    congrats Joe, any plans for moving up to heavy metal or even overseas? I hear the Japanese carriers are busy scouting for new talent for their fleets!

        Don't sweat the landings. Anything on the centerline and in the touchdown zone is a good landing as long as you can use the airplane again when you reach the level you're at. Smoothness doesn't count for much. It's all about where you put the airplane.

        That 700 is a bitch to make a smooth one anyway.

          Yeah, I'm not worried. They've all been on centerline, on speed, and in the touchdown zone. My first one was actually in OMA with 20kt winds gusting to 30 but thankfully straight down the pipe. That one wasn't too bad. My landing in ATL was a little on the firm side, but my landing in Dayton was pretty damn awesome. I'll get it, its just a matter of practice. That sim is great, but it doesn't replicate landings well at all.

          How's your new gig treating you? Missing the dash yet?

            Sounds like you've got the hang of it man.

            Yeah, I miss the Dash, and especially the people I flew with there. I knew I would when I left.

            This new job more than makes up for it though. Did my fam flight the other day. Just plain awesome airplane to fly. I'm probably going on my first tour tomorrow. If not then, it'll be within a week. Excellent job so far. Camera should be getting home from the shop soon, so I'll get some more pics.

              Took me a good six months until I could grease it consistently and I'm in the -200 which is a lot easier to land than the -700.
