CNN Flight Instructor Fired from Real Job

The Flight Instructor that has been sitting next to CNN's Martin Savage for days on end inside the Boeing 777 simulator located in Canada, has been fired from his real job "shaming Canada."

Mitchell Casado, who's been a big part CNN’s over the top coverage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, was sacked after his boss said he showed up late to his regular job and “shamed Canadians” by dressing like a teenager.

Casado tweeted out the news that he was canned:

uFly company owner Claudio Teixeira said he fired Mitchell Casado on Wednesday in part for refusing to dress professionally and making Canadians “look very bad all over the world.”

Casado’s relaxed style of jeans and plaid shirts attracted wide attention during CNN’s constant coverage of the search for the missing flight. CNN’s Martin Savidge and Casado logged many hours reporting from the fake cockpit located at the company’s office in near the Toronto airport, which has a simulator that is the same model of the lost plane.

Teixeira said Casado didn’t come to work Tuesday when customers had the simulator booked. “This is not the first time. He’s been warned before,” he told The Associated Press.
