Lots of places... One of my proudest (hey at least I admit it) new FO moments was clearly communicating the presence of an aluminum can bouncing around in the safety zone right in front of the #2 engine in time for the CA to shut the motor down before we shelled out the motor. He was probably going to shut it down anyhow but maybe he shut it down earlier? Who knows, but I'm taking credit for it. It's the little victories when you're a probie. Like getting in and out of LGA without getting teased on ground, or going a whole 4-day without making a PA on ops freq or calling for push over the PA.

Small victories. Maybe tomorrow will be slightly less tool-ish.

My brain was issued by the company too. Says so right on the label.

Maybe it's also a bit like why the USAF doesn't permit LAHSO... It benefits everyone except the crew that's put at risk doing the landing, increases the chance of botching the landing or violating the LAHSO clearance, etc. Let someone else absorb that risk or build another runway.

Not being snarky, I understand that accepting LAHSO is part of being a good neighbor at an over-capacity airport but it puts the risk of high volume ATC ops right in the cockpit of the LAHSO participant. I can totally see why any particular company might refuse to accept that risk.

Any US 121 carriers have the LAHSO in their OPs Specs?

I accidentally transmitted on guard over California a few days ago. The first person to tell me “on guard” was appreciated. The other 6 aircraft who in rapid succession, spring loaded to tell me “you’re on guard” are awesome.

When ATC asks for your Mach or Airspeed stop responding with, “What do you need?” They’ll tell you if they need something different. The rest if us don’t need to hear four more unnecessary words because you think it’s cool to respond with that ridiculous phrase.

In your opinion, probably in the minority, its not cool to enquirer with ATC what they need. Monitor guard, and make sure those Ray Bans are clean and shiny.
