Airlink Aviation College ( Plane Crash ) Mark Dennis Garcia

On Thursday, August 28, a Tomahawk Plane crashed, owned by the Airlink Aviation College. The student pilot Mark Dennis Garcia died on the said accident he is only 18 years old. His body was recovered on Friday morning... this incident could be a pilot error, plane misfunction, or whatever reason anybody can think of. Whatever the reason maybe, this is so devastating, he is so young, with full of dreams, dreaming of becoming a pilot someday. This is a waste. My son who is enrolled in the same school came home with this news, he is so affected, although he is taking up AMT (aircraft maintenance technology) he said he sees Dennis inside the school playing ping-pong or just walking pass by him, he feels so bad about it. I, as a mother is also concern, all enrollees of Airlink are required to be taken to Lubang, in Occ. Mindoro, twice every semester for freshmen, once for 2nd year and required to stay for 3 days or less, a waiver is also required to be singned by us. A waiver which indicates that the school will not be responsible if something bad happened while on the said trip, is this fair? although I know the school will do all their best and precautions on keeping the trip safe, Iam not comfortable every time my son leaves the house for Lubang, what more with this news?

magandang araw po sa lahat..

i was a former student of airlink.. had my first solo flight with the pa-38-112 piper tomahawk of airlink, completed my ground school for private pilot and commercial pilot there to. did my simulator time and flight time there. and during my stay in airlink i have observed many not so usual practice by the company in accordance with the law and in regards with safety.

1.student pilots specialy with minimal flight time does not have sufficient knowledge in handling flight emergency. in there latest accident, swithing of fuel tank or ditching the aircraft properly in the water could have save his life. simulating emergencies in simulator and knowing proper emergency procedures could have saved his life.

2.doing a simulated emergency during flight can boosts student pilot's confidence in handling a real emergency. i dont know why they dont allow that, it is required for a pilot to have an actual exprienece in those basic keys. papano pag kinalabit kana ni kamatayan? kinalabit ka lang,,ANO ANG GAGAWIN mo? HINDO MO ALAM? EDI MAPAPASAMA KANA SAKANYA ng di oras..

3.they dont have the before flight briefing and after flight briefing. ano ang matututunan mo sa araw na eto, at ano ang natutunan mo.. mr amurao this coming 2011.. what kind of pilots can you produce? 2.5million worth of pogi looking pilot with an empty head. sorry im not sayaing na lahat ng galing jan ganun.. pero madameng galing jan na umulet from scratch sa pag aaral ng actual MO!! at actual na tunay na liparan

65k for 10 hours of flight in lubang that is controlled by your wallet, im sure baon na sa limot ang imbistigasyon ng mga napatay mo.. bakit ka paba ng papayaman e ang yaman mo na..65k take off and landing lang,araw araw.. tapos pag me emergency na ang alam lang nang ng sosolo mong studyante eh take off and landing.. + yan me cross na sa ulo nila..

talaga naman sa huli ang pag sisise, sa magulang ng mga nasawi.. pag dasal nalang ho naten na sana wag na maulet ang mga gantong bagay, at sana ay tahimik at mataimtim ang pag byahe ng mga ka anak ninyo sa kabilang buhay.. sa mga ng tutulogtulugan sa katotohanan.. wag nyo na po antayin na ang consensya ninyo ang gumising sainyo.. kase pag un ang gumising sainyo eh baka katabi naninyo ang mga namatay jan o di kaya naman nasa bilanguan na kyo..

mag iingat po kayo kapitan amorau.. ang diyos at ang sambayanan ay hindi po bulag, ang pag kakaiba lang, ang diyos ay hindi ng sasalita, pero ang taong bayan ay nakakabinge pag napuno.

salamat..
