Re: Pilots Getting a Tip

I am philosophically opposed to tipping in the first place. I think it's a degrading practice. Before anyone says "you must be a fun date" or anything like that, I recognize that in North America the tradition of tipping is so out of control that a great many service people depend on it to...

Re: Fired?

What bearing does one's avcanada membership history or current status as a pilot have on one's ability to spot photoshopped fakes? I suppose my comment was directed at his awareness of aviation issues as an "insider". I'll concede the point. I'm sorry to keep butting into this conversatio...

Re: Fired?

Sorry, I'm kind of out of the loop. Is that a REAL sign? If so, that's the stupidest advertising I've ever seen. Who would pick a service based on its unwillingness or inability to attract top talent? I mean money talks and people are mostly assholes but I didn't think this would ever be used as a ...

Re: Plane takes off with concrete tie down attached in Kelowna.

Another friend was in YPL with a Turbo Otter on skis. Got airborne with a cement filled tire attached to the tail. Apparently flew “ poorly “, so they came back and landed. I watched that one happen! The tire towed along nice and smooth.. I was there, too. For some reason the pilot thought landing ...

Wow. They built a giant radio-controlled plane. Big deal. The video is more ground-breaking than the actual aircraft.

Re: Interesting idea for fuel savings

And after resolving the above issues, why would we want to fly 2 airplanes that are flying the same route ... let’s say Boeing 737s in formation, when we can combine both of them in one larger plane like 777? Two 777 or A380-esque airplanes could realize some shared savings without the development ...

Re: Westjet mask policy

The Spanish flu wiped out over 3 percent of the world population. Covid so far has done what less than 0.01 percent of the world population? Still less deadly than heart disease and cancer? Well, the "first wave" of Spanish flu in the first quarter of 1918 didn't kill very many people, co...

Re: Mental Health 2. Processing an accident

Oh. Well I can assure you that mechanical failures and metal-fatigue are waiting in the wings for all of us. As a pilot, you are correct to assume responsibility for the OUTCOME of events, but you can hardly be expected to anticipate all of them. Go easy on yourself.

Re: Mental Health 2. Processing an accident

Not trolling, just asking: I can't work out how this incident could have possibly been your fault in any way. Other than the shock of having been in an accident, why is it bothering you enough to bring up mental health? Are you experiencing a bit of post-traumatic stress?

Re: Westjet mask policy

I'm kind of a latecomer to this discussion, so bear with me. So there's a respiratory disease making the rounds, which is pretty reliably reported to be quite serious, and which is transmitted mostly through contact with droplets that emerge from an infected person's mouth and nose. It's been satisf...

It wouldn't be the end of the world if certain "high net worth" people became "high viral load" people. As long as they stay in their executive mailing-tubes and stay away from the rest of us.

Re: Trump's back pocket

Hey guys, I was thinking of getting one of those "big green egg" charcoal grill/smoker things. My neighbour loves his. But I see now there's this "Kamado Joe" brand which looks very much the same. Does anyone have any experience with these? Are they just a knockoff?

Re: how long

In a pilotless airplane the autopilot will likely be the last working system in an airplane with dual engine failures and total power loss. It bloody well better be!! The thing that pisses me off about automation is the expectations vs the realities of its true benefits. I do believe that there isn...
