My Airline Pilot is MISSING

So, I am here at Minneapolis International Airport flying off to Rhinelander, WI where I am heading to visit my 4 year old nephew before a speaking engagement tomorrow. My flight is 3:20 pm and as I am sitting here waiting patiently to board my plane for the hour long flight I hear, “Jason Kubicek . . . Please contact Pinnacle Airlines for Flight.” I am thinking to myself, “I know Jason.”

Many of you know that I own my own airplane and Jason was my pilot that I trained. Rather, he trained me in my plane but we flew all over the country. I love this kid. He got enough hours to fly commercial and left for a career goal of his.

How funny is that that I am waiting for my plane and come to find out that Jason is flying the plane. I immediately call him thinking he’s in the airport and wanted to say hi. So, I call and he answers. Excited he says, “Where are you?” I respond, “Where are you?” He says he’s home watching tv enjoying a day off. “Dude”, I said, “I am at the airport and they are calling your name. You are flying my place and you are not here.” He says, “Im 90 minutes away.” So now I have to wait 90 minutes so my pilot can get his ass off the couch, stop eating bon bon’s, get dressed, focused, and fly me to Rhinelander, WI so I can visit my nephew.

This was a funny moment . . .

So, I go to the lady at the counter and ask her, “Are you waiting for Jason Kubicek to fly this plane?” She responded, “Yes”. I said, “He’s 90 minutes away eating bon bons and watching tv on his couch. She’s like, “Who the hell are you?”

I’m just another passenger that knows people . . .
