Question For Pilots

Mon Jun 11, 2001 3:46 am

This question is for all current pilots. I just wanted to know what your first flying assignment was when you graduated and what your current flying assignment is. I'm asking this because I intend to pursue flying as my career in about 2 years or so. Wish me luck  Smile.

Thanks in advance to all those who reply. Your feedback is much appreciated

Hey ARV79!

I started from College as a float pilot in Northwestern Ontario. I flew a Cessna 206 for 6 months, packed on about 400 hours and a few hours in a Beaver.
Now I am Flying a PC-12 (those single engine, full EFIS, 9 seats birds) part time and also working on the managment side as well. I have always wanted to fly, but, I was getting bored with the many days off, so, I applied for a management position at the same company. Now I work the best of both worlds!!!

Ciao  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My first paid flying job was giving tourists airtours of the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. From there I went to corporate aviation, then to a major airline (it really sucked!) and for the last 15 years I have worked as a corporate pilot flying Lears, Astras, and Galaxys. Best job in the world!
