Re: Any tips from airline pilots?

Any current airline pilot’s trip to where they are today will have, for better or worse, been different from what you will do. This is okay. Opportunities change over time, do what’s best for yourself at any given time but don’t forget to have a life along the way.

Re: Boeing Update, for Air Canada Pilots — News and Views

I thought the Max flew fine but sucked at being broken. Do these flights even prove anything we don’t already know?

Just have a means of separating that time later if you need to and in the meantime just keep flying.

Re: Confederation College Student

Do your homework and don’t let yourself fall behind. Seconded, and I can’t stress that enough. College was the first time I took my homework seriously (figured if I was paying I owed it to myself to do the whole course) and I made sure it was done immediately after class and before dinner every day...

It seems to me, the PFO rate is at an all time high
If true, you could also take that as HR taking more risks on who they invite to interview. Casting a wider net should result in more PFOs.

Kalitta I believe has palletized seating and I assume a history of moving a bunch of troops that way. Just don’t let them sucker you into paying extra for a window seat.

It’s a crappy way to explain to the public that thanks to dual wheels you can land and taxi in without every passenger being killed or worse. I expect the news agencies were told there are redundancies on every system of a modern airliner, including the wheels.

Can relate. The distance from the back of my ass to the front of my knee when seated is longer than the seat pitch in a decent number of airliners. Good times.

Salt water on the coast is a no-go, 415s aren't like a Beaver you can rebuild every couple years to deal with corrosion.
I’ve seen an ex-European 215 that lived a life of salt water. There are actual holes in the hull from corrosion, it’s amazing.

Security Pat-down

The other day I was travelling and managed to get ‘randomly selected’ for further search. Fine, whatever, that’s what we live with now. One of the options I was given by the female CATSA agent was a pat-down from a male agent. While I don’t care who pats me down, I guess it’s a policy of theirs to m...

So who got woken up by the Nuclear alert? Seems like it was just sent in error.
I think if I was about to be in big trouble for a near nuclear disaster down in sector 7G that I too would try to play the warning off as an error.

Since it looks like it’s out of the NRC I’d guess that button puts a tag of some sort on data that’s being recorded.

Re: I nearly hit a Roomba while flying?!?

I bet you saw Mylar party balloons. They tend to flop on their sides when set free and in my experience enough helium to make them nicely buoyant at ground level is just enough to get them to level off somewhere around 1,000 - 2,000 feet AGL.
