Can someone pm me a phone number for following up with Great Lakes? Sent the resume in to Aaron Rex.

GLA is, and always be, a stepping stone. Just like any other regional or commuter (unless your life goal has always been to fly a 50 seat regional for the rest of your life). Flight instructing is a stepping stone, just like the commuters. The only difference is that with swings in the economy, and the airlines. You may spend more times at the stepping stone than your buddies who got into the industry 2 years earlier, but its still a stepping stone. In the early 90's peole spent just as much time at the commuters as they do now. I think people forget the swings in the industry and forget that 4-6 years at a commuter is fairly average over the last 20 years!! The young guys seem to think that 2 years flying at a regional and then heading to a major is the norm.....Its not.... When the military kicked out 3 times the pilots, commuter guys had to get 3 times the flight time to be competitive....Contrary to some peoples belief..Xjet is still a stepping stone, unless you like to claim you fly for CO when your actually flying your 50 seat RJ around...Again, not trying to bash, just putting a realistic spin on things!!
