Canadian government is a liberal bureaucratic controlling outfit. People who valve their freedom is surprising to me to even think of voting for such people. Quess you like being led by controlling leaders like that. Why do you want a government who controls your lives instead of you controlling it?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH no such thing as a HEAD PILOT...doesn't exist. Chief Pilot is what you mean...can't believe someone with no ability to research a subject would take the time to put a video out and not use the proper terminology.

I’m not sure the Feds would be too happy to see a guy who has just had his licence suspended interfering with the flight crew from the jump seat. I’m amazed that he wasn’t also sanctioned for trying to change the power settings on take off, once this episode aired.

Maybe planet earth and the production are on 2 parallel universes but: 1. P.I.C. is PIC. C.F.I is C.F.I, Evaluation is Evaluation and a commercial flight with passengers on board is not a training flight. 2. NO ONE with suspension can be UBER CAPTAIN, CHECKER, OR EVEN LEGIT EVALUATORS. 3. On planet earth, 1 min after the TV presentation - Aviation authorities representatives should start immediate investigation. BS beyond BS, and the "Heroes" are on "where the f#@# did you scratch them" Q&A levels ;)

I watched this show but I didn't enjoy it precisely because of "Buffalo Joe". May be it's the way it works in Northern America (I'm doubtful since "Flying Wild Alaska" shows a very different picture) but, as European, I would not have stayed more than a week with a boss like him, basically apathetic, nasty temper, grumbling, yelling at everybody even his best employees, showing favouritism sometimes. He has merit for sure for what he has achieved in his life but this doesn't excuse him: the best leaders are not necessarily terrors. Moreover it's easy to intimidate young people looking for a job and ready to make tremendous efforts: strong with the weak ... My opinion

@T W As an American myself, not only are you being insulting to a great group of pilots, you are incredibly wrong. Being unnecessarily harsh to people in the cockpit is not a question of being weak and soft, it’s a safety issue. Uncomfortable cockpit environments lead to unwarranted stress, which lead to a greater risk of mistakes, and mistakes can add up to accidents. It’s the old snowball effect that can happen on flights and on checkrides. It can turn what would be a good flight with a few mistakes into a really bad day. Like I said you can still be no-nonsense with people without being patronizing or overly judgmental.
littleferrhis 10 gün önce
@pat olt I’d totally agree with that. I’m a CFI currently, actually building stuff like SOPs, syllabi, and teaching classes for a new college program(hoping it’ll look nice on a resume). The best instructors I’ve flown with are smart, will point out when you did things wrong, but not in a patronizing or judgmental way. In other words treating you like a competent human being, or competent pilot you are depending on where you are training wise and slowly work with you from there. They don’t sit there and tell you your flying sucks, the training you got was hot garbage at the flight school you trained at, you probably just barely scraped through your checkrides to get where you were, and you aren’t a natural pilot(all of which I’ve heard from the instructor in question) which while they may or may not be true aren’t really things that make for a comfortable cockpit environment and don’t really help with learning. Being helpful and respectful go a long way.

@littleferrhis Agreed but an instructor is not necessarily either a devil or an angel: there is perhaps a middle ground ... I'm an od man now but I was a helicopter pilot in the military and then an Experimental Test Pilot, so I know what is training and I met various instructors: some of them were tough, some were more pleasant, so to speak, but I never met somebody like him. Even in the military (not US, I'm not American) the aim is not to bring individuals to a breakdown but to teach them some skills. The pace and the progress are very selective and ruthless but never in flight. If some people could not keep pace with the imposed rhythm, well ... they were fired but politely. Never necessary to humiliate people ... It is this aspect that bothers me the most.

I’ve flown with instructors like Joe before, though not as bad. They get results teaching wise, but they really work best with people who can shrug stuff off easily and don’t believe everything they are hearing, aka the kids that got scolded a ton by their parents. If you aren’t that type of person, while you may eventually get results, you’ll be stressed out and hating the job for a significant amount of time depending on how long you do it. Flying with the instructor I met before, I was a goody two shoes as a kid and tried my best to not find myself in trouble. Hopping in with a scoldy instructor, my flying ability fell apart, my confidence took a nosedive, and I was afraid to fly for months. For other people they just would have called him bitchy and took the advice. But that person probably wouldn’t have enjoyed a guy who was just cheering them on the whole time, or they would have and would have found themselves not improving, just depends on the person.

A few months in the copilot seat of a DC 3 would qualify a pilot to drop paratroops on D Day.

The stateside equivalent of Joe, would be Jack Norton, Owner of Sparta Aviation, Sparta, Michigan. Jack managed the airport and ran his FBO for over 40 years. He owned a dozen planes and ran a tight operation. I flew for Jack, and he once told me, "If you want to make a small fortune in aviation, you have to start with a large fortune."

Although to add to that to be pulled up for some thing apparently you did two years ago . Im not being funny how , can you imagine being pulled for a driving offense two years ago , if you had a lawyer you would pull that apart . why two years ? you have allowed a pilot to operate two years then ....because of an infraction took them off flying for ten days . I would say that's pretty poor . Just my point , trust me if we did wrong on a crash and things get pulled like training , qualifications, radio tapes for evidence etc and a full investigation would go ahead . So if Joe was so bad why two years !! makes no sense

There is a way of constructive criticism , we used to call knock em down then build them up . So you pull them up for what could have been better , how ever you end with the things they did well at . No one is ever perfect and learning is no matter how long you have done the job , you always learn . I have worked in the Aviation World since i was 18yrs old and things have changed for the better in certain ways . My job kicks in when all goes wrong , as in crash etc . In my 32 years i have only attended three crashes were it was pilot error . I have been to engine fires , burst tires , wheel brake fires , APU fires , bird strikes , hydraulic leaks , Loss of power and some very close call landings . How ever the three crashes all pilot error , thankfully no one died , although on one some not so good injuries resulting in one having to leave due to medical reasons . Yes i agree there is a way of criticism and being in a calm and chilled out tone , but also there is times to shout if things could turn to poo quickly . In my job we have commands and yes certain ones get every bodies attention and others still attention but less immediate , but then i don't fly we deal with the mess when it goes wrong .

as a pilot I can appreciate every perspective here but I am not sure any of this is good. CRM is a very important aspect of what we do. Joe bless his heart is hurting and I too have been there. But his hurt is not every bodies hurt. Probably the hardest part of a cowboys life is letting go. I honestly have a new perspective because I was very uncomfortable watching joe deal with all of this.

As a TRE and DE this guy should be placed on desk leave. An Instructor, Examiner or senior experienced Commander should under no circumstances treat the licensed crew with this disrespect. The designated commander should have instructed him to get off his flight deck. Since his pilot’s licence was suspended he had no business interfering with the aircraft controls nor interfering in the conduct of the flight. Transport Canada should suspend his licence again!
