Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

To those still looking for a job: Consider landscaping during the summer and snow removal during the winter. I did landscaping during the summer and although hard work, it pays more than minimum wage ($18.50 for me) and the hours are 8-10 hours of pay a day. It’s just like being up north again! : :...

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

We’re all on the sidelines, bud. Some of us just decided to follow the rules and to not be a douchebag calling it a “stupid mask”. Go fly a kite.

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

Reviving this thread to ask, who's gotten a non flying job, any leads or ideas? I don't know what it is, being furloughed or just being in a different industry. There has to be some jobs that look favourably on us? It took me months to figure that out. It seems employers either think that we are no...

Just guessing here but I think he misinterpreted your statement about a government diet as an “information diet” when you actually meant it about food.

https://youtu.be/vOClXAg9nQU Okay I'm convinced... If everyone wears a mask for 10 weeks, covid could be eradicated/s I just had a family member pass away with covid, (second cousin) he had COPD, heavy smoker, drank lots. His general health was bad and at the beginning of this pandemic he called me...

Re: Pilot outlook 2020-2039

Join the Airforce. Best training available and you can be a civilian pilot after your tour when aviation is going all out again. The need and desire to travel has not ended. It is just temporarily suspended. Right now this is the most underrated and almost surefire way to get your foot in the pilot...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

The Danish “Danmask-20” study is out now. As we suspected, masks do not protect the wearer very much. https://www.rt.com/news/507157-danish-study-coronavirus-mask-sudy/ https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/M20-6817 “However, there are several caveats .

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

So what makes me an asshole? That I don’t share the same beliefs as you and I feel that mask policy has been ineffective? Why does this offend everyone so much? All I’m saying is I don’t think the masks work so I am going to live my life like it doesn’t work. But this is why people are offended, be...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

I'm happy to wear the mask to appease you, but I don't think for one second that it will prevent me from giving you covid if you don't keep distance. Okay this is good...at least now you’re complying...that’s all the mainstream wants. Listen, I admit I can’t know 100% whether masks work or not. How...

Re: Questions for Jazz pilots

250hrs and a diploma won’t be enough to secure a spot at the airlines anymore, except for a few lucky lotto winners basically. I really hate to say but it for 95% of newly minted pilots now it is most likely back to old routine of road tripping just to find a job hucking bags, cleaning planes, and s...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

Given the meticulously precautionary nature of the pilot job, I’d be surprised if any of our kind were anti-mask. Just think of the Swiss cheese model. The absence of masks would just be another slice with a hole in it. Even if they were 1% effective it would still be better than nothing. Any facial...
