Obviously you’ve been in this industry for about 7 minutes if you haven’t had a client pressure or try to pressure you into doing something that you shouldn’t, like telling you “well the other pilot got us into that spot so you should be able to”

Then once you get them in. The other guy did it faster. You’re hundred dollar turns(aka recon to pilots) are Killing my budget lol

On occasion, i like to spin it this way: I could likely land there 9 out of 10 times too. Did the other pilot explain what happens the other 10% of the time?

Enough shite displayed... topic is closed..

And this is why pilots die!  because some j3rk off tries to impress the clients flying in cr4p weather, not to mention -2 and wet coastal snow so let’s put the icing factor aside.  Then another pilot

Bwhahahaha so.... if anybody was wondering if this dudes a f@ckin idi0t. I guess here’s your proof.

Nearly 20 years and I have been there many times.  It’s just a good example that everyone knows about and it’s much more clear than the “well the other guy did it” argument.

My favourite, "I probably have more time in these things than you do".

I had a customer say the above pretty much word for word.

I looked him in the eye and with a straight face I lied and said,

"you do know that pilot is dead now"

He never questioned me again all summer.

I had a customer on a production job say I was OK but then proceeded to tell me about the fastest most talented pilot he ever had doing the job. I asked the customer why isn't that guy flying you now, his response... "well he crashed and killed himself flying". 🙄

  It's a difficult thing the pressures associated with this job. I had the unfortunate experience of going IMC once in a 212. Only by the grace of god did I make it out of that situation without bending any gear. I wasn't long doing my IFR rating following that! After loosing one of my closet friends in the industry this year to an accident involving weather related factors. I felt maybe by posting the ATC audio clip, others may avoid learning the hard way of the dangers surrounding unexpected VFR flight into IMC conditions.

This paragraph is as old as me (86).

In questionable weather and haze that you can get in the summer months, you should not be any more than 500 ft. AGL, that will give you an out, to do a quick stop and reverse course. I personally got caught in  that situation and almost flew into a thunderstrom.

Landed, waited and then proceeded. It is a good idea to practice smooth quick stops with out manhandling the A/C.

Donnot at any time take comments or pressure from the company, the client or any passenger with any thing about your flying ability.

Remember, everybody on board is counting on your ability to get were they wish to go, SAFELY.

YOU ARE NOT ONLY THE CAPTAIN,YOU ARE THE BOSS AND DECISION MAKER,COME **** OR HIGH WATER

He was legal the whole time. He had 1/8 of a mile to the front 1/8 to the back 1/8 to the left and an 1/8 to the right. Even us pilots know that equals a half mile. He better of had 500 hrs and all that special training they give ya though or to the moon Alice!
