Two weeks

Just two weeks left on FMLA. I should go back to active status on January 4th...I think.

Bidding recently closed and I wasn't awarded a line. Not sure why. I emailed my chief pilot, waiting on a response.

Fairly certain one reason could be due to me needing my yearly training which is normally done in November.

I plan on stopping by the crew room and picking up all the lovely updates for my manuals. I am sure it will take 4-5 hours to update all my charts and manuals....I can't wait until Electronic Flight Bag come out....though it is likely several years away.

Having not flown in a while I am going to start going over flows and profiles again. Might fire up Flight Sim 2004 and the Wilco regional jet model to remember what everything looks like.

Very much so looking forward to having a paycheck....two months without is very tough.

Check out Hangar Flying

I was a guest on the Hangar Flying podcast this week. It's hosted by an Airline Captain and a Flight Attendant who is also a private pilot. It was  a lot of fun and I hope to be a guet again in the future.

Here is a link to the podcast http://upgrd.com/hangarflying/hf-4-flying-express.html
