The Snowflake Award for 2019 goes to... (21 Jan, 2019)

Has Mr Tim Robinson taken the crown for "biggest union whinger" from Mr Greg O'Connor?

If you thought that airline pilots were a bunch of tough, macho men with courage and skills that dwarfed those of the average man -- boy, you seem to have been wildly mistaken.

It would appear that there is at least one "real man" airline pilot out there, but he's obviously not a member of NZALPA, whose members cower in fear every time the see a drone and live in fear of laser pointers.

How tragic that being a snowflake has become so fashionable these days and that NZALPA has found such an accomplished whinger in the form of Mr Robinson.

Well I did a video on this subject and it has created quite a bit of (sometimes heated) response from both the drone/RC and manned aviation community. Worth a read of the comments:

And here is a video of plane after plane taxi passing with unmanned aviation totally unregulated.

And still NZALPA whines on:

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/new ... d=12210588

and still the NZH reprints press releases and NZALPA statements as "journalism". YET AGAIN I have emailed the writer of this story to ask why he is not challenging any of the assertions made by NZALPA. As was the case last time, I doubt I'll get any response.

How tragic is our media these days?
