Observation rides…

June 24th, 2005 · No Comments

This morning I left the house at about 5:45am to head over to Burbank Airport. With only two more observation rides required before I start OE, I figured I’d make them as painless as possible. I chose a very short round-trip up to San Jose, CA and back.

About 15 minutes prior to departure, the captain of the BUR-SJC flight snatched me out of the terminal and threw me into the First Officers seat, saying “Get to work!” The second I sat down in that seat, I vapor-locked. I couldn’t remember where to start. I managed to unscrew myself, but it took me a few minutes. I’ve got some more work to do before I jump in the seat on Monday!

On the way back from San Jose, I got a chance to observe one of my classmates (Ooohrah 2005-12!) on his second leg of his first OE trip. I snapped this photograph of him as he was running a checklist for his training captain. Gotta love the fisheye!!

On Monday, that’ll be ME sitting in the right seat of that big, bad, BOEING.

A little side note: Thank you BLOGSPOT for giving me the ability to simply upload photos from my computer!! I don’t know how long that’s been there, but it wasn’t there last time I looked.
