I am puzzled by being charged with criminal trespass..


I alluded to this earlier.

Access to the ramp areas of an airport is restricted (with very few exceptions) to those that have the appropriate ID for that particular field...it is sometimes referred to as the AOA (Airport Operations Areas). Sometimes the term "airside" for shorthand...varies.

Each airport is given some latitude by the govering bodies (FAA in the USA) and there is no national standard, at least in the U.S. They simply comply with all requirements.

Some airport jurisdictons are a bit more "severe" than others, a bit more strict.

Pilots, because they operate into so many different airports, are allowed (exempted) for areas that are considered the "shadow" of the airplane they are assigned to work, because they must have exterior access. Also, company offices and such, other side of security doors. All for the purposes of doing one's job.

Mechanics, fuelers....everyone even caterers, who are working at specific airports have to have their employee ID (issued by employer) AND the AOA badges too.

Steven Slater had only his JetBlue company badge (seen in the photos plastered all ove the newspapers, by now. REALLY, REALLY stupid, that!!! JetBlue will be smart to now re-design their badges...expensive, too).
~~~~~

Funny (true) story:

Pilots (talking the USA here) have to endure the occasional unannounced "checkride" by the FAA. These are the "Inspectors" who have to meet their quotas, for the airline they are assigned to monitor... often, they have been on personal travel, and then use this authority to "kill two birds", as it were...especially if it's crowded in the cabin, and they might have trouble getting a seat.

We don't like visits from the FAA...everyone knows the old joke...."Hi! I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help!"

Some of them are OK, but some are real pissants....looking for any infraction, no matter how minor. Some are just full of sour grapes...resentful; envious wannabe airline pilots....

Anyway, in Guam (a Territory, so the "same" as being in the States) the airport there is VERY strict. TO THE LETTER! I won't go into more details...but, the fun part is ---- there was this Fed, and he decided he wanted to follow the First Officer on the walkaround. The preflight.

(They are really sort of perfunctory, since the maintenance people do it too, especially more intense for long over-water flights. BUT, it's also a pilot's duty as well, and extra pair of eyes never hurt).

SO...fun part....this Fed, FAA guy? (Yeah...he was hitching a ride eastbound, to Honolulu --- and "working" on the way). Gets nailed by the Airport authorities for not having the AOA badge!!


Took him down a peg.....

Definitely a candidate to be on the watch list, as its a fine line between madness and insanity, btw, would it possible to tell me what are the majority of colors she or he wears to work ?


Navy blue. We have uniforms.

I agree about the fine line, and I think with some people, you can truly sense when it is about to become muddled.

Yea, this poor guy, just had enough. I don't know if I could have handled myself any better if I was hit in the head with a bag and the person didn't even bother to to apologize either. Should have had the air martial arrest her for assault.

I feel for him and have to say. EPIC way to quit a job!

....and....BOOM! goes the dynamite....in record time!!!

Didn't take long for a completely off-base, vile broad-brush attack on entire 'perceived' (and totally in the writer's mind) stereotype.

[sarcasm] What a surprise. [/sarcasm]

Let's replace the phrase "openly Gay" with any other phrase of your choosing, shall we?

Select an attribute that can be used to describe you, or someone close to you....OK...ready, go!!!

(Feel free to use your imaginations.....)





I think the whole gay deal is being downplayed.

How many of you have worked with an openly gay person and experienced a drama queen moment?

After you stop shaking your head up and down in agreement, just imagine these types of people serving openly in the military.

NOT all Gay people are "drama queens"!!!

Try getting over yourself, and your bises for a while...sheesh, it's 2010!! Not 1950!

One only has to watch modern popular media to see MANY examples of "drama" and acting out, by people of both genders, and from all walks of life.

Of course....I guess you think that every heterosexual military person (especially the "males"...'cuz, you know....they're "men"...) is a "saint"? That none of them EVER go off the "deep end"??

Wasn't it a long-time 'argument' that women should not be allowed to serve?? What reasons, again were given back then?.....

Wow! I don't think you are dealing in the same reality that most of the rest of us are.....
