There's a reason people call it the Daily Fail.

I have heard that they have cross decked a few navy pilots that lost carrier rating and transferred them to the USAF when They were good pilots but just could not take carrier landings any more due to stress.

I also know that the government can draft non ex military pilots, along with doctors and nurses in war time.
They can also draft truck drivers during national emergencies.

I was reading a thing today where someone was talking about their unit having QA all over their ass for every little thing. So they started doing everything exactly by the T.O., which led to everyone wanting to know why it took up to 45 minutes to turn power on to a jet. As soon as QA was gone, they were back to doing it the "right" way.

There's a balance between doing things the expeditious way, and doing them by the book, which is what most people don't get. You can fix the jet quickly, and keep it flying safely, without being stupid about it.


It reminds me of the old saying "A checklist is a guide for a wise man, and a Bible for a fool".
