But in the cockpit is a rare thing with your IT.

I paid ALPA dues for over 7 years. You are barking up the wrong tree, pal.

Umm, I wasn’t calling him a tool. I was responding to the earlier post and specifically stated he wasn’t a tool. 🙄🙄

as an active real life airline pilot, yeah super dorky. As a teen it was great. I played the crap out of Microsoft Flight Sim and after a while it gets boring weaving in and out of buildings in a Lear Jet. The virtual airline gave the game some direction.

Tools are people that judge other people on what they like to do with their free time.

You guys should try getting into the virtual airline world. It's a blast, you get the right PC and aircraft software then you said up your own personal parameters to get scheduled to fly.

Plenty of resources available for initial help. I programmed in 1000 hours of vacation time each year. Happiest airline experience I've ever had.
