Re: The Offending Puddle

Excuse me Jim, but I don't get it.  If it's not in a NOTAM how are we supposed to know?  Once we land, what are we supposed to do? 

The runway is in seriously bad shape and there was no NOTAM.  That's an error, but it isn't pilot error.

If this happened landing on Farmer Brown's dirt track, or at some sailplane port -- OK, Pilot error.  Otherwise, I disagree.

There is an elephant in the room that no one sees... pilot error.

FAA regs put the onus on the pilot to know ABSOLUTELY EVERYthing about the flight we are about to take.
Do we do it... NO, and we are all guilty of it and 99% of the time we get away with it.

That's kind of what the FAA said.
