Re: Fired?

you have been a member of this forum for 15 years and made almost 2500 posts. I’m going to hazard a guess that you are a pilot working in the industry (I may be wrong). If you were fooled by the photo, an uninformed member of the public might be too, What bearing does one's avcanada membership hist...

Re: ‘Reckless’ Canadian pilots commit major quarantine breach in Darwin

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Firstly in the USA do you even know how many states and municipalities have mandatory masks? 34 states, that’s right, including one of the hardest hit NY. Funny if you look at the graph for NY, mandatory masks happened end of may, however covid cases were already on the decline. Now for some reason...

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

But the level of entitlement I'm seeing lately from high time pilots its just unbelievable. I've seen no evidence that anyone complaining here is "high time" or has any experience that - given the last 5 years in aviation - couldn't have been easily obtained by anyone in their mid to late...

Re: Liberals may target the Transportation sector with very hefty Carbon taxes.

If you voted liberal, you get what you deserve. No sympathy for anyone who voted this hippie goofball in. I'm not sure why anyone would need your sympathy regarding a carbon tax, but it's disturbing to see these burgeoning caustic partisan attitudes grow more prevalent in this country. It's the sam...

Re: Northern Airlines Receive Gov't Funding

Sorry, I misspoke earlier. I would be curious to know how they arrived at the dollar values for each operator. At first glance it looks like it could be operator size, but that doesn't seem to hold up to scrutiny.

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

BTW these guys had only been on duty for about 6 hours, it's up to the crew to ensure the rest, scheduling had no part in it. Unless you have first hand knowledge of the schedules in question that's a pretty bold statement, considering your average northern operator's proclivity for fucking with cr...

Re: Landing legally off-airport for recreation

You'll be told to use the grass to the left/right of runway X between taxiways Y and Z. I can't speak to all airports, but at the couple I've done this at, the controllers will not "tell you" to do anything involved in operating beyond the designated takeoff and landing areas. I suspect i...

Re: Cargojet777

You mean this climate wherein freight operations have not been negatively affected? In fact, quite the opposite? A company that has had revenue grow 15% per year for the last 5 years and their stock price increase by 740%? If not now, then when?
