Hey all,

I know I have not stayed very involved with the boards lately, although I have tried to stay active flying, especially around the time that Northwest was closing and trying to get as many flights out as possible.

My last flight was KLM682 CYVR-EHAM, flown on 04/16/2010 on the PMDG MD-11. I would have flown more this month, but things have been hectic with recurrent training and getting a new supervisor for the midnight shift at the charter airline...

I know this pales in comparison to all of you, but in my almost five years here, I have flown 503 hours, 33 minutes. For a total of 148 flights, visiting only 88 of SimAirline.net's destinations (I like to stay with the larger aircraft and airports).

SimAirline.net got me started on a career path way back in my first year in college by getting the Aviation bug in my system and carrying me semester after semester to where I am today as a flight follower at a charter airline. I'm not sure I would have attempted the Aviation Management program if I had not come across this great community, and would have probably stayed studying International Relations and Political Science.

It's been a privilege flying with all of you, and Aaron, it was especially a privilege working with you on opening Pan American Virtual - I'll never forget that experience - I only wish life had not gotten in the way and I was forced to give that up.

I hope to see you all in the virtual skies for years to come.

Thanks Ali,

Don't think I mentioned it on your thread, but congrats with the new airline. I'm not sure how much flying around the Middle East I'll be doing, but I'll definatly keep an eye out for Nile Air :).
