Re: Age 67 or 69

The issue isn’t a Canadian one. You can fly as a captain until your 112 in Canada is you can hold a medical. It’s other countries that are the issue. I’m not so sure the FAA gives a shit what Jerry has to say.

Re: United Airlines hiring goals

. If a young girl or person of a visible minority feel they can’t work in aviation that is an indication of poor parenting not poor hiring policies. I think that’s the first time I’ve heard that it’s the parents of an under-represented group that are actually to blame, so kudos to your wife for the...

Re: United Airlines hiring goals

I think a valid question to ask the airline pilot cadre is whether they actually want a more equal workplace or not. If they do, what are they prepared to do, and what are they prepared to give up, to achieve it? We don’t have to give up anything. Airlines should hire the best person for the job. F...

That is not an answer. It simply pushes the question down the road, so let me ask it. Why are they less acceptable to women?
Because men and women are different.

Re: United Airlines hiring goals

Hire the best person for the job. Period. Who cares what their gender or colour is. We should be striving for equal opportunity, not equal outcome. If you want to attract a more diverse people into a particular job do it at the grass routes level, not in preferential hiring practices. For as long a...

Re: Question or myth busting/confirming

And? I have my reasons. Couldn’t cut it in aviation and now hang around on an aviation forum. Pretty sad life. For the OP. If you really want to fly go for it. It won’t be all sunshine and roses but if you love what you do it’s worth it. Since COVID I’ve been working 9-5 jobs and I can’t imagine ha...

It's a big ask for an unstable field imo.

Re: Question or myth busting/confirming

If you want to make some sacrifices early on you can certainly make a go of it. If your main concern is staying close to mommy and daddy in the centre of the universe then it probably won’t work out for you. If you’ll follow the work wherever that may he for a few years you’ll be fine. Everyone I t...

Re: Do you check your killer items just prior to takeoff?

I’ve been party to countless takeoffs in a 172 with full flaps. Well, perhaps not countless, but several. So I suspect have many people here. The guilty party usually works it out by the time they reach the downwind, if not earlier. It has never occurred to me to declare a MAYDAY. If a pretakeoff c...

Re: Bucket list

I've run the numbers and could fly trans-Atlantic with a modest ferry tank. I could also fly trans-Pacific (PAOM-UHMD), but it's a long way to Nome, and an even longer way from Provideniya to anywhere more interesting (e.g. Vladivostok, Sapporo). And other issues, of course. 100LL? What's Russian f...

Re: Your First Day as a First Officer

My first day the legendary old timer said, “now my boy, you just sit there and watch unless I ask you for something.” And then our first approach was 1200RVR with 30kt winds. If rigpiggy is who I think he is he will be able to guess who my first day was with. Haha
