    Video: Gippsland Airvan Flight Trial

    It does look like a 207. I wonder if it's cheaper. That would pretty much be my dream plane. Pretty impressive short-field landing, but I'd like to know what kind of take-off performance it gets. As if I could afford one anyway, but if you're going to dream, why not do your homework? :)

    Yes. If you have reservations there and have filled out the little online form from her website, she'll send you a welcome email with confirmation and directions and such. We just got our travel docs yesterday in the mail.

    dispatch question

    I completed my dispatcher training and took the exam when I turned 21. I worked as a flight follower for a part 135 air ambulance company who flew Lears and Citations until I finally got my license in the mail. There are lots of part 135 companies who hire "flight coordinators/flight followers"...

    Jump seat privileges

    I'm a dispatcher and I'm in CASS, but I'm still limited mostly to carriers which have a reciprocal agreement with my company. Granted, it's not the largest company in the industry, but it's Part 121. I can't fly on Frontier, Delta, American, or United. I've flown on Alaska, U.S., Hawaiian, Air...

    Is picking Hawaii a waste of time? Are there ANY "waste of time" states?

    It's a moot point, and I'm VERY greatful I got picked up by ZAN, but I do wonder if they would consider Alaskans similarly at PHNL. Alaskans have sort of the same plight as Hawaiians, being so far-removed from the other states. The difference is obviously the lattitude and associated temps...

    Well I know that if I applied for Alaska and they mistakenly gave me Arkansas I'd be royally pissed.

    March Panels - Selected or Not Poll

    I finally caved and called ACD. At first, I was only going to ask what I should be looking for in my inbox. The gentleman quite agreeably volunteered that the subject line would be "ATCS Interview Inquiry", but he couldn't tell me who the sender would be. Then, in a split-second crumble, I asked...

    Win-Win Situation???

    If pleasing God is what pleases you, then do as you please. Be honorable, comitted, and sincere. If everything comes together for the ATC position and you'd still like to pursue it, then explain to your current employer that you have just been offered your dream. Be appreciative and give them...

    Cutting some slack

    Sounds like a very sensible man. If people would wait for the process to happen (which they must anyway), it would go better for everyone.
