An embarrassing incident for the poor chap.
A mistake that he now regrets.
Remember that he's one of our own so please let's drop it and move on shall we?

He happens to be a friend of mine, and is totally gutted about the whole thing. The Sun, as always, has totally sensationalised the story. It was a mistake, and he regrets it.
We've all done things we're not proud of, and we all make mistakes. Leave the poor guy alone.

Admire your loyalty and believe your mate is gutted. However, the Sun did not 'sensationalise' the picture of him in uniform, in a jet, with his tackle out. Had he been a surgeon in an operating theatre, a teacher in a classroom etc the masses would be baying for his blood. His total lack of professional judgement calls into doubt his suitability for the job.

On a more serious note, don't you think he's perhaps only gutted because he's been humiliated and faces losing his job?

I agree with you that we have all done things we regret, but with the job comes responsibility and a responsibility for the company you are representing every day of your life. It's a mockery of the uniform that so many of us wish to wear, yet have not.

I guess those alcoholic swipes they leave in the cockpit (teehee) aren't such a bad idea after all. Can't say I ever really thought I'd see evidence of a pilot gripping his tool, then gripping his joystick.

Hope he washed his hands afterward......

I hope his lack of judgement, extreme vanity and, let's face it, perversity doesn't come across (arf arf!) in his flying and CRM. In my limited experience, character flaws (which we all have) do seem to influence how we operate on the flight deck. SOPs are there to help mitigate, but I doubt that there's an SOP for cleaning jizz off the EADI.

This subject crops up from time to time in non-aviation circles would you believe.

If you think about it, a large part of the qualification to be a commercial pilot involves the ability to anticipate, understand and take responsibility for the consequences of one's decisions and actions.

On the surface of it, it would seem this fellow should start looking for something to do with freight, because the liability of his employers for ANY air-carriage incident involving passengers and him could be nearly infinite following this public demonstration of poor judgement. Nothing of this sort will EVER be forgotten in the computer era.

That posting, to me, just highlights the jealousy that someone is up against when they have the courage to follow their dreams of becoming an airline pilot - everyone is out to shoot you down.

Granted, ole matey-boy coulda done without giving people the ammunition but for gawds sake, please make your minds up guys - do airline pilots have this huge responsibility or, are they simply bus drivers? If the latter is the case then why the concern about his suitability to fly people from A-B?

Either way, you've got them nailed haven't you? :rolleyes:

...that's because you haven't learned to suppress your gag reflex...

Also adds fuel to the old adage about the difference between cockpits and hedghogs being that hedgehogs have the pricks on the outside.

As an employer, I can tell you that the mistake he made with his truncheon meat photos is that both he and his place of employment (the cockpit) were clearly identifiable and inextricably linked, thus making it an HR issue over his judgement, integrity, legal awareness, commercial awareness, and general business acumen. If he was just showing off his towel rail in some dreadfully seedy place (Like the House of Lords) it would not have been so much of an issue.

He does however score bonus points for a well starched and crisp white shirt.

What a knob (that's censure, not praise).

Poor guy, we all make mistakes, though maybe not as public as this. I really hope he does not lose his job. As VFE says, hopefully it will only be talked about for a short time before being forgotten (or eclipsed by the next embarassing faux pas committed by someone else)

McAero
8th Dec 2006, 22:46
do airline pilots have this huge responsibility or, are they simply bus drivers?

I'm pretty sure if a bus driver behaved this way then he'd be sacked. Dirty Den was sacked from Easties for similar things at work too remember.

This is not acceptable. End of. No ifs. No buts. No excuses. I'd be sacked. You'd be sacked. Does being a pilot make you untouchable? No.

I reckon that with this on file the guy's a goner. He's indefensible in the future regardless of how trivial or contentious any incident that he could be associated with was. The lawyers would tear him to shreds. Co. would have to view him as a liability. Sad but true.

Now look here sonny jim, when you've got some bum fluff turning to stubble on your smooth little chin you can ask your elders to show you some 'respect' - but whilst your respect to an airline pilot (something you aspire to be) is derogatory and inflammatory you shall have to wait.

You must learn quick in this game lad, you don't take swipes at those further up the chain because everyone knows someone who knows someone who knows you and bad little arrogant eggs who chuck mud at others soon get pushed out the basket....

I'd also like to say that the article suggests that he was specifically asked by the anonymous lady on the net to send a photo of him in that particular pose. Whether he should of sent it is a misjudgement but does anyone actually know if this was an OPEN forum or a private chat??

Perhaps it is a case of entrapment by the very Journos who wrote the article??

Doesn't excuse it... but Shit happens and I'm sure he wouldn't have knowingly posted the uniform shot in a public space.
