Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

I'm calling shenanigans on the guy who says his dog flew the sim. It's like saying I have experience in a 152, so does my dog and nobody cares. I think you've got it wrong Beef, it sounds like his dog flew the mighty 152. Different ball game altogether. Besides, I can't say I've ever seen an FTU wh...

Re: Joining downwind at CYCD

I think if they had a taller building they probably would be a tower. Hard to be taken seriously as "Nanaimo Tower" when you're really "Nanaimo two-floor walkup". No worse than the days of hearing the CFI of Principal Air acting as judge, jury, and executioner on a handheld transceiver at Chilliwack.

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

The carbon tax in BC has also resulted in the lowest income taxes for 90% of us. You have to make well into six figures to pay what Albertans pay in income tax. If you buy smart and change your lifestyle you can get out of paying a lot of PST and carbon tax. We also have a balanced budget. Compare ...

You get an 8.5 x 11" piece of paper, could be on one of those fancier heavy stocked papers and usually there's a shiny stamp on it...

Re: Thomas Cook on the edge of bankrupcy

Looks like Condor will be the next to fall. 49% owned by Thomas Cook, requesting an immediate bridge loan from the German government of two hundred million Euros.
