Re: The Return to Normal?

I made no comparison at all.
Do you know what a comparison is?
Also, I didn't call anyone an anti-vaxxer.
I guess reading comprehension is hard. But by all means, tell us how to best fix this pesky pandemic issue.

Not surprised my logic is lost on some Neither am I, considering that your argument is simplistic to the point of being fatalist and ignores any science beyond basic evolution.

Re: past use of marijuana and drugs

No polygraph, but you should actually include an admission of guilt with your application. If you don't, during the "interview process" you will be given a heavy dose of sodium pentothal to determine the truth regarding your past misadventures in narcotics. The irony being of course, that you will c...

Re: The Return to Normal?

Sorry but I disagree. Most people won't want their way of life changed over this. Actually, to that extent I'm not fully disagreeing, but I do think there will be a stronger and quicker recovery than people think. I hope for everyone's sake, I'm right. lol With all due respect, and considering I kn...

Re: Extended furlough and going back up North

I'm going to guess that if you have to ask the internet, you're unlikely to get a seat. Those jobs will now be few and far between and competition for them will now be stiff. As in, it's going to the CP's 10,000 hour buddy. If reaching out on avcanada is your first move, you're probably not well con...

Re: That didn't take long...

You'll have to forgive me for not paying close attention to Transwest job ads for the past several years. However, I do still think it's somewhat outrageous to sign a bond for a beaver job, considering the cost of a beaver checkout is pretty much just that of fuel at 80 litres/hour or so. So, what a...

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

I think if anything this is going to exacerbate the shortage going forward. While that demand is acutely surpressed, there is no doubt that level of travel demand will return. What is certain is any entry level pilots or prospective pilots will be scared away from the industry after this most recen...

Re: In need of a 9/11 history lesson

The music doesn't stop. For the last year or so, (or more) there have been multiple pilot job ads per day on this site. Currently the most recent one is showing at 12 days ago. For all intents and purposes, the music has stopped. If you don't believe it, try an experiment: fire off a resume to an o...

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

Look up the time requirements for the ATPL. Fly enough to complete ALL of the PIC time requirements. That way, regardless of whether you eventually take a right seat or left seat job, you won't have to worry about not having the PIC time for your AAs.

It was confirmed independently by several countries that COVID-19 is a natural virus and not one cultivated in a lab.
I'd be very curious to know how that could possibly be determined.

Re: Furlough with bond

The word "furlough" implies that you are laid-off with recall rights. That means that the company still has contractual obligations to you, and therefore I would think that you have obligations to them as well. Yeah, those contractual obligations include they pay you. Which they're choosing not to ...
