Re: Classic Dash replacement??

The Q is already operating into YGK That’s good news! Isn't a great airport for the Q though. Especially in the winter. 100' wide runway..if it's plowed to the edges (limit is 98' for the Q in order to be able to turn around) and 5000' if landing on 19. It's tight... Has anyone encountered issues t...

Re: Cathay Looking For Canadians

Visited HKG last summer. Approx $4000 USD for a 450 sqft apartment, in Central HK, near a metro station that would get you to the airport in 90 mins or so.

Logbook certification

I am building time privately. IE renting blocktime off of an owner of a cessna. How do I certify my logbook once the hours are done? Get the owner of the plane to sign "times in C-XXXX are correct from this date to this date" or attach photos of every single journey log entry to submit with my logbo...

Jazz new hire here. This place is super legit.

Re: New hire bids

Starting GS next week - trying to get to YYZ. If given the choice of the Q400 or the Classic at a different base, could any current Jazz folks weigh in on which of the two fleets would see faster movement to getting a YYZ base?

When asking hopeful candidates at a wasaya interview "why do you want to work here?" a perfectly acceptable answer is now "because I want to work at Jazz."

Re: Hawkair recession

CMA and NT air will likely take over the hawkair flying. It all went into the same bucket as far as I know. So it appears you have an instance of a unionized company (hawkair) being dissolved and having its flying distributed out to its non-unionized counterparts. On the social media front, twitter ...

Re: I heard there were direct entry ERJ Captains?

I think it's undid because people don't want that hassle. Unlike previously, where AC really had a shortage of captains, now I think they'll just let those spots go unfilled and die off as the airplane leaves the fleet. All 25 E190's are in the fleet until the end of 2019 (3 more years) and then th...
