My New Chapter

I'm Baaaacccckkkk! And now I am officially a SkyWest Airlines Flight Attendant!

It has been a grueling 30 days of training and I SURVIVED! You would think that being a Flight Attendant for a major airline would have been advantageous for me when going to a regional carrier...and in some cases it was, but seriously...I got my butt kicked!

Training was intense, long and tiring. BUT, the payoff is so great. I finished my IOE (Initial Operating Experience-the airline world is rife with's their own language) which was another complete blog post in and of itself! (Seriously, it was the trip from hell...but I survived and I passed!) I feel ready to get back into the aviation world and anxious to really begin my career. All in all, I'm glad I embarked on this new journey. I have made some amazing new friends who will be in my life forever! THAT is a blessing!

So I head to PDX (Portland, OR) tomorrow, my new domicile. Hopefully my transfer to SLC will come through and my time in the beautiful Pacific Northwest will be short-lived. If not, then at least I am "stuck" in a beautiful state that is rich in culture, diversity and great seafood! Life is full of changes and even though there is a bit of trepidation on my part and maybe even a little fear of the unknown, I did survive NYC when I came out of Delta's training many years ago...

So please keep checking back. I will post more as I can. My schedule is guaranteed to be a bit crazy, but I have missed the blogging world and look forward to sharing some of my adventures with all of you.

Good luck!
