Pilot to TSA, Pilot to TSA..... Fuck off

A pilot for ExpressJet is telling the TSA to fuck off. Of course he'll probably lose his job in the process. I was wondering, where is the pilots union in this? Isn't this the kind of thing they are actually for? This guy has a legit beef with the TSA. It is pretty stupid to search him when he has control of the actual plane to begin with. Also, those body scanners are basically X-ray machines. I'm pretty sure that is going to really fuck over pilots if they have to go through them every single day.

The pilot already has control of a deadly weapon, and there ain't shit that the tsa can do about it. Stupid searches of pilots are just that. Hell, i'd rather my pilot was packing some heat in case some idiot tries some stupidity.

Tomorrow i'll probably have to go thru the body scanner for the first time. I hope they like the pic of my junk

Very true. If a pilot has a death wish, he can just stick the plane in the ground. Why go to the trouble of a bomb or weapon, when he's guaranteed success with just a nose-dive. If they can't trust the pilot, he shouldn't be flying the plane.

Wasn't the TSA going to have a special card made up for travelers and personnel that would let them bypass most of the security screening? The card was obtained after getting a pretty rigorous background check.

Can't they at least implement that for pilots and crew members?

coming from an aviation background I can tell you that commercial pilots are treated like shit, and the pay sucks (it wouldnt surprise me if the TSA inspectors were making more money)

If you want to make it extra special for them, pop some Viagra beforehand.
