The Future Of Aviation

A lady got on board today with six kids. And since she sat in the first row, we struck up a conversation, during which I found out that she was the wife of one of our newer pilots. She mentioned how gung-ho he'd been in training, but I really had no idea how gung-ho until we began our descent. The four of these kids that were not either asleep or too young to speak began to talk me through the landing.
"Ten thousand feet," Mom prompts.
"Flaps 8, twenty degrees," the kids chant.
"Below two hundred knots," Mom says.
"Flaps twelve," the kids say.
And so on, to my amazement. While she explained to me that her husband had trained so hard for the job that the kids had just picked it up, she said the word 'touchdown.' And one of her little girls said, "We can't do touchdown yet, Mommy. Gear down first."
I had great fun at that point imagining a scenario in which both pilots are incapacitated and I have to make that announcement about is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane, and a kid in a diaper toddles up to the cockpit, saying, "Relax, I got this."

Job interviews make everyone nervous, particularly when you havent done many before. Ive written many times about how to prepare, dressing for success, what you might be asked, what you should be asking and how to follow-up. If you are looking for a job where you can work with arts and graphic design, writing, formatting and graphics, Desktop publishers typically design and create the graphics that accompany text, convert photographs and illustrations into digital images, and manipulate the text and images to display information in an attractive and readable format. Body language is present from head to toe. Consider the following: My new temporary job was for the neurosurgery department at Stanford University Medical Center. Obviously the terminology was completely different and I had to start at the beginning. In those days I simply listened to a dictated letter on tape and typed it in. The form was a letter to the patient's primary care physician and any other physician that had seen the patient. These letters became part of the patient's medical records. Copies were sent to all relevant doctors as well to the Medical Records department.
