I usually fly right into the red part of the radar, even if that means going a little bit out of my way. There is less of a chance of having a mid-air in thunderstorms. Statistically, there is less of a chance of a mid-air collision in a thunderstorm than anywhere else in the sky. Safety first ya know.Hey Corbon, I agree with you in some ways, but don't you work for Chautauqua? And since you do. You must have helped lower the bar and then you obviously took off into a level 5 t-storm on many occasion
Hey everybody look it's another one AWAC guy that knows it all. You are probably that same 46 dude that gave me sh!t about taking your job the other day, then gave me sh!t about needing the jumpseat to get home. Remember me? I am the guy that took you home last night without asking a question. Man the look on your face was classic, you thought I would deny you the seat......sorry man I not that cool. I am sure not all of you guys are as bad, but some of you AWAC'ers are a real class act.AWACoff said:Do your manuals allow you to take off during microburst alerts for your takeoff runway..specifically 35kt loss on said runway? Everybody else (Eagle, American, and us) could not. Seemed a bit odd to me.
