  1. Unfortunately, there are probably a lot of kids who will take it as an example and try it for themselves....

  3. The two weeks is supposed to be a courtesy to the employer to find your replacement. A lot of times an employer might have adequate staff already, or find a replacement before two weeks. These are things that should be worked out between employee and employer civilly. The OP has the situation portrayed in a negative manner (which could be the case), but it might be that he thought he deserved two weeks worth of pay and couldn't come to an agreement with the employer. The bottom line is the employer has a business to run and if your leaving, the next person in line has to become first priority, like it or not.
  4. Congrats! I took a demo flight with a guy from Italy at pelican, is he still there? How do you like the training so far?
  5. If you ask me, save your money and pay at least part of the training in cash. I was going to start training a year or so ago, then decided what fry is saying is pretty accurate. Check with any loan calculator. Figure 60000 start to finish (maybe more) and you'll be paying at least $500 for the next 20 years. Anyways, Im now living with the parents again saving some money. If you cant find the drive to save at least some of the money for your dream, then your probably not going to have the drive to make that 20% passing rate.
  6. Thats the first one I saw, I was about to post there is no way he was better, but if you look at the myspace video, you can see they edited the clip to only contain the actual opening of the bottles, who knows how many tries he actually had to do it.
  7. I would have to agree with them, if you can find the drive to finish college, then thats what I would suggest. You may also be able to get a better job after college and save the money up faster. Try taking a few flying lessons here and there while in college. Maybe that will keep you happy enough to finish school.
  8. Im curious, does anyone know if they make you sign a contract even if you have your own money or decide to get an outside loan? What if someone wants to get only a PPL? Or is this school only for 0-CFi with thier financing.
  9. How much did you pay for that new car to build your credit? How did you pay back your student loans? Or are you still paying them?
  10. I was wondering what tests are performed when you get your class1. I took one and I thought it was the stupidest physical I have ever taken. I think he wasnt doing his job properly and Just wanted everyone elses experience here.

    I had it done also. About 10 years ago. It was the best thing I have ever done. I had the regular lasik I guess where they cut the flap instead of scraping the cells off. Was painless, finished fast, the worst part about the whole procedure was all the drops you have to put in your eye afterwards. I really dont remember much of the procedure. But its definately reccomended in my book. My vision has deteriorated slightly in one eye, but thats probably just from age. I spend alot of time on computers as well. My vision now is noticable to me that its not perfect, but I never wear the glasses. They dont make contacts for me since its so weak.
  12. Can anyone get into this event? Or is it just invitation only?
  13. I was wondering, for all of the contract pilots who spend alot of time away from home, when you get a job, do they find housing for you? or do you stay in hotels most of the time or what?
