Re: Central Mountain Air FO Pay

I don’t think anyone is paying 57,000 for a 1900 captain in Canada in 2020. I also don’t think anyone at a place where they are paying six figures for a 1900 capt is going to go from zero to hero in two or three years. Maybe Wasaya, but then you deserve it. Unless you’re coming in as a DEC in which ...

Re: Central Mountain Air FO Pay

And in 20 years time you’re still a garbage man assuming city council hasn’t run off with all the property tax money or they don’t have robots doing your job while that pilot who was there for all of two or three years is commanding big jets for big money working less than half the month.

Re: BA suspends MAX production

Don’t worry, they have a big dumb rocket that they are being sole sourced on in spite of competitors offering better rockets for cheaper. They are too big to fail.

That’s your one trillion dollar deficit at work, five times what Canada’s is as measured by GDP.

Re: Swoop ?

Your comparing a regional E175 to a 737-800? It's about half the size. I’m comparing an E175 to E190. The E175 operated by Sky Regional. The E190 operated by Air Canada. What is the difference in salary between the two? And if you justify it because one jet it slightly smaller than the other jet of...

Re: Bombardier to relocate its Global aircraft final assembly site

Are aircraft undergoing flight test subject to those exorbitant landing fees? LOL... I'm sure an agreement to that subject was one of the clauses in the contract.

Wow L-39. I know you want to feel really good about your accomplishments. And you should. No pilot who went all the way up through the air force had it easy.

Comparing truck drivers to pilots is like comparing a goalie to a zamboni driver. Yeah it’s tough to figure out how to drive the zamboni, to control the fluid and the edgers or whatever. How to not run into the boards and make that oval pattern. Even harder is choreographed Zamboni driving so you do...

There’s your white male privilege card, Complex. Not still being blamed for an accident after the cause was found to be the failure of a poorly designed system. Do you remember those Air Transat or Air Canada pilots who’s mistakes turned their jets into gliders in a bad light. Almost nobody does.

It failed because we weren’t willing to underwrite it at any costs like Airbus and Embraer or even Boeing would be if it came down to it.

Operational decisions.

Strategic decisions, like whether or not to bomb ISIS or deploy ground troops instead, are usually made by people as far removed from the military as possible.

Most of these so called reasons are a lack of communication between student and instructors. Either the instructor not stating it clearly or more likely the student not listening.

Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

Lots of people die every year turning from tailwinds to headwinds and visa versa. Remember to throttle back or throttle up.

And everyone knows that the way to land is the fishing for a greaser method. If an instructor tells you otherwise you should find another one.
