    The only things that suck worse than unions is management and having to fly with those old, bitter, disgruntled, impolite, profane, name calling A-holes who have been betrayed by one or both! :)

    Ah, so your back pay and 401 matching are all caught up... Excellent! Oh wait-the company didn't earn that income? Now what else could one call a handout from the nanny state? I don't think that Flexjet is "Too big to fail" although if history is any indicator, bailouts and handouts rarely...

    Interest in aviation artwork? :)

    Nice, very cool!

    Arizona Soaring

    I hear that glider instructors love to torment lazy footed power plane pilots which lends credibility to the claim about making for the best stick and rudder skills. The comment about the J-3 is kind of lame though, they don't have any bad habits-oh, they are no C-150 by any means but if you...

    One would presume at some point they had to be up and running to be closed down... I'm sure if you asked Adam Schidt it is all President Trump's fault and somehow it is a Ukrainian/Russian operation to subvert free elections in the US.

    Asian Start-Up Airlines

    I don't think I'd go to work for a PRC airline...seriously, they could hire 99% US pilots and then violate any "contract" they established for any reason they invent and it's not like you could successfully mount a class action suit against them either in the People's Republic of Crap or in the...

    In 10 years AOC says, No more airlines!

    Not quite given that the most corrupt and distrusted corruptocrat to ever pollute the US political scene actually lost the last election... You can disagree openly as far as I'm concerned-because I believe in the Constitution, Amendments and Bill of Rights (unlike many libtards who are trying...

    ImagineAir Expansion ?

    You can't follow an "Uber" type model in aviation-the equipment costs are too damn high even if you could find people to fly them for free!

    MOXY...Neeleman's latest start up

    Interesting...I don't know how many of the ASA or Express Jet types are on the street still but he missed out on a glut of experienced RJ people. The thing is that many of them have been around a long time and well beyond malleable to fir the cookie cutter any start-up is going to want to stamp...

    ImagineAir Expansion ?

    While nothing to laugh about, it seems that G may have been correct...of course all hindsight is 20/20! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImagineAir

    Certificated Air Carriers are like the bars that hire garage bands for weekend live music... in other words they're all bottom feeders-some just have better work rules and pay than others!

    Place sounds like a tax write-off to me...

    Not if they don't have any flights! :eek:

    American Pilot Disappeared after Getting New Type Rating

    But his Engrish is pretty good, you must admit! :LOL: Yep...that is a reasonable guess. Either that or a PO'd native that is upset because those who can afford to hire foreign pilots due to the lack of qualified locals because they don't want their bizjet to become a method of population...

    Cabin Crew Training in Chennai

    I do believe that in the interest of full disclosure it should be mentioned that while in India the Western Digestive System may very well be exposed to all kinds of new, previously unencountered and interesting bacteria and toxins that could result in violent chills, explosive percolating azz...

    EAL back in business

    Ya know, if I recall correctly I saw a 67 in Eastern colors in Miami back January or or perhaps in the early spring so they have a machine or two out there somewhere...

    Diarrhea in a freighter?

    15 years and still flowing! Montezuma's Revenge has got to be pretty rough but from what I've seen as intestinal distress goes, Delhi Belly takes no prisoners-er, or maybe makes the victims prisoners of the lav!

    New Part 135 SIC Regulation

    This may actually be a good thing and if done properly will not only open up a new path for young pilots to gain valuable, real world experience as well as enhancing safety in a segment of the market that is given to lowering costs by operating single pilot IFR with the inherently high workloads...

    MOXY...Neeleman's latest start up

    :ROFLMAO: Jack-booted Smurfs... OMG you just made my day! :ROFLMAO: The thing that is so sad to me is that as offensive as the very fact that they even have to exist in this world is, they aren't as bad as the airlines themselves have become. United has aircraft on it's certificate that can...

    Regardless, more management does not make flying safer. In fact it is frequently the case that FAA mandated management is the problem rather than the solution. I don't know much about Bank Air but I have worked with a couple of guys who had done time at a certain Convair operator and lived to...
