Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Yes. I thought that Air Canada crewed heavier especially since they use RP's where Transat does not. Believe that was in fact brought up in one of the earlier merger threads.

Re: Imagine a Greyhound bus in 1999. Now imagine it is in the air

I'm not saying Spirit or any other ULCC/Lcc Is great, in fact I've never flown on them or any other. However, it seems a lot of people's complaints (other than when you see whole plane loss stranded etc) boil down to "I didn't read the fine print and figured it was the same product as Delta"

Re: Mexico tries to sell . jet to Canada, saying it's 'better' than PM's plane

I mean.....he's not wrong. It's IS better than a couple of old challengers and a 310 (300?). It's just no less wasteful for us than it was for them. Wrong plane for the mission.

Re: Entire application process timeline?

I'm honestly thinking after all the anecdotes that they prefer the sub 1000 hr guys. Less "bush to get out of them" as someone phrased it. I'm probably wrong if we had the real figures but it sure sounds that way reading these threads

Re: Logging Pilot In Command Under Supervision Time

Fire patrol and pipeline aren't going to low time pilots anymore. People frown on paying for type ratings so why would renting be different. If you can find a school with the availability to let you head out on an extended trip with a plane. Times have changed considerably.

Re: Whats the best headset to get

Your $400 set is just “passive” ear protection. Clamps on your head and blocks sound. Your $1000+ headsets have some form of electronic noise cancelling. Will be much quieter not clamp your head so hard (they don't have to) but will require batteries. They may have extra features like Bluetooth etc....

Re: PICUS at Encore

As many on here like to point out signing bonuses can easily disappear and are not an increase in wages. A look through the payscales and most start fo’s at 40-50 and stagnate quick. Jazz’s FO scale surpasses most of them in year 5 or 6. For captains they start around the same as jazz $80, and stagn...

Now its USD sure, but the biggest chunk of that “make 95k you’re first year” is signing bonuses ie Mesa airlines 22,500 signing bonus 5000 if you come with a ...

Can anyone confirm whether companies looking for candidates with a CURRENT Group 1 IFR are looking for someone who is current on their 6/6/6, or is the expectation just that your still within the IPC? i doubt anyone cares. your ppc training will revalidate your group 1 for a year anyways.

Re: Metroliner

It’ll teach you how to trim thats for sure. Tends to be a bit pitchy from what i know. Its gonna be fast at first. Drinking from the firehose as they say. You will fall behind from time to time. A good training program/ good captains can help you through it. Wouldn't worry too much about it.

I think he's saying that we've quickly come to the point where "when everyone has a degree, no one has a degree" most jobs do not require a degree. They require specific training.

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

The original reasoning for the MCAS was due to longitudinal instability in some flight regimes . The software fix does not address an aerodynamic issue that the other 737 models do not have . It's not unstable. It flies fine. It just doesn't fly EXACTLY like older 737's meaning that without MCAS it...

I would figure they'd be on line. That parts not difficult with those tugs. Ground didn't look snow covered hiding it. Wrong line maybe. I think 40/60 between unsuitable route and Airbus not parked all the way up the line fully.(maybe obscured when it was parked?)
