Anyone want to check in here after working for GTA? They got my career started and I tried to go back to fly for them after a lay off and only lasted three weeks. Now I am flying a G2 and a King Air for a billionaire. I worked for GTa a full year 2000-2001. The gave me a 1500 going away check. Thanks GTA for my 2nd thousand hours.

Flew the Bonanza and Baron for Doug and Bonnie from 10/98 thru 10/99. Pay was horrible but if you went in taking it for what it was worth - strictly a time-building stepping stone, then you were miles ahead of everyone else. Surprised they've lasted as long as they have.

I was there from 2000-2001, went to Ameristar for a couple years, flew Hawker's & a Kingair 300 for a corporation in East TX until a couple years ago, and went to USA 3000 on the A320 where I'm now furloughed.

I loved that airplane. I flew for Doug & Bonnie in the summer of 95
out of NM, 'till Circus Air took the contract. Back then GTA was a
great deal and they treated me well, I remember Doug being a hand-
shake is a handshake type of guy.................How are they doing
now?

When he bent up Bourland's Baron as an MEI, I thought his days were over.

Didn't he do the same with one of D&B's planes? I hear he's a nurse now.

Yeah, he's a nurse. Doing good as well. Just talked to him the other day. I never worked for GTA, but flew over at Circusair for 6 month. It was my student he flew with that day so I can go to an interview.

Cheers

Holy CRAP.

There you are!

How's things?

RC is still a wanker.

Glad P is doing well as a nurse. My god, he knew the regs like a red-arsed bandit. Unreal.

EG is driving a Hawker in DFW, doing well, married well, and is awesome.

YOU. Yoooouuu.... miss you around here. I'll be downgrading in Sep/Nov time frame.

So, the suck continues at the Pee Dee Tee.

***BTW: Is Bart still at EasyJet? And was it the PDT interview?
