Could the above video be the perfect metaphor for today’s aviation industry?

The baby seems to have a firmer grasp of the current situation than does the CAA, EASA and FAA.

One also has to wonder if the airlines who bought the now ‘supersafe’ Boeing 737MAX  have to pay extra for the box of Kleenex as they did for the MCAS system ‘add-on’?


 ‘Whats That Coming Over The Hill’?

Is it
a) A Monster
b) A legal case involving FDP and fatigue issues

I wish someone had highlighted fatigue and FDP abuse before and written the book on it..

 It is interesting that the company ‘Baines Simmons’ completed the ‘report’ mentioned in the article below. Therefore, book three of ‘Pulling Wings From Butterflies’ will make for VERY interesting reading for those wondering why Baines Simmons has ‘suddenly’ decided to claim fatigue is an issue considering their involvement and claims in their ‘investigation’ into my case against Thomas Cook. All we need to do now is wait for BALPA to claim that fatigue is a major issue and support industrial action at a major UK airline, lets say ‘Virgin’ for example and for CAA’s Rob Bishton to issue a missive supporting Virgin #ohhehas

As Columbo would say. ‘Oh, one more thing’. This report will have nothing to do with the fact that the police have now completed their investigation into the details of books two and three, along with the supporting evidence. 

I am sure this Baines Simmons report it is just one big ‘coincidence’.


Last week I was interviewed by a Dutch TV crew. Unfortunately, due to the impending legal case, I was restricted in what I could tell them about my particular situation. This is also the reason books two and three have been delayed in publication.

I am very pleased to report, however, that the UK Police have now completed their investigations and are currently preparing a file to present to the Crown Prosecutor for charging authority. The police investigation is centred on the contents of books two and three of ‘Pulling Wings From Butterflies’ along with the associated evidence.

In order to avoid sub judice, the books will not be published until the “law takes its course”. …Meanwhile, the establishment circles the wagons.

part one - Tercio de varas

The first book in the trilogy begins by following the unique journey of Captain Mike Simkins from touring Europe as a drummer and performing with some of the most prominent musical artists of the late ’80s, to becoming a commander on the world’s most advanced passenger aircraft.

Ultimately, the wings were pulled from the butterfly of a dream career when, Mike stood alone to confront a multibillion-dollar aviation establishment when he refused to place profit before safety.

PArt TWO - Tercio de banderillas

Will the pilot union BALPA and the regulator, the CAA, support a legal case of major significance to the safety of airline passengers and crew? 

What’s the reason unions and regulators allow airlines to have  ‘Cash Cadet’ pilots with zero jet experience pay them to fly fare-paying passengers?

Why do pilots agree to fly when dangerously fatigued that directly places not only themselves but their passengers and crews in danger?

What was the answer from the Thomas Cook CEO to the question ‘did the company put profit before safety’ in relation to two children’s death in Corfu?

How will a pilot with zero legal experience confront a multimillion-pound multinational at trial?

part three - Tercio de MUERTE

Crews admit that they are knowingly flying duties in the full expectation they will suffer fatigue. They are committing these criminal acts due to the “Bullying” culture at one of the UK’s biggest airlines.

The CAA is provided with irrefutable proof that duty times are knowingly falsified to make it appear they conformed with strictly laid down maximum times and that pilots are flying at the equivalent effectiveness of a drunk driver. Their response? ‘Get over it.’ .
