Forum for Pilots.

Despite the forum titles and descriptions, it is obvious that these 'Flight Deck' forums are full of people that don't actually work on the flight deck of aircraft.

I'm sure it has come up before but can we have a forum that is only for 'flight deck' as the amount of nonsense and incorrect 'information' posted on here is reaching new levels of drivel.

Sure, keep rumour or 'news' sections but lets have a closed forum, like the airline specific ones, where airline pilots can discuss issues relevant to them in private.

I agree there must be one place where uninterrupted discourse may take place. Too many people are involving themselves and concealing their background. Any pilot shouold have it clearly in his profile on the left what he is and what he flies. Or retired, and what he flew. But there are times you get heartily fed up with flight simmers telling us how to do it!
I believe 'the powers that be' baulk at the administration involved.

whatdoesthisbuttondo,
With your faintly ridiculous user name, I would say you're not the best placed for this sort of suggestion.

I've worked on a Concorde flight deck before you were out of nappies.
Doesn't mean I flew the beast.... or that I have a licence to do so.

Flight deck, engineers, ground crew, designers, etc. etc. are supposed to be a team.

Pretending that having a licence makes you all-seeing, all-hearing, all-knowing and not in need, at times, of input from those who not have only the flight deck as their world, is so narrow-minded.... that I can barely believe it.

If you are actually part of the "flight deck population", I hope I will never be in the same aircraft as you.

Cool

Yep, this is not a very good pub, is it?

ChristianJ, some of your posts illustrate very clearly that, whilst you may have some worthwhile thoughts, you're not a professional pilot, nor capable of thinking like one.

Would you wish to include active and retired flight-engineers, loadmasters, navigators and radio officers ??? What about newly qualified PPLs ? Old experienced glider pilots ? Or do you feel they would have nothing to contribute to your exclusive forum ???

Nope, just 'professional pilots', as it says.

I'm sure it has come up before but can we have a forum that is only for 'flight deck'
How could you prove that you are "Flightdeck"?

Who will have the time here (at PPRuNe) to go through the vetting process?

Setting a new forum up is not a problem but the admin side of it would be very time consuming for someone to verify everyone who forwards details to be allowed access to the forum.

Besides with just pilots, it would be quite boring!!!!!!!!!!

Besides it is normally pretty obvious who is and who isn't involved in aviation on a professional basis.

No, just airline pilots. If you don't understand why, you shouldn't be in there anyway.

It is not about exclusion in order to create some sort of elite group... it is about a group of people with a common occupation, discussing that occupation, without all the spotters and flight-simmers and PPLs who have no idea what our job is about, trying to offer (un)informed opinions.

No offence, and I'm sure you are all jolly fine chaps and chapettes, but sometimes it is nice to simply hang out with your peers.

I'm sure many of the non-pilots here do the same thing in their own vocational groups.

Of course the ones who will object will inevitably be all the wannabes who tend to frustrate us the most...

Anyway, it will never happen, so I suppose this thread is pointless. Been mooted before several times, nothing ever came of it.

Maybe time for a completely new forum, for airline pilots only?

Before all the angry types get all upty, I said keep all the other forums. Just have ONE, just one, forum for pilots only.

I'm NOT talking about making PPRuNe just for pilots just ONE forum. Most airlines have their own closed forum why not have one for airline pilots.

If engineers or retired pilots or people who have worked on concorde want one too then feel free to suggest it.

I'm fed up of all this incorrect inacurate rubbish on here and would like somewhere I can post in private that hopefully has less.

I would make my own website for pilots if I could or had the time but alas can't.

remoak,

If you're so vain that you think nobody else can contribute anything to the subtle discussions in your esoteric sphere, blessings to you.

I just hope I will never have to fly with a blinkered idiot of your kind.

Pilots can learn a great deal from non pilots. This is why an open forum is best, in spite of some silly comments. I am certain Professor James Reason would agree with me.

It ain't rocket science, you know....
Thirteen-year old kids do it.

If you actually knew how to use the internet, rather than moan on here, you'd probably find dozens of sites that correspond exactly to your profile.
So let PPRuNe get on with its job. We can deal with the odd interloper and odd bit of rubbish.

I think the point is being missed. We have a forum for wanabees, cabin crew, cargo pilots, ATC, Engineers, GA pilots, private pilots (etc etc) but we don't actually have an open forum for passenger airline pilots, so we just congregate in rumours & news along with everybody else.

So keep R&N and maybe adding a new forum simply named "Airline Pilots" could solve some of these problems?

Thank you for making our point. That post is exactly why we'd like our own forum.

Send a pic to the mod with one's ugly mug in a lion tamers suit on the flight deck while airborne ??
