Steven Slater -- Props From the Slide Company

8/12/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's one company that's thrilled with the way Steven Slater left his JetBlue plane during Monday's heroic departure -- the people who built the slide.

Steven Slater Slide
TMZ has learned the people at Goodrich -- who manufacture the inflatable emergency evacuation slide for the JetBlue Embraer ERJ-190 plane -- tell us they're "pleased" with the way the slide performed during Slater's infamous moment.

A rep for the company tells us the slide "functioned properly ... just like it was designed to."

As for Slater's technique -- Goodrich says, "From what we can tell, he did things exactly the way he was supposed to ... with the exception of throwing his luggage down the slide."

FYI -- Goodrich claims that if you're ever in a similar situation -- let the baggage go.

I think it's ridiculous JetBlue is saying he endangered the lives of passengers by opening the slide. The whole idea of the slide is to evacuate passengers quickly to save their lives, not possibly kill them.
If I had been on that plane and saw it happen, I would have hopped out after him and thanked JetBlue loudly. After all, I would have finally got to slide down one of those things.

"with the exception of throwing his luggage down the slide"

The newest addition to the list of safety instructions is to not stop for your luggage during an emergency evacuation. When a jet ran off the runway at a Canadian airport, the passengers all went for their luggage in the overheads while the cabin filled with jet fuel fumes.

Jet Blue should turn this into a PR bonanza by giving him a job that is like an ombudsman for client relations. They couldn't buy this kind of publicity coverage! Jet Blue: make lemon aid!

i beleive he acted very unprofessionally and he should of had more self control. i understand that a lot of people are fustrated with the jobs they have in the work place. the women that was rude to him was insane as well. what ever happened to respect. he self confessed that he has a drinking problem and needs to get professioanl help for that and hope he does. if i had done something like that on an airline i`d be in an F.B.I office and thrown in prison. just set a real bad example to others to do the same

In my wildest imagination I cannot see this guy as a hero. Shame on him. He obviously has a mental problem, "losing it" so bad. He needs HELP not encouragement that such behavior is "heroic."

Pet peeve: it is "should HAVE", not "should Of". Same with would HAVE, could HAVE, must HAVE, etc. Good grief, is no one literate?
