DER TRAINING COURSE - FAA
It’s Friday afternoon and you are about to get off of work to meet some friends at your favorite restaurant when you get a call from a friend of yours in check-in. She says that she saw one of your pilots, Dave, on the shuttle bus to the airport this morning and he didn’t look good. She says that he stumbled into the van, passed out in the back seat, and then threw up shortly after getting out of the van. She is concerned because she thought she saw him swig a half-empty bottle of tequila before entering the airport. What do you do? Do you know where to look for the answer?
Would it matter if it was a gate agent instead?
Would it matter if it was a flight mechanic instead?
Would it matter if he was leaving work instead of starting work?
