Somehow the DPA reads this letter as a win against tyranny. It's a view we don't take after reading the same letter. The DPA has been singled out for violating Flight Operations advocacy policy by having pilots stuff vertical files with DPA propaganda in DTW, ATL and LAX. Caplinger attempts to distance his control over DPA members in an attempt to mitigate his liability, yet his own lawyer says on video that the members should "just go ahead and try it anyway" even though it violates policy.
Our concern over the legal team the DPA uses continues to worry us when Seeham advocates violating a policy at work, a move that can get pilots in trouble but leaves Capligner insulated. That's nice for him.
