Would you rather.... get a papercut on your nipple or have your mom catch you masterbating?!

I dont work for either of the companies, with that said


I'ld go to Colgan because their pay is a little better and I hear the upgrade times isnt that much longer than great lakes. Pay isnt everything, but with your options, it plays a big role. Also I think the contract is shorter at Colgan.

I was offered the job at colgan, if that counts for anything, HA. good luck

Well you guys beat me to it.
I have an opportunity to buy a car, the 2 I have to choose from are a 1990 Ford Tempo 2 door and a 1983 Chevy Chevette. What would you choose?

The Chevette is where it's at, mainly because if someone asks you what type of car you can drive you can say " a vette".

However, she wasn't getting anywhere, looked down at his assortment of "arrousal devices", and saw that they were all pictures of guys. Undaunted, she quickly called in his father, and had him finish the job. The end.

A pilot buddy and I were living in Tulsa, OK. I was checking out Lakes and he was like 'don't go to great mistakes'. I did, and the next thing I know is he's hired by Colgan, commuting to Bar Harbor and Portland BFE etc. from Okieland. Sure he made a little more, but it didn't last, he didn't move and didn't upgrade. I got 1300 TPIC and he left and got SIC time at FlexJet, then left there, don't know where he went to. Dave, where you at now, SKW? My moral is: location is important.

He sounds like a real winner.

I love Tulsa.

If you've got 1500+, I'd go Colgan. They're upgrading quickly but need the 2500 and 1000 in type to give it. If you're low on time, go Colgan, they pay much better and are standing on better financial ground. They've also got the Slaab to look forward to... and flight attendants ("You want MORE orange juice and pretzles???")

Just my .02,

Shy
