Yeah, he and MW "were" friends also....atrdriver said:..he IS a fine pilot... I count him as one of my friends, and that's not something that I say about many.
Interesting... When CS was moved out of the Airport position that he had, working for BL, he asked DB if there was a position in Flight Ops. DB told SY to find him a position. SY said he needs to check out on an airplane first. So CS "begins" ATR class. After about a week he goes back to DB. DB allows CS to go into Flt Ops without finishing ATR class.~~~^~~~ said:They need ATR IP's and Chromer will make a good one. He knows the airplane well.
A true professional would not have compromised his integrity. You blame the Company for his actions. A true professional would have returned to the line.GeekMaster said:See long ago before the company poisoned him with all the kool-aid..
EWWWW...Bleed Leaks....Unless its 100 degrees out and the props in feather...........might be the real thing....good call.~~~^~~~ said:Texx:
That is interesting. A couple of times I refused airplanes and got into debates with maintenance managers. In both cases Chromer got involved. He knew the aircraft's systems well enough to articulate the indication, the probable system discrepancy and back my decision to ASA management. I appreciated his knowledge and the fact that he did go to bat for me.
I would not have flown an airplane with CB's pulled for the entire bleed leak detection system just because maintenance "knew" it was a bad indication without ever having looked at the airplane - but it was still nice to have someone on the phone saying "Good job, Captain."
CS, it began back in 1999 when his boss was BL. CS would not use the "chain of command" and would go behind BL straight to SB. Then when DB left and BL took over CS continued to go behind his boss, BL, to SB. CS created his own demis.Tim47SIP said:I don't know why they moved CS or MW...
Amazing how CS and MW broke off their engagement. They were such a cute couple. I wonder if Chromer will be allowed to keep the ring. At least MW is a competent pilot. Chromer will have to be spoon fed by some of his buds in the ATR Training Department to get through the program. 100 watt socket with a 10 watt bulb. I hope no one is foolish enough to trust him--he would sell his soul to get back into management.Texx said:Yeah, he and MW "were" friends also....
And as for the "fine pilot", well most FO's say different.
