It's always a tricky subject, and as an instructor it's a delicate one to broach, but the facts are, if the CofG doesn't work out, then it doesn't work.

I really don't see why you felt the need to get personal, and it does seem to be an increasing trend here too. But, your problem. I was commenting in general, and have no idea who you are or what yo ...

James T Lowe, it's how I got hired. Had done my R44 type rating, CPL H and other bits and bobs with my company. It was several years down the line when it happened, but it did happen.
