Re: Boeing Max.

With all respect to all, yer all missing the point. And the point is.....you still need to know how to fly a plane. These machines are now so dummy proof that pretty much any driver can operate them. Good, bad, does not matter, if you have a quarter of a brain of the average human, you can't get hur...

Re: Becoming a pilot with a DUI

We're talking dui, not major aggravated assault.

There is a difference. Dui is a bad mistake, but does not carry criminal intent with a desire to inflict harm.

You need to see the difference. Putting a dui into the same boat as a violent person is just plain wrong.

Re: Airport Parking Ruled a Taxable Benefit

The rules are made by politicians, and implemented by public servants. That’s a really good example of deflecting the issue: criticizing public servants as privileged and overpaid, whcich, even if true, is irrelevant to whether parking should be a taxable benefit. It’s not a personal thing, and it ...

Re: Airport Parking Ruled a Taxable Benefit

My vote....... Disgusting indeed. These rules are made by public servants with, if not fantastic, but nevertheless very high salaries with hugely generous expense accounts. Said expense accounts equal a 40 hour minumum salary job. In a job that requires minimum effort. And then they decide to screw ...

Re: Why is multi time so important to the airlines?

Old thinking is what it is. There are jurisdictions around the world that hire zero time people, train them, and stick them into 777's in the right seat. Multiengine time is nice but not really neccessary. You will find out how a V1 cut (engine failure right after takeoff) feels like on your first f...

No conflicting opinion here. I agree.

Trouble is, the system is so $#&&ed up that it takes a rocket surgeon (sarcasm is intentional) to even track down the person who can actually issue you that piece of paper.

Yes, it is a dumb system. The whole radio licence thing is a long forgotten thing that nobody in the "government" even knows about.

They're both equal. And different. You will not be considered any better or worse regardless of your choice. So it really depends on what you find more attractive.
