I am heading up to school in a few months, but my thing is this, I know that I will not be working on the dock, I may be flying a cardboard box with a lawnmower engine on it for peanuts, but i know, just as i know the sun is...

I didn’t mean that all wal-mart jobs are bad, but ever walk into a wal-mart and see the people with the blue shirts that say "can I help you", hell I don’t even like shopping there, the people look like night of the living dead lol.

I have been nosing around this forum, looking at BFC underground and a few other places and I have found one thing in common (or at least here at the underground website), it seems that everyone is very sour, like when I asked a question about getting a job right out of flight school, or just some o...

Anyway I get what you saying and see the logic in it...I still I confident that I will find someone who will give me a left seat (not as a instructor), I may be flying hors...

How long you been on the board there Jimbo? Any who, what I said was now that I dont know everything, I'm not stupid, I know that school cant teach real-world type situations that can only be taught through experience. However I am just trying to say that it seems like there are a whole bunch of peo...

I would like to get some real experience...however I won’t play the hope game. All I was saying is that if one has the right attitude and energy (and puts enough mileage on their feet, car, etc going from place to place) one should be able to find a job, perhaps not flying a c-130 through mountain p...

My conclusion was; it appears that tranning is what you make of it, if you find a good instructor and put your heart into it it's all the same...am I right on this? My...
