FPR, it’s very impressive you can guess my identity from only 2 posts. Your guess actually reveals more about your identity than mine.
I have never been charged for a no-show from cancelled flights. Yes, I’ve even had to cancel them because I was sick. If you are charged a no-show, it was because you were scheduled and didn’t show up. Do you know what happens when you’re scheduled at an airline for a flight and don’t show up? The point is not that I have to check my account balance to prove this. Every time I turn a plane back into dispatch my printed receipt gives me the Hobbs, how much my account was charged, and my remaining balance. It’s starring me right in the face that I wasn’t charged for cancelled flights.
And now you’re saying maintenance is being forced to fix broken planes, that is weird. Broken items are not ignored; if you do your pre-flight correctly you should be making sure the plane is airworthy. So were you busting regs on this?
Most of my instructors also give me the brief time. If they miss some here or there, a lot of them will make it up with a free ground session or two. You didn’t get all yours? That’s too bad, so why didn’t you say anything to your instructor about it? You are brave enough to say it here though when you’re anonymous, what a big boy you are.
Your web site, or more accurately web “page” is a start alright. A nice free web hoster, with your brand new anonymous identity attached to it. You need to include a forum on there, so you can hang out in there and live in your land of make believe. This is a real web site: http://cpd.panamacademy.com/
And good luck with the magazine ad, sounds like a great investment for you.
