But this is one thing I’m a strong supporter of. So, please stand with me to support the very important Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) program. These pilots, who train on their free time for no compensation, are the last line of defense on our airliners. They are deputized officers who are authorized to use firearms to defend against violent acts on planes. Please follow the link to send a letter to congress & oppose the Administration’s plan to eliminate it. The safety these crew members provide is vital. http://bit.ly/Z3Qf4K
“Cleared for takeoff.”
anytime I go flying over water my engines make strange noises…
Flew in this today on a sortie and NEVER will again it’s a freaking oven in that old plane, it would’ve been fine at like 5,000 feet but we were just at 1,000 looking for a beacon and it got incredibly hot, especially in that damn flame resistant flight suit.
Got to leave work early in order to go off as CAP 486 off to perform reconnaissance with CAP 254 along the Texas-Mexico Border, assisting the department oh Homeland Security in protecting our borders
