"they go through the motions, repeat the power points as fast as they can and go home," recalled zaite, who was hired with just 507 flight hours, 25 hours of it on multiengine aircraft like the twin turboprops at commutair.
I don't understand why Continental doesn't drop these carriers. I mean it's their own image that is going to suffer... It's their logo painted on the tails of these planes.
I know, it's all about money!
Ask any pilot at Commutair and they will tell you what a dufus this guy was. He used to show up to work in grey dress pants rather than navy blue. The chief pilot put a stop to that one. He also used to wear mtc gloves and run his hands all along the airplane while he did his walk around. It was very creepy to watch. There are plenty more fun facts about him, but those are my two favorite.
not surprising....dude looks retaaaaaahdid!!!
Again, shows how out of touch some of our mainline "brothers" are. A big computer game, right....this guy obviously has either never flown or forgotten what the cockpit of an old turboprop looks like.
