    Beware the pitfalls of social media

    Most folks are smart enough to know that big brother and the company pay attention to social media and are well aware of the companyís policy.
    Identifying yourself as an employee for a specific company only draws increased scrutiny to what you might post.
    The reason Iím posting this here is because one of our DECs was caught using inappropriate language in a comment section of a social media posting last night. Someone reading it that took offense to said comment forwarded it to envoy,AAG, the FAA as well as media outlets.
    As of noon today the pilot has been released according to a tweet put out by envoy.
    Donít be that guy.

    At least he could retain Commercial privileges.

    In all seriousness though, that action usually requires commission of a felony, significant misdemeanor or falsification of records, etc. However, a cursory research of previous cases in at least one instance did result in revocation for among other things, “a pattern of conduct which departs from ordinary patterns of morality and shows that respondent is capable of acting without inhibition in an unstable manner and without regard to the rights of others”.(Administrator vs. Roe, CAB 969 (1966)).

    He hasn't been released...YET. And as of right now, he still hasn't technically even been removed from service. He is still default RAP 1 this weekend. But the wrath is coming no doubt.

    Sounds like un-conscious bias.

    Iím hearing that the FA banter on their union page has gotten so out of control that the union has issued a statement telling them to watch what they are posting.
    Does anyone not pay attention to the social media policy?

    The established precedent at AAG-Envoy has been to bring a social media “offender” to Dallas for a scared straight session tour of HQ doing the manager meet-n-greet. The only person not on probation to ever not be given the Tour, and be fired instead was me... up until 06-2016.... probably longer, but I can’t verify right now.

    There are at least 2 convicted felons that I'm aware of, currently incarcerated for several years, still on the APA seniority list. A Pedophile and a Ponzi Fraudster. The Ponzi FO caused great financial harm to many senior AA pilots for a promise of high returns for their upcoming retirements. Buyer Beware. Diversification. "If you are such an outstanding Financial guru, Why are you still here, flying this crappy trip with me?" Doesn't pass the smell or common sense test.

    Correction: The Ponzi FO may have been released from Prison on parole. If allowed back into a "cockpit", he might have a "HUGE", "DO NOT PAIR" list.
