Re: BA Strike, Canada pay attention

If they want them back they'll have to negotiate it along with their salary demands. I don't think that the airlines in Canada would be able to get away with it. If I recall correctly, removing someone's benefits is akin to reducing their pay, which is considered to be constructive dismissal. Once ...

Re: Federal Election — aircraft use

Given the heightened security surrounding flying federal leaders perhaps these question are best left unanswered on a public forum? If someone needed to know how the flying gets done they would know by now. Give me a break if security was such a big deal they wouldn’t paint it with Conservative par...

Why do you need anything? Just call it an off strip landing or put a little platform / dock out and land there.

Re: WS jumpseat question

If you are already grumbling about work conditions during initial maybe you should have stayed put where you were before. Short term pain...long term gain comes to mind. The reason you can't be listed for jump seat is the way you can commute for free ( AC does not have this) is you must be able to ...

Re: Boeing Max.

The craziest part is the Ethiopian crew had it fixed but instead of manually trimming the airplane after turning off the electric trim they turned it back on causing the MCAS to run again.

They will sell back the company to AC in 2 years for 5.5B or more and the government will approve it!
That’s a very poor return in investment, especially for a private equity firm. Only 5% / year would not be acceptable.

Re: August Equip Bid

Can jazz lose 500 pilots next year ? That’s about 1/3 of the list if I’m not mistaken then, is there even enough FO’s with AA’s to upgrade that many? This is not a shot at Jazz, I don’t think any of the airlines except maybe WJ or AC have enough right seat experience to backfill CPT spots when 1/3 o...

Re: August Equip Bid

Not all, but if after the whole shakedown with Transat AC only needs 400 pilots instead of 800 that drops the Jazz requirement to 240. I don’t want people to make a decision assuming AC is going to take almost 500 Jazz pilots next year.

Now that AC bid is out Jazz will need lots of pilots if AC needs to fill each GS with 60% of Jazz pilots.

I think Jazz will need to give AC 480 pilots ... ouch
That assuming the 600+ Transat pilots aren’t filling a bunch of them

Would it be easier to modernize the 300 or just shorten the -400?
I’d imagine use everything except the avionics from a 300 and throw in the 400 avionics and fadec control. Maybe take the PW124’s or 127’s and toss them in a 300

Re: C150 spin versus C152

The vertical tail of the 152 is the same size as the 150M. Indeed, firewall aft, there are only two aerodynamic differences between the 150M and the 152: 40 flaps vs 30 (which does not affect spinning), and the 152 elevator has 3 degrees more down travel. The extra 3 degrees of down elevator availa...
