Re: AC Rampies walk off the job

I support the workers of Air Canada 100%. It should be no surprise to anyone that if the goverment plays fast and loose with the rules, so will some employees. Unfortunately, Lisa Raitt is a customer of Air Canada. If I flipped off one of my customers because I didn't like them or the way they treat...

At least four of my friends have had calls. Most with 500 hours more than I have but one had 500 less. Any suggestio...

When they offer good salaries to people without a type rating but significant industry experience that is when the bar will have been raised. There is just something wrong with Air Canada's management receiving a 1500% raise in the last ten years when the pilots haven't even had a cost of living inc...

Re: 42 day duty rule

I have never worked at a job where we were pushed to fly that much. I was just talking about it with one of the guys at work. I am asking about the days free from duty, not flight duty time. All of this assumes that you were doing short hops or some sort of "other duty." I think I've got this figure...

We all know that CARS were written by lawyers for lawyers. I'm just trying to remember and understand the extended duty rules. Here's my interpretation of 720.19 Requirements for Time Free from Duty (http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/regserv/cars/part7-standards-720-2153.htm#720_15) If you are 7...

Don't read anything into this...

I'm just curious what is going on with the LCC that was announced in the spring time. I'm not trying to start anything. I just haven't heard anything about it over the noise of the mandatory retirement debates.

Duty Day Limits

I can't seem to find a summary of 704 and 705 duty day limitations. Is it only the 7&30 day limits that change? There's a nice summary of 702 and 703 limits here:

http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/r ... htm#720_15

Anyone with a nice, simple summary of 704 and 705?

Re: GMX 200 & XM weather

Define North. Garmin won't support a good chunk of Canada (north of 63 I think) but they do support Alaska. Odds are it'll probably work, it's getting the certification to prove it that has stopped most companies I know of.

+1 for the LogTen Pro.
FWIW, Transport doesn't require companies to certify logbooks correct any longer. That's what your signature is for. If you have need to print out an electronic logbook for any reason Transport will accept it with your signature on top stating that the times are correct.
