Before my life changing accident I was a Captian for Continental Express on the ATR-42. I was a captian on some of the first aircraft to use GPS for nanigation. I also Captioned the ATR-42 using GPS into ASE. Thats Aspen Colorado. The ones I flew were almost the same as this one.

I specially remember sitting in the Left Seat of this very aircraft. Before April 14 1997 I was a four striper (Captain) for Continental Express. I have flown this very aircraft! In fact I was the PIC on some of the first commercial aircraft that used GPS for primary navigation. When Stapleton was the primary airport for Denver (Now the primary airport is DIA.) and Continentals major competitor was United. (Now there is no competition.) Continental Express used GPS for navigation and approaches into Aspen Colorado. (ASE) I remember flying from DEN (Stapleton) to AMA (Amarillo Texas) using GPS. While our PAs we could tell our passengers exactly how far AMA was away from our current position.
