It's been an intresting week around my house this week.....One Grandson took his seat in a CRJ-200 for Delta airlines and another boarded a Navy jet on his way to learning how to land on an aircraft carrier....As a former commercial pilot myself I feel very proud of their choices......:smile:

Sounds like a great future for them. I started in aviation as an A&P and wouldn't trade that experience for anything.

Carrier Jocks - ya baby! That's flying!

Problem is transitioning to a stable strip, 10,000 feet long. Used to fly USAir quite a bit - never had a nice landing. To this day I believe they only hired Navy pilots.
