Going to be flying a Falcon 10

...and yes, the company is paying for the type rating. However, I like to think I'm paying for it, since my paycheck is lower than those at the regionals... haha, but no complaints here! :-D Hell, I'm gonna be flying a falcon all over the place!

what a dweeb. When will these kids learn that the speed or size of an aircraft doesn't mean anything? Never heard a doctor say "I make less then a high school drop-out, but hey...I get to work in this huge hospital". The funny thing is one day he'll grow up, and realize that life demands more the fast jets. Right at that moment, another low-time pilot just looking to have fun flying jets will undercut him.

Why..oh..why is this profession filled with so many idiots.

Apples to Oranges?

Do you even need a degree to go to one of these regionals to fly a CRJ or ERJ?

Commercial
airplane multi engine, instrument
1000-600tt
50-200 multi

But no college degree required, right? At the Legacys you need a degree...

My father is an Orthopedic Surgion...
4 year pre-Med
4 years Medical School
4 years residence

Another note worthy detail is that flying can be a hobby that can be turned into a profession... Not possible in my father's line of work!

How's Philly, Mike?

The postscript to that story is that that kid ended up losing his job because his employer's underwriter wouldn't insure him for the Falcon, so I guess the joke is on him.
