2- Bad landing at SFO (difficult airport to fly into)
I read in Flightaware comments that they believed that pilot was using auto pilot to land at SFO - dat's dumb
That's not what happened at all, it was a case of terrible airmanship poor CRM and...

Most professionals, aside from maybe doctors, are not drug tested anyway.
I'm a pilot and I've been random drug tested twice this year and pretty much everyone involved in aviation (mechanics, flight attendants, rampers) gets drug tested as well and I don't see that ever changing...

I have one, the room where I put it has a pretty week wifi signal so the stream was a little slower then I anticipated but once I spruce it up it'll be nice. On that subject does anyone have any recommendations for a good wifi booster?...

Ive been shopping around for a laptop for a while and I settled on the Lenovo y70. Pretty good deal for the price.

Xplane is more realistic but Microsoft flight sim is more fun because of all the missions you can participate in. My flight school had both and I found myself using xplane more then MS solely because I wanted some good practice when I was working on my instrument rating....

I was up in maine last month and played with a rental set, they were the new Adams Idea irons and they were extremely easy to hit. I plan on buying some as soon as I can find a good deal for them....

I debated both of those as well as the sonata, fusion, and accord. I chose the accord in the end because the Korean cars lose value quickly and I really liked the interior of the accord. ...

I didnt know we had any pilots on the board, Who do you fly the triple for? Im with expressjet on the ERJ and I love when we deadhead on the 777, I used to get one between IAH-EWR every now and then but it seems like most of the hub to hub stuff is bus and 73/75 nowadays....

If your connecting flight is in another terminal, you have to go back through security. Dumbest shite ever. And you have smelly, hairy Yankees everywhere[/quote]
That's not true, there is a bus that runs between each terminal. I will agree with you t...

I fly for united express and today has been a cluster because today is the implementation date for FAR 117 which is the new rest rules for crews. Most airlines (mainly the regionals) are understaffed or didn't understand the impact so today has been a cluster to say the least. If you're pissed ask f...

I'm towards the end of a marathon game that I've been playing for 2 weeks now, spent over 10 hours on it already and I probably have another 2-3 left. This game has so many ways you can win, especially if you get the new expansion, that as soon as you finish a campaign you will launch right into the...

I haven't touched it in over 2 months. City sizes are way too small, and the city specialties/connections didn't work like they were supposed too. I think they've fixed some of the bugs but I still won't pick it back up until they give us bigger cities. Stay away in my opinion....

I think they actually crashed just short of the runway, and the rumor is fuel starvation. This is a pretty terrible airline that is banned by the EU so maybe change your travel itinerary if you're thinking about going to Indonesia with them. ...

Picked up the game, activated it through Origin and it wouldn't let me install or play it. Apparently a lot of people are having this problem because my wait time to speak with an EA rep is 935 minutes and they just put out this release: https://help.ea.com/article/temporary-origin-issues-pc-mac.
