Re: Fired?

Not a wheel should spin until they are back on property. Under what legal principle/right would a unionized pilot have to deny the employer his/her services? You can’t just not show up for work because you’re upset. Sure you can. You can not come to work for any reason. Your employer might not like...

Re: Float flying prospects?

I haven't got much knowledge on this but people smarter than me have said the 185 is harder to fly than the be beaver. If I had to guess I would think a 206 would be worse than a 185. 206 is far and away the worst Cessna seaplane. 185s are great. Beavers are way, way easier to fly though, from what...

Why, did 100 hour pilots crash their Beavers?

Re: Float flying prospects?

NW Ontario and Manitoba. Email everyone you find on PCC a resume and then follow up.

That’s how I did it at 225TT and 25 float.

You’ve got almost 100 hours on floats. That’s a Beaver job in some places.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

I’m pretty gutted I can’t make it to Bissett tomorrow, both Jonathan and Tanya made being away from home very easy for both my summers there. Made me feel right at home from day one. Nothing but the utmost generosity from both of them. I do hope they find out what happened so it doesn’t ever happen ...

Re: C Series lands at EGLC. Toronto Island loses out. Again.

Imagine if Porter got rid of some noisy Q400s and replaced them with reduced frequency on A220s? Somethingike a 3 for 2 ratio. The waterfront area would be much quieter. There’s a Falcon 20 that comes in here all the time. You barely know it’s here. And then Metros and MU-2s come in here and it’s t...

My brother is a dockhand at HA and has a great rapport with the pilots. Dunno where you hear this.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

Does anyone know if the aircraft in question had one of the upgross kits? I don’t think it would have been overweight on this flight but I’m more curious about the effect of years of an upgross kit applied to a plane and it’s effects. It did, but it was the 8367 pound one, and not the other (9000 p...

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

BWA has Walter/GE engines on their Otters and they’re not operating with that 9000 pound upgross or whatever it is.

I worked there for two summers. Very sad to hear this and my heart goes out to everyone involved.

I hope this sounds more supportive than mean but I think ant is right here. EI seems like a trick. I stopped applying for it a long time ago. It felt like too much hassle. I consider it another layer of taxes. Since around 1996 it slowly became much easier to just get another job. Good thing too. I...

Porter would have been out of business if they had them.
Not if they could’ve flown them from YTZ, I don’t think. They basically own the airport.

Funny to hear city folk assume these types nowadays instead of the Beav.
I just don’t hear a lot of Beavers ripping around the Muskokas.
