View Full Version : Is CRM diminishing for some?

I don't know if its my bad luck but in recent weeks I've seen a marked deterioration in CRM (757/767 BA). Maybe not co-incidently its generally been with captains at 28-30 years service although that is not a generalisation). I recently did a tour with a captain who I might as well have not been there as far as he was concerned. 30 years, joined at 19 etc.He knew everything I new nothing, meddled with FMC/heading bug/route on my sectors, never advised me of changes on his sectors very autocratic, an attitude I thought was being faded out. This is not an isolated incident either. For info I'm an SFO with over 10 years aviation experience coming up for command. I hope I'm like the majority of our younger captains when I switch seats.Maybe these dinosaurs are incapable of change and I've just been exposed to a few recently.

CRM - as in "Your the crew, and he's the management !"
