    Thumbs up G550!!


    Got my type on Tuesday in Savannah! Finished the Enhanced Navigation course today. 3 years ago PPW had a job posting that I followed up on. Who would have thought it would lead to a G550 (with a G650 on order for 2016)? Now, it's off to CRJ recurrent next week then the altitude chamber.

    Thank you PPW!!!!!

    i would say the job has been good to me. Just updated my logbook, I have 336 hours in the G550. Not a time builder job, but I no longer want to build a lot of time! I get a lot of time with family- that's the best part. And CLEAREDDIRECT is a short ferry ride away!

    Cheers-
