I think you may be a tad touchy. I always tell any jumpseater to speak up if unsure of anything including clearances. Most stay quiet but occasionally they might ask about a clearance. That is what I want them to do.

Unless he had an obnoxious attitude it seems like he was just trying to be a team player. But I wasn't there so perhaps not.

So if someone speaks up and questions any clearance, right or wrong you immediately belittle them and ruin CRM in the cockpit? Even if the guy was wrong at least he said something instead of drooling on himself and possibly on you or your FO.
Instead you could check with ATC and verify the clearance and see what they really wanted.

In the not too distant past, I had a CA tell me to just sit down and **** on my ride home. It's amazing what one can put up with to just get the hell home.

Says the guy who wrote he'd squawk 7500 and call the police if a jumpseater sat in a pilot station seat during a plss break.

That's the best you could do? Here's one for you - what do you get when you cross a corrupt lawyer with a crooked politician?

I wish she and cardiomd would fly off into the sunset together in his Bonanza.

I'm not sure vagabond said he did any of what you say he did.

Yeah, what's wrong with cardiomd? He's a pilot and has a unique perspective being an MD. We need a little less groupthink around here.

Me too. But maybe he is referencing the fact that the Bonanza is nicknamed "the doctor killer."
