Jeeze. Resurrecting an old thread from the dead. I last posted here in 2006 at only 100 hrs dreaming of hitting 1000. Fast forward a decade....

My first thousand hour milestone was flying a Super Cub, seeding at tree top out of Elliot Lake, Ontario.
My second thousand was broke flying an Ag-Cat, spraying corn out of Lucan, Ontario.

I'm halfway through to my third, with 42 different types flown.

AH the generation gap and how the times change - for me can't remember and back in the day it was only an event when you passed 10,000 hours - at a thousand hours most were still thinking of going to work in their 180 or even a cub and thinking damn only 2 more years and I might get to fly a Noorduyn or if all else fails and I'm not good enough I might fly a Beaver -- how times change :D

Going into Ft St John in my PA-20 in Jan 1973. That was four and one half years after learning to fly and 1 week after starting my first "bush" job. After that I flew over 1000 hours per year for quite awhile. Where do I want to be? Alive after retirement.

2000hrs - In a beaver doing tours in vancouver harbour

3000hrs - In the same beaver somewhere between sechelt and nanaimo.

notice a trend? The next mark is only a month or two off and it'll either be in the dash.. or you guessed it ;)

Getting vectored into the ILS at CYOW, simulated single engine with a student after an fire training "shutdown". Was February in Ottawa and the janitrol decided to take the rest of the day off. I was never happier that my apartment building had a grimy electric petri dish of a sauna.

I'm very fortunate to be right where I hoped to be. Just passing 1000 hours 10 months into my first job and a year (mar28) from finishing school. Just upgraded from FO to Captain on the Navajo in Northern Ontario.

1000 hours: May 30, 2012. Somewhere between YTH and YWG in the left seat of a PA31.
2000 hours: June 4, 2015. Somewhere between a northern lodge and YWG still in the left seat of a PA31.
Doing other things now, probably won't get to 3000.

First 1000? In a plane, I'm pretty sure.

I wonder when it will be bragging about how few hours you have than how many? 15 years on and I haven't cracked 3k. I don't mind....
