Re: Companies Laying off.

Down south, furloughs were rescinded and min credit pay re-established until September 30. Most pilots were put on a reduced long-call reserve schedule at my airline. This is a result of the bailout package. It's just delaying EI, really, but gives a bit of money in the interim.

Re: The fire bottle doesn't put out a tailpipe fire

On the MD, a dry motoring is required to prevent such a fire. Also, there is a tailpipe fire procedure, which does not involve the fire bottle.

Re: It is supposed to be a quarter g maneuver

Usually, only a few degrees of pitch change is required to resolve an RA. Every time I go to recurrent, the other pilot overreacts to the RA, making unnecessarily abrupt control inputs. This is brought about by the panicky nature of the aural RA and the fact that even many of the sim instructors bec...

Re: Leaving with a bond?

Why are you dealing with a bond in this hiring environment? At any rate, if something better comes along, jump ship. Paying the bond back doesn't protect you from a bad reference, by the way. If you weren't there long, don't use it as a reference. It's not as if you have PRIA, like down in the US wh...

Re: Confirming the Parallel Runway

Runway numbering can be interesting at times. But it doesn't always make sense(or maybe it does and different people interpret things differently). An aircraft recently landed on the wrong parallel. Using an ILS can be helpful in preventing such an occurrence but not all runways have an ILS operati...

Re: Ottawa Aviation Services out of business effective today

You'd think with people paying $80K up front, there would be adequate cash reserves for staff salary. I'm surprised that instructor let them get over $25K behind. I'd have been making plans to jump after 1 missed pay cycle. Maybe he had no other prospects? “We had some people who started to resign, ...

Re: Stuck above the clouds with no instruments

The Cessna procedure is the best one, in my opinion. Sit on your hands, and steer with your feet, using the turn coordinator for wings level info. Be trimmed at the top of descent. In practice, it works very well because it is simple and effective. Most students that I've worked with picked up on th...

The students' PTRs are required to be maintained by the FTU, under the direction of the CFI. The student always has the right to access their PTR. The accountable executive is responsible to ensure that the CFI has been doing this, or else action can be taken against the FTU OC, including suspension...

Just because the desination is technically dispatchable doesn't mean that you can land there. In an earlier post, someone stated that dispatch is predicated on dry/wet, which is correct. Snow/slush/wet ice is NOT taken into account for the dispatch requirement. It is incumbent on the crew to underst...
