If anyone cares for an update, my first cycle was pretty fun. Super long days all over the dang country but overall it was great. I couldnt help but sit back in awe that this was my JOB. Doesnt feel real.

Everyone at the company has been great so far. Yes 12 hour days are exhausting but it's all worth it in the end. Its a fun gig.

Good for you. Your first job is always memorable and you are lucky that you get to fly a nice airplane and see a decent chunk of the US on their dime.

That said, let us know your thoughts after your first summer there.... I hear it gets a bit hectic.

You are likely a good candidate but we recently found out classes are full until January. Best of luck MS.

Thanks buddy

It's just frustrating since I've been trying to get this job for a long time.

Thanks for the update. I look forward to getting started soon. The work has never bothered me so I am looking forward to staying busy and the constant change of scenery.

If it's not too much trouble could you give us the details of one day of flying? Where you flew, times etc.

Default You can see these on FlightAware

Go on Live Cobalt Air Flight Status ? FlightAware.

Pick a flight in the air and then look at its history. It seems they keep the same flight number for several days as that flight (and I assume the same crew) travel about.

Flight numbers represent the specific PIC and do not change. If you know the pilot, and you know their number (CNS###), you can watch him/her during their entire 8 day cycle.

Spouses have a tendency to stalk their pilots that way. [emoji849]
