Where does American find these guys.
I wonder if he told American that he really didn't want to be an airline pilot in the interview.
Can't be real, he wears his shirt and tie driving to work.

Me? T-shirt and shorts and change in the car. (It's a 3 hr drive!)

Imagine that... he reates a tutorial, puts his makeup on, drinks his coffee and smokes a cigarette, and reads the paper... all while driving. If that’s not multi-tasking... then what is?

But really folks... it appears he trying to provide some form of tutorial for those who are researchining a career as their commitment(s) are approaching an end.

“I’m going to Colombia.....in Cali.”

Stopped watching after that.

You're not suggesting I think Colombia is a city in Cali, are you? LOL. C'mon man.

Sure it was awkwardly worded as a stream of thoughts, but there was a pause (as you pointed out) meaning the overnight was in Cali (CLO).

I later found out I did mispronounce Guayaquil though. A lot of people don't realize the G is silent. Sorry.

Thanks! I never expected it to go anywhere, to be honest. I started the vlog for my writing (side gig) and the small following I have there. They asked for the comparison of the airline life, and I made a video. It was intended to be a comparison explaining the transition as a follow up to the previous video.

That video had less than 500 views until a few weeks ago and I had ~125 subscribers.

At some point YouTube took interest in the video I made a few weeks before about how I became a fighter pilot in the first place and all of the other videos took off with it (relatively speaking). I still don't really understand how their algorithms work.

Definitely not trying to be a tool. Sorry if it came off that way.

Not toolish IMO. But it is similar in format to some recent pilot vlogs which have been pretty dooshy, so maybe somebody jumped to conclusions. Some folks are sensitive about it I guess.

Meh...seems like a “look at me” Instagram, social media ***** to me....sorry.
I know that if he was currently in a fighter squadron and doin this, every roll call would have something funny to say/do with him

Probably start with “so tell us about yourself”
And end with everyone drunk and laughing at the video playing above the bar.


I think it’s pretty awesome that he is a writer...I’ll give him that
