I didn't say it was you.

That's why you select instructors/check airmen based on their skills, knowledge and professionalism vs being a member of the inner sanctum.

Default SIR.

Hello,

I have a question about your schedule.

I am wondering if it is a common schedule to go to ICN. I am also wondering if I can expect to stay there for a day or so when I go to ICN. I am Korean and I have many friends in Korea, so I am very surprised and interested in the fact that I have the opportunity to go to Korea.

Thank you for your time.

Back during Covid yes. Now that China is open there's no need to reposition to ICN.

Right up until you tried that **** with a Marine Colonel. Then you didn't act so tough any more now, did you! You were nothing more than a bully. Glad to see the back of you.

Unfortunately, new E3 applications have been put on hold.

Reference an email seen from the Chief Pilot's office to a mate of a mate.

When I graduated in the 80's you couldn't get a flying job to save your life.
So did you end up joining Kalitta Air? I am being offered a FO 747 class. I am on the fence as the airline industry as a whole is new to me but I only have a bout 6 years left before I age out. I have been a rotor head for most of my time. I just dont know which is better, commuting and sitting on reserve and for a year or actually out flying but being gone for 16 days. I heard the new contract is much better. Is this the case?
