Watching the tragic coverage of the missing Air France Airbus this morning, CNN played this piece (rather poor taste in timing IMHO but whatever) about Gulfstream. It's pretty damning...albeit the whistle blowers are former employees who may have an agenda. Still, in light of their $1.3 million fine from the FAA last week, it raises eyebrows.

Wow! CNN really has it in for Gulfstream. Last week they had a story about how many former Gulfstrem pilots were involved in crashes.

Quoting Pellegrine (Reply 2):

No. Continental is minimally involved in the day to day functioning of Gulfstream. Gulfstreams problems stem mostly from the corporate culture.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of aviators.
I have a personnal bone to pick with Gulfstream. They've been on my dung list for a few years now.

If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
