And then it's like a trumpet to an old warhorse, as a defender of logic and the Rule of Law, I feel compelled to disabuse the miscreant of his or her fatally erroneous notions. To that I must plead mea culpa ... :lol:

Don’t worry Jim
There’s always a first year junior who believes he should challenge all and every experience at every turn, backed up by Objective perplexsion, because as a such he doesn’t quite know what he doesn’t know. Like a perfect computer that knows the meaning of life. n Gatvlieg, we call it.

Every post has has to become an argument about why it was posted, and how “I would handle it better”. And turns into pages and pages of rubbish, detracting from the original post.
Because Junior’s Objectivity just has to be right. :roll: :roll:

Best way is to ignore that irritating gatvlieg because daddy will insure his ill discipline and constant disrespect.

I know I know. Banned for life.
Ou Bok, ek like jou :lol:

Having known the OP Dale for +30 years, what he has achived in aviation, the high standards of his flying & instruction. He can rightfully expect fellow instructors to behave appropriately on frequency. The term "disgusting" would not be used casually.
He also wears his well deserved aviation green & gold with pride :D

What have we learned from this thread?
Nothing, except two young okes need to be publicly shamed, hung, drawn and quartered.
Problem solved, everyone feels better now don't they.
I suspect that the more perceptive of those who want to learn on Academy, will have learned at least three things:

1. Don't play silly-muggers on the radio - it is a very public space
2. Cluttering up the frequency is potentially dangerous.
3. Professional pilots should set an example by being professional all the time.

I don’t know the OP, but he has a very valid point and I commend him for what he has done.

And there is a world of difference between saying “Howzit Chom” on frequency and chatting up your lady fancy on frequency, in front of your students.

And even if the trike drivers discuss breakfast, it’s sometimes a bit irritating, and not necessarily right, but then again they are not setting an example for a future professional, it’s their weekend fun. A Beeeg difference in my opinion.

Even if some believe it’s the same crime.
And for the 4 mods that liked the post, thank you and greetings from Moscow, where the Vodka is cold and Russian k@k praat on frequency is rife. (I don’t know what they’re saying, but no girl voices to chat up).
Flying is like sex. I've never had all I wanted but occasionally I've had all I could stand.
