And I hope they do. I hope Gulfstream Academy is named also. Financial accountability (ie: lawsuit) is the only language these people understand. They pay pilots peanuts, meanwhile the execs earn what?And many will. There will be huge punitive damages awarded in this one. Juries, if it gets that far, don't like gross negligence.
Just saying, for what it is worth-MONEY is the only language they listen to. Time to talk BACK to them in MONEY.
Fair question. I will give a fair answer, from the heart (Miss USA 2009 jokes aside...)Just saying, for what it is worth-
You have a lot of animosity towards Colgan and that crew. I don't know why, but you do.
On this forum I've gone so far as to play recess sleeper: I invited a "tough CJC guy" to come whip my arse in LGA during one unimpressive exchange. That was simply brouhaha. The fact I'd stomp a mudhole in that guy's arse notwithstanding...
This event affects all of us. I'd never wish this particular kind of hardship on anyone. It HAPPENS, and anyone with a shred of perspective knows it.
So what peeved you about them? Why would you own them? Are you above reproach?
You seem reasonable, I just want to know what event truly torqued you about this.
The FAA can't be sued.And I hope they do. I hope Gulfstream Academy is named also. Financial accountability (ie: lawsuit) is the only language these people understand. They pay pilots peanuts, meanwhile the execs earn what?
MONEY is the only language they listen to. Time to talk BACK to them in MONEY.
Expect the FAA to get sued too ("how could the government let this happen..." etc etc).
Maybe, just maybe, a rare legit lawsuit will serve as a wake-up call to all parties involved.
.......In my opinion, two Part 121 pilots should not have failed to catch an approaching stall....
.....or forgotten to set flaps for takeoff or lost situational awareness in the mountains of South America or tried to beat a thunderstorm to the airport or attempted to takeoff covered in snow or flown a perfectly good airplane into the everglades, yadda yadda yadda. I guarantee you none of those crews set out with those outcomes in mind.
Your "it can't happen to me" armchair QB judgemental attitude is far more dangerous than any lack of proficiency that crew might have had.
Uh, Nope, haven't done that one yet.
Uh, neither had this crew, up until that point. Again you seem to be implying it would never happen to you.
