    You guys are so mean. I think it is a very attainable and smart plan. If fact I am doing the same thin and I am well on my way as of yesterday. I was just promoted to assistant manager at mcdonalds. Since I don't have a pile of money like John, I will continue to fly msfs and now I can put back two dollars per hour towards my Lear and training.

    Actually I am a little confused. John said he had all cash, but later was going to take a loan and then charge 5k per cross country and put half of that amount towards the loan. He should consider consulting for the charter companies, I am guessing they would love margins like that.

    Fortunately like john I am of superior intellect and have a plan. I am going to apply for the managers position and keep the assistant managers position. I will work about 50 hours per day and once I am good at it, I will do the same thing at three other restaurants. (Don't worry, I tried this on a video game and it was easy).

    I hope all the mean people on here flip upside down in John and my wake turbulence.

    Thank you.

    Well for a second there I thought you were someone of the same level as myself but these comments would seem to indicate that you're more at the level of some of these other people around here with not enough money. Just look at that dreadful thread about sacrifices people have made to fly. They are mostly lonely men working too hard and driving crappy cars to afford to fly an old piece of junk. Depressing! It is good to aspire to great things and please feel free to use me as a role model but at the same time it is important to remember what you are and to know your place. Which in your case is a fast food service worker. You need to temper your goals to that reality.


    Sadly I'm not so sure this is true.

    Not a bad plan. Testing it out in a sim is also a smart move. But your choice of industry is poor. There is only so much you can do in the fast food industry.

    I wish them no ill. This is something I have had to deal with my entire life. Jealous individuals who need to try to put me down. Don't let this eat you up. They want what I have. No necessarily what you have (which is not much admittedly). Again this is about me, less so about you. i don't mind giving some of the limelight to you though. You're welcome.

    John,

    Thanks for the kind words. I will try to learn through your posts and emulate you as much as possible.

    I do want to follow in your footsteps, can you post your logbook so I know the path you have started down.

    If Mr Galt is half as wise as he appears, he'll just skip log books, medicals, and licensing altogether and just pay cash for a Lear 2x and just keep putting fuel in it and flying it until it just won't fly anymore. MSFS has plenty of plug ins for him to learn to game the IFR system as well. Just sound like you know what you're talking about with your call ups and no one will question if you have a ticket.

    I don't have a "logbook" per se but having been flying at the expert level for several thousand hours so far I'm pretty sure.

    Pete, er I mean John,

    Maybe I shouldn't follow your lead. I can promise you that if I had received training at Simcom, it would be in my log book. It would count towards your ppl and insurance requirements.

    J - in a dozen years teaching 30 and 40 series LearJet for the world's largest pilot and maintenance training operation I have had exactly one client who owned the airplane... along with the family owned chemical company that the airplane supported. Oh yeah, and one uber rich guy (think NFL team owner) whose family owned the jet. We're i in your shoes I'd do what it takes to get a commercial and multi while making friends with every chief pilot or operator that you can find flying the equipment and trying to work for them; that might get you the training and type rating that you'd need from CAE, FSI or one of the other training corporations... After that, who knows? Good luck!

    Gotta say, this one of the dumbest threads I have seen in a long time. Jets are expensive to operate let alone buy. If you have enough money to afford one, you could seek advice from professionals not a free website. (no offense to anyone here).

    At least the topic is aviation. :rolleyes:

    How DARE you talk to me like that? :mad: :no:

    Do you know who you are talking to? You have no idea do you? If you did you would be on your knees begging for forgiveness.


    So you advise me to not take your advice? And you are calling ME dumb?

    WTF dude! :dunno:

    Yes, on behalf of POA I would like to state for the record that we DO take offense to this.

    Now kindly bugger off and take your worthless opinions elsewhere.

    :mad:

    Kevin (I know you are reading this ;) ),



    "The meek shall inherit the earth".

    I certainly hope not. No offense to you and some of the other (w)meek individuals who are fearful and need to hide. What has happened to our society? When did it become acceptable for all these girly men to live out openly in plain sight and for their unmanly conduct to be acceptable?

    Also since when is it acceptable to openly scoff at the dreams of someone who wants to be a Lear jet owner and operator and even mechanic?

    Jealousy is an ugly thing.

    :no:

    I am within a week of owning something exciting... Not a Lear I was unable to find an example that stood up to my substantial standards. Something really special. I will keep it to myself for now because I have seen what happens when inadequate girly men hiding behind their keyboards get confronted with talent and pure masculinity such as myself.

    They both look scared. I'd like to save them from this dangerous situation they seem to have found themselves in.

    He is afraid of her (despite his claims that he hopes the meek don't inherit the Earth he went for the meek looking one).

    I don't know how to respond to that other than to comment that this is a nice looking Saratoga.

    Red blooded manly men such as myself prefer to not go for the dominating masculine type woman. To each their own and if that is what you prefer then that is your right.
