THIS JOKE IS IN NO WAY REFLECTING MY VIEWS/OPINION ON SWA. SO IF YOU ARE GOING TO LECTURE ME ABOUT IT, SAVE IT!! I'M MERELY POSTING A HUMEROUS POST.
"Southwest Reveals Training Program"
>Southwest Airlines has announced a new training program for all its 737 pilots, following last month's unintended off-airport excursion at Burbank.
"We think we have the finest airplane pilots in the business," said President Herb Kelleher. "Some are better than others, of course, but that's life. However, we're initiating a new training program and updating our simulators to include all Chevron stations at every airport we fly to."
Kelleher said the mandatory training syllabus will also include:
* How to tell where the runway begins and ends.
*The difference between a Chevron station and the terminal.
*Why a three degree glideslope angle is less steep than six degrees and why its important.
*Preprinted FAA report forms with checkboxes for a) landed long, b) landed short, c) no one was hurt, much.
* How to read an airspeed indicator (with extra credit for knowing knots and miles are different).
*Why approach plate information is not optional.
*Just exactly what "Go Around" means.
You've gotta admit that summoned a smile
(even all you SWA fanatics)
I have nothing against SWA, they are a great budget airline!
