Covid Vaccines and Pilots

Got sent sent this link today. Airline Pilots Fight For Safety
Seems to me to be a typical click bait beat up, particularly when I see a certain ex Qantas pilot quoted.
Australia’s Graham Hood, a former Qantas airline pilot and now motivational speaker, has provided a list of incidents within the airline industry in Australia that had either been sent to him or involved people he knew personally.
This gem really put the whole article in perspective.
To date, we are aware that only approximately 300 medical exemptions have been issued nationwide for covid vaccines. As we understand is the case with Air NZ, those pilots who were to get medical exemptions would still be faced with job loss or indefinite leave without pay as any medical condition to receive such an exemption would preclude them from holding an aviation medical.
How can someone lose their job as a pilot when they have a medical condition preventing them from holding a medical to start with? What Einstein wrote this?

Because people have suddenly "discovered" conditions to try and get an exemption.

Shame that means "discovereing" you can't hold a medical....

Daily examiner- wasn't that the same rag Mullah Kintyre used to spread mis-information?

Maybe it’s a duty of care to the 99.98% of pilots who do comply (in before “but if they’re vaccinated then what’s their worry!?)

Something I don’t understand is why people who have ‘woken up’ and formed a very strong opinion about why vaccines are ‘bad’ don’t go and inform the authorities.

You’ve got it all worked out and they’re wrong - you should go and let them know! Your views must be based on very solid evidence and reasoning, so why don’t YOU go to your local state health department, the UN or whatever and explain it to them?

The decision makers are living a big lie because of big pharma/qanon/Hilldawg/etc and you’ve found huge flaws in the whole deal with your internet connection. Surely even the rusted in ‘bias’ of doctors, scientists and medical experts will be persuaded by your incredible evidence because you’ve WOKEN UP!

You have solid proof! Irrefutable evidence! Watertight theories! Boundless and prodigious medical knowledge!

Why haven’t you walked in there and told them?

Because they’re all part of the deep-state conspiracy, and if you go anywhere near them, you’ll be implanted with a 5G tracking device which they’ll use to do, well, something or other.

You mean the shameless, God-bothering self-promotor who now thinks he's a "Motivational speaker"? Yeah- thanks Graham...

I know one on that list that had nothing to do with the vaccine. Stop peddling bullshit.

Anyone employed inside who provides these clowns with the fuel they need to write these articles, quoting people’s names that are lies, needs to be sacked.

Yes, that list is the first time I've seen anyone list (real or not) severe side effects for Australian employees. But I don't know anyone personally or even through hearsay that has lost their medical to the jab. However I have spoken directly to a few pilots that have now lost their medical in the US from Covid virus complications to the heart and lung.

That article is the biggest bunch of bullshit I have read in a long time, at least two of the entires in that list are total garbage from my personal knowledge so I assume the ones from the other airlines are also total bullshit.

Hahahaha what a nutter. If accurate, they could ground the entire United States, or they could just change one word and move on. But nah, every pilot is gonna be in super bad trouble

Just came to a thought that airline bean counters will fall in love with. Since its been determined that the money and time spent in training of the medical profession and epidemiologists has been of no use why then do we spend inordinate sums of money and invest lengthy periods of time in training people in the aerospace industry? The airline could just ask for volunteers to occupy the two front seats, if the machine breaks there will be a handy man on board who knows about spanners, screwdrivers, hammers and things, there will undoubtedly be someone on board who sells TV's and white goods so electronics and electrics are covered. The $2 ML - SY airfare will be a reality, forget fast trains, you heard it here first, you know it makes sense.
