Thats pretty cool. I am working on getting my private, then instrument etc.... I am going to be heading to the Air Force Academy so I am looking to fly either C-17s or KC-135s and then eventually work for an airline. What is the best way to get involved for getting hired at an airline?

Did someone really say Comair was a top carrier???

DL in the pre western era (70's and early 80's) was a class act, aviation professionals that started at entry level positions and worked their way up. That said;

Comair was a good commuter carrier until DL took control. Most of the management that DL sent over to run Comair were rewarded for their political tricks at DL with positions at Comair. They were no longer effective at DL as their coworkers did not trust them, they burnt too many bridges.

I feel for the long time Comair folks, they were raped and pillaged by their new parent company DL.

As far as top carrier, the majors fall short of any kudos’s. They are ranked next to Greyhound!

I am not trying to insult anyone that works for any airline (major or commuter) or FAA for that matter.

Having cut my teeth on DC8-51's, I remember the good old days and am saddened by what these great carriers have done to themselves.
