    The new airline thread

    Sounds like something PYB would do. Could he be back?

    The new airline thread

    Alaska's new pay scale. Not sure where the $86 came from? the first 3 years as FO are great. However, it is the last 3 years of pay that matter, not the first 3. This was all a scam by management to keep new FOs from leaving.

    U-2 Crash

  4. Nope, can't do both! Well, I could go to one then the other... Long story short I may not be able to work at BT&E due to Nepotism rules. Good, because if that is the case the Boeing check that goes in our account is getting bigger. My choice to do airlines now rests on the fact we want a bigger boat. I can be a QOL guy and make that happen. If I go stay at home dad I have to keep my 45 foot boat. Choices... Oh, and there was a 7 hour line for United at NGPA, thought the airlines would have hired all these pilots by now? PNW Aviation conference had over 600 people taking to Alaska trying to get 80-130 jobs. Pilots shortages suck.
  5. Retire in December. I will let you know.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    You can use you Post 911 GI Bill for any flight training you want as long as it is Part 141/142. I have yet to find a qualifying school for the Seaplane rating in the Northwest. Lost of schools you can get extra type ratings.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Well, when you put it that way and after reading some of the court cases on AOPA, it is easy to determine that the IRS hates pilots and free lunches. Back to just paying taxes. It is easier and less chance of going to Federal Pound Me In The Ass Prison (FPMITAP)

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Thanks for answering my question. That is the answer I got as well from the online tax help people. IRS won't answer the phone. Now one more since we have it going. Would you say getting an ATP when you are a military pilot "maintains or improves skills needed in your present work "? Now I will answer Champ's question. No, I will not be paying for any Airline or Air Line interview prep. I am not one of these scared little kids that that thinks the world outside the Air Force is this completely foreign culture that I have no chance of ever understanding. I know how to wear a suit (I have been doing it my whole life), I know how to present myself in a interview (I have done several, in the Air Force and out) I know how to Network (been doing that as well, helped me to stay at the same base for 11 years). I know how to read about an Airline or Air Line to see what is important to them. Also, Emerald Coast does not take the GI Bill.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Breaking my own rule and asking a tax question on the internet. If I use my Post 911 GI Bill to pay for a class and I am asked "Did your employer reimburse you for the cost?" Would the answer be no, since The GI Bill is basically my money?
