Thanks for the kind words, looking forward to rejecting screening your shots!   

Royal, remind me who I need to pass my bank account details to for my salary, and which weeks you said I had exclusive use of the a.net Gulfstream? Thanks.

Silly question maybe and I looked around and did a search that didnt really turn up anything, but how does one become a screener? Is there some kind of application process? Does the site advertise when they are "hiring?" Not that I would be qualified myself I dont think, but just curious!

We have "advertised" for open screener positions in the past, but for the past couple rounds of hiring we have extended invitations to join the screening crew in private.

Screeners are required to screen an average of 50 shots per day (350 week). Many on the crew do much more than that.

All airliners.net crew positions are voluntary, I can't speak for everyone, but many do it as a way to give back to the hobby they love.

No, we're not paid.   

However, use of the Gulfstream is a real bonus!

Steve - I hate to break this to you, but you have to be crew for 3 years before you get the G. Worse for you, when you moved from one team to another, the clock started over.

You do however have unlimited use of this cream puff:
