The most beautiful American Airliner













“Allo, my name is L. from ..., may I speak to ...... .....?”,
“Speaking”,
“We’re please to let you know you have been successful in our selection process”.
The very friendly lady then told me I will be starting the Type Rating course on the Boeing 737NG this automn.
I have dreamed of such a call for years, the Boeing 737NG has always fascinated me, and this is just about to become real.

Thank you all of you who have showed your support.

I took the assessment recently and as any selection process, most didn't pass. I feel sorry for them, but I guess this is all part of the game.
I prepared a lot for it, spent hours and hours going through the entire ATPL books, I prepared for the simulator assessment and I think it all worked out pretty well on the D-day as I have never flown such a great flight before and I did my best CRM (surely the flights on the Kingair did help a lot on this side of things).

Looking forward to flying the most beautiful American airliner,

Airborne life continues...

WOW, congratulations!

I'm speechless and kinda jealos right now. I'll need another six months or so to finish up my fATPL (just took the first eight exams at Gatwick in June).
Again, Congrats!! What a great day for you.
Cheers,

Hi!
I have been following your blog for years! I wish you all the best and I am actually really happy for you!
Good on you!
If I ever happen to fly this carrier (if it is the one shown on the picture), I will pay attention to the pilot's names.. :)

Bravo!!! Si j'ai bien compris, c'est bon, tu as passe l'ultime épreuve pour être pilote de ligne. Tu dois nager dans le bonheur..
Et comme le dit Erwan, continue ton blog pour nous motiver, nous, qui sommes encore très, très loin de ce moment.

PS: c'est quelle compagnie?
