Well your first name seems indicative of your persona. Reason #45,678 NOT to join an airline...

Good catch! Hook, line, sinker, most of the rod and his bait bag too!

Now back to the thread...

Fly fishing used to be what one did on BKK overnights but there is now a comprehensive program poolside at the USRC.

BTW what is wrong with the comments? It is one of the reasons for the increase in commander fatigue on ULH rosters

claire 40,

You said:

"Its quite simple really.Just ring the HK CAD they know everything."

I say:

"Please don't say that. I don't work for the Hong Kong CAD yet."

As Sir Humphry would say...couldn't agree with you more but I will certainly try...

All those twats playing with the bits and bobs without knowing what they really do...is enough to keep anyone awake at night....especially over Siberia and the frozen wastes of Alaska

Thank you HFX.

I'm pleased that you understand my concerns. They say you shouldn't stereo type people but I've been in this game long enough to see the trends that filter through the training system.

G.A. pilots being trained by young STC's with minimal experience it's a recipe for disaster in my opinion. When I read their training file it frightens me, inexperienced trainers with G.A. guys could it get any worse.

In a nutshell yes it could and it will.

Hopefully we still have enough checks and grey hair in place but it is only a matter of time.

I certainly would not allow any of my loved ones to travel Air Asia and their kin but we are heading that way ourselves.
