My phone rang at 4am this morning (waking me from my pleasant dreams). It was from an Aviation Recruiting company looking for EMB145 Capts to fly overseas. I told him thank you but I’m fat, dumb and happy in my current position. He responded they were offering “considerable compensation for this contract” and I could probably “name my price”. Again I said thank you but I’m good, I then asked where they got my number? He said I had inquired about contract flying back in Feb 2007 and they were “reviewing their old records as they simply cannot fill positions”.
That was over 10 years ago! Crazy!
