So, it’s official. I’ve been accepted into the flight academy for Ixion Defense Systems. I’ve been applying for flight jobs left and right but having no flight experience besides a few unofficial and undocumented hours in a flight simulator, nobody has spent even a second to even look at my resume.
Today I received a secure communication from IXDS indicating that they have accepted my job application. However the application did not give me a date of employment or training start. I’m still very excited.
There is so much to do, so much to get started on. I think I’ll start immediately. I’ve been up all night researching topics such as personal fitness training, IXDS – their history, current contracts and their fleet – and general flight instruction. I’ve learned more this evening about such matters than I have my entire life.
Tomorrow I start on my new exercise regime to get me in shape for potentially dire situations where physical fitness could mean the difference between life or death. Plus, a fighter pilot has to look good in and out of uniform. At the very least, it’ll help keep my body and mind busy while I wait for a second communication from IXDS indicating when my training is to begin.
