Looks like the psychologist missed another one. Was this the psychologist who blew their brains out?

I know it breaks your heart that you didn't get hired:crying:, and that you're just one strike away from more flying and stealing someone else's job!
Heck, everyone got hired somewhere but you. At least you got the whole PFT thing going for you!:laugh:

Maybe Delta gave the guy time off to get his stuff together. I mean, could anyone go through all of that and be ready to fly? At the least it would be very distracting.

Good point....The stress could cause him to land on a taxiway or overfly his destination by several hundred miles...

At the end of the psych eval the doctor was telling me his life story, and was crying as I left. He said I was "his hero." Some of the questions he INTIALLY asked:

When I say Delta, what two words come to mind? My answer: Wind Check.

He then asked what I would do if I farted in a restaurant? My answer: Ask for a wind check.


Bye Bye---General Lee

I think psych is actually doing a good job. Sorry he/she cut you and your buddy. SWA can have him.

SWA hires people who wouldn't run away - they had a big problem with that the first 20+ years. So someone who wouldn't be able to get hired by a better company, after flying 4-6 legs per day with 30 min turns in the same type of airplane, is their prime meat.

Delta has 12000+ pilots now I am surprised with such exposure they are not more in the news.

Or he could have done like this Delta Professional:


Suspect denied bond; prosecutor calls it 'worst case' of family violence she has seen
A Peachtree City woman suffered two broken wrists and a broken toe at the hands of her husband, who also raped her at the couple’s home in the Kedron Hills neighborhood Sunday, according to court documents in the case.
This afternoon Michael William Ellicott, 47, was denied bond on several criminal charges filed in the case.
Assistant District Attorney Lura Landis said this is the worst domestic violence case she has seen in her entire 32 year as an attorney. Landis said she has personally spoken to two members of the community who asked that Ellicott remain jailed without bond because they also were afraid of him.
Landis said neither of those people are related to the victim in the case, and they both will testify when a bond hearing is held in Superior Court on the rape charge.
Ellicott was denied bond in the case by Fayette County Magistrate Charles R. Floyd Jr. Only Superior Court judges are allowed to consider bond on violent charges such as rape.
The incident occurred over a period of time Sunday at the couple’s home, listed at 209 Portico Place, according to arrest warrants filed in the case.
Ellicott is charged with rape, three counts of aggravated battery (family violence), aggravated assault (family violence), false imprisonment (family violence) and two counts of cruelty to children in the third degree. The cruelty to children charges are because the violence occurred in front of their two children, according to arrest warrants.
Ellicott’s attorney, Allen Turner, said his client has never been arrested before and argued that he is not a flight risk. Turner said he would be willing to surrender his client's passport.
Ellicott is a pilot at Delta Air Lines, and the company will be looking into the matter, a spokesperson said.
In addition to denying bond, Floyd ordered that Ellicott may not contact the victim nor any of her family members, even in a phone call from the jail.
Floyd said he would revisit the bond matter at a later date should Ellicott gain a bond on the rape charge from a Superior Court judge.
A company spokesperson noted that Ellicott is a first officer, which is the lowest rank of pilot at the company

You still pretending to be a SWA pilot? Unemployment must be a bitch. If you need any help finding a job, you can always apply here!
Let us all know how the job search goes.

Be careful, on that unemployment salary, you can't afford another username account!;)
Take care buddy!

Let's say the psych. eval is 99% effective... pretty good, right?

Well, that still could mean 120 nut jobs floating around at Delta.
