Fenestron Posted June 19, 2006 Report Share Posted June 19, 2006 the funny thing is that engineer errors are usually found on the ground before any problem arises, and that's thanks to the second set of eyes that should be looking things over. now turn that around and let the engineer flog along with you on your runs and suddenly the pilot mistakes become more evident. it's easy to hide small errors when you're all alone, nobody see's that slight overtorque/overtemp, nobody see's that too fast landing with the bobble and bounce, nobody sees....I could go on and on. Nobody is infallible, that's why a DI is your best defence and two pilots are required during high stress, workload jobs. Anyone want to continue with the "well, I had an engineer do...." or an engineer go "well I once had a pilot...."? go right ahead, it just shows your maturity as a team player....
