Re: A President’s Message and a must read

I am saying that there are a lot of really bad pilots out there with 10 years of experience and a lot of bad pilots that are newer but have uni. Same for great pilots, same for OK pilots................ You talk about being a pilot like it is only about the technical skills, what about the rest of ...

Re: A President’s Message and a must read

The comment about you possibly having a PhD was more to do with the "I'm not calling you stupid" part of the sentence, not about your worth as a person. Your comment about PhDs is incorrect. A PhD is a 4 to 6+ year graduate degree requiring you to produce novel research in your field of study, culm...

Re: China the Aviation Mecca? Think again.

Thinking a communist third world country with MAJOR human rights issues is Mecca for anything is laughable. I mean there are plenty of other chit holes where you can make more money, take the Middle East for example, and at least over there's it's honest enough to not pretend to be anything different.

Flew with a guy recently that was offered then turned down a spot there. He said bond was $24k... Which makes sense, the pay is a little low for flying a B737, so they are probably worried people are going to just get the type, enough hours on type and jump to a better paying job. Isn't too bad if ...

Re: What kind of watch do you wear?

O&W mirage

It's a valjoux 7750 based watch.

Side note, in my experience a diving bezel comes in much more use for flying than a tiny little e6b.

I'm a automatic watch guy, to me a quartz watch is on the same lines as wearing Velcro shoes.
