Wingsfolded, cor blimey don't take it to heart.

The point about this being a professional issue is simply the insider knowledge we have on all the aspects of this.

Wingsfolded, again with all due respect, the problem is that you are commenting on professional pilots' issues with no knowledge of such.

Wings folded, please take this reply in the good natured way it is intended, but you have obviously no understanding of SOP's, as you yourself imply.

Old-timer, there's nothing wrong with ex-military aircrew and I'm sure 411A would agree. But hey, he doesn't need me to speak for him.

The point is, a fellow military aviator has expressed an...

Double Zero, with all due respect your example is a non sequiter as your "Norman" will not be Captain of the aircraft, being as you say, newly qualified.

Starbear, with all due respect to Bader's memory, perhaps he is not the best role model for a civilian airline pilot. Wartime very different to peacetime.
