    Hello again

    Hi all, just wanted to stop by and say hello. Kinda been out of the sim loop for a little while now and lost track of where my old friends hang out. I had the chance to vist SimRan737 and fly his awesome sim the other day and he introduced me to this site. Glad he did because it seems like the place to be.
    I can see how much progress many people have made and i must say the sims look awesome. Now that im settled with the new job at CAL Im looking forward to getting back into simming again and chatting with you all.. Talk soon.

    Mike, what a pleasant surprise to see you man! I knew that you were about to interview and/or take a line position with (CO?) last time we spoke.

    Anyhow, things are really smokin' hot over here at MC.org and it's good to have real world pilots hanging around. Hope you get a chance to contribute some in the future, and hopefully get back to work on your own flight deck project.

    Take care,

    Yeah i think last time i posted i was either going for the interview or starting training.

    The interview went excellent and im not sure if i mentioned or not however i had brought pictures of my sim project with me and the interview panel loved it! That killed about 10 min or so out of a 40min interview. Actually on the way out the door one of the guys on the panel made a joke about selling my sim to Continental for a good price if i was hired.. lol. I said we'll talk about that after im hired, while i said to myself "yeah right, im not selling this".

    Training was alot of fun and pretty intense. Alot of stuff in a short time. Most of the flight training was done in FTD's while only the last 4 sim sessions were done in the Full Flight Sim. The FTD's were pretty neat and they were really just like our sims except they were all real parts with no visuals. They really didnt even fly that good come to think of it however they were really just meant for learning procedures.

    So in school i actually had a choice of 757 or 737. I took the 737 because of the better schedule and shorter reserve time. Only downside was having to learn basically 5 different airplanes all with slightly different procedures. its funny flying the line because you can fly 1 leg in a old round dial 737-300 and the next leg in a brand new 737-900ER. Big difference.

    Anyhow enough of the babble.. Its nice to see everyone again and im having alot of fun looking at the awesome progress you have all made. I actually went a little backwards in my project and completely dismantled it getting ready to move to Houston TX hopefully within the next few months. Any simmers from there btw?? Also i wound up trading a bunch of major parts with a good friend of mine in NY which will allow me to rebuild my sim in TX and do things a little different.

    Hopefully i can share some experiences with you all and offer some help/advise with your 737 projects now that im actually flying them.
