Don't forget I started by saying I have been retired for a long time. When I was doing it, bearing in mind my user-name precedes Pontius even starting training, it was all under CAA regulatons. My...

Paul 852.

Don't forget though that the earlies, making up half the days, are 9 hour DUTY max. Normally only two sectors. I do agree with you though. It was a bit of sloppy figuring on my...

Rough figures, and I'm long retired, so bear with me. Short-haul in Europe. Four sectors @ 2hr each = 8 hr. Add 1 hr report, 3 x 40 min turnround (not you-know-who) plus 30 min post-flight = 11.5...

Errr...on what do you base that? A pilot is thinking and acting (or at least monitoring) in 4 dimensions (the conventional 3 plus time). A car driver is only in 2. In fact, if you accept that a car...

A little bit excessive perhaps, but something like that will deter people. Maybe five tears inside for drunken behavior causing a diversion. Of course in UK, that would have to be at least 7.5...

Ref 303 Sqn. I can't comment on the uniforms, since I didn't particularly notice. However, the CGI, and the mock-ups were faultless. Before criticising too much, take account of the fact it was a...
