My whole working life has been dedicated to aviation.

I have trained many military pilots on a wide range of multiengined transport aircraft through to high performance jet aircraft. In more recent years I have trained many airline S/Os, F/Os and Captains on a variety of widebody airline aircraft.

The MPL system is based soley on political expediency and airline economics. Most changes to pilot training over the years have been based on training excellence and safety.

It is my firm belief that if the MPL system is implemented, it will result, sometime down the track, in the unnecessary loss of hundreds if not thousands of innocent lives.

I hope that I am proven to be wrong...
