Yup, the 20 min callout basically means you can't do anything... I guess you really didn't make it to the city, if you think OC was bad.

No offense taken, btw.

What type of schedule does ameriflight or airnet and those type of companies have? Is it similar to IFL with their 20 minute call-out or do they do a 7 on 7 off or what? Do you get hard days off at any of those companies?

Haha, yeah I've been to a few tigers games, did a little contract flying out of DET also so I got the grand tour of the beautiful eas side. Some parts of the OC had alot of money in it, decent lakes if you could afford to enjoy them, especially just south of ptk. I enjoyed other places in Michigan, got up north alot, that wasnt so bad.

You probably want to post that question as the start of a thread but I interviewed at airnet and all their flying is scheduled as far as what they told me. I think ameriflight and airnet do like monday through friday or saturday flying, checks, ups, fedex and dhl feeder routes. Leave at 8 am fly for an hour somewhere, sit all day then fly back in the evening. I got the offer and decided I had enough night flying at ifl and didnt want to stay doing that.

[QUOTE=Ellen;145320]Exactly. These planes are very old too; before the era of steam gauge cockpit even. QUOTE]

? Don't think they're quite THAT old. When you've done a few months, you'll know how to fly. Except for single pilot light twin flying, flying old jets is as good as it gets for learning situational awareness and basic skills.

Flying jets IS NOT THE PLACE to learn situational awareness. A C172 or a Warrior is the place to learn situational awareness. Please send me your wake invitation now so you don't forget.

I'll be the first to admit that I got a little lost when I was shooting a VOR approach into AJO a few nights ago. In was marginal VFR and I lost my place in reference to my next destination to do another VOR approach. I'm just glad I didn't pull that crap in a DC-9. My situational awareness has certainly improved a little more after that.
