I’ve decided to post my schedule in a different format this time because I think it gets the point across better. Hopefully enough people find this format to be more helpful by painting a better picture of the daily operation. I’ll do my best to explain how to read it. All times are LOCAL. All departure and arrival times are ACTUAL, not scheduled.
The first and last flight of the day will always include check in and check out times. For example, the flight on July 1 was the only flight that day. This is how it reads:
18:05 check in
SEA to PDX
20:27 check out
July 2 reads:
06:55 check in
PDX to PAE
PAE to LAS
And so on…
July was a huge milestone for me for multiple reasons. First, July 10 was my 6 month line check as captain. Passed with flying colors.
July 15 was my girlfriend’s (pay attention here) first flight aboard my plane.
She was on 2051 to SMF, where we spent time with family.
July 18-22 is a string of days off that’s broken up into standard off days and Golden Days (GL). Golden days are short notice vacation days. These days are important because my girlfriend (still paying attention?) and I flew a friend’s CE-172 into Friday Harbor for a 3-day kayaking trip around San Juan Island.
Our last night on the island we stayed aboard a sail boat in Friday Harbor where I (here it is) proposed!!!
The next morning we flew to Copalis Beach for engagement photos. Cool bit of info about Copalis…it is the only airport in the US with a sandy beach for a runway! So thankful to have discovered this spectacular place and actually pull off a fly in photo shoot.
