I did'nt mean anything personal. It just seems like every fews weeks, you hear about pilots flying will under the influence.
To me, it is a scarry thought to wonder if the plane you are flying on is being flown by a pilot(s) who are intoxicated.
I am an AC employee and this is the first time I have heard of any of our pilots boarding one of our planes to fly it while under the influence. It strikes close to home when it's a person who works for the same company as you and is flying out of your home base.
It's bad enough when you hear of people driving cars while intoxicated, but when your strapped to the nose of a plane, I think the whole topic of being under the influence while operating machinery is taken up to a higher level of concern.
Again, sorry. I did not mean anything personal. I know there are many (the vast mojority) pilots who would'nt even think about flying a plane with alcohol in his/her system.
To pilotallen, AC's policy is 12 hours.
In life, some days you are the bug..... some days you are the windshield!
