Private Pilot since 2006. Checked out in a Cherokee 180 (complex), Cessna 152/172, and I'm kicking around the idea of working on a tail wheel endorsement in a Champ. I'm also the airport manager for KHUT, and president of a local pilots group called the Hutchinson Area Aviators. Not to mention an avid flight simulator guy. I have a partial home cockpit (yoke/pedals/throttle quadrant/start switch panel) and 3 24" monitors.

Many thanks to the military aviatiors, we all owe you a lot.

That said, you do have one of the best jobs in the world!

I've been flying for about ten years, currently teaching new hires for All Nippon Airways in California.

Taco Gunner -

Unfortunately not; we're fat on pilots like everyone else right now. If it's the "VERY large fractional operator" I'm thinking of, any word on call backs? Things seem to be slowly turning around...

Are you based at Moffett on the HH60?

DM based....and no worries. As for callbacks...who the hell knows. I have a date but I am not basing much on it.
