I know almost nothing of either Air Georgian or an RJ, but I knew of a time when a serious question would never illicit responses like this. Shame on you.

Just to answer your question though, I wouldn't think most pilots would be monitoring other non-ATC radio sites, at least not while they are flying. Many jets have SELCAL, which notifies them with a chime alert when ATC is attempting to conta...

Re: Dash 7 choices...

I remember seeing a full-performance landing (albeit without payload) that couldn't have been more than a 800' foot rollout. Incredibly short for an aircraft of that size! Overseas, I once watched a Dash 7 crew fly a take-off with an oversized payload. It was a much longer takeoff from what I had be...

Things in the middle east should spark up over the next year or so. In 2 weeks, Benjamin Netanyahou will come to power with his coalition government.

This is a very good job for a family guy with quite a lot of time spent at home! I also get to help with the housework & cooking. Bonus!!!! :P

Re: Oil rig chopper down at sea

At the news conference, they mentioned that the survivor suits have the potential to protect the passengers for up to 30 hours. (In a later statement, they refined this somewhat in saying that based on a 30-year old male, survivability was around 24 Hours). I would think that survival could be possi...
