Guys....the trust me to be a Captain

Post by UAL027 Gary Cauley » Apr 25th, '17, 15:45

After 2 weeks of being reminded how much I hate sitting in a class room, the tests are done and ground school is done for Upgrade! About to enjoy the next week off and hopefully catch a little of Gary's singing on TeamSpeak before heading down to Atlanta for 2 weeks to sit in the Sweatbox and prove I know how to fly a plane.

I know there are quite a few guys in flight training right now. To them, I know there is days that are going to suck, sitting in boxes, struggling with maneuvers or lessons, and weather cancellations (well the last one isn't going to go away at least). Stick with it, you are on track for one of the most rewarding (and easiest) careers out there. It can be a long rod, but the end result is well worth it.

Catch you guys on teamspeak soon where we can resume our normal complaining and ridiculously long flights.

Feels good to be an airline captain....even if VATSIM still wants to ban me :lol: :lol:

Congratulations Gary! I think they've made a wise choice although I might not mention too loudly about looking forward to Gary's singing in teamspeak. That might go as a black mark against your ability to practice good judgement. :lol:

Hey Gary,

Big Congrats! I just signed up for the Skywest Program. There wasn't a box to request you as a mentor, so you're spared.
