1. Back when I worked for American Airlines, I used to go to USAir parties....
...and, I swear to God, I NEVER saw so much cocaine in my LIFE! :crazy:

4. The title is misleading, USAIR and US Air Force are two different worlds
Commercial pilots are drug tested routinely so that's why I don't like the title.

And what's this about cocaine? Bull

Sorry, but it's TRUE. :shrug:

I didn't know the OP was talking about the USAF, but USAir (we used to call them "THEMAir") pilots AND FA's showed up at the parties in which blow was flowing like snow. Like I said, I was there. This was the late 80's BTW...

6. So when did you work for AA and what base?
And did this only involve US Air pilots?

...and told of the time frame, but won't reveal the station (all I'll say is it was the southeast).

2. I noticed that planes are generally running closer to schedule the past few years
I just never thought it was because my pilot is cranked out of his/her gourd.

3. Dextroamphetamine:
AKA: Dexadrine. Look it up. It was a very popular recreational drug back in the day. It's also nasty, nasty shit, highly regulated by the DEA and with very few indications. And rightfully so.

Not the sort of thing I would want to be giving to people flying jets with full combat loadouts.

8. and it's cousin: Adderall
Also highly regulated, but as a user, not something I'd call nasty, nasty shit. I can see where there would be the potential for abuse, however.

Not abused, it seems to be to be better in many respects than caffeine, imo.
