The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Let's hope he's got a better grasp of 'captaincy' than his Old Man and doesn't over-rule the more experienced bloke beside him. Hints such as "Please don't try landing this aircraft downwind on a short runway with peat-bog for an over-run, your Highness." are meant to preclude embarrassing headlines.
Congratulation, Sir. Well done.
That said. I've lost my midget. P'raps you could put in a word?
Well done to Prince William of Wales! And he added a real rescue run to the day.
Must be a bit odd when someone realizes that a prince is the helo driver.
As long as one doesn't let on. It simply isn't done.
Well if I was in deep doo doo in a small boat at sea and I needed helicopter rescue I wouldn't care who was driving it.
If a septic like me knows what the boy looks like I would guess that most hominy sorts would.
So he's become a taxi driver for knobheads stuck on Crib Coch?
As long as the Pilot can read the CWP properly he'll be fine.
Excellent he can now sign off and get a job with the newly privatised Air Sea Rescue service.
F-me! So HRH gets away with not even a mention while all the blame is piled on the captain and the nav?
The Captain remains responsible no matter who is driving. This applies at sea also - which is why captains of ships under the nominal control of port authority pilots twitch like sh'=house rats throughout. Having said that he complied with the maxim that goes: Any landing you walk away from is a good one.
True that. Still, seemed a bit unfair..
Turning to HRH in the ensuing pile of teddybear fluff and tyre-smoke and saying "You ****!" isn't much of a career-enhancer either.
