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

MEDIA ! SHAME TC
In the public world that may get results.

But T.C. is a different animal altogether and they have zero accountability...zero.

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

So, they are not allowed to tell the truth or say anything negative about a past employee ? Sure you are free to say whatever you want to, however there is always the danger of being sued for slander if you say something negative. If the former employer does say positive things that is a safe way o...

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

I never called references but always called past employers when was hiring someone.
Same here, it is sometimes what the former employer does not say that tells the true story.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines: 'No survivors' on crashed Boeing 737 max

This is not "Herd mentality". It is Boeing and the FAA fixing the F#%kups of rushing the airplane to market with no oversight or critical thinking.
The airplane is unstable because of its design.

It will be interesting to see how their fix turns out.

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

. If the company is so small that one guy wears all these hats and nothing gets done I would suggest leave. It would likely be better for your career. If this guy is a bad as you say all the captains should make it clear that they are united in this.
That is the bottom line in this discussion.

The challenge is for you to understand how they learn and adjust how you teach so they do learn... Things sure have changed since I retired.

First - talk to him about your concerns and if no joy, How stupid of me not to have thought of that.

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

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.
Tell him you will not fly with him and you are quitting and want to go back to the parking area.

If he refuses stop the engines and get off the airplane.

Re: C150 spin versus C152

My experience in straight tail Cessnas (150, 172, 180, and 185), is that they all spin and recover just fine.
I'll second that statement......

....with the additional comment that it works just fine for those who are capable of flying them properly.

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

How they managed to hold an ATPL and PPC always baffled me.
The above says everything one needs to know about the quality of flight training and over site by the regulator in Canada.

It borders on criminal neglect and lack of understanding of their duty to public safety in my opinion.

no reasonable operational comparison can be between these two forms of propulsion other then possibly the throttle/thrust lever.

Re: Quebec R44 missing.

They are very reliable mechanically but are real touchy to fly, if you can smoothly fly a R22 all the other helicopters are a breeze to fly.
