Re: Walk-in Transport Canada Hamilton

I would just call. Many government agencies have an automated message stating their current policies before they ring through.

Photofly, its 15 pages long but even the government of Canada is not above the law, Omar Khadr got 10 million when he sued the Trudeau government.
You want to sue the government but won't skim through a 15 page document? You're entering a world of pain if you don't like to read.

Re: Got a letter from a Doctor at Transport regarding my class 01

How was your blood pressure / heart rate when you were in there? Any family history that they would know about? Out of curiosity are you over or under 40? BMI alone shouldn't trigger that response, but BMI with history, or other indicators might. I know they were rolling hard on sleep apnea tests fo...

Re: Hanging up the headset... anyone done it ? Anyone thinking of it?

There's a lot of wisdom here for options in departing aviation, I can't really add to that. The only thing that I would like to interject is the idea that we seem to be using the term aviation when it appears that we're speaking of airline flying. Talk of furloughs, seniority numbers and working onl...

They should hire one of the laid off pilots from avcanada, they know everything. At least 1000 mpic though, and an aviation diploma, we're talking about people's lives here.

Re: Kidney stones in pilots

We had a pilot in our flight department develop them later on. He was down for a few months but as soon as he could demonstrate with his doctor that he had them under control he was back to full strength. I don't recall them being part of the medical history questioning during the medical process, s...

Re: Airlines must adapt to survive

We've clearly been lulled to sleep by some of the best years our industry has ever seen. There is nothing new happening right now, the scale is a bit larger and the foe is a bit harder to vanquish. Aviation has always required the ability to be dynamic and adaptable. We've endured terrorism, gas sho...
