  1. That’s were on Floats Planes it’s a bit easier to ferret out the BS artists. Just ask them to taxi out in a little bit of a breeze and watch them dock again. Hard to fake that without experience.
  2. “Pucker Factor” trumps “meeting the parameters” at times.
  3. reverse thrust cannot be selected unless the forward thrust levers are in IDLE - reverse thrust lever is blocked at reverse idle until related thrust reverser is more than 60% deployed - movement into reverse thrust engages locking pawl preventing forward thrust lever from moving - terminating reverse thrust removes the locking pawl and restores forward thrust lever movement ability - reversers are electrically controlled, hydraulically operated - battery switch must be ON - engine fire handle must be down - NG aircraft must sense on-ground or Capt or FO's RA < 10 ft (3 m) - MAX aircraft must sense on-ground or Capt or FO's RA < 6 ft (1.8 m When landing on a dark and dirty night etc, most of us tend to yank on those levers with all sorts of enthusiasm trying to get this thing into reverse well before these conditions are met.
  4. No conspiracies here. Just another WJer who is slowly feeling a little less cynical with all this time away from the job. Hence, I’m feeling like talking about aviation again. PS This time off has been the best thing that has happened to me in quite some time.
  5. The rumour for this has been going around for over a year now. So they finally pulled the trigger, and as per “The Shock Doctrine”, now’s the perfect time for them I guess.
  6. Twelve years with the company and just received my lay-off as of June 1st. Anyone need a float pilot out there?
  7. Or maybe..... This is just a plan to ferret out the conspiracy, and Anti Vax type nuts, and people who like to find real world instances that align with their paranoia and then deem it to be true. And once outed, these people will be rounded up and given to the Aliens for mass anal probing (remember when that was a thing?)
