I begun to fly when I was 18 and I attained my PPL in 1991 in Rome, Italy. Then I left for Los Angeles and I flew there for two years. Then I’m back to Rome In 1993 and I got the CPL. In 1994 I flew with an Executive company flying for 1 years on Cessna Citation I and II. In 1995 I made the selections in Alitalia, and after having passed them I started my training, doing what in Alitalia is called a professional course for one years. After that I made the transition on DC-9 30 (retired a year later), and I went on MD80 / 82 which I flew for 11 years. I have refused the transition on the B747, MD11, B767, B777, and A330 because I’ve never liked the long haul. In the end I made the transition on the A320 family but I decided to retire at only 42. In the last times too many flights were made between national and international flights (Europe, Middle-East, and North Africa). Never at home, only airports and hotel. Pretty hard.
Anyway I had a nice carieer.
I wish you all the best for the future )
