Anthony, this presumes that one would know what a three dimensional
radio looked like, how to key a mike, where the switches were
located, all in a real airplane that was actually in the air. Of
course, you have no experience in these matters at all.


Can you imagine Anthony doing a cockpit check in less that twenty
minutes :-)
With the manual open at the correct pages


he'd have to huff O2 just to deal with being outside his apartment

He wouldn't be able to fit his lard ass into the seat, let alone run the
check list. Then, he's probably get to the third item and argue about it.





probably?

I've flown wiht FOs a bit like him. You just have to tell yourself ("well,
if he gets too bad, there'a always the crash axe"

Anthony, you're entirely correct- the pilot should have asked for anyone who
has ever played Microsoft Flight Simulator, rather than another pilot.

By your twisted logic that individual would have done better than a
commercial pilot.

Go figure.

No such announcement was made to the pax. From the actual report:
"Prior to descent, the Commander asked the Incharge Flight Attendant
to go the Passenger Information List (PIL) to see if there were any
flight crew on board who might be available to assist on the Flight
deck for the remainder of the flight. In the event no line pilots were
on board, but one of the Cabin attendants held a Commercial Pilotís
Licence, with a Multi-engine Rating, and a non-current Instrument
Rating. The Commander requested that the Flight Attendant occupy the
right-hand (First Officers) seat for the remainder of the flight to
assist as necessary."

OK, that makes sense.

The pilot may have felt that someone else with piloting experience would be
better at providing assistance than someone with none. *However, in this type
of situation, that isn't necessarily so. *While a trained pilot would almost
certainly not be worse, he might not be better, either. *You need someone who

Thanks for that Mxs. I'll take that on board ( after applying an
appropriate weighting factor)

Your total lack of knowledge of piloting physical aircraft leads you
to a delusional conclusion.

Accident reports involving poor cockpit management don't agree with
you. And a personal slam doesn't constitute a well considered
rebuttal either. I for one would like to know why you think his
response was delusional and without bringing up "sims".

Given that the flight attendant holds a Commercial ticket and has

the
instrument rating (is not current) it can be assumed that she was
capable of running a check list and handling the radio during an
approach and landing...
It is unlikely that she had 767 specific training, but the pilot

knew
the systems and could direct her just the same as if he were giving
dual to a pilot going for the rating...


And the other thing is that landing the jet is not rocket

science...
The cabin pressurization needed to be switched to landing mode...

The
V speeds calculated (automatically displayed on the glass panel and
the pilot knows how to get those)... Flaps and gear at the proper
times - and remember to flare...
Fewer details than landing a pressurized prop twin...


Actually, none of that is true for the 767.


the cabin is automatic, the destination landing elevation having been
set before departure, the V speeds do not come up on Efis on a 767,

they
come from the FMS and are set the old fashioned way with bugs on the

ASI
and the flaps and gear thing is the same with one or two guys.
any large jet can easily be flown single hadned, though. Even the old
ones with FEs need very little doing if everything is working OK.


ya, ya, ya, there are lots more details for the onboard PSU/power/
heating/cooling/etc/ systems, but those can all be dealt with after
landing...


Actually, there's very little to do there in a 767. After landing you
just retract the speedbrakes, pull the flaps up, turn off the xponder
and radar and that's pretty much it.

No harm to have her there. He could have given her some pretty simple
tasks Just to take some of the load off. Even someone like that might be
more work than they save you, though. Depends.

Bertie


Amazing. That sounds remarkably similar to what Mxs said.

What accident reports do you have, that would indicate a pilot in this
situation, would be less likely to do as he was told?

Start with "You need someone who can follow instructions,".

You do realize what this thread is about, and it isn't CRM?

If his post made any sense at all, the copilot would ALWAYS be someone
who knew nothing about piloting, which is a rediculous conclusion.
