Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm heading off to the airlines for training next week and I really need to focus on that, so I won't be posting as much from now on. I am heading for the airlines now!! It's time to "Set Take Off Thrust"!
I will miss talking on this forum a lot, but I'll post from time to time. Feel free to email me anytime with interesting news from Airliners.net.
I am soooooo excited!! I'm going to be an airline pilot!!

With SkyWest, your topic should read:
"Set 100% Torque"
What's your SSN? The last four digits will dictate your class seniority which will affect your choice of domiciles and sim sessions. The lower the number, the better off you'll be. Mine is 9800 leaving me second from the bottom of the list (then for sim you pick someone with a higher seniority to stay away from the 4am sessions!). I had a choice of Yuma or Palm Springs. Two weeks later, though, when the new hire class started I was bumped to my next choice of Sacramento. It took three months to get to Portland where I am now. Things are moving fast right now, so you're always just a short wait from where ever you want to be based.

You should submit weekly posts about your experiences. I'm sure it would be valuable for all those considering a career like yours. You'll probably want to check with your superiors first. I'd hate to see you get in trouble.

Thanks for your comments everyone. I was trained at "Pilot's Aviation" in Georgetown, TX. They have 1 simple package to get you your flying licsense, then another package to get you "Multi-Engine". Finally, the commercial part.
Udo, I will still be posting, but not as much. I doubt I will ever fly an Airbus, I will shoot for the 737's, then move up to the 757's, then move up to 777's, and finally, the 747-400.
