To every pilot who flys...ADMIT THAT YOU ARE HUMAN and MIGHT SCREW UP...as soon as you do that, you will check things over and over again.
Agreed, and yet flight managers don't believe flight data from their own FOQA Program and refuse to acknowledge that serious mistakes can, and have been made, and we have a couple here who, whether they believe it or its merely macho bluster for public consumption, express the notion that they don't make mistakes and would advocate the dismissal those who do and that safety programs are apparently left-wing nanny-state conspiracies that trap only the "weak" but don't apply to the "strong". Go figure, that in the face of all the evidence to the contrary, that such an attitude remains sustainable. Why it is even a discussable point is surprising and disappointing but there it is.
