Great job, Max. Now I don’t want to fly on my 3 hour flight to Istanbul, then 10 hour back home.

Joking. I would never not want to fly.


maybe for awareness?

Interesting to see all the situations that pilots have to train for being put to the test in the real world. Two events in particular stuck out to me:

  1. Another drone incident. How much longer do you think it will be until drones are outlawed for recreational use?
  2. The incapacitated pilot incident. I’ll have to do some more looking in to this one but I’m curious as to what the procedure is for the crew and what ended up happening to the pilot. How many crew members are on the flight deck of a B748?

What is this?😜

@Chad_Garnett… The drone Incidant has been reclassified as a non-Incidant the last I read it was a drifting plastic bag. The incapacitated pilot, poss heart attach. Max

@Winner580… “Dooritis” Trade term routinely refers to an “Open Door/ Hatch Warning” in this case a cargo door. Max

Who changed the title?

You 6 minutes ago.

haha. very funny. Before that, someone spelt incident and accident wrong.


Really, you are the only one who shows up when checking the editing widget.

@Narroc_Wim@Sturmovik… Ok, Max spells phonetically. Old mans habit, just lazy, and the Pad spell check sucks! Thanks for the correction Bill. Tune in tomorrow for my spelling, cap and punctuation error 1000+. LOL

That’s why we have professional crews that can handle all of these situations. While it seems like there are a lot of incidents, consider the amount of flights every week and you’ll realize that there are very little incidents.
