ox - hope this works out well for you. Are you still going to make it out to KC area to fly with Beechnutz after your move?

Every trip I make to a Beechnutz event my daughter still asks me to bring back some airplane cookies!

I sure hope to get back with the Nutz at least every once in a while. Maybe I'll get Sara to make some more cookies and bring them to OSH this year for you!

Congrats on your new position, Matt!

You are going to learn and see a whole bunch of stuff you didn't even know you didn't know. Enjoy every minute of the ride.

As far as avoiding work?

Meh.

I'm on reserve and I aggressively pick stuff up. Not that it isn't fun to get paid to not fly, but there are only so many years left for me to operate these airplanes. And there is nothing better than walking out the door with six days of clothes and a good attitude.

Somebody has to fly all night - it might as well be me.
