Re: summit air (pilot in waiting)

Per year or per month? The math only makes sense if it's $500 per month assuming the company spends in excess of $10k or more to get you those ratings.
I think what the poster was referring to is the number of hours flying a year!

Re: Renewing Expired Flight Instructor Rating

Having afew friends who renewed instructors ratings, they found it difficult to find a class 1 that did not want them to essentially redo the whole course dual part before they would recommend them. Fair enough to apoint. And in two out of three of them, that stipulation was made before they were as...

Re: Westjet Passenger Claims Corona Virus

I hope someone makes a video of his face when he gets sentenced to five years in prison, and another one when he is ordered to pay tens of thousands of dollars to the people on the flight who had their vacations ruined. No lawsuits. A court order so he cant declare bankruptcy and escape it. There ne...

Re: Waiting on my medical from TC - to start or not to start flight training?

Does TC really have a limit on alcohol? I did always wonder about the “ units” question on medicals. At first blush you sound way to honest to be a pilot. And I think it may have been the first time your medical examiner had ever seen a pilot declare he drank and smoked so much. Seriously, if your b...

Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

I don’t see any connection at all between gender and competence. There are good and poor pilots of both genders. The thing that caught my attention was the comments regarding float training for a pilot with a lot of time on type. That is not a gender issue. But it certainly could well be a managemen...

Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

Well, I asked before, but apparently my post disappeared because one is not suppose to even consider pilot incompetence as a possible factor in an accident sequence. It is not always about inexperience, and many inexperienced pilots fly floats very well. But the other question I asked was did TC not...

Re: Stuck above the clouds with no instruments

Re: Avro Arrow blueprints on display after sitting in Sask. man's home for decades

There was another gentleman in Saskatoon who worked as a design engineer on the Arrow. I believe his name was Paul,Mellin. He designed either the left or the right landing gear. He had about a four foot blueprint of it framed and on his wall. The pesky Official Secrets Act does not have an expiry da...

Re: Jazz the declining...

Come on guys. Cut Big Bird some slack.

He got booted out of a flight college, fired from two 703 jobs, and has been PFO’d from every major and Jazz twice.

At least that’s what I heard, and just like him, I am willing to speculate and disparage without facts.

Re: Luxury Tax

Re: Fokker 100 Crash in Almaty, Kazakhstan Dec 26,2019

would suggest the reason you don't take off with contaminated wings is not because "Transport might be on board" it is because there is no safe amount of contamination and there are sadly many examples of smoking holes due to this fact. That statement is, in my opinion, one of the reasons people ta...

Some years ago, a lear was making an approach and the pilots did not reset the altimeter. Flew into the ocean. All killed. Sometimes it just simple things. I can imagine being on an approach and suddenly the ground appears very close when your altimeter is telling you there should be hundreds of fee...

Unfortunately, lots of graveyard spirals end with the airplane impacting t...
