I dont know anyone with more than 1500 hours that has such a simple minded view of this profession. You know what they say..."God protects fools and drunks!"
A lot....not alot.
Yes 16,000 hours+. Two engine failures. A list of other mechanical emergencies, and medical emergencies. I have never left a plane on the runway.
I just got my lastest issue of Airline Pilot magazine. The quote on the front cover from Capt. Robert Buck is appropriate....
"My heroes are the unknown, unheralded airline pilots who fly without incident or accident..."
I guess at FedEx they dont use that motto.
Now without an arguement, do you have a list of airlines that your company cannot travel you on? If so, who is on the list?
