My first name is René. I live in Southern California and I am a Seattle based Captain for Horizon Airlines. I fly the Embraer 175. Having recently completed my upgrade to captain I was previously a Q400 first officer. I moved from the right seat of the Q to left seat of the E175. Its been a learning curve for sure. I started blogging about my journey as a new captain. Http:// I often get mistaken for the flight attendant even in full pilot uniform. Mostly it entertains me. That was the inspiration to start writing about my journey.
