captain aloha

a bit of shameless self promotion – on monday, september 24, 2012, i was awarded my 4-bars which signifies the rank of Captain, the highest flight officer position available at my company, Cathay Pacific Airways. our director of flight operations, Captain Richard Hall, presented the 4-bars to me in Cathay City (pictured above) and i must say it’s a great relief to finally have finished my “Command Course” on the Boeing 777.  a true ‘rite of passage’ at my company, the Cathay Pacific Command Course is one of the most intense and comprehensive command training programs in the airline industry.  after several months of nonstop training, it is truly a relief to have it all relegated to history.  thanks to all my friends and family members who supported me throughout this monumental point in my career. a salute to my trainers who also guided me through the ropes and made several training flights with me to get me polished and up to the level required of Boeing 777 commander.

i hope to fly all of you someday aboard a Cathay Pacific flight – and to my colleagues who are currently undergoing their command courses, and to those who are about to start – i wish you all the best. blue skies always and aloha! – jeremy
