Looks like another pilot may lose his wings...Pilot Arrested for Having Loaded Gun at Buffalo Airport | wgrz.com
I thought that all pilots had a gun in the cockpit after all the threats during 911 too, but it looks like this pilot violated a airline rule by carrying his own weapon on his personWasn't there a whole movement to get pilots armed?
What's the big deal here?
I, believe that some airlines had trained their pilots in the use of a weapon after 911 in order that the plane was not as easy to be over taken by terrorists.If everyone on the planes from 9/11 that knew how to use a gun, had one, I don't think 9/11 could have happened.
This is true, but this pilot was not the FFDO on the flight..Hence the reason for his arrest!Airline pilots who CCW in the cockpit for the purposes of safeguarding the cockpit during flight are known as Federal Flight Deck Officers. Read on...
