Well, I'm in the same situation as FEM, but slightly different. I don't work yet, but I've finished High School. In december 5 (I found the exact date today) I will start my flying lessons. As most of you know, my hopes are to become a Commercial Airline Transport Pilot and hopefully work for TAP Portugal as a pilot. Very Happy

I'm a High School student, I am not sure if that has the same meaning as in the US but I am 15.

As for careers choices... Not sure about a pilot, but hopefully something to do with Aviation!!

Thanks,

I would say the M stands for Medical but I could be wrong.

I work in a warehouse (boring I know) but at the moment I'm learning IT Maintance & IT networking.

Maybe US airports will show some good sense for a change, and refuse to spend the money necessary for modifications to accommodate the 380.

For the last 13 years I have been in the employ of American Greetings, also know in other parts of the world as Carlton Cards, Gibson, or Plus Mark Greetings. I began here as a lowly field service Tech right out of college and am currently a statistics analyst and IT manager in the customer service division for agInteractive (americangreetings.com, bluemountain.com, egreetings.com, midiringtones.com, kiwi.com…..) But it looks like that will be changing soon as “the wiser heads” have decided to outsource 95% of our volume to a sweatshop in Florida. I fear that there will soon be no statistics to analyze for me. Anybody in north east Ohio looking for help?

Littleal100 is lying guys. No one would ever quit a flying gig from Southwest, which apparently he says he had. He also claims that he is now flying for U.S. Air; they haven't hired in over 5 years.

His grammar is a whole other deal that I dont even want to get into. What 20 year pilot can't write a grammatically correct sentence. Something tells me this guy is probably about 12 years old trying to impress us. Pretending to be someone you aren't isn't impressive at all. Just come out and tell us what you really do.

One question will finally settle whether or not this guy is for real....

Littleal100,

What is your domicile and whats your per diem rate? This is an easy answer for anyone flying for US; if you dont though it takes quite a bit of research to find these numbers out.

Guest, you stole those words from my own mouth - a pilot that has ratings and currently flys 5 different airframes, 15 or 20 years experience as a pilot and cant even spell Virgin Atlantic correctly - I dont think so! Wall Bashing

He doesn't seem like much of a pilot to me.
