Thanks mate. Appreciate the sentiment.

Even though, as you know, the amens are wasted on me.

I guess by the mods moving this thread away from where FBN trolls has caused some confusion. I would have preferred it to remain where it was, but I guess it's not my train set.

Fair enough ID - I've seen the bloke around and agree 100% with what you've said but he's hardly the only one! Oh well, no point wasting any more breath on them.

What you have basically done is destroy FBN's credibility.....


In many cases this can be frowned upon......but this is a special case.

FBN would spend a lot of time trying to convince young blokes in GA to give up there dreams of flying for the big boys.

He can say whatever he like, but when he was trying to dresteoy the dreams of the lads who are doing the tough (and in many ways enjoyable) yards in aviation, that is when I intervened.

I mentioned my own careers steps and dates from c210 (finest machine you will every fly) to Pistons twins to turboprops, to light jets and now to the much bigger (albeit boring) fly-by-wire long haul. (When I get China flights, my whole body convulses).
I did I this to high light to the blokes in GA that there are still MANY avenues available to chase your dreams,

What did flyBoatNorth do???........the cocksucker called me a liar.

So I am glad that someone had identified what the REAL motivations were behind FBN's more negative posts.

Hopefully now all the lads looking for the next rung up the slippery pole will look at the posts by FBN and recognise them for what they are.......a sad and pathetic rant by someone who didn't make the cut and wants to make everyone as miserable and as disgruntled as himself.

I do apologise for the spelling.....4 beers.....complete laziness to check spelling and grammar.


IsDon, fine work.

Lol. Never wasted on you mate. Known you too long over too many stoushes to worry about that anyway!

Is kind of ironic that I happened to post immediately after a contributor called 'Eternity' though!

They were good stoushes though, and we had a beer afterwards.

BTW, love the fish. But shouldn't it have legs?

Gentlemen, I normally only grace the pages of PPRuNe to polish my vocabulary and to see the latest take on definitions.

definition
dɛfɪˈnɪʃ(ə)n/

noun
noun: definition; plural noun: definitions
  1. 1.
    a statement of the exact meaning of a word, especially in a dictionary.
    "a dictionary definition of the verb"




When I'm not looking for definitions, I like to see examples of crass journalistic stories involving aeroplanes, you know, those sensational stories that make us professionals sputter into their coffees at the utter lack of technical knowledge?



If I am quick enough I might even quip in with a "Oh don't worry gentlemen, it must just be the Thronomister! Ho Ho Ho!"


But Alas, sometimes I am beaten to the mark


Which gets me onto my final point.



As professionals we need to safe guard our reputation and more importantly expose those who wish to be like us. We all know that members of the great unwashed give sly glances as we swish by in uniform. You've seen it. I've seen it. They want to be us.



But not everyone can.


So it is incredibly important that isDon has taken time out of his/her busy life, looking after the kids (grandkids) keeping the wife (mistress) happy or generally engaging in any activity that forms what we call 'life' to expose such an imposter as this flyboat north who must cause so much consternation to many here on these virtual forums.



Who knows how many young boys he has discouraged from entering GA though his vile rants, the next homeless bum rattling their tin at you could be a discouraged GA pilot



Myself, I know, have spent many nights awake concerned that someone could pretend to be such as me.



But now finally, due to the investigative powers of isDon I can rest easily knowing that another virtual imposter, dare I say 'troll' has been put in their place!


And I particularly enjoy the illiterate and grammatically incorrect replies of the 'over excited professionals' and wonder about their examples and if it was so important wouldn't they use spell check at the very least?



Which brings me to my last point.... sorry gentlemen... I may of indulged in one too many 'reds'! (So I am excused!)

Ah!
The compy strikes again with yet another literary masterpiece on the subject of 'Us Professionals'.

Oh dear!

It seems I've rattled someone's cage.

A guy obviously as smart as Compylot (Compilot??) should know sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.

If you're going to give us all a lesson in grammar then maybe you should get your own house in order.
