|Just wanted to send out a humble thanks to everyone on avcanada, all the top posters and all the great people here posting and the not so great. Wanted to tell you all that I got my first job and not paying for my check and proud of it. I got a great gig as a low timer & I will be starting out at the bottom of the scale. I am happy for myself and proud of where I will work. I am ready to open my ears wide open, will shut up and listen and I will ask my questions when uncertain.
IMHO paying for a check is not the way to go and I discourage anyone to ever do it. Even after this gig and later on, I will strive to offer my services as a pilot to companies that deserve me and are willing to hire me for my experience and in exchange I will offer them loyalty, quality and a safe work ethich. I worked my back off to get that job, to get my training done, did my homework. I know it's an exhausted topic and it's been discussed over and over, but the minute we stop talking about paying for checks that's the minute new students are gonna start accepting it.
My adventure is just about to start and I just can't wait.
Cheers to you all... and long live aviation.
