Just wondering if there is ANY good news to report from the Frac's? Anyone seeing an increase in the right directions as far as flights/live legs? Any glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel yet?

If Obama would stop slamming aviation in general, I think things wouldnt be so bleak. He sure loves to take that 747 out of the ole hangar for a nice spiffy ride here and there.

The good news? Fischman is stille STUPENDOUSLY awesome! Oops. Wrong thread again......




Actually, on the good news front. I have no a$$ left because I flew it off this tour. Would have flown more but we had a few, er, em, anomalies with the airplane. And we had a brand new Marquis customer in the Gulfstream. The rich folk are starting to realize the world hasn't come to an end and they still need to do business and they need private aviation to do that business. Even the Pretender in Chief is starting to say the economy isn't that bad. Of course, he's now running for re-election so it may be wishful thinking on his part :rolleyes:

Hey Mr. Limbaugh, is that you?

I wish John Mccain was in office:
-both wars won
-the economy right on track
-there'd be peace in the Middle East
-America's popularity running high, even the French like us
-Al Qaeda defeated
-no more illegal inmigration
-crime down by 99.99%
-instead of global warming we'd have global cooling
-people wondering if he is in reality Batman....

did I miss anything? keep in mind he's only been in office 100 days

Ummm... not even 60 yet. The arithmetic police have arrived.:smash:

I have to admit it, my liberal friends were right!

They told me if I voted for McCain, the nation's Hope would deteriorate, and sure enough there has been a 20 point drop in the Consumer Confidence Index since the election, reaching a lower point than any time during the Bush administration.

They told me if I voted for McCain, the US would become more deeply embroiled in the Middle East, and sure enough tens of thousands of additional troops are scheduled to be deployed into Afghanistan.

They told me if I voted for McCain, that the economy would get worse and sure enough unemployment is approaching 8.8% and the new stimulus packages implemented recently have sent the stock market lower than at any time since 9-11.

They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "crooks" in high ranking positions in Federal Government and sure enough, several recent cabinet nominees and Senate appointments revealed resumes of bribery and tax fraud.

Well I ignored my Democrat friends in November and voted for McCain, and they were right - all of their predictions have come true!

It was John McCain running. Not Chuck Norris.:cool:

Besides. Obama is more like the Puppet in Chief. He's got Bill and Hillary's hands up his ass.

How can anyone not see that Bush left this ship in a VERY nose down attitude? Did you think a new President was going to just arrive and right the ship? The US economy is massive and doesn't turn on a dime. It's going to take time and that fact is true no matter who sits in the oval office.

I also have seen a uptick in the amount of flying. This tour was study, last tour was very busy. Hopefully things will start to turn. Something needs to happen.

Nice try at a joke, but truth is funnier. First Obama did not sign the stimulus in the oval office. He signed it here in Denver att he Museum of Nature and Science. The desk he used was from the governors mansion. That desk had been purchased by the previous Republican governor on sale and at non-union store.

Who the hell asks their furniture store if they are unionized or not, and who the hell cares? Just curious, I did some furniture shopping recently and that thought never entered my simple little brain.

All I can say is I'm relishing that the Bristol Palin "we love each other and we'll be getting married soon---look at our family values" campaign sham has been exposed.

They stuck the redneck punk father in an expensive suit, put an engagement ring on Bristol's finger, had the "happy couple" hold hands on stage with Bristol holding Sarah's baby at campaign events and they thought that would fool voters..... :rolleyes:

Thankfully (most) people aren't that fukcing stupid...

The owner of this furniture store, Jake Jabs, is the face of the company, American Furniture Warehouse. He is as well known in Denver as the greatest football quarterback ever, John Elway. He has even been made fun of on South Park because status in Denver. Last fall he was a big backer of anti-union Amendment 47. He used his notoriety and company in many commercials backing 47.

I love that Jake got roasted...that made my whole month. I like to think my "NO ON 47" yard sign helped a little... :laugh:

You got to be kidding me. There has been one response remotely related to the thread title - by gutshotdraw. The rest of you idiots launch into assaults on everything else in the world.

For some of us, myself included, we have been recently put on the outside looking in. We miss being on the inside (you know - job - paycheck those minor things) and this thread was started hoping there may be some positive news to report.

If nothing positive to report, then don't. The non-aviation thread is only a little further down - post that stuff down there if you wouldn't mind.

Yeah,

In addition to the new Marquis customer this week, I'm told we recently sold shares in the G-550 worth about 500 flight hours a year to a previous client that needed more lift.

We're in the middle of a very strong month here at XOJET...the hours we had booked going into the month of March were an all time company record, and the pace has kept up with our peak months. Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come for everyone! (not in any way implying that our level of activity is a barometer of the industry as a whole...just wishful thinking)
