Re: Westjet CYHZ

What's so concerning is the mindset that diversion, even under such bad conditions, isn't an option. I've heard many discussions about whether operators should upgrade to WAAS or Halifax should upgrade to 4 ILSes, and in the end, if operators don't want to do the costly upgrade then they have to be...

Re: Metroliner

]Are you honestly claiming that low time pilots need *more* automation experience? Their manual flying skills have barely been developed yet manually flying a metro doesn’t benefit them as much as operating an autopilot? i admit I am surprised...

Re: No bounce landing

Not sure I can see the nose gear. Maybe shutoff engines, and didn’t feather because props would “dig”. Also takes quite a while for some engines to feather to stop

Hi guys, Just as a heads up, I applied for my ATPL at the YUL office back in December, and I just received an email concerning my hours as co-pilot on King Air A100.

Why would you spend millions certifying an aircraft with no customer base. At the time, the only possible customer were air canada or jazz. Both have vested interests in sucking up to the feds/pq govt.
