Couple of points about the visual into SFO. Generally speaking 28L is fairly straightforward and often given to heavies. 28R can be much more challenging because airspace restrictions and noise...

The sooner the public base their decision making on safety rather than cost the better. If there really is a systemic problem concerning the training and experience of airline pilots within the...

Heavy Heavy, Amen to that. Deep down we all know this should never have happened, but those of us who have operated into SFO where parallel approaches are REQUIRED in order to get maximum use of...

Perhaps a bit too much focus on ILS. Please don't forget the PAPIs. Thanks to the PAPIs, this aircraft made it to the runway. It certainly appears as though one of the crew spotted the red lights...

My last landing into SFO in June involved a right turn on to south for 28R pointing directly at another aircraft being positioned for 28L. We were kept at 6000' for noise abatement reasons on the...

Since June it has been something of a lottery as to whether or not PAPIs are available to 28L/28R. Be very interested if anyone has a copy of the SFO Notam for July 6 prior to the accident. I can't...

Yeah, blame the crew entirely, and crack on as though it never happened. That is an impressive approach to safety management.

If you don't mind, I'd prefer to learn the lessons and try and...

Try and look at it another way. I don't think anyone is arguing against the fact that airline pilots should be able to cope with a visual approach with no g/s info. However, would it be safer to...

It is far too early to assess the impact on any airline, never mind RYR on the uptick in employment prospects for the pilot industry. From several sources, it has been confirmed that hundreds of...

I find the use of the term "rich kids" similarly insulting. UK Government now defines "the rich" as those with taxable earnings above 37,401. Hardly rich by anyone's standards, but rich enough to...

BALPA carries quite a bit of weight in the media, so it is significant in that "there must be a looming shortfall" if BALPA say so. I think a global shortfall might well be in the offing given...

BBF, just want to pull you up on a point you made about Cameron being less interventionist, hence the need to re-jig (but still keep the Carriers..).
