I am not a true pilot yet. I only have my recreational license. I am going with the family.

edit. What I ment is. I am only to a certain level now. In about 2 years I will be a full pilot and will be flying for delta. I can only fly 3 seaters right now and don't have a instrument license so the smoke coming from the forest fires would force me to land.

woot. Today I chartered a sea plane and flew around a big ass lake. It is like 30 miles long. Its a great time. I haven't been in the area and it was great to get a chance to fly. Kinda old school plane but I will get pics up when I get home. Got to scan them.

it depends on what type of flight postitions I can get. start pay is pretty low. like 40g. then each year you are with the regional line you get a senior raise. Its around 8-10 thousnd a year. maxing at some around 80 g and other all the way up to 140. It takes about 3 years to school. Also to get a good postion though you need lots of flight hours to get a good postion.

when i was at lake george (amazing place, upstate ny) and i was fishing, we saw this airplane doing a nose dive straight at the lake, i got kinda scared, and got ready to start the boat if it was crashing, when it was near the woods of the adirondak mtns, it just pulled back up. I dont think it was legal, and i thought that the pilot was a retard for taking a risk like that

aww cmon. its legal to do what you want up there. I was riding up drifts today. You cut engine just as you hit the top of a mountain. you catch an updraft from the treeline. It can push you like a long way up. Then you go wieghtless and you throtle back down.
