Been quiet lately

Sorry for not updating my blog lately. I have not been feeling very social while my job was in a state of flux... However all seems to have settled down for now and I am preparing to head off to work FINALLY on Tuesday next week. For those that don't know, I was hired by an airline operating in western Alaska to fly a Cessna Caravan. Unfortunately, one of their Caravans was involved in a little incident last week and will be down for repairs for several months. Hence the stress over my position... Fortunately they have offered to put me to work flying a Cessna 207 (known in these parts as the "sled") and probably a Piper Navajo as well. I am looking forward to being a "Sled Driver" again, as I think that its a wonderful plane. Hopefully soon I will be flying my faithful old friend, the Chieftain, and after that revisit that sweetest flying of Cessna's, The Caravan. All three of these planes have treated and served me well in the past, so heres to many uneventful hours to come... I'll post some pictures and stories about my new job when I get there. That is, if the internet works good enough out there in Bethel... If not, I'll be back home in the middle of November and promise an update then.

Glad to hear things are settling down for you and look forward to reading about your new job experiences in Bethel. It probably won't be long before you go from the "Sled" to the Navajo and before you know it you'll be back in the Caravan. Keep in touch with us so we know how you're doing. Be safe and fly safe!!!
