    WARNING: Comair JM in JFK

    WARNING: Comair JM in JFK

    That's beautiful! When they called me at home in past years on my cell phone I was always on vacation in Hawaii or Europe somewhere.

    I used it as I was paid & trained to use it except for the obvious as in ATC mandated speeds, etc. & during the descents. I (passengers too) did not like the negative G roller coaster ride descents and I did not like playing Crossing Restriction Altitude Roulette.

    LuggageWorks/PurdyNeat prices

    The skid plates are very nice as are the Coyote Works bags. You might also be able to attach the plates to a Scott bag as they are available as an accessory. All the best!

    I do it the long & painful way...each & every leg with the "N" number & A/C Serial Number. If anything, it is fun to look back on the flight history. It also made quite a positive impression at my last interview.

    Placement in NJA aircraft?????

    All of the notifications came via email. It was approximately a five-six month wait before I received an interview slot with LAX listed as my first choice base. Best of luck to you.
