    It’s a problem with rusty pilots. The FAA has the same problem as many of it’s inspectors are not current and can not give the checks required for pilots.

    I find it amazing that the Democratic party can piss away 100’s of millions on fake trials, impeachment and 450 million in surrounding the capitol with a razor wire fence and 7500 troops........Yet they can not fund the FAA to keep it’s inspectors current !!!

    BTW most Congressmen and Senators fly commercially........I suppose they are too dumb to realize that their ass can be killed when a rusty pilot makes a mistake!?

    Yes this can be a problem, especially with memory items. Back in the 70's the joke was "What does a rattlesnake and Northwest Orient Airlines have in common. Answer: You never Know when they are going to strike." Northwest ended a 109 day pilot strike in 1978 and had to recertify all their pilots since they have not done the required three take-offs and landings in 90 days. I don't think this requirement should be waived for the pandemic. Hasn't the FAA lost so much of its once golden image with the MAX nightmare. The requirement should stand and it should be mandatory for the airline that employs the pilots to schedule the flights to keep them current with their ratings. As far as Congress Members and Senators go right now they have their head so far up their own you know what they probably don't even know that this requirement was suspended. So they will walk down the jetway like lambs to the slaughter.

    The real amazing part here is Congress and the Seante fly all the time on these aircraft and they are oblivious that the good old boy club exists
