Question : Why didn't I open my mouth ??? That's the trick, because if you're toast !!
Unfortunately based on several recent posts this seems in many ways to reflect the state of the industry. When many of the people who are in positions to know the difference (pilots, engineers, training crews etc..) collectively see a problem but are intimidated by corporate scare tactics the industry is indeed heading into unknown territory. Also prevelant is the notion that things have advanced to the point where many have given up any notion of how to resolve these issues. When training and flight safety programmes are "locked-on" to SOP that may have been intentionally limited there's only one word to describe the collective thought process employed - dangerous.
To reverse it we have to rely on those in positions to know the difference to take the risk and speak out, because if we're waiting for the beancounters.................we're all toast !!
