Or say anything you haven't heard before, for that matter? They've got an agenda, they want bigger, more comfortable planes with more experienced pilots.Did the writer ever make a point?
The regionals should have the ATP as a minimum requirement, not just the written.
Maybe if the kiddies didnt show up to fly thier RJ's with rings, bracelets, back pack, iPods, spiked hair, wearing their sunglasses on the back of thier heads and actually knew how to wear a uniform. The general public would get over the "kids in the cockpit" syndrome.
Hell, even lie to the passengers. When they ask how long you've been flying for, reply "I've been out of the Navy or Air Force for 4 yrs now"
I think, if a passenger boards an RJ and says "I thought this flight was going to be on a jet," they should be arrested and charged under 121 CFR "interfering with a crew member."
ha ha that's classic...I fly for a fractional and airline every week ...and yes A LOt of RJs ,And turboprops....I have the utmost confidence and respect for all you regional pilots , for your ability and the amount of crap you guys put up with......Unfortunately accidents do happenHad someone make that comment while waiting on us to take him to FLO. I told him the next flight was a jet and he should ask to be re-booked if he wanted to avoid the prop. He got re-booked. I wasn't there to see the reaction when the next Dash 8 pulled up..
