That mature attitude will sort it out. Just be a sheep and agree with everything the bosses say. Many of us did leave, but many good experienced pilots actually stayed and want to make things better. They actually care, unlike you Jay Sata.

Jay - I don't think anyone will be offended if you pop back out again.

hover taxi rounding up
Tried that once with a kid on a pushbike, but there were too many other people around.

Re Airwave cost savings

Come on, boys & girls, I always believed one of the "P"s in PPRuNe stood for professional, not purile?

The airwave bills might reduce if some (quite a few) officers on the ground didn't talk into the air, rather than their microphones, when communicating. Methinks they seldom realise how impossible they are to understand.

Whilst control-room operatives have a headset mic, and normally listen to just one talk-group at a time, they can often make out what is being whispered. With up to seven inputs into an NPAS helmet, and regularly 2 or 3 at the same time (if one is actually being professional, of course) repeating transmissions will un-necessarily increase Airwave transmissions.

Officially now down to three regions.
Same number of aircraft to dispatch, flight follow, update and provide valuable in flight information for, with less staff in the Ops/Control Centre!?

How does that work then, Sid?

NE lists Carr Gate, Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley but shows Barton, Warton and Hawarden on the list under North East region and none of those places are, from memory, terribly far East.

Then Benson, Boreham, Redhill and Wattisham are in the SE but then under South East it also shows Husbands Bosworth and Birmingham.

South West region only seems undecided about St Athan.

Elsewhere on the website the regions are named as North, South East and South West.

Is it just the website that's in a bit of a mugger's buggle?

Now then, who's brave enough to answer that one?
