Work Photos on Social Media

Step 1.

Log on to Facebook or whatever social media is your thing

Step 2.

Delete every photo of you or taken by you in the cockpit of a company aircraft

Step 3.

Put your privacy settings to the most restrictive setting.

Finally, if you think this is an over reaction then ask the guy who is about to get crucified by his employer and the HKCAD.

Oh yeah. Happy new year.

Santa - assuming he didn't have an assistant in the photo - you can't be serious?!!

I don't 'social network'.

However, since this seems to be a thing of the moment, I find it to be the perfect Darwinian selection tool, sometimes.

Some people's desire to advertise every aspect of their lives seems to override their ability to realize that it may, at some stage, conflict with the interests of other individuals or entities.
Especially when said 'entity' is the one who employs you under the terms that will keep cognisant of their rules and publications, which happen to mention that no photography shall be made aboard the flight deck without proper authorization...

Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the guy. But then why, aside from vanity, would one expose himself in such a sensitive way?

Besides, chicks don't like pilots anymore. We don't make any money...

100% agree. Darwinism at work.

Actually some people don't have real friends. Like me sitting in a hotel room a million miles from reality. There's always Rodriguez!

Are you from the generation that tells kids to get off your lawn?

Agree 100% it is company policy

It is strictly forbidden for any person within the Flight Deck of any ... aircraft to use any

media, video, photographic or audio recording device or similar equipment, unless specifically

authorised by MLO or designate.

However it always amazes me and seems to be a flexible rule if you are going to submit it to CNews or for an aerial view of the latest typhoon that goes into a weekly update. I can't read that caveat in the above policy, but seems to happen with monotonous regularity.
Have no sympathy for an idiot who posts something on social media, but in the disciplinary procedure I know I would ask the question "why the double standard".

Ok, fine. Rules are rules.

But, can anyone please explain to me what is actually wrong about a photo of me in the cockpit, flying the aircraft??

This is a genuine question: is it a security risk, or what?

I cannot for the life of me see what might be driving this policy...

Plenty of airlines out there have no such rule and the Internet is littered with lots of high quality detailed photos of just about every flight deck you can imagine so it can't be a security risk.

CAD

Perhaps the CAD'stime would be better spent investigating the Company's abuse of the FTL and RP's instead of chasing FB pics!

Why would you post this without telling the story of what happened?

Perhaps JS needs to be reminded about his own wife's very embarrassing videos on youtube, before hauling in a bright eyed pilot who was simply keen to show off his/her new high flying job.

Mumpties

These Mumpties should be fired. Clear HD video of all our workspaces including the flight deck. Disgraceful. CAD where are you now?
