    How long have you been flying Jeff? I’ve got a good friend who’s a KC-135 pilot in the AFRC who also flys American (I think) out of Chicago. He’s taken me under his wing as I work to try and get a commission into the AFRC or the ANG to become a pilot. I’m 16.7 hours into my private pilot’s license and should be done with my PPL by the end of February!

    Anyways, enough of my rambling 🙂 We’re happy to have you on Livefyre. Let me know if you ever need anything, we’d be more than happy to help in any way that we can!

    @JMattHicks Started flying after graduating from Auburn (well, I had started flying lessons in my teen years, but only a few hours) in 1981 when I entered the Air Force. A little over seven years in the USAF, then hired by Delta (I mean ACME!) in 1988. So, I guess about 30 years!

    Good luck with your flight training and getting into the Reserves/Guard. If I had known about that option, that’s what I would have done myself. I could have been flying for the “majors” 3 years earlier, and could be a B-777 captain with decent seniority! Hindsight…

    Thanks for the welcome. I heard about Livefyre from my friend Cliff Ravenscraft, the “Podcast Answerman.” If you have any questions about flying, send me some feedback.

    @captjeff That’s awesome Jeff! Did you fly heavies in the Air Force as well? I’ve been looking at everything from the A-10 to the KC-135. While I definitely have my preferences, at the end of the day I just want to be in the air.

    And thanks for the good luck wishes! I’ve heard the same from other folks as well, and Lord willin’ I’ll find my way into a unit somewhere flying something!

    And @cliffravenscraft gspn is a good guy, we like him a lot of here at Livefyre!

    And questions, boy do I ever 🙂 Let me organize my thoughts and get back to ya, I’d love to get your wisdom on a wide range of things!

  5. @JMattHicks@captjeff Thanks for the shout out guys. I LOVE LIVEFYRE!!!!!
