Cirrus's official FAA-approved spin recovery procedure is to deploy the ballistic chute. Sorry, but that's just shady.

lol

Didn't you know? ATC mistakes/assumptions are always the pilot's fault, because ATC never makes a mistake.

Doc's original comment on this, along the lines of "many ('pilots') have no business flying a SR22" was spot on. For any number of reasons.

I'd agree. Especially in the sense that it's probably not the first plane you should learn on.

Yea, well, she was wrong. Remember a lot of controllers you talk to are in training with their instructor sitting right behind them, and get corrected behind the scenes after situations like that. You probably helped her learn an important lesson about approach clearances and speed assignments.

I just needed to stop and rest for a second after checking the oil after captaining my 135 kt high performance machine and gaze into the sky. My next destination? Up to me, and nobody else. My 182 has "Bad Boy" silkscreened on the cowl.

I'm just kidding BTW, I have a MUCH BIGGER WATCH and my epaulets have FOUR stripes. I also have a three bladed prop because I am serious about performance AND considerate of my neighbors. This three-striper guy is indeed a tool.

Flight today to TUL..... Captain made PA on what military aircraft he and FO had flown. Talked about weapons school and importance of FO's dad being his friend. 😎 But the best was him talking about not doing any aileron rolls on the flight today.

When are these guys going to figure out they no longer are in the air force and are now just a number......

Interesting perspective, but realize you are a grizzled airline travel veteran. Many people who don't fly often appreciate this kind of info.

I flew with a Capt who did something similar, and about half the people made positive comments after they got off the 5 hour flight. Many of them thanked us for our service. Others appreciated the humor. Nobody had a negative comment (guess you weren't on the flight.)

Yea, they may have gone over the top, but I nominate you for TOTD, especially for bringing this up ... On Memorial Day weekend!

This has to be one of the two famous guys here. Either a DTW 320 guy or an ATL 88 guy. Its really awkward when he gets a civilian FO. Last time I was with the DTW guy after he got done spewing how great his military career was for 5 minutes he would say, "The First Officer is a civilian trained pilot, but rest assured he is safe even though he is not from the military." Not kidding.
