Exactly why most major operators end up with union representation.
|Quoting Newagebird (Thread starter):|
I suppose it would depend on the employer but just wondering how far u can screw up and still get away with it...
Generally it would depend, if a pilot had a bad record, as a previous mishap or did not do well on proficiency previously, then something that seems minor can be the straw that broke the camels back so to speak if the pilot has a bad record.
On the other hand if an incident is something minor or questionable about the pilots responsibility then more training or suspension is in order or tea and biscuits with the boss.
As we do not have all the facts in this particular incident at MSP
there could be something wrong with the brakes or anti-skid that was out of the pilots control.
Most operators have invested quite a large amount of money in training pilots and it is not to their advantage to just terminate pilots without just cause. Operators will tend to let pilots wash themselves out early on if they do not fly well or adhere to operational procedures long before they get to the left seat.
