Re: Trudeau Throne Speech.. any comprehensive support for aviation?

Hmmm, has the airline industry fully reimbursed its passengers that had their flying cancelled? I know in Europe they are required to, at which point the various governments supoorted the airline industry. Real world example of a person I ran into last week. Pre-covid, booked flight for 6500 to Can...

Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

AC had problems because they were forced to buy a dead-in-the-water airline called Canadian. Riddled with debt. Why was AC forced to buy Canadian? Canadian was putting together the financing to buy AC and the federal government blocked the deal. In exchange for blocking Canadian from buying AC (bec...

Not nearly as ironic as those who voted for the liberals who are now begging for handouts from their 'I love Greta/Airplanes are killing the planet' leader.
They're just hypocrites, no irony there.

Re: Airlines demand 'concrete plan' for financial aid

The irony of those who hate the Liberals but are begging for handouts is not lost on me. So, the airline industry should collapse based on who is in the PM seat? If you were drowning and the only person there with their hand out to save you was the guy who slept with your wife, you would drown? Sou...

Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

*Scratching head* Am I missing the joke? Pretty sure every unionized airline in Canada and soon to be U.S laid off nearly their entire workforce, that includes airlines tied to ALPA and a lessor extent ACPA. My impression is the only ones who didn't really take any major hits were medevac, cargo and...

Touche. I was thinking when I wrote it, gramatically it didn't sound quite right. Gotta stop the late night surfing.

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

Caravan doesn't have buckets of power to fly though any problems. Caravans are under powered, and flying around northern Canada in the winter. It's a different animal. Anyway, I thought they decided requiring a PPC wasn't legal. The employer was obligated to do the required training. You mean where...

Hopefully the parts that fall off don’t hit my house! Always thinking about yerself I see 🧐 Do you want a lunch time union meeting ruined by debris? Well, since you put it that way...I guess I'm not interested either in getting Donnie Darkoed while discussing our current state of affairs.

Aren't they running dedicated cargo flights right now, which I would imagine would be more competitive than their typical cargo capacity?

Define "temporary".

Re: Morningstar

It's less that and more knowing the industry will correct in time and they want guys who actually want to put in a couple years.

But you are right, some 3000+ aplications. No AC or WS pilots need apply as per my source.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The CIRB protects a bad union like said union protects a garbage employee.

Good luck, you guys have your work cutout for you. Air Canada does not want a new union in there, so it's not just the CIRB and ACPA you are fighting, but the executives.

Enjoy the devil you know.

Re: how long

Step 1: Convince paying passengers to hop on with no one up front. Step 2: Developing security (I'm not talking steel doors) to keep people from hijacking the tech enroute. To get this certified and implemented at the airline level will be decades, particularly after the Max software debacle. It wil...

Get a Tesla P100D, blow the doors off nearly everything, have access to the HOV when you're commuting, and after an extended duty day, the thing practically drives itself home.
