RE: TSA Deems Cupcake 'security Threat'

Everyone would agree that the <acronym title="Taipei - Sung Shan (TSA / RCSS), Taiwan">TSA</acronym> was in the wrong on this particular circumstance. I feel like one thing that needs to be kept in mind is that people specifically search for stories like this about the <acronym title="Taipei - Sung ...

Worst Landing Conditions

Just thought it would be cool from different pilots telling the worst/ most challenging conditions that they have landed in...this could be visibility, winds, runway length, wx, ceilings, or most likely a combination of all of the above.

RE: Aviation Safety: Feedback On Draft Please

While it looks pretty good, it is worth while to mention that the public is quick to rule an accident as pilot error. In your example it was actually the system that experienced a failure and unfortunately the pilots did not notice/react quick enough. Safety is NOT an inherent characteristic of a sy...
