Here's a fun one. Came through KCM this morning in civvies with just a small backpack and about a week's worth of stubble. TSA is doing random bag screenings at the checkpoint and I get selected to open my backpack and let them swab it. When the TSA guy finished he hands me back my bag and says "Thanks Cap". Didn't correct him.

Thereís a difference between someone calling and identifying from the Chief Pilots(emphasized) office(said quietly) and me assuming heís the CP and a non aviator calling all pilots Captain. One is ego and the other is respect.

The 737 MAX. Too complex to fly. Thatís a funny one. Itís a 1950ís plane with new TV screens.

What about the 767 that just went down? Too complex?

Heís not being sarcastic about the fact that he thinks planes have become too complex to fly. A 737 MAX. Too complex to fly. Iíve flown the 737-200,300,500,700,800,900,9MAX. They are the same damned jet with newer TVís. Is the 767 that just crashed too complex to fly?

If he was suggesting that pilots need more training and more stick and rudder skills, fine. But I for one am a BIG fan of the automation improvements in modern jets. Planes are VASTLY safer than they were 30 years ago.

Planes are safer but that does no good with a loose nut on the yoke. I am not a Trump fan but you guys are taking it out of context for political reasons and that is sad. And for the poster wanting the thread banned.. That is the modern day equivalent of running to your mommy because you disagree with someone.

Look at AF447... lots of factors there, but let's be honest, it was the automation and lack of stick and rudder skills that doomed that flight.

I thought pilots were a conservative bunch. I had no idea there were so many liberal snowflakes

No crap, the guy asking the mods to take down the thread is a perfect example of the snowflakes. I don't like what he said, it hurt my feelings, take it down! What a Cry baby. I guess cry baby doesn't work anymore, what a snowflake.

I think itís more about mods being lenient when it aligns with their own political view.
