  1. So this dude was endorsed for a CFI checkride? Are you kidding me? I hope he never gets to be an instructor to rack the hours for his 1500 and mess up a real jet with real passengers.

  2. What an a@@...he has more experience and instead of getting on the radio and saying "he partner, you might want to land in the wind on the other side" he videos?? We are in trouble now when aviation has the "world star" mentality

Personal attacks and hate speech directed at the NTSB investigators, FAA investigators, Designated Pilot Examiners, Kathryn, as well as other members of the aviation blog, are unacceptable because they are not constructive.
