Doesn't the Beech 1900 have a secure cockpit door? If so, why was it open?
|Quoting CVG2LGA (Reply 1):|
There are mirrors posted above the pilots to where they can see the back of the cabin.
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 8):|
Great, now this is going to make Commutair start shutting the doors. That was the only good thing about flying a Commutair Beech... getting to watch the cockpit.

There's no reason for them to be up there unless they have some kind of medical emergency...
|Quoting Skibum9 (Reply 10):|
I guess it surprises me that the TSA requires airliners to have secure doors and have in countless times attacked GA because of security issues, but they allow planes, like the Beech 1900s, fly around with basically no security for the cockpit. Seems like it is security issue just waiting to happen.

And as we all know, 9/11 will *never* happen again in the United States

Yeah dont be to sure about that buddy. I dont really like some of these airports. The TSA are horrible. For example, in DTW, some of the TSA that I have seen scanning things are not even looking at the screen. They just let things go threw while they talk do their buddy off to the side. IAD is one of the good ones I have been at. Same with SFO and OAK.
|Quoting ContnlEliteCMH (Reply 19):|
My belief that 9/11 can never happen again has nothing to do with the TSA or any other government agency. It has everything to do with my faith in my fellow countrymen. I just don't believe that passengers will sit by and allow planes to be hijacked and flown into buildings. Heck, I'm skeptical they'd ever let anybody get close to the cockpit. Ever.

Do you think that there are some on the CRJ, EMB, Saab?
|Quoting QXatFAT (Reply 14):|
I dont care if you guys want to see what the piolts are doing.
|Quoting GQfluffy (Reply 22):|
It's more vice-versa. With a big, bulky, heavy (remember a 30 lb door on a 1900D means one less checked bag or carry-on) door, you lose cabin space and with no F/A, with that door closed, the PIC or F/O can't see the pax in the cabin. Not necessarily a good thing, don't you think?
