- Total Time
I don't think I have ever gone to work in my life, I just have fun hanging aroudn airports, some pilots and airplanes. It gives be a reason to get out of bed every monring.Most people do not like going to work. That's why it's called "work". Otherwise people would say, "bye honey. I'm going to fun" instead of "...going to WORK."

So you're going to tell me when you walk out the door you say, "bye honey. I'm going to fun"???
How do you think Great Lakes got to $14,000? It's because we as pilots and an industry let it happen.
I'm done letting this happen.
I've got no problem with that sentiment, but you seem to draw the line between professional and whore at just below whatever number you're currently earning. It's disingenuous and unseemly. You, yourself, have worked for well below industry standard wages. Now that you have climbed the ladder of success, you want to pull it up behind you. You rail against those who have not yet been able realize their financial goals, and you berate those below you for doing exactly what we all had to do when we were getting started. Your ridiculous blathering about somehow price rigging a free market economy is nonsensical. You don't get to dictate what you feel should be the minimum pilot salary. The market will decide, not you.
Don't have to say it, been married 47 years and she knows I am going to have fun, because I am going to the airport. It explains the smile on my face.So you're going to tell me when you walk out the door you say, "bye honey. I'm going to fun"???
So what is the latest at WU? How many pilots on staff now and how many 350's are on the certificate? How is the schedule (if any) and how are the line checks going?
Are they still hiring?
And a lot of them post here on a regular basis telling us how miserable they are. Life is too short to be that unhappy when you have the ability to make yourself happy at all times. There is an up side to everything. Still living a childhood dream. Not that I though I would end up at KYIP, but it has been a ball and I would change very little. I count myself as truly lucky.What bothered me some was that I would fly with guys who looked at it as nothing but a job (work). They were never happy. Helm
After 11 jobs since leaving the Navy, I have adopted another slogan, "Expect nothing and you will never be disappointed? I know it sounds like having no drive, ambition or goals, but that is not the case. There is so much in this business you have absolutely no control over, these effect your job. To fret unnecessarily over those things causes ulcers, it is not worth it. Getting depressed over stupid things that you have no control over is not worth it. By expecting nothing, it will always be better than nothing. Life is a ball.What a bunch of losers. Your riccis wet dream pyip " just pay me. ********************ty salary and treat me like. 20 dollar whore, I'm just happy to be hanging out at a airport with pilots and airplanes" got to go puke now
You Are clearly a old fart that's outta touch with reality. This isn't 1962 but guys like you will never get it. And all the facts in the world will never get thru your thick skull. Keep living in your happy little life dragging the rest of your fellow pilots down. And by the way they don't enjoy hanging out with you at the airport with there little airplanes. They talk about you behind your back about how you need to retire and how your nothing but a old fart blow hard..
