Re: A friend of mine.

Now that is one story that made me smile. Way to go!! He's definitely born for the job, a lesser pilot might not have faired as well.

Be fast or be last.

Re: A friend of mine.

We used to go up in his dads plane all the time. We'd fly up to Moosehead Lake in Maine with his dad. It's a really cool feeling landing a plane in the water, quite different.

Mmmmmmm, Worms n' Dirt, what a tasty treat. Yeah it's kinda out there, and we would hunt and fish mainly up there. It was a nice place to get away from city life.

Re: A friend of mine.

awesome. I had a friend who went DWC but only for a year. he did awful, mostly cause he drank way too much and smoked too much pot and obviously form his grades didn't do any work.

I friend of mine that I went to school with just started working for a company in Florida last week flying a Lear Jet. So he has his Commercial Pilots License with CFI (certified flight instructor), multi engine, VFR (instrument) and turbine ratings. He's well on his way to becoming big airline pilot. Plus he has his motorcycle endoresment and class A. most licensed person I know. just gotta get his coast guard certification so he can do water stuff.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
