I wish I had the foresight to make a new sig while I still had free access to Photoshop and Illustrator through school

DL the free 30 day trial. Once the 30 days is up, you can open the program once more. Just never close it out and you can extend well beyond that.

What type of plane are you doing your training in?


Cessna 172. The place I'm learning has 3, 2have the G1000 and the other has analog gauges. I actually prefer the gauges, but the G1000 planes are available more often.


I've only flown with glass but I do like it. All our planes have the G1000 but the jet is going to have something different (still Garmin though). Our flyign club has a SR20 and a SR22. Both are really nice planes and I'm lucky to be able to fly them.

I imagine you would have access to those planes since they're built in your backyard. Very Happy I "grew up" on analog dashes in maintenance so I'm comfortable with them, but I've been working on glass systems for 7 or 8 years now so it's not foreign to me either. I just like being able to do a sweep and get back outside. I imagine with practice I'll be able to learn a sweep on the glass too.

I am curious, what type of program are you in? Is it a corporate type program that trains you from scratch? I was always curious about those type programs and how they work.

We have an company sponsored flight club. We have a 2010 SR20 and a 2011 SR22 (both with G1000). Our Flight Ops department has first dibs on the planes if they need them for customer training, otherwise, we can rent them out whenever. Any of the flight Ops pilots can instruct for the club, if they want, but there are really 3 instructors that teach. One is dedicated to the flight club. Our training is more intense than most, because they are company owned planes and we work for the company, but having more training is never a bad thing. I did all my ground study on my own, but they offer a ground school twice a year for all members.

Every two weeks we have $5 taken out of our paychecks for membership dues. The flight club is open to any employee or their family members, which is really nice. I won't say what our rental rates are, but I have never seen a cheaper flight club.

The company really promotes flying and wants you to acquire the skills, so they give us everything possible we need to succeed.

Everyone on NFL Comparisons forum is saying that 'Dre doesn't have the ball skills to be a red zone threat... They didn't watch many Texans games then...


In other news, Singleton gonna be a strikeout machine but he'll produce some big HR numbers.

Just took a job in Wenatchee National Forest in Washington. It's not permanent, but it's a great field opportunity in a beautiful place.

That's a fantastic area. Been through there once. My goodness is it beautiful.
