Re: FedEx quietly begin single-pilot tests - ATR 42

Oh boy, you two are out of touch with reality. Let's chat in 20 years. Actually I'm just quoting NASA PhD's. Perhaps you're more knowledgeable than them, but I kinda doubt that. "Let's chat in 20 years" is a lame cop-out, trying to sound wise predicting that things will be different somet...

Re: FedEx quietly begin single-pilot tests - ATR 42

Hi Rockie, actually they do keep stats on this! :D And you are correct. Most accidents have the pilot as a contributing factor. Pilots are the weakest link. They fail on a rate at least equal to any other component. Either they fail to respond appropriately to a situation, make decisions that get th...

Re: FedEx quietly begin single-pilot tests - ATR 42

What's coming? A plane that can be flown remotely?

Pretty sure that's already been done for some time now.

Not just with one pilot, but with NO pilots on board.

Can you IMAGINE?! :lol:

Re: Favorite Aviation Movie?

Wouldn't say it's my favourite, but try "Tmavomodrý svět" (Dark Blue World).

A better version of "Pearl Harbor". Czech fighter pilots who formed their own squadron within the RAF after Czechoslovakia was betrayed by the Munich Accord in 1938.

Re: CANADA TO LIFT BAN ON BOEING 737 MAX ON JAN. 20

Another media induced panic that has been resolved. Cost boeing billions, and the lawyers got rich. Except for a minor technical software correction, there was no real problem with the airplane in the first place. What a world, one guy screws up a procedure, big company loses billions, and the bott...

Re: TC medical fees

If the price of a pilot medical isn’t in the basket of products used to calculate an inflation rate, then increasing the price of a medical has no effect on inflation; it cannot therefore play any part in controlling inflation. You're confusing measuring inflation with actual inflationary causes. I...

Re: TC medical fees

Inflation, like all economics, is highly subjective - definitely not science. The concept of "substitution" used in calculating the CPI is a prime example. I actually don't have a problem with price increases in line with inflation. Agree with ahramin that it's silly to get upset about. Th...
