Hi, is this Huffman Aviation?
Sorry. I was taking an outside line. Yes this is
You're probably getting 3 million calls, right?
No, five million.
Ok, I'm going to keep you on for ten seconds. I just
have a very quick question to ask you.
Emperors-Clothes, we're a news Website. Do you train
people on the actual planes that were used in that
horrible thing in NY?
No sir. We train small single engine, small
multi-engine airplanes. And they are good for four
people; that's it. That's not turbine. Total different
systems. Not capable to fly anything like that. I have
learned yesterday from the media - you are talking to
Could you spell your name?
Dekkers: R-u-d-i D-e-k-k-e-r-s.
And you're talking to Jared Israel at Emperor's
Clothes which is at www.tenc.net and is very skeptical
about the story because it didn't make sense.
No, what happened was after the training they had here
they went to another flight school in Popana Beach and
they had jet training there, simulator or big planes,
but there is where they conducted the training to do
what they had to do.
Are you sure of that?
Yeah we have heard that from several directions.
But even so, with the training you would get would
you trust somebody to get in a plane and fly?
Dekkers: No, I fly 20 years in these kind of
small planes and I would not for a million dollars
take over that cockpit.
So it's still questionable, isn't it?
Oh, you bet. (Phone rings.) One second...(Off line)
Larry, Larry keep on the line I have 30 seconds and
then I am with you...(Back on line) 30 seconds.
Yes. You're very helpful. Your point is the more
sophisticated training with the other place but that
might give you a certificate but would you trust
somebody to do the kind of sophisticated thing they
Dekkers: No they didn't have the certificate to do
that. They only had only a multi-commercial license
but not for commercial airlines. That is a different
license. But these people didn't need a license, so
that's another question.
But wouldn't what they did require sophistication?
Dekkers: Yeah, they went to that school, I have
heard the name, they call it a jet center for
simulator training, there is no way - this is not my
opinion. My opinion is I don't think it is possible.
I have spoken to many captains from the airlines and
they say there is no way what the planes did they
could have done that. They changed altitude. They
changed speed. They changed direction. They had to
know about the equipment to do what they had to do
and there is no way that could have been done.
