Agreed. His comment was in reference to a discussion about fleet pilots input on 1 vs. 2 standby instruments. The consensus was that one is all that's necessary and he started going off about "but the requirements say" blah, blah, blah - then that gem.I don't know how to build a helicopter.....or a jet for that matter. I DO, however know how to use a seat cushion, kneeboard, or pencil. They should stay in their lanes and only "certify" shit that affects more than just my little pink behind.
I restrained myself because I had been working there for a little over a month and still didn't know my role. My NAVAIR boss told me "I wish you would have shut him down. That's what I hired you - to fight for the Marines when they can't." I've taken off the gloves since.As an engineer that used to work for a LARGE DOD supplier in college, I am pissed. I probably would have choked them as well. I don't have as much self restraint as Phrogger.
