Yikes, destroy their career?
My only reason for pause is I know the culture of these departments, and how a Captain can make a terrible decision for the entire engine/RA. I would hope this investigation would start with the "leadership" if applicable. Not excusing anything or punishment for the...
I’m not replying to discredit your opinion. Accounts made just to vent normally don’t hold much weight, so I’d like to address what you’ve said for anyone genuinely interested in ATC.
