Um no, those guys are not AMERICAN pilots.

They are commuter pilots who work for a United Express Commuter, known as Trans States.

Another black eye for the aviation community. Proves anyone can get a commuter job these days.

Putting down Americans is a time honored tradition here on PPRune... (now an American owned pilot forum):)

I can see where the lesser nationalities would be jealous.

We are truly the most fortunate people on the face of the Earth.

As ole Dizzy Dean once said "It ain't braggin' if you done it!":ok:

At least the helicopter with the FLIR wasn't launched, like that pilot and flight attendant running naked in the woods up north.....

This is such a joke no matter what country you are from
Why post the medical certificates, limitations for hemorrhoid's.?
Does anyone of these pilots here actually operate an aircraft or could they even move one if need be? Mooned quite a few in my younger years.
Might moon some more if I need too, ha ha.
Get a life!!!!

Well...it's not exactly paedophilia, is it? So a person who happens to be employed as a pilot gets drunk and carries out an action that is mildly amusing and doesn't 'hurt' anybody, unless his ass is not a pretty sight, which it won't be anyway! Does the world stop turning? Did I miss something- did he fly people in an inebriated state? What is the connection with mooning and being a pilot? All of us at some stage have gotten drunk to some degree. What is the problem now? Get so drunk you walk into the Ladies toilet by mistake and you become a 'XXX Airlines pilot sex pest'? The guy went on a bender. He wasn't flying or working. He's no different to 'nurse gets drunk and moons'. The world seems to be getting rather pathetic.
