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!!

Best Regards,

B744

Congrats on following your dreams!

Did you get hired by Great Lakes or SkyWest? If you're coming to SkyWest, welcome aboard. .. there's no better time to get here! Depending on what your experience is you might get right in the RJ!

The Brasilia is a fun airplane to fly. You're going to love it!

Hey, congratulations! How did you do it?

Maybe you can post a quick timeline of what steps you took to get there (and how long it took...) might be
inspiring to those who are "holding short"

Just follow your dreams buddy. I went through very rough times (money, grades, etc), but I focused on my goal of flying. You can do it!

You should probably get a four year degree or it might be hard to move up to the majors.

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.

Have fun!!

I have friends that are SkyWest flight attendants, and they all say that you will move up fast.
Good luck with your career!

Happy Flying...enjoy the Brasilias...My favorite Turbo-prop!

I wish you good luck on your way into the cockpit! Who knows, maybe you end up as a proud 'bus' pilot with UA one day?  

By the way, I'm sorry to say that but I fear I won't miss your posts too much...

Udo

Where were you working previously? Were you flight instructing?

What kind of flight time did they higher you with.

Any info you could provide would be great. I have a friend looking for some recent hiring info.

Thanks

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.

Skywest doesn't have a flow through arrangement with UAL, does it?

Congratulations on your success. I hope someday to be your colleague at UAL, should I be lucky enough to fly for the great airline my grandfather flew for.

Yep, but United will still operate the -400 with the 747X. So now it goes, 737, 757+767, 777, 744, 747X!!

Anyway, thanks for your nice comments everyone!
