DDG is a useful inflight reference because it may give additional insight into the effects of the failure on other systems.

Pilots at Swift, or any Airline, referring to MEL/DDG's inflight to answer an abnormal aircraft systems indication is an indication of poor training. Knowing "too much" is NEVER a problem. Making bad decisions, poor airmanship and having little to no training provided by your Airline is THE problem and a RED FLAG for the FAA. Sad to see colleagues have these kind of discussions, in public, where they literally make fools of themselves.

Maybe I should have said thinking you know more than what the book says is a problem.

Also, let me make it VERY clear. The POH is used for indications that occur at ANY time. The MEL at Swift is critical as a cross reference because there is no EICAS or MX guy at 90% of the airports we fly to. So if youre doing a 7 day charter, youre going to want to know what to plan on down the road. Swift doesnt have dispatchers, so once MX Control okays a restriction-itís up to the PIC to confirm performance expectations and prevent deviation from a clause. Dont let your cushy airline pilot experiences with ACARS and digital writeups and aerodata computations fool you. A pilot is authorized to use whatever is at his reach to better reference a failure or warning. None of that means the MEL is being used in flight for placarding and bandaging.

SWIFT IS NOT LIKE ANY COMPANY YOU HAVE EVER HEARD OF. THE OPSPECS HERE ALLOW FOR SO MUCH MORE THAN EVER KNOWN.

All this further emphasizes the point to take the most cautious course of action when experiencing an abnormal flight state.

And FWIW I didnt like TiredSoul either....until I realized he aint never lied🤷🏽*♂️

Once again, I wholeheartedly invite any of you pilots wanting to come to Swift-to list for the jumpseat in MIA, get a firsthand look at what this place is all about.
If you are going to throw mud around the barnyard, at least get your facts straight. ALL the USAir birds came with steam gauges because that is how they were ordered by USAir. SWA birds were steam gauge to begin with. The Alaska birds have EFIS, just like one of the original Swift planes (803).

You stated that Swift was converting EFIS birds to steam gauges to save money. That is certainly a cost they aren't going to insure

I think it was Piedmont who was the launch customer for the 3/400 in '84 who ordered all with steam guages. Of course they became US Air birds . The CP was afraid of his guys transitioning to a glass cockpit. In 84 there were still guys who had been with company since the YS11, martin 404 days .

I heard that one of the large freight operators bought every 75/76 ADI HSI tube they could and are keeping them warehoused. Most 75/76ís are getting STCíd with new glass panels.
