    thanks Further vavso, In reviewing your previous posts, you've discussed training problems in not one but two 121 initial programs. I don't think approach plates are the crux of the matter. I'm sorry it didn't work out here, we flush alot of good guys. Best of luck going forward. No chest...

    In defense of Flyn ryan Nothing wrong with using automation .I am sure if the 1900 had it you would be using it .

    Great lakes furloughs.... $ for approach charts

    I am wondering if they furloughed so they can finally buy the F.O.'s there own charts and app plates. "Borrowing "the captains so you can brief the approach and make notes about the approach plate on your TOLD card is archaic! Yes folks you get no charts as an F.O. !

    Pilot to Nurse

    Do some research like every other job more and more hospitals are using more non RN.s to perform any job that does not require an RN such as medical assistants and LPN's add into that tension between these workers .
