Anyone jealous? Your mouth will drop when you see how many hours she had.

Her friend—who was also a corporate chief pilot—became her mentor and supporter, and helped her quickly climb the ratings ladder.

With a whopping 250 hours in her logbook, Marcinko got another unheard-of offer from her mentor friend: He needed a third crew member on his corporate flying job in a Gulfstream II jet.

Suddenly, Marcinko was an official right-seater in the G-II. "The first flight was kind of crazy," she adds, "I didn't remember how to open the cabin door." Marcinko—who had never flown anything larger than ATP's Piper Seminole—was now a Gulfstream pilot.

And the CP's new squeeze. It's good to be the boss.

If I owned the G2 I would have fired her and her mentor for hiring her. Anything else I say would get me banned.

Let the buyer beware.

I am not raining on this young lady's parade, but I don't see a humble attitude reflected by GG, only a self-promoting image. Again, that's my observation.

Perhaps as she gains more experience and additional mentoring from a more diverse pilot group, she will gain more credibility. As she gains more flight experience to gain her ATP, perhaps she will be in a position to accept a command G-IV position.

I applaud her for her charitable work and the desire to inspire...right now, I think she needs a more grounded mentor.

Again, not trying to slam a young pilot who has done very well gained a strong following.

Appalud her charitable work, but there isnt a snowball's in hell chance i'd put my family onboard that plane. Vertigo hit the proverbial nail on the head with that comment concerning her "mentor". Going to TEB, fine. Going to West Africa is another ball of wax.

From her website:

Quote:
As a child, Nadia channeled her entrepreneurial spirit by selling invisible pets to neighboring kids.
Her website pro-actively uses women to generate business, but that isn't frowned upon in European countries like it is here in PC America by the femi-nazis.

...(once again, taken from her website)....

Just sayin'.

Nice try, but it falls woefully short. I'M not one of those individuals. Thanks for playing.
You remember the saying about what happens when one "assumes"....

You don't need to be. The points still stand.

Thanks for playing.

Is that you, Rush? Because it sounds pretty close to the Limbaughism, "Feminism is for ugly women."

That strikes me as a bit shallow, like virtually all Limbaughisms and Limbaugh listeners.

Nah, he sounds like a young angry pup who hasn't experienced enough of life yet or has and hasn't had much luck with the ladies.... Sounds like the type who has to order a mail order bride from asia to get someone thoroughly compliant. (GOD....how boring.)
