It's the damnedest thing. Out of the clear blue I remembered a conversation I had with a Simmons FO that I had just met. He casually mentioned he had been with the company 4 years. I remember at the time thinking that it seemed like a long time to be an FO. This was somethink like 15 years ago. Anyway, that's what prompted the question.
Always thought the ATR was a neat airplane. Would love to have flown it.
