Wind up or not, this guy is scary even if he is a costa dweller...something about his posts just don't add up.

I've already alerted a guy I know in HR who will pass his IP and history to the relevant departments...even they know something is rotten in DK.

It looks like Emirates is very interested in me. I logged onto Facebook this morning and a sponsored posting appeared encouraging me to apply at Emirates for a pilot position. Things are looking good, I think!

Are you saying that because usually Emirates doesn't hire with only corporate experience?

I hope not to meet you once I'm flying the line. One bad apple CAN spoil the bunch, but I'm going to choose not to let it.

"It's" just a silly brat flying his Microsoft 747 wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses and pretending to be a pilot. Our profession is funny....I never seen before a wacky pretending to be a doctor, nor lawyer....

Thank you OurKing and Savior, so subtle but brilliant.

Haven't had so many laughs for ages.

Pretending to be a doctor:
Police: Man, 18, arrested for pretending to be doctor - CNN.com

Pretending to be a lawyer:
Law Firm Partner Charged After Pretending To Be A Lawyer For A Decade | Above the Law

Me? I'm an FAA rated ATP. Hoping to be GCAA rated A380 or B777 before long.

If your real your doing a great job of making yourself look like a fool or a troll.

If your fake your giving me and the rest of the EK guys a great laugh, keep it up

How do you know a chief pilot is sitting at the bar....he'll tell you!

No one starts a post "I am a chief pilot"
You'll see how 'interested' EK is in you when you're doing your sim check and they say turn left and you turn right.

Why would I turn the wrong way?

If you'd recommend doing so, due to accents or multiple instructions simultaneously, I'll wear a kneeboard and write down all my instructions.

Do most guys at Emirates wear a kneeboard in the cockpit to write down instructions?

What a silly question! Of course we do. Kneeboard, helmet and oxygen mask.

The helmet and mask are company provided, or will I need my own? If I need to provide my own, is there any certain fitting that I need to tap into the aircrafts oxygen system? Or, do I need my own oxygen bottle too?

OurKing,

Helmet is provided by the company - But you will have to think of a catchy callsign before you come. Unfortunately 'Maverick' and 'Iceman' are already taken.
