Please tell me you weren't the silly group of guys who decided to make the stewards say, "In the event of a water landing....!"

"Learn to swim quick, we suggest using your neighbor as a flotation device.".

I'm not on planes often, what's wrong with " In the event of a water landing....!"?

Unless it's a float plane, those landings can be highly problematic.

Every time I fly to Hawaii, they mention the "water landing" stuff, and think of the 3000 miles of ocean that we are crossing over, and exactly how a flotation device built into my seat cushion is going to save the day. NOT!

Well for 14 years I was a steel Heat Treater that specialized in Induction hardening but after they got a real A$$ hole to be the new boss I finely had enough and quit.

Im now a Stay at Home Dad and its much more rewarding.

Would you feel better if it came with an anti shark system?

Not really, but a parachute and an boat with supplies would surely make for a more settling flight!

Hope the guy flying, is the same pilot that did the miracle landing on the Hudson, and there is a recue ship nearby.

I own 2 small businesses, one is water well drilling, and servicing. The other is I am a pilot, and own 2 aircraft for charter or contract work. I only have 7 employees, and myself.
In the summer I also try hard to get away for a bit and prespect for placer.
