PartyReptile,

'Statistics and damn lies'. That and maybe nobody cares what conclusions YOU draw. Ever done military training yourself? If not, wind your neck in until you know what you're talking about.

That goes for NN too. You make sweeping statments such as alchol before flying being 'obviously' accepted in the RAF. You prat, that's exactly the kind of crap that the stupid C4 woman was trying to say existed in BA. It gets everyone a very bad name, introduces unecessary regulations and tars responsible pilots with a poor reputation. Grow up and think before you write such drivvle on a public forum.

Secondly, since you've never been a military pilot you are not qualified to comment on how good, bad or indifferent it is to be one. There are twits in every walk of life (you are living proof) and it is a shame that someone didn't see the bigotted, small minded personality in you when you bluffed your way through selection. It's such a shame I can't figure out who you are, it would be such a pleasure having you sitting next to me and seeing how truly marvellous you are.

Pontius

Just to put my veiw around things being an RAF pilot is not easy to any account. The training is shall we say thourough and also difficult being in the Mititary enviroment.

So to conclude they have'nt really..

My view on this is that it is not easy to become a pilot whether civil or military but I don't think thats really the point. Military pilots to a man, are all highly trained and extremely good military pilots,(the washout rate is very high), however that doesn't mean that they all tranfer to the commercial world well(CRM).Thankfully all the ex mil guys i fly with are great, but i know some who have found adjusting difficult.
Pontius, Partyreptile got me thinking and (i'm sure i'll be corrected)but haven't most of the bigger incidents we've had over the years involved ex mil blokes?

I reckon Ghengis said it all on page one. I have rarely read a more balanced and objective post on this forum. If you haven't read it go back and have a gander before you contribute further to this old chestnut. Hopefully it will bring you to your senses and this post can die a death.

Actually I was out of order mentioning booze and I've removed it. Wrote that after a few beers funnily enough. Apologies to Mike.

Question

Hey Kids!

Still have not heard ONE word in denial. Tough to refute facts, not opinions, isn't it?

An additional observation--concerning the giving of license's without going through the usual exam routine--"IF you are having trouble meeting the requirements, lower the requirements!"

PR: how many AA pilots do not have a military background as a ratio of those who do? Idiots can prove anything with statistics.

OK reptile.....why don't you read this slowly.

This is a thread concerning the issue of ATPL accreditation to certain pilots of the Royal Air Force, Fleet Air Arm & Army Air Corps.

Your grudge seems to be with the ex-military fraternity of the USA, and the USMC in particular.

I suspect that because very few of them will be affected by the nature of this thread, you are unlikely to get an informed rebuttal of your poisonous thoughts.

I am surprised with the ferocity of your attack ( more kills than cancer? ) and the your tenacity to drive home your point.

Given that your other postings on North American aviation matters have been so calm & reasoned, I am at a loss as to why you have decided to re-invent your persona to that of mis-directed attack dog.

Bash - agree entirely, why not stop the thread now and let someone start up something different. Mr Moderator, please close it.

You won't hear anything here. You have to be able to read.

Now go and try it, starting with Gentleman Aviator's last post and work back from there.
