At Focus Air Cargo, we had a cat go from seaplane (Chaulks) to right seat of the 747 classic. He did an outstanding job also.

Oh....I thought you were one of our guys that actually DID get their multi-engine rating in a DC-8 (PFE's)....LOL!

I see your point but I still think that regional guys/gals should get a shot. Like I said, I guarantee that a lot, if not most of the new hires at UPS in 2000-2001 were regional hires.

So where DID you get YOUR international heavy jet experience?

You must be ex-military or have gotten a helluva break somewhere back in time.

I have 930 SEL. I lucked out since I was the only MEI at the field.

So Biggs I gotta ask: based on the latest message from the union do you still believe that "the only way the guys are coming off the panel is through vacancies. The company has already said this and the union agrees."?

The concern about FE displacements to the front seat has often been over stated. There are 61 front seaters remaining on the 747 Classic subject to displacement. There are 35 FE's, but only 11 of these are within the expected upgrade age. The rest will go to the DC8 or retire.

First jet I ever flew was a 747, and the first jet PIC was in a 767!!
