The number of the crews may also include other crew or pers dead heading back on the aircraft.
I recall something about a blanket coverage or permanent waiver for dangerous cargo on SAR ops. Obviously something has changed. What about all of the smokes, flares and other fireworks that are carried on all SAR aircraft?Zoomie said:Stop the pain!
DC is a huge PITA in my world. We lack MAMs support - don't have a Loadie - and our FE is task saturated enough with his job. I like to always have the caveat in my back pocket that gives the AC the final authority to decide to go without any paperwork if the conditions are met. I'd hate to have to delay SAR because A4 Mov wasn't answering their phones.
