Evidence is piling up.

Any anecdotes from the pilots?
Times are tough. Pilots at Swoop have resorted to performing sexual favors in downtown CYHM just to make ends meat.

Hmmm... Two years vs 4, if I was in your shoes this would be the easiest decision of my life. Jesus you are going to school to become a pilot not a god damn doctor. PLEASE do yourself a favour and choose CONFED.

Not trying to derail this thread but I was curious. Does First Air still operate the C-130 or did they sell them?

Re: Elevators on a Cessna

I am curious to know about crashes 3 and 4. I do know a poster shared a story about a beech 18 crashing on Kag Lake with 3 people and everybody survived. I think it may have been under the Superior Airways thread.

$45K was the 1st year King Air Captain salary 19 years ago

How are you guys not getting a better wage after 19 years?!
EIC needs to pay their executives and shareholders first, the employees get the remaining scraps.

It amazes me how many King Air 100 crashes there have been over the years. Two this week.
And the king air is supposibly safer than the pc-12 because the KA has 2 engines. :rolleyes:

Lol bede you make TC sound like the boogy man that is watching your every move. Not as simple as watching cash trading hands they would also have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the cash was going beyond the operating expenses of the airplane.

Great way to start a career by breaking rules. I’m sure TC is not allowing this.
What rules would he or she be breaking? They are not being financially compensated on a non revenue flight with no passengers on board.

Re: EIC Stock Market Price

I always thought EIC's business model was questionable at best. Instead of running a single turd of a company we are going to pile a bunch of them together and pay an attractive dividend, that we cannot afford, to investors. :rolleyes:
