Respect is a two way street, and if I have a competent, hard working, and reasonably easy to deal with Driver, I'll give them all the respect in the world. But the guys who are slobs, don't do their own preflight on the machine, and laze about when setting up or tearing down a staging area, no way, no how. I don't expect it to be any different when Pilots look at me or any other AME.

post-824-1204596370_thumb.gif Beautiful weather we're having...

 

Get well soon, AR!

 

 

Thanks TQN, feeling better already...

 

You guys crack me up! I'll say it once again, "I'm NOT crusty....!!!!" Lol....

 

Really, I'm not.

 

Offset, may I suggest you find yourself some better pilots to work under? The old ******* who taught me to long line accepted "nothing less than taking the wallet from the mechanic's back pocket while he's bending over to lick his balls...." His words, not mine... Can't say as I've actually pulled that particular scenario off just yet, but I've seen some pretty good hook swingers out there over the years.....

 

AR

I'm NOT crusty.... Jeeze, what's with you $**^@'n people anyway?

TS you forgot about the cowboys out there that drive the *&^% out of the machines :stupid: ie: canyon running, doing the job it seems no one else can (can we say overtoque) ect., ect............endangering everyone, not just themselves and their pax, but the next poor crew that gets in that machine......... thank god for tattle tail boxes :punk:

Or how about the pilot who, on his way out the tent on the day the fixed wing flies into camp to crew change him out, suddenly "remembers" all the snags that might have kept the ship on the ground for a day and cost him some flight time. Then, having earned a portion of his "800 hours at the wrong end of a longline", he rides off into the sunset leaving that list of snags for the next guy and the engineer to live with.

 

That kind of pilot I'd cheerfully feed his own watch to.

what you do in that case is beat him to the punch....know your machine and it's snags, find them yourself and ground it on him while he's still there. You're not just sleeping all the time are you? Chasing the camp cook around the stove perhaps?

:shock:

Hey Folks!!

Lets ease off on our Pilots a bit EH? I notice that the Pilots are not slagging the Engineers here. Maybe they are a little more polite. Jeez!! Being an Engineer myself do you have any idea how hard it was to say that?? :P:P:P

 

its not because we are polite......its because we really dont care about what they have to say about us :punk:
