Larry (II) Flying High

On February 18th I graduated from Southwest Airlines ground school and last Tuesday I flew my first flight in the 737 (with passengers in the back no less…) from Baltimore to Phoenix.  I went on to fly 12 more flights this week with a check pilot and yesterday I was officially designated a Southwest Airlines Pilot.  My week included brief (20 min) stops in Phoenix, Seattle, Spokane, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale, and Orlando.  I also spent overnights in Salt Lake City, Boise (ID), and Manchester (NH).  It was a fun, busy week and I learned a lot about the airplane and the airline business.  My next trip starts on Thursday as I visit Baltimore, Phoenix, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Islip, and Orlando.

I hope to see some family and friends on one of my flights very soon!!!  (snack packs and drink tickets for everyone!!!…)  My complete schedule is available on request.  Southwest is an amazing company to work for and to fly with.  I’m not just saying that because they sign my paycheck either…  I can’t believe how fortunate I’ve been in the last year.  Thank you all for your encouragement and support!! 

Congratulations Larry!

    Make sure you let us know if you have any significant time in Seattle. We’d love to see you and catch a meal with you. Maybe next time we’ll avoid the throwing up part! :)

    We gave Larry flying lessons for Christmas when he was 15 years old. Who knew they would lead to this! I’m so proud I can’t stand it. Larry’s Dad is rubbing his hands with glee. He can now fly around the country for free – with the Dad pass!! You make us proud Larry, as usual. Congratulations. Love, Mom
