When you stick your nose in the exhaust and take a wiff of kerosene before you walk out the door in the morning for work.

When you look at a 2500.00 radial gas engine for a prop plane and say - oh, that's cheap! [8D]

When you only own one prop plane and its made of foam. Worse yet you only fly it at sunset because its too dark to fly your turbines.

...when You fly 3 jet flights at a small airfield and on each flight have to ask over the radio the 100 % traffic to tell You whether they are on a landing of a touch-and go.
And when on a touch-and-go, make room for them in holding the jet in circles elsewhere.
TP.

When you justify to your wife the cost of your new jet by buying her a Diamond Ring.

When you can break every RCU posting rule and your post isn't edited or removed.

And, you tell everyone how worthless their idea, product, or technique is compared to yours.

When you climb into the pilots seat and say, self you don't want to be here and that you are tired of making rich axxholes happy ! You check your log book and find that you have nearly 6,000 of jet time alone, never mind the other thousands of hours in recip and other turbine equipment. That is when you really know that you are a ready to retire " Jet Pilot ".

When you occasionally run completely out of home heating oil in the dead of winter ...... but never ever ever let your kero supply fall below 25 gallons.

I don't know about all the other idiots who call themselves "jet pilots", but I knew I was one just after my first turbine powered model took off and the wind carried the smell of jet exhaust back to my nostrils as my airplane climbed away faster than any ducted fan I had ever flown.
I was hooked!
