Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

What do you do in the case of a pilot who is an awesome pilot but constantly pushes weather (and promoted it), takes risks, screw the checklist we're 1 minute behind and is a "get er done" company man? The company loves him and he just happens to be the Chief pilot. Is he busting weather limits or ...

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

In my (limited experience) they make it through line indoc because they're not TOO far behind the curve for a new hire, but they end up not progressing beyond this point. It's one thing to have a fresh FO a little behind the aircraft, another to have an FO that's been flying the same aircraft for a...

Re: Airport Parking Ruled a Taxable Benefit

If I understand correctly, the politicians make the law, and the public servants interpret it and make more detailed rules about it.

Re: could of been the whiskey-could of been the beer

It is a fact that security thinks it's truly a feather in their cap to catch a drunk pilot and don't kid yourself, they are watching closely every time you pass through security. The whole post was to reinforce the fact and drinking on lay overs is a thing of the past. As they should. And anybody w...

Re: Frustrations of a Military ATC and the Big Leap

I appreciate the responses. Few things: 1. We do get issued licenses from TC, albeit military controller licenses, similarly to what our pilots receive compared to civilian licenses. We do go through the same structured process and my license does have IFR qual on it. Your license isn't from TC. It...

Re: Use of APU

I also heard if the PM taps his head and rubs his belly while tapping the outboard foot on the floor, it helps start the APU. Hilarious. Jokes aside, the procedure I posted works. Next time you have a finicky APU (if you fly a Q) try it and you'll see. Enjoy that conditioned air. Is that procedure ...

Re: New TC Cannabis rules

Most local cops do not follow the 28-day rule. In order to not follow a rule, you need to transgress a rule. In this case, you are saying that most cops transgress a rule: the 28-day rule. In order to transgress the 28-day rule, someone needs to smoke pot. So, you are implying, in how you worded you...

You mean fudge the requirements? Yeah, that normally goes very well... Viking could have bid on the tender. They decided not to likely because they could not meet the listed requirements.
If it weren’t for fudged requirements we would have gotten the C27.
They were just ignored.

This is a temporary operational restriction until the issue can be accurately quantified and, if necessary, fixed.

Re: More grist for the F18 replacement mill..

A “just in time” solution to a fighter force is not an option. Competency is built on decades of experience training and operating with partner nations. You can’t stand up a fighter force one year and expect it to be capable the next. You need to keep a cadre of capable pilots that are able to teach...

I have no issues flying a single engine fighter such as the F-35 and its modern engine in the North if it means I can have better odds of survivability in a combat setting.

There are no cheap options. I highly doubt the Super Hornet hourly costs, especially in the long term when parts becomes hard to find.
