Basically, it started back in 1996 when I put up my resume while I was an FO at Skyway Airlines. Someone at Delta who was a pilot there noticed it and he put in a recommendation for me and I got hired.
After I got hired, I had no reason to keep my resume up there but I still enjoyed website design. I decided to put up a site that helped out people that were interested in the "real world" of airline flying.
I got so sick of sites that didn't address flying realistically. Honestly, being an airline pilot is the best job in the world, but it's not as glamourous as non-pilots make it out to be.
I mean, who else is going to tell you that international flying is fun, but getting food poisoning on a layover in Istanbul isn't, or having an armed escort from the airport to the hotel in Rome is a little awakening. Or that you can fly the biggest, baddest plane at an airline, but without seniority, you're going to get abused as a reserve pilot?
Visit often because I change the content sporadically. There might not be a change in a month, but then it may get updated several times a week ocassionally.
Right now I'm working on "...a day in the life of an airline pilot..." complete with pictures and examples...It may be a few weeks because it can be labor intensive but check frequently.
Thanks for the boost!
