Having read some of this information and news reports posted - who could not care ? I realize some of members on here have a lot more experience than me in this industry…I’m only a 2/m nobody.
I can safely attest that I have had the pleasure of working with pilots within the US and overseas - as many on here most likely have. The majority are very professional, but have noticed a few times over the years here and there that some seem to show their ass - thinking they are all that. Wheather its drug induced - who knows?
I care - just as I would care if it was discovered that the school bus driver bringing my kid to school each day was on any of these cocktale prescriptions…let alone a fellow watch partner or a mate onboard, captain…or a pilot. Who the hell would not ?
It is ashame how one lunatict can paint this end of the industry by his indulgences - but maybe some better oversight will come about because of this incident. Apparantly - it’s long overdue. A lot of the information links on these posts here are seem to be very forthcoming and obvious.
