I know Pat!! He was Chief Pilot one time? Wow. Had no idea. He, unfortunately, along with a lot of others, we're laid off this year, including me. I really don't forsee Colemill surviving much longer, But we'll see. They've made it through tough times before.
The company I worked for was Colemill Enterprises over at M88. They've been in business since 1944, but, they experienced some cut backs back in Feb, 2009. They we're the last hit, compared to all the other Nashville based charter operators.
I've never flown in an Aztec before. I used to fly a Cessna 414 out of Tune for Dale Gish. At Colemill, I flew the PA31 as well, I enjoyed it, amassing around 150 hours in it.
I understand your feeling regarding not flying enough. It's been a while for me.

I hope you remember me. I am a friend of Calvin Gann (don't hold against me). We met during one of the Gospel Music Events at The Civic Center in Panama CIty a few years ago. We talked about our old 2 inch recorders and how we loved them. I hope all is well with You as We are doing fine here in PC. Still got the Studio but we added a 9 ft Baldwin since we've seen each other. The Neve is still working great and sounding even better. Calvin has His studio up and running after the hurricane washed him out. Anyway, It's Good to see you here and wish you the best.
