Keep in mind that many have been telling him to pipe down for quite a while now... so you never know your luck.

Hopefully living in his favourite place - the land of milk & honey...

I must admit I had to look that up and Iím glad I did, because it couldnít have been closer to the truth!

Maybe Dick knows?

Or perhaps he's met the farmer's daughter with the... :uhoh:

I doubt he would be hiding. I trust he is well, healthwise. Maybe he's off flying overseas?
While he makes no claim to be the fount of all knowledge, his lifetime practical flying experiences and studies of regulation /.reg. making means he knows a faaarking sight more than many a 'richard cranium' in CasA.
And a lot of people that inhabit prune as well.
May we have "tootle pip' update soon..
Remember...we are all part of the aviation brotherhood, all individuals and all with differing views and opinions.

you're taking the p1ss aren't you?

I admire him and hope to see him back soon!

Who cares!

To clarify the comment in my earlier post about the land of milk & honey - I was referring to the USA, but see that Israel also shares that title...

Pprune hates fellas that have significant, diversified experience. Pprune loves generation outrage wankas that know it all.

I'd rather read Leadsled than some of the un-ethical 'jet transport pilots' that inhabit the place.

IIRC, it was Leadsled who suggested sometime ago that the overrated but underperforming Ford Anglia was the height of modern day automotive engineering. I can only assume that this opinion was formed through the prism of long held, but swiftly fading memories of the occasional romp on the back seat!

Until he returns to this forum, repents and admits to the error of his ways, any thoughts/opinions offered by Leadsled of a technical nature should be discounted and treated with the contempt that they deserve. He obviously has no idea.

You have summed it up totally Porter!

We are own worst enemies. Professional Pilots in general should look outside of the cockpit and have a backup if circumstances change for the worst, regardless of age.

I joined the two regulators, then went into the Oil and Gas industry. If I can do this, any pilot can!

"if circumstances change"... like your windscreen suddenly fills with lighty that can't be avoided? Good one.

PS: thread drift, as only Luddy Sluddy would do. :rolleyes:

I thought the P76 had that title.

Bloggs,
Smart pilots do it long before health problems related to old age or anything else sets in, do it whilst youth is on oneís side. not after a health scare or anything else negative with regards to maintaining a Class 1.

Itís easy to get back into professional flying, even after a few years of being out of it for an experienced pilot with the right attitude.

What percentage of professional pilots could comfortably transition into another reasonably paid job outside of a cockpit tomorrow, should the rug be unexpectedly pulled out from underneath them for what ever reason? Thatís my point Iím trying to get across, think out of the square as reality sometimes can bite very hard for the unprepared.

Capn Bloggs 25th Nov 2019 00:42

Sorry Quacker, I misread your post. I thought you were agreeing with Porter's disdain for jet pilots, and his theory that we should just be able to look out the window in E and See and Avoid!

I do agree with your point about being prepared for the unexpected. :ok:

Porter's disdain for jet pilots,
No, no, no, Captain. You got it all wrong. I was 'asked to leave' a thread because a 'generation outrage' said it was a thread for 'jet transport pilots' only. I was having a go at that clown, not you.

I love youse (us) blokes!

Flew over Avalon the other day in a 150, got a bit close to an A320, I don't think he could give a rats? No TA or RA.

Would they care if you were a Jet Non-Transport Pilot? I mean if I flew a Jet purely for recreation uses and had no intention of transporting anyone anywhere? Or would that also be frowned upon? Also what about Turbo-Jet or Turbo-Fan Transport Pilots? I think you should go back to that thread and get some clarification ;)
