sucks to be that guy, no more promotions for him
It says that it wasn't his fault though, it says that the maintenance crew didn't install a seal on a turbine blade or something like that which caused it to crash. Is his career still pretty much over even though technically it wasn't his fault?
i think that was in reference to the other shaw aircraft. it said they'd be investigating this one.
but still, i'm curious as well why this would end his career if it's determined that it wasn't his fault.
That was the other aircraft, this accident is still under investigation.
+20 mil down the drain because of shoddy maintenance, there isn't much room for error on a single engine aircraft.
when flying in a plane i feel so much safer when i have a chute on my back, flying on a commercial airliner doesnt feel right until i have a few alcoholic drinks
it doesn't matter whose fault it is when you fuck up a multi million dollar piece of equipmeny. if i crash a helo, and its not my fault. nothing will happen to me, and i mean nothing. no promotions, no awards, nothing until my ets, and by then i'll just get out cause i'm pissed i can't get promoted
I dont think that hold true for everyone. On my last boat, we had a couple of pilots that have had to bail,it sucks to hear"plane in the water" over the 1 MC.
After it happen the first time, I was talking to a pilot that had it happen to him in the past. I know he made 0-4 shorty after being on our boat.Talking to him is how I found out they even have a club for those that bail and live.
I bet that felt like the longest two hours that guy has ever had.
