Re: ‘Reckless’ Canadian pilots commit major quarantine breach in Darwin

We are allowed to break Quarantine to perform a flight - then back into Quarantine until the 14 days are up. Recently we were allowed out to get COVID tests which need to be negative prior to the next flight. Otherwise you are not allowed out of your apartment. They do follow up in Australia. So a ...

Re: boeing max retrurns coming back

It has been an interesting voyage. In my mind I have always questioned if the aircraft should have been grounded in the first place. It was a media and social media farce. Again, a truly tragic set of events but totally preventable if the crews involved had been better prepared. These airlines are ...

Re: Cleared to Taxi to a rwy is not a clearance to cross any rwy

As the above incident shows how important it is to advise ATC where you are on the airport when:-

-Requesting start up
-Requesting taxi if there is a frequency change (from Delivery or similar).
-Anytime something doesn't feel 'right'

Good job by the crew - this could have ended very differently.

Re: V1 in small twins

If you continue single engine before V1, you'll hit something at the end of the runway. This makes sense. V1 has value. You can trust it. It's well defined. Training on large jets is now to be "go minded" approaching V1. Because V1 is so critical it is considered safer to continue if some...

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

The person who started this whole protest only became concerned when it became doubtful that the deal between AC and his airline would potentially not materialize. Prior to that, he was the first one to hail DOH in a seniority merge, and since then his attitude has changed to the extent he wants al...

Re: Does partial passing affect one’s career in any way..?

Most European airlines ask something similar. School grades, university degree grades. They like their paperwork. More than 2 failed written tests or more than 1 failed flight test and you're out in some of them. They do get a ton of applicants though. That really depends on the company. Some just ...

If the engine is developing power and all else is within limits leave it running - jmho.

One of the best tools is the GPS altitude display . Hard to find on some older gps models but well worth the effort for the added safety . Ever wondered why GPS isn't used instead of a pressure altimeter? The GPS altitudes are based on a model using a sphere (WGS 84). The earth isn't a sphere so th...
