Sounds like the USAPA did a pretty good job, contrary to what PCL and REZ are spewing.

Heck...I thought USAPA would've been out of money by now....at least that is what some would've had us believe awhile back.

Way to go USAPA. So the Captain got the logbook out of the airplane, but was he wearing his hat?! :smash:

Kudos to US1549 crew.

Very impressed with what USAPA has created in such a short time: A real, effective organization that protects its members. This story proves it.

The silence from the usual FI.com detractors is deafening :)

She should be pleased with USAPA. They haven't destroyed her career or made her a laughingstock.

Yet.

Jumpseating in First Class. That must have been a weird experience for an AA pilot.

USAPA is using this accident to legitimize themselves. I think it's actually in pretty bad taste. They've been trying to ride Sulley's coat tails since that plane hit the water. If that would have been a West crew, they would have been trying spin it differently...about the lack of experience, how a "true" USAIR pilot would have made it back to LGA....pretty much anything that would help the company get the pilots fired. All things being equal, any orgainization skill they showed came from years of training with ALPA...(and I'm not a real fan of ALPA).

Say what you want about USAPA, but they represented their pilots well and their pilots represented USAPA well. Very impressive all the way around.
