  Congratulations to Mike!

Wall Street has not yet heard of your making Captain today at American Trans
Air. Certainly this news will reverse the 1/2 point decline posted since
yesterday. Im notifying all of our friends on the IAC Internet to BUY now in
recognition of this momentous event. It has been a long time coming and you
certainly deserve the promotion.

For those who do not know him, Captain Gerdes flies the Boeing 727 for Amtran
out of Indianapolis. He will continue to be based in Indy after his upgrade
training. Mikes career in commercial aviation has not been without problems.
He started in the majors with Eastern, then to Pan Am then to Ultra Air. With
a track record like that its a wonder anyone would hire him. Fortunately
Amtran saw his true potential.

Mike and his wife Marilee live in Florence Kentucky. She is a private pilot
and employed by Delta Airlines.

Sandy and I are really excited and proud of Mikes success and want to share
our pleasure with all of you. If you wish to congratulate Mike you can
contact him at: JJGG63A at

Jerry and Sandy Gerdes
