Dylan Cunha aka gear up or Sir Lancelot to put it kindly.

Nightfighter First Officer B732 Bidair Cargo, Arsenal fan, and I've been told "be careful the Martians are coming :mad:

If I could afford it, I'd fly aerobatics all day everyday but I love my job nonetheless :research: :fantastic:

Hey Dylan, you and Moertoe must make a formidable team. A nutty team, but formidable I'm sure. Welcome on board :friends:

Welcome to the "other" forum - you're gonna love it here. All mature adults, with a really great sense of humour, no chips on our shoulders, and very few pi$$ing contests.......... Here we all rag each other and don't take things personally - well, except for 87 J, and he's making plans to get rid of that noisy night raider that constantly interrupts his sleep.......... :whip:

Hmmmm :thinking: - with a profile name like "gear up" there has got to be a story attached to it....... C'mon, share the background!! :fantastic:

Flying classics and being an Arsenal fan are both great features in my book :handshake:

Thank you all, awesome to be part of like minded aviation nuts.

The name gear up comes from nothing more than "positive rate, gear up" and a secondary meaning, as in, gear up, I don't have time for slack asses :outtahere:

Whoa there, cowboy - sometimes a slack butt can be very handy. :deadhorse:
I, personally, have had dealings with tight-asses, and let me tell you, they're no fun either....... :wacko:

Seriously, though - welcome to the party, may your number of landings always equal your number of take-off's, and may the name you chose never become a self-fulfilling prophesy...... :welcome:
