Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Because we've seen examples of 0/0 seats saving live with large descent rate, near vertical pitch down attitude?

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

When the Snowbird crash in Atlanta last year there was issues with the ejection sequence as well. From a Dec. 1, 2019 article on Avweb: Domon-Grenier was taken to a hospital as a precaution but released that evening. He reported “anomalies” with the ejection but the RCAF did not elaborate on what we...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Do you happen to know if the military pilot are trained not to attempt low altitude turnback after an engine failure on takeoff like civilian pilot are?

Terrible month for the military. Glad the pilot survive. Looked like a stall during some kind of wing over manuever after departure.

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

If true that is very sad. I feel terrible for the innocent passenger on board who had no say in the stunt. The record for lowest pass has been set and can not be beat. And 3000 meter below the ocean does not count.

Re: Airline fleets vs number of aircraft flying

Wouldn't it better to take an average over a period instead of a snapshot at 1600 GMT where different airline will be in different parts of their day?

Re: Aviation Degree Yes/No?

The best way to learn how to fly is do aerobatics

The best way to learn how to be an airline pilot is go directly to Jazz

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

No disrespect, but are you sure that’s a question you want to ask after 2013? FWIW, I wouldn’t hesitate to ride with 440 Sqn or Borek. Now, can you show some respect and stop with the military/non-military pilot nonsense? I didn't bring up the military/non-milatary topic I'm just responding to some...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

Luckily there is some overlap between civilian and military so we can compare apple to apple. Like would you rather get in the back of a twin otter and go to the north pole with a 20000 hour Kenn Borek captain or an RCAF twin otter pilot with "excellent training"?

They're not going to train 737 pilots to fly the Q400 in a couple of weeks. The one list was always a one way street.

Re: ? re Convair 580 drug bust mid '90's in PQ.

You are probably talking about Transat pilot Robert Piché. Pilot of the 330 that glided to the Azores after fuel starvation. "In 1983, Piché served 16 months of a 10-year sentence in prison after a plane he landed solo at a small airfield in the state of Georgia was found to be full of marijuana smu...

Probably not no. The only world airline to survive this will be flag carrier propped up by their government. Many will end up being nationalized too.

Re: Will Westjet survive?

It took 10 year of unprecedented economic growth for WestJet to get to a point where it added junkyard 767. Another couple years of more to get nice 787. It will take at least that long to get to that point again. The question is if Onex want to throw more money at it. If they are to continue they w...
