Merry Christmas
December 25, 2010

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

My juniority requires me to work today.  If you are home, please cherish the time with your family and friends.  For those of you flying, please stay safe.  Passenger on a plane?  Make sure to thank your crew for working over the holiday.

Looking out the window at LAX. Thanks to the person who put up the banner!

Renewed Pilot

I've endured a roller coaster career in the U.S. Aviation Industry. Currently flying the 737 on my third try with the same legacy carrier, I have also flown for a regional, fractional and start-up carrier. My piloting experience includes the 737, A320, 727, Citation Excel, Citation Bravo, Saab 340 and many light singles and twin engine aircraft. I reside in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee.

    Hey, I just found your blog, and took the time to read all the posts from the beginning forward. I can empathize with the up and down realities of your career, but congratulate you on a positive attitude as well as on your new position with Virgin America. I also recently started a new job (not a pilot), after a certain period of renewal, and also hope I’ve completed my last new-hire orientation. In any event, love of family and a sense of humor help to keep us sane and happy.

    I look forward to continued insights as you continue down the path.

    Thanks for taking the time to bring us along!
