New Job as UAL ramp agent!

Well today was the first official training day for my Full-Time job for United Airlines as a ramp agent! I’m based in San Francisco (KSFO) and will be working mainline.

For me to have this job means a lot to me as I’m hoping to be a pilot for this airline further down in my carrer. I’m so stoked to be able to work along side the engineering marvels!

Sadly, I was only able to grab only 2 ramp-side pictures because I was listening to what my instructor was teaching me, but nonetheless I had a great time living my dream!

Right? I’ll tell you this, those GE90’s sound so much different from 100ft away, outside, than 10ft away inside… both ways sound absolutely amazing.

Well then, hope to see you at KSFO soon. For some reason, my family and I are starting to use that airport more often.

It’s a hub that’s why. It also has one of the most scenic departures I’ve ever seen going over the Golden Gate

Congratulations on your new job! Being up-close and personal with those big jets has got to be fun. If your goal is to become a carrer pilot, then starting at entry-level is incredibly helpful.

I read Captain Sully’s book “Highest Duty”, and he talks about making a conscious effort to get to know his entire crew (including the flight attendants, rampers, fuelers, and everyone in between). He says he did this because it gave him a better appreciation for the entire operation. He was convinced doing that made him a better pilot and better cabin. The point being, learning a business from the ground up and inside out is so beneficial to anyone, and especially a pilot. Becuase of the work you’re doing, you’ll understand and work better with any crew you’re assigned to down the road.

Enjoy your new job!
