Re: Chorus to be sold ?

Well let’s not get too carried away yet. We don’t know who it is or even if it will go through at all. If it were AC, I’d be happy if the lists were to remain separate though. I chose to stay at Jazz and have no desire to “fly the big planes” someday. you dont have too. if there is one list then yo...

Re: Chorus to be sold ?

Think Endeavour, PSA, Horizon. All regionals that were taken over by the major. Makes sense for AC now too if they have the capital. Brings control in-house and reduces the cost of feed even further. A transaction is a bargain at these prices. We seem to lag the US industry by a few years. Purchasin...

Rousseau has been involved with this deal from the beginning. It's as much his baby as Calin's.

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

The Atlantic bubble is going to kill off a significant portion of their tourism business. There are Canadians in other parts of the country that are offended that they can't travel there - especially since there aren't the same restrictions in other provinces. The sentiment is if they don't want our...

Re: Liberals may target the Transportation sector with very hefty Carbon taxes.

Sounds like the Liberals are backing down a bit from their grand plans to deal directly with COVID-19. Hopefully that is the case and it will give the opposition more time to organize for a general election so we can vote them out.

Re: Misfuelling Thread

That is correct. We were topped up with Jet A one time in a Navajo when we went into the terminal to check weather. Drained all the sumps well and they all showed avgas. Engines ran normal on the ground as I guess they were running on only avgas at that point. Once airborne the cylinder temps went ...

Re: Misfuelling Thread

[/quote] IIRC Jet A doesn’t mix very well with Avgas but it does float on top. I suppose in a pinch you could top that tank with 100LL and hedge your bet by only using it for cruise until you get to a maintenance base. Even then I’d only do it on the company’s recommendation so if fingers ever point...

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 satis...

Pretty sure AC could hang their hat on this and a judge or arbitrator would likely agree to temporary scope changes: Force Majeure means, by way of example only and without limitation, events of the nature and scale which have a significant deleterious impact on the operation or finances of the Comp...

I look at science Do you have copies of any peer reviewed papers on the subject? Or are you just repeating what you read online that others call 'the science'. Some interesting numbers these days.

At the risk of sounding like an old fart, I would never have considered turning down a job to stay on government assistance.

Re: Traning bond or ... non flying job

If you are receiving COVID pay (supplemented by Jazz) you are probably getting about the same as a 703 operator can afford to pay anyway, so unless you REALLY need the flight time, DON'T do it. And there lies a real problem with these support programs. People have the attitude that they have the ri...

Re: Traning bond or ... non flying job

Pretty sure the collective agreement at Jazz says that if they are to recall you while you have a contract or agreement with another employer, they can provide an LOA and that such a request shall not be unreasonably denied. Yes it does: .09 The Company may grant an LOA to any Pilot who is recalled...
