  1. Dude, what the fuck? You should report that dumb ass CFI to the FAA as well as the school. You got screwed by an incompetent CFI (won't do stalls???) and hard ass DPE. Failed for not knowing a shimmy damper? Wow.

    NFL Ratings are Way Down

    What a bullshit statement. Execution rate? GMAFB. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2017/ Summary: Unarmed White Men killed by police: 24 (2017) and 17 (2018) Unarmed Black Men killed by police: 19 (2017) and 12 (2018) Yes, there are more White Men in the population than Black Men. But to draw some type of tyrannical conclusion that the 700,000+ police officers in the country are on some kind of black citizen "Execution" spree with 19 unarmed black deaths compared to 24 unarmed white deaths is just ridiculous.

    Navy Pilots on Strike over OBOGS Issues

    Saw this today on Aviation Week... NASA Finds Boeing Showed ‘No Initiative’ To Fix F/A-18 Hypoxia Aviation Week & Space Technology In a little-noticed addendum to NASA’s report on the unexplained physiological episodes plaguing U.S. Navy F/A-18 pilots, the agency concluded that Boeing, the manufacturer, showed “no initiative” to fix the problem. But Boeing is pushing back, arguing that it has long been a “proactive partner” in the Navy’s efforts to mitigate the harrowing cockpit events.
  6. Valid point. But at Delta at least, we have been steadily hiring WAY more per year than even our peak year will see in retirements.
  7. Seniority is everything at an airline as long as you are actually working. I remember a bunch of guys back in the late 90's crunching the numbers in the squadron and the math then, like now, clearly said GET OUT NOW!!! Many did, most were promptly hired, almost all were quickly furloughed, and were then begging for a job. At any time, anything can happen to dramatically change the landscape. In 1998, you COULD NOT LOSE by going to an airline! The math ALWAYS came out ahead by getting out ASAP...until there wasn't a job.
  8. Such bullshit that this article was even written or that charges were filed. The alleged victim, who made the allegations, is his soon to be ex-wife who, until a couple days ago, was fighting a losing battle for custody. Sad and disgusting that a dude's name is dragged through the mud before any of the facts of the case come to light.

    Shhhh...Don't talk about the A-10

    BGI does a ton of F-35 sim acceptance and development work. Probably not a bad gig as far as Defense Industrial Complex jobs go..

    Gotcha

    The new airline thread

    You're talking about a dude with a full time ART job taking an airline job with no intention of leaving the full time ART job?

    The new airline thread

    Pretty sure he's not suggesting you SHOULD do that, he's saying you shouldn't be worried about what would happen if it did. If you know you're cheating and a conversation between the airline and the unit would expose said cheating, you probably shouldn't be doing it.
  14. Curious...did you build it or buy it already built?
