In the US you can now bring on blades as long as they dont exceed 4 inches...maybe this is the rationale
Nothing is impossible to he who doesn't have to do it.

sure if they let everyone through with a blade that has an SPL, everyone-even terrorists could get an SPL, Alls you need is a few hours flyin and a medical!!!

Another time i got through the airport (malaga) with tools in my hand baggage, Vice Grips- Plyers-LongNose Plyers- Screwdrivers etc. College tools... (you knoe the one Dutch!!!) Anyway id forgotton all about it as i actually got it off my dad in spain and the security were all over me when i put my bag through- it looked as if i was tryna hide it coz it was wrapped fairly well :D

I'd much rather the security to be as dedicated as it was then in dublin airport....

And another time i was in spain when i was about 8 and i put a toy GUN :D through the scanner the whole lot of the security guards took out their gun and were pointing then at my family- brilliant, but terrifying :D :D

When a flight is proceeding incredibly well, something was forgotten.

We should also carry some survival equipment just in case that tree is every high and we have to stay overnight.

What would you suggest we carry ?

Even a student pilot should know that a tree is not a good place to make an emergency landing.

I've read a few Gavin Lyall novels in my day and I think its a good idea to have a knife too.

Solutions:

1. Carry a knife as standard equipment if you believe that the risk is there or;
2. Avoid trees when having a crash landing or;
3. Don't fly take up stamp collecting instead....... 8)

An overnight bag with night gear of course :P

Trees in an emergency landing are probably best avoided (what about all the S's when selecting a suitable forced area, although easier said than done if night flying i'd imagine) also in an EFATO or low altitude scenario etc. that may not be possible and such an event of having to temporarily dwell in a mangled aircraft, suspended in a tree for the night, would not be very appealing especially if there was any haemorrhaging injuries! I think a mobile phone would be a sensible piece of equipment to carry allbeit turned off during normal operations. That way you could probably spend the night in more appropriate surroundings like a hospital rather than the foliage of a large tree, once the foliage isn't dense enough to interfere with network coverage :roll: and there is still the faculty to use it.

One scenario I'd like to have a knife at the ready is ditching in water. If that seat belt gets jammed then it could make all the difference... Although I have yet to read a report of it happening...

or if you get stuck on an island you can use the knife to hunt!! or clean out fish you catch.on a more serious note a leatherman tool is a good investment,the best one is E120.

Knifes may do more good than bad....

a) On impact knife sticks in chest

b) Both arms broken cannot use knife

c) Knife slips when cutting belt and stabs testicle

d) Wrong knife will not cut butter

e) Flick Knife - Wrong end stabs in eye


Grrrr
