Thanks for your responses. From a third party perspective, I am glad that you aviators get to enjoy the little perks of your job like that and I thought it was cool to see that guy fly in and his family greet him at the jet.
Ha! That's great! For some reason I found this conversation really funny.JO Pilot:"Hey Skipper, there is an airshow at X airport just by my hometown, I need the hours and it's a secure field. I'll even stay the night at my mom's house, so I won't need any TAD $$ and it would get a good writeup in the local paper."
CO: "Don't do anything stupid, and bring my jet back on time in one piece. Make sure your momma sends a copy of the paper, and don't curse in front of the youngsters."
Thank you for the warning. Also, what is the penalty box and why should I fear it?statesman said:Joking or no... there are people on this board who dont find the 'jet question' funny in the least bit. There have been guys who have been AW members a lot longer than you get put in the penalty box for making this joke.
Full disclosure, I don't give a rats ass. Just giving you fair warning.
