...who still doesn't know it all. But as a former simulator and ground instructor for Gulfstream aircraft at Flight Safety, I have more training than the average pilot receives in a lifetime.

It's not the same everywhere. So, if you are going somewhere far away, maybe I already know the local handshake. And if you already do, you can be sure that I'll be right there backing you up while you haggle with the locals.

I understand English in numerous dialects, including ICAO which I speak fluently and properly so as not to embarrass my associates in the cockpit.

When not globetrotting, a trip to Chicago, Dallas or anywhere else here in the homeland is fine by me — Where ever you are destined, it is the most important and interesting place in the world to me.

No accidents no incidents. No Accidents, Incidents. Never even a traffic ticket!

Correction—I received my first traffic ticket after 40 years on the road. Darn. Otherwise I have never scratched, dented or damaged anything with wheels or wings. And I intend to keep it that way.

Three words to live by in this business although maybe not 80% of the job. But you can count on me to be there on time.

Cockpit Etiquette

There's nothing worse than someone who won't put the clipboard back where YOU left it. I understand these unmentionables and will mind my manners.
