Once in a while you come across something funny:

"LESS THAN EXCEPTIONAL ATC HANDLING ON AN APCH INTO AN ARPT THAT HAS NO ROOM FOR ERROR DOES NOT MAKE FOR A HAPPY CAPT"

Here's my favorite:

"...THE CLOWN IN THE SMA WAS BUSTING THE TCA AND PROBABLY HAD HIS TRANSPONDER TURNED OFF. INFLT VIS WAS 3 MI AT THE VERY BEST. I CANNOT BELIEVE SOME COMMIE PINKO IDIOT BONEHEAD WOULD BUST A TCA IN 3 MI VIS..."

When you're REALLY bored you can go to the ASRS database at nasdac.faa.gov and do a keyword search with your favorite curse word or deratoratory name and see what pops up!

Here is one from a female Captain:

"MEN WHO HATE WOMEN DON'T LISTEN TO THEM IN THE COCKPIT. I FLEW WITH A FO WHO EXHIBITED MISOGYNISTIC BEHAVIOR ON THE GND. HE ALMOST GOT US KILLED IN THE AIR. HIS PRINCIPLE OCCUPATION CONSISTED OF PUTTING PORNO PICTURES IN MY MAILBOX. IN FRONT OF EVERYONE IN THE PLT LOUNGE HE WOULD SAY, 'WOMEN ARE JUST FOR SEX AND JUST TO BE USED,' AND WAIT FOR A REACTION FROM ME. IF HE FOUND MY NAME PRINTED SOMEWHERE, SUCH AS ON A UNION SHEET OF PAPER, HE WOULD WRITE THE WORD '•' AFTER MY NAME. THE COMPANY KNEW THAT HE WAS DOING THESE THINGS. THE PROB WAS THAT HE WAS FRIENDS WITH THE CHIEF PLT. OF COURSE NOTHING GOT DONE ABOUT HIS ANTICS. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, WE WERE ASSIGNED TO FLY TOGETHER. WE WERE ENRTE TO SANTA ROSA ON MM/DD/90. THE FEMALE OAKLAND CTR CTLR HAD CALLED OUT TFC AT 1-2 O'CLOCK AND 2 MI. I LOOKED FOR THE TFC BUT HE DIDN'T. WHY SHOULD HE? AS FAR AS HE WAS CONCERNED, I WAS JUST THE BITCH WHOSE MAILBOX HE KEPT PUTTING PORNO PICTURES INTO. SINCE HIS HATRED OF ME WAS CONDONED BY THE COMPANY, HE DECIDED TO IGNORE ME. IT IS APPARENT THAT THE FEMALE CTLR WAS ALSO DEEMED UNWORTHY OF HIS ATTN. I TOLD HIM TO LOOK FOR THE TFC BUT HE JUST GRUNTED AND GAVE A CURSORY GLANCE OUTSIDE. ALL OF A SUDDEN, A WHITE SMA WITH BLUE STRIPES PASSED OFF OUR R WING ABOUT 300 FT AWAY. IT WAS AT OUR ALT. WE CAME VERY CLOSE TO BEING KILLED BECAUSE MY FO DID NOT WANT TO LISTEN TO A WOMAN CAPT. MAKES YOU THINK."

.....what an idiot (the F/O)

Idiot captain for not reporting the FO to the chief pilot!

Racist and misogynistic pilots normally have a bundle of other social problems as well.

Of course, I dont know all sides of the story, I'm assuming she went through proper procedures though if she took the time to file a report.

The Chief Pilot is only one step in the ladder. Even in 1990 a women pilot would have a "plethora" of people to report sexual harassment to.

May I list just a few:

Pro Stds.
Shop Steward (or LEC rep)
Director of Operations
Personnel (excuse me "Human Resources")
Ombudsman
Chief Operating Officer
Executive Vice Presidents
etc.

I am sure there is more to the story!

Should you find yourself with time to spare, and want to scare the living • out of yourself, go into the ASRS database and do a search on "fatigue" and read some of the stories.

I used the database while working on my Masters thesis. Some pretty scary stuff in there.
