Re: What is wrong with the aviation industry?

and frankly, and realistically, it is much easier to get into a big jet in Europe then it is here (or anywhere in the world for that matter) That is not true. The path to a big jet in Europe is much shorter, but there are way fewer paths available. The pilots flying the big jets in Europe might hav...

Re: Will the industry ever be fully back?

It’ll take a while before everyone furloughed even gets back to work before a shortage but this will definitely cause many to leave the industry for other careers/retire early as well as discourage many from starting their flight training. I’d agree on 3-5 years unless they unleash more viruses on ...

Re: Will the industry ever be fully back?

I think you're right, especially for the airline side of things. Technology has evolved so much that the skills, knowledge and intelligence required to safely operate an airliner has been significantly reduced. This opened up the job to a much wider pool of applicants that can be succesfully trained...

If anything, CEWS is extremely good for aviation employers, as it allows them to retain highly trained workers at a subsidized rate. If every company would, hypothetically, get a loan valued...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

What about tanks that transfer into another tank?

Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

Just remember that the wastelands of aviation are littered with the airlines that unions broke. And plenty of card-carrying, dues-paying brothers and sisters from airlines that survived populate other industries after wage rollbacks, furloughs, lay-offs, or payouts ended their aviation careers.

That's because your vertical speed will be higher, but that's offset with a higher forward speed, giving the illusion of sinking like a brick yet being able to glide further.

Re: The personal log book thing.

Dunno. If they only want you to log some flights, why not say you must log only as many flights as necessary to be able to demonstrate recency. Isn't that exactly what (1) does? It doesn't specify "only", as you are allowed to log as much as you want. It's not the only regulation that's worded some...

Re: The personal log book thing.

I don't interpret it the way you do. My interpretation is that the purpose of the log is to show recency, and for that purpose, you are required to log every single flight. But there's never going to be a "right" answer, because there's no enforcement. If the goal was to log every flight, then why ...

Re: The personal log book thing.

After you have all your licenses and ratings there is no CAR's requirement to keep a log Don't you need to be able to prove recency/currency? A journey log book entry will suffice How would that work if you get ramp checked in plane B but it is your flight in plane A that made you current?

Re: All Trainees Fired

I liked how I got an angry phone call because an ATC manager was erroneously assuming I needed a training slot for my flight.
Even if I did, there were 2 departures and 2 arrivals in the hour I was flying. Made me scrach my head. :roll:

I was asked for my logbook in Heathrow when being ramp checked on a 777 by the CAA. Fortunately, I have such a thing and the Inspector was happy with my "Recency". The F/O was not asked; good thing, he didn't have one and we would have been grounded. AOPA just pointed out that a logbook is a legal ...
