It's obvious he's not flying 121 jets, why try to insist he should be complying with 121 regulations and jet procedures?

Hence my acknowledgment of that and my bad assumption. Not insisting he do anything of the sort.

Oh really? You need to review your post, even after acknowledging that he probably wasn't flying 121, you still continued on to make your snotty, condescending comments about not calculating landing distance and assuming it was ok after the fact.

Are you really trying to claim that this:

sounds like you just decide after you land if you were okay by what taxiway you make. To each his own.
wasn't intended to be denigrating and a backhanded way of implying that he should be doing performance calculations. ?

TOTD goes to the guy in an RV4 that was doing his run up ON THE RUNWAY and made us go around.

Apparently he hadn’t read the NOTAMS since 2016 and missed the fact that the hold short lines were pushed back and was no longer the “safety area” he still insisted existed.

Okay - valid critique. Bad assumption on my part with a worse delivery.

Look you clown. If your company allows you to ignore manufacturer flight manual ops limits and do whatever you want, then have at it. I don't have that option nor did any other 121 airlines I worked for.

Regardless of thermals or tailwinds that turn to headwinds - If I'm looking at more than a 15 knot tailwind when I cross the threshold, I'm not allowed to land. I value my job, my license and the safety of our crew far more than being able to come on to APC and try to impress everyone with my war stories of crazy winds and scary neighbors. I'm not interested in comparing war stories from another life. Now I get stuff from A to B safely while complying with the restrictions my employer and aircraft manufacturer have imposed on me.
Sub Saharan Afrika. MSA 13000’, at war with neighboring country. I respect Mr. Boeing’s limitations. Landing with a tail wind happens. Having the info before commencing an approach is pilot s$&t. Call me Bozo. I’ve flown an approach with a tailwind below 1000’ that transitioned to a head wind on final. We knew this. We asked. I’m in economy comfort right now, domestic DH. I can regale all who will listen to more sky god stories so long as Gogo inflight WiFi and moderators allow. How are Syracuse overnight anyhow?

This guy was the crown jewel of tools.

Why? Besides LGA and ATL, where are they required?
