Where have I been? Being very busy! I’ve been bad. I’ve started at least three posts, but never got around to finishing and posting them. Don’t worry, the ones I feel are important I will be posting! (What? Isn’t every one important!?)
Bigger news though. While my flying has definitely taken a backseat the past month or so, my aviation career is booming! I can’t wait to share more about it with you all! I’m excited to say I’m finally working at a Part 121 airline as a dispatcher!
I received the offer days before it was my one year anniversary of my “checkride” for my dispatcher certificate. When I got my certificate I made a list of airlines I’d love to work for based on company and where their headquarters is located. It came down to a list of four and this airline is one of them! I’m unbelievably excited and up for the new challenge.
They only gave me two weeks to move so it’s been a whirlwind. Jake and I hopped in our two-seat Miata with our cat, Propeller and drove for 4 days. How we all survived? I have no idea.
I’ve already been in class for 3 weeks now and experienced amazing adventures already! I’ll be sharing some of them soon, but for now I have to get back to studying! But here’s a preview of what is to come: flying a full motion simulator, riding in the cockpit of an Airbus during a flight, and going to the tower and out on the ramp.
