Re: Air Canada Pay

And it’s not changing anytime soon.

Each time I go for recurrent sim, there’s a lineup of guys in suits waiting to interview.

Guys litteraly step on each other to come here. And I don’t blame them.

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

Taking off with the apu running won't kill you in your aircraft type. It's not a killer item. I'll use the Navajo as an example, takeoff with the outboard tanks selected could put you in the trees at the end of the runway. It will kill you. Yeah? It’s definitely an undesired aircraft state.

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

Xander, why APU off? Because in most cases (99% of the time, unless one of the engine bleeds is MEL’d) it’s not necessary for takeoff. Furthermore, there is an altitude limitation for running the APU (33000’ on my aircraft) and if you run the APu above that, you will get an « APU EXEEDANCE » Eicas ...

I'm from Chicoutimi and as a young air cadet back in the 1990's we used to visit Bagotville once a year. They made a point to tell us that if Alcan hadn't been there, the Air Base would not be there.

Re: Pilots who pay to fly

List of human priorities:

1. Show me da money.

2. End.

That's why pilots pay to fly, and will continue to do so for quite some time.

Re: Q400 Flight Director

I used to hate the command bars too, but the more you use them the more they become instinctive.

What works for me is this: picture the intersection of the two bars as a point you have to chase. Just chase this point and before you know it it will become natural.

Enjoy the Q400.
