Truly, Knockers, I could give a rat's arse if you respect me or not. I definitely do not seek it or even need it. You've got Forum Trolls on BS, who are not even pilots handing out advice to pilots AS IF. You've got guys on here the biggest and most complex helicopter they have flown is an R44, yet hand out advice AS IF they did three tours in Nam flying gunships. YET, none of you kunts and knockers afflicted with Tall Poppy Syndrome EVER STATE, "I am giving all of you this sound advice based on 10,000 hours Night Inverted IFR, in Formation" -or, what ever. You loathe anyone who has done more, in their career. That is your problem. I have known guys who have flown A380 as a Captain or Senior Check and Training Captain. . . Think I am jealous of them? Think I go around gossiping like a bunch of fairy bitches behind their backs? Think I would stab 'em in the back, because I want their job? That is the kind of work you lot do. You have never met me, never flown with me, never seen my credentials, or logbooks, but you have a mouthful to say or gossip about. Speaks volumes about you.0
ldrotorhead, I QUOTE YOU, Mate:
And finally, learn something about the EC135 please. This aircraft has the AP on before the aircraft is even lifted into a hover and is not flown without it being ON.
I provided whatever information in various EC135 Manuals in PDF format, for your edification, particularly.
I do not mind being told I am full of sh!t, just prove it. Show me where it is written. You made the statement. Back it up. If you cannot back it up, just admit you are just one more of these know-nothing know-it-alls. Talk a lot of sh!t, passing it off as expert advice, but cannot provide counter-evidence. You just thought you would take a cheap shot like these other wanksticks, BUT CANNOT BACK IT UP. At least I can provide black and white information that you do not know what you are taking about.
I have known guys like you, during my career, who would swear up and down something was "procedure", or in the S.O.P. or in the Aircraft Manual, but when I asked them to show me, they could not and it was merely their technique. I have flown about 130 different aircraft. I have owned an aircraft as part of my business . . . Let's just say I have studied a lot of aircraft, And, I have studied aircraft I never flew, purely out of curiosity. If and when I get around to contributing something on BS, it is based on personal experience, based on the Regulations, based on an aircraft operator's manual, based on a Flight Crew Training Manual, or some specific reference . . . I just do not throw out unsubstantiated bullsh!t for public consumption and make like it is "Expert Advice".
I will say it for the last time, IF THE AUTOPILOT WAS MEANT TO BE ON PRIOR TO LIFTING OFF INTO A HOVER IT WOULD BE IN: #1 Type Certificate Data Sheet, but it is not; #2 the aircraft Limitation Section of the of the EC135 P2+ Flight Manual, but it is not; #3 the Emergency Procedures, but it is not; #4 the Normal Procedures expanded checklist, but it is not.
I might be a dick, in your small minds, but at least when I write something, I can back it up with evidence and not merely bullsh!t and smartass comments. You lot throw a whole lot of bullsh!t around on this forum and make others believe you are the experts. There are probably low hour pilots reading this forum and hanging every word you write. But, it is mostly bullsh!t, and hardly expert advice.
