reply to nightmare_david...
I was the one who made the joke about skiing....only because (decades ago) I used to live in Denver...
For the record, the only time I've been to the UAL training center, in Denver, was when I was interviewed....to be a pilot...at UAL. This was 1979!
I was in process,,,then the AAL DC-10 crashed, in Chicago....all DC-10s were grounded, and UNITED sent me a letter saying my application was
Eventually, after all the drama...I got hired at Continental. Much better airline, in My humble opinion.
nightmare....I'm trying to respond to all of your points, but my memory is failing, since I didn't 'quote' you.
I think you questioned the validity of the Simulator 'experiment'???
If you question it, then tell us, the ATS audience, exactly WHY you question....what, specifically do you question. I've already pointed out that it
could be sullied by the observers, before they get the chance to fly....as they stand there and see the first 'contestant'....that is the nature of
BUT, I also want EACH participant to be in the same briefing room, BEFORE the Simulator session is initiated.....to get the same indoctrination, as
everyone else....to see the pictures of the panels....the forward Instrument Panel, the center console, and the Overhead Panel....to feel comfortable,
as the Hi-Jackers no doubt did.....when they used their considerable wealth, as wired to them by Al-Queda, to buy time in a Simulator....
We already know that 'Springer' and 'Craekeur' are on board.....and I think that's appropriate. My special gal, 'greeneyedleo'....I've talked
to her, and I think she should be in too!! She's moving do Denver, so it's easy!!
Need only one more....JL won't come....but he will watch, I am sure. Zorgon? Can you fly???
NO....we need a pilot who has about 300 hours.....there are a few on ATS who qualify....Mike? Are you seeing this?!?
(Mike is in Florida....and, though he used to be in the airline biz, not now....so he'd have to buy a ticket....I'm guessing....maybe he will see
this, and chime in....)
I've given Springer my real email...at least I think I did....will do it again, just in case.
Somebody, somewhere thought that UAL is the wrong place to go....because they had two airplanes Hi-Jacked on 9/11...so, by this 'logic', they are
complicit in the 'cover-up'.....BALONEY!!!!!!!
OK,.....I've taken THIS thread so far off the rails, I should get a million 'warnings'.....in the B767, it's the RED 'Master Warning'....and it
is loud...it goes ... well, I can't reproduce it here....it is a 'Hi-Low' siren....when we get into the Sim, you will hear it....
ps....other warn, in the B767....is the 'Master Caution'....it is Amber....and it is four 'beeps'.....beep beep beep beep!
Just to get your attention.....
I was typing, and my post disappeared...
hmmm....anyway, guess I was running off at the mouth! On another thread, but was pertinent....so be it!!
