Real Navy pilots don't keep track of the number of carrier landings they have. (I have 201&#128518

Was on DL last night to SLC-SEA and the capt came into first class and made the exact same announcement, then made it on the PA a few mins later! 739 Seattle based. I cringed as did the others in front. Most embarrassing PA I've ever heard!

Some are more impressed with themselves more than others. I guess they're legends in their own minds.

He even talked about how much fuel would be burned and what the seat/mile cost or some other ridiculous figure was!

Ah sorry I forgot. You're still sore I burst your little FFDO hero fantasy. Sorry Serena, but you won't have the opportunity to be the savior when the terr-wist bursts through the cockpit door after getting past security, the angry passengers, and the fortified door. The program is much more likely to result in a hole in the side of the plane, leaving the gun somewhere, or creative use by Lubitz or Osbon.

I am close friends in real life with a few transport captains, and also have numerous aviation professionals as patients I have to see every 6 months for their special. They are great people and we have a great relationship. Fortunately I've never encountered anybody as idiotic and childish as the noisemakers on this forum, particularly the wannabes here (obvious who they are), but can fortunately quickly ignore.

It has been my experience that pilots like to hear medical stories more than I want to hear piloting stories (hopefully not much daily excitement as a civil transport guy...)

Keep in mind cpnjns that a subset of pax eat this up... I am sure he gets a great deal of positive feedback, and the remainder are just too polite and will look down in their books during the briefing.

Indeed. After every checkride back in training the DPE would want to ask me all sorts of questions about medicine. I'm happy to oblige as long as I don't have to be anywhere (and got the cert )

There are a lot of flying doctors still. At least a dozen in one of the hospitals where I work, that I know about. Flying is a great gift and should be encouraged by pros, pro-ams, and amateurs alike. Remember, you (and to a smaller extent even me for GA) represent the profession / pilots and the public perception etc.

Because I heard it two weeks ago in the Mid Atlantic region, and a friend heard it last week down in Florida. Other people have heard it around too. Pretty obvious that it's not a coincidence that this guy is making the same "PA" over guard, all over the East coast by accident.
