Superior pilots have superior judgment and superior skills. By use of the former they avoid the need to use the latter.
If pushed I’d be on an hour holding fuel extra and diversion to Birmingham (down the runway there). Possibly even a banker in Northern Europe.
@Nicky swango , thoughts?
And if forced out of retirement fly a helicopter and come in at 90 degrees to the runway into wind and hover off for a nice cup of tea.Thoughts. I like your plan very much but TBH I prefer mine which is stay retired and hence avoid having to make decisions on things like fuel and alternates anymore….
"Sort of."BTW Rich, how are you doing these days. I know you don't say much about your health, but quite a few of us out here do care. Sort of.
Cheers mate. Yeah, I'm doing well thank you, how about yourself? I am finally over the blasted Covid and my mental health is on the up. Body is still banjaxed though!
