Re: Trying to help family locate someone in Canada

A google search says he flew TBMs for Norfolk Aerial Spraying in 76-77 if that helps to jog anyone's memories.

Re: Corporate vs Airlines

My corporate bias may be showing, but it is a curious trend that when people ask questions about corporate flying the discussion is pretty civil. Yet, when airline talk emerges a complete free-for-all, WWE style royal rumble breaks out with one or two characters being smashed over the head with a ch...

I guess i can't relate to your world. I have owned a successful business and had jobs, of course, but never one with any security whatsoever. My aviation career has been effectively one day at a time. Yours seems better.
It's ok I go on business forums and tell people to fire everybody. :D

Re: Airman vs. Airperson Discussion/Poll

If your company went from a standard operating procedure of calling "positive rate" to calling "positive climb" would your internal circuits overload too? Changes in terminology are actually far less threatening to your well being than you may think. Nothing about you or what you are is under attack...

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

Discuss the situation with a chief pilot. I'm sure you aren't the only one who's raised issue. The chief pilot can put them back into line indoc, training, any number of options.
