That will be great. 

 

Certainly sounds like you had some great fun in your career. "take me to 20000 ft and cut me loose!" So Funny!

Hi Pete, that was an hour well spent mate! I wholeheartedly agree with all the points you guys covered — a lot of them translate well over to the civilian side of aviation. I learned more in the coffee shop hanging with the boys - listening to their stories, experiences and screw-ups about flying floats… than I ever did in the briefing room… and it ALL saved my bacon… I still fly the king of STOL: the DHC-6 on whipline 13000 floats (seasonally next to my airline job) in some of the most demanding sea conditions in the world and when I first signed on - I was paying attention to the details of those who had been there before and were more experienced then me… I learned valuable lessons early on in the career that kept me safe, and alive … I didn’t have to go out and make the same mistakes or errors as them… and to think it only cost me a cup of coffee sometimes… I  just went out and filled my own experience bucket up and lived long enough to pass it all down to the junior team members… the sad thing I notice with the newest team members is the addiction to the cell phones… and when I need to chirp up and say something it’s not well received - and normally ends up with me being ghosted and their faces glued to a screen with ear pods in… 

I can only do so much… 

But, a UPRT course sounds like something I would enjoy and learn from… if and when I make it over to the US, I’ll let you know!

Cheers mate, thanks for sharing your experiences! Awesome content!!
