Re: Young pilot opportunities

I arrange a conversion for them (at my cost), there after they fly as PIC. I have plenty hours, don't need anymore and I am lazy, much easier to let young hands fly.

Young pilot opportunities

Re: Enroute A380 wake flips Challenger 604 upside down

Been worrying about this for a while, logically the separation just seems to close, now add the accuracy of modern waas gps and everybody is following the same line. Saw a couple of videos of airliners passing each other in very close proximity. Think I will stick to the lower levels in the old Azte...

Re: Why so many small airplane accidents lately? - John J Nance.

In my humble opinion, and with the greatest respect to parties involved or concerned, the problem goes all the way back to the quality of training.

Have no idea about airline ops, but I must wonder why there always a ditch or a bridge at the end of the runway[emoji23]
