    Pilot Grasps Stowaway Snake

    Depends on what type of black snake. A typical one, not poisonous. But remember, some "black" snakes in the general statement are. For example, the cotton mouth. However, unless he was in a float plane, it wouldn't be a cotton mouth. Black racers and coach whips are not poisonous but they...

    Hangin with the Frenchies

    While I agree the french can be rude, that is not always the case. I just spent 10 days in Dijon and had a wonderful trip. Friendly folks and great wine in the Burgundy district. The farther you get from large cities the more french you'll need to know. The Riviera is fantastic, especially...

    Airbus Planes to Use Computers In Crash-Avoidance Maneuvers

    I, for one, am against taking more out of the pilot's hands. We're already given direction commands on ACAS RA's and EGPWS commands. Eurocontrol puts out a newsletter dealing with ACAS and RA's, errors and incorrect responses to commands. Therein lies the problem. Some pilots, and...

    One of the nice things about the IS-BAO manual is you can incorporate your own previous manual and SOPs. That being said we haven't done the audit and to be quite honest, I doubt we will. Their manual takes into account many great factors that should be considered and for the most part we do...

    Corporate Overseas

    One of the trade pubs had an article and ex-pats working abroad. Quite a lucrative deal for those with little connections or commitments to the home land. Some were 30/30 (On/Off), some had admirable vacation plans. Almost all had phenominal salaries. I don't recall the exact figure, but I...

    training prob.....

    You're instructor should already be picking up on this. Most take it into consideration when evaluating BOTH pilots and won't (shouldn't) hold it against the stronger pilot. If you feel it's hampering your training, by all means talk to your CSR, instructor, program manager, whomever it takes...

    Commander 700

    Don't walk but run from this aircraft! First there were only about 26-28 ever built. I flew N9911S and N9922S back in the 80s and the plane is a PIG from the word go. For example, the tower would place bets if we'd clear the trees on takeoff. Now I'll try and be positive. The cabin is...

    Indy Corps

    Just curious, are you furloughed? A300 CA not working out? I'm not trying to be a smart ass, just curious thats all. For what it's worth, I have a friend who flies out of IND. He interviewed with Lily about 2 years ago and turned down a job offer due to the "ridiculous low pay" for a G4...

    LSE Anyone?

    I flew out of there for six years in the 90s and, if they haven't remodeled, the answer is no. Just the couch in the pilot lounge. Knowing the owner, I'm betting its the same today.
