Anybody have an idea what the additional day of recurrent training in May called the Global War on Error is? It's on the recurrent schedule in the May bidpacks. I hadn't heard anything through FCIFs and there is nothing on the training and standards page, did I miss something?

Hopefully the first battle in this war will be "O" and the Head of Training informing the crew force about an added day of training. Seems like their motto is " I thought I was wrong once, but I was was mistaken."

Admin FCIF discussing this available now. It even addresses their lack of advising the crewforce about this prior to publishing it in the bidpacks.

This is what happens when the kids from "Super Bad" grow up to run an airline.

Just read through the latest emails/FCIFs on VIPS. I read the GWOE FCIF and thought "That name is kinda f'd up. Not really funny, IMO." Then I read O's most recent email. I really don't care who trademarked it or what the guys background is. I still think the name is kinda f'd up.

Went to the website of the GWOE.

I'm going to withhold judgment of the program until I sit thru a class for 8 hours on a Sunday (I am junior in the seat).

Concur. This "expert's" judgment is immediately brought into doubt through his questionable labeling of what is probably an otherwise excellent product/training method. Registered trademark or not. Cheap advertising/attention-getting gimmick or not.

The sanity check missed this one big-time.

He might have wanted to check out GWOE references before he trademarked it:

Global War on Extremism (http://www.tcf.org/list.asp?type=NC&pubid=964)

Seems fitting somehow, based on recent emails. :p

Stupid name, poorly notified, training added, no rockstar parking, a 3 month vacation on the beach, shoes, ties, bags, whatever.

Guys--we've all got our gripes and I'm putting myself at the head of the list-some of the idiocy here is insane. I understand the frustration that yesterday's emails are generating, but I'm fine with all of it. O just needs a proofer or some better office help. We've got a problem somewhere and we've got to start figuring it out. In the past, we've all known there are some things that are broken, but who was fixing it? Someone's now trying and I'm glad.

I may not agree with the methods of any of it, and I don't, but if it stops guys from getting hurt, killed, violated, etc., then I'm all for it.

Perhaps a better name could have been chosen, but if you are not familiar with Tony Kern, as a professional aviator you should be. He is not perfect in all of his analysis, but usually is spot-on. This might be fantastic, let's not get overly "toe-up" about the stupid name!:cool:

It might be a good thing that we are going to participate in a "program" that will possibly identify and correct things that we do to make our flying safer. Lets hope management does the same on their side of the house; whether it is kept a secret from us or not.

Put it on a DVD, pay me 3 CH to watch it, and use the savings to buy more options.
