the article is in the in this months High Life page 111 – quote from Rob De Martino after being asked:
“Have you flown the A380 yes?”
…..”We are all qualified on the A380 but had never flown the aircraft, so we spent sometime over Christmas, flying the plane between London and Australia with a training captain along side us”……….
I was curious if passengers were on board. I have never heard of one company training another companies pilots, qualified or otherwise, with revenue passengers, (if there were revenue passengers on board).
