Just curious if any pilots make the commute to Louisville or Ontario.
I go to Ontario
I was listening to a podcast a while back and they were interviewing a Ups pilot. I found it interesting as a driver to hear the daily routine of a pilot for this company.
Trust me it’s nothing short of amusing. Something different everyday. And yea from Phoenix
What do you fly?
Right I’m flying an airbusA300
Nice! I started off at the Phx gateway 21 years ago. We had a 747 browntail come in one morning due to the regular DC-8 being red tagged for a maintenance issue. After seeing the 747 I was hooked on aviation.
Me too man ! I started off maybe about 18 or 17 years ago. But what got me hooked on was when I saw the 767 that thing was a beauty and it kinda just went on from there
I think we got a 767 with the Olympic livery daily flight from Louisville for a long period of time.
You started off as a package handler?
If he did he had very wealthy parents.
Getting an ATP isn't cheap.
Yea you sure know a lot about me. I busted my ass to get to where I’m at. I had no handouts
And yes I started off as package handler, did clerk, ran internationals, and eventually started running the next day air route to the airport every night
Were you out of Tempe?
No I was out of Bisbee
Wow. Can’t see much of an operation in bisbee az. That’s an impressive path to becoming a pilot at Ups.
