And did anyone else notice Captain SULLY fessed up to busting sterile cockpit, with his comment about how nice the Hudson looked?

Funny how the talking heads in congress have not called for his liver on a plate.

Oh well...where's my beer......???

(yes...I know this is a lame thread)

lets see Sully successfully pulls off in the real airplane what nobody can replicate in the sim, nobody dies, he is a hero, and somebody on flightinfo wants to point out how he "busted" sterile cockpit by saying the river was pretty

He was just pointing out potential emergency landing sites. Great CRM.

While he did a good job and he is a hero, he still violated sterile cockpit.

Your confusing Sully with the United Sioux City crew. Pilots have been put in the sim to replicate Sullys senario and the majority of pilots successfully accomplished the same thing. Also, did you notice that Sully hit the water (according to the papers so take this with a grain of salt) nearly 3 times harder then the airbus was designed to hit in a ditching senario. In his defense here, however, most pilots could not ditch within the design limits airbus had built in. Of course who can blame them? Who gets to practice ditching in the sim?
But buscap is correct. Sully violated sterile cockpit. If he had been flying a CRJ the feds would probably be saying that if he hadn't been casually chatting beneath 10,000 then maybe he could have seen and avoided the giant flock of geese.

F*** it!

Because the OP is making a point about the double standard applied to the Colgan accident crew, a regional airline.

Sully made one small comment on the order of stuff said by every crew in every airplane across the country.

Regional airline crews, such as Colgan or Comair in LEX, have at times shown a completely awe-inspiring lack of regard for sterile cockpit and its importance. So bad that it makes my head spin.

It would be a double standard if the outcomes/situations were equal, which they are not.

Violation of the sterile cockpit was contributory to one of the incidents and not the other. Thus why the situations are handled independently.

All of those who have busted "SC" please give up posting on FI, the board would be empty.

Just my little attempt at "Let he who is without sin...blah...blah...blah"

And by the way, success is a terribly unreliable measure of performance unless extrapolated over a proper number of attempts.

Hmm..let's see here...you are in the Slob? Is that right - um - is it Captain..? So you're saying that you have NEVER said anything below 10,000 ft other than REQUIRED CHECKLIST ITEMS, ATC COMMO, OR REQUIRED CALLOUTS, is that correct...?

They were incompetent and killed 49 innocent people, Sully did just what he had to and no-one got hurt, minor difference.
Game, set, match, next.

Nah, it's a double standard because the crews are being held to different standards. The fact that the outcomes were different is irrelevant to the fact that both crews violated the rule.

And I'm not putting Sully down. Personally, I think the whole "sterile cockpit" rule is a joke. Being professional about your responsibilities is more important than some goofy "feel-good" rule.

I have no idea what the Hell your point is.

Someone asked why this thread was in the regional forum. I answered.

Game, set, match, next.
