Re: Does no-one wear seatbelts?

I'm surprised no one has suggested climate change as the reason for the CAT. An overall change in climate extremes would have implications aloft, wouldn't you say? Oh I say. I also say these incidents will become more frequent simply because of the sheer increase An overall change in climate extrem...

Re: Max Height to Comfortably Fly Citation Encore

Better than a lear 35, which I would cut off at 6ft. A friend of mine is 6’2 and he has no issues with the usual 1-2.5 hour legs they fly in the citation. At 5’10 the thought of being 6’4 in a small citation would make me squirmy.

Current failure rates on the Command Sims are 80% - due in no small part to the relative lack of experience of the people attempting the upgrade.
Wow. Not a stellar reference for the training department then...
Are you going to believe everything you read on the internet? It's not 80%.

The people I know in that Muskoka/Parry Sound region have to drive south to Barrie.

Not sure who to recommend there.

The hours you do get are extremely valuable.

The hours we give are extremely valuable too. Or at least they're supposed to be.

The 737 400s In YLW no longer belong to Flair they have been returned to KFC. But that being said Current pilots are looking for options elsewhere. No communication from mgmt and constant changes. Flair had its chance and is blowing it.
Admit it, it's mostly because of that paint job.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

I see the ad is up now. What is the general time to upgrade? I'd come from corporate 604 world ~10,000 hours with 1500 PIC on a classic Boeing from another life. Still have 20+ years of flying left in me if I fly until 60.

Thanks,
