Re: Is this The End of the Pilot Career

As humans, and pilots, we are very attached to our emotions and perspectives. But there are people who look at causes. At statistics. As emerging technology improves, there will maybe be a point in time when automation will prove to make fewer errors then pilots do. At that point, automation will be...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

The question was, what would this look like 30 years ago? Well, without Trump in the chair there would be at least 100,000 fewer dead Americans. Is this another science based fact? What actual data do you have to back this kind of claim? Or should we consign it to the same level of credibility that...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

Half of the US population eh? And all the President’s fault. According to official statistics , as of Sept 19, there were 200,000 covid “related” deaths in the US. And the majority were in New York and area in the early days. The US population is some 360,000,000. Rockie.....how is that 1/2 of the p...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

It is a self evident truth, if you say something is “ science based” . No need to provide additional facts or support. It would only confuse those Who refuse to believe. Drs are speaking out all over the world against lockdown. Fear is a huge motivator, and if people will just stay at home and self ...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

I am surprised that this is legal. Civil law however, may provide a remedy in terms of a class action. It might be that the airlines are just stalling for time. Yep, people will be pissed, but people forget so very quickly... Look how polls showed our slime ball PM’s continual ethics violations got ...

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

I guess that is how democracy works. Greenpeace decides .

Fossil fuels on aircraft are not going away anytime soon.
But we may see more high speed trains being built.
The electricity that powers them will come the wind or the sun...certainly not from fossil fuelled electricity generating stations.

Re: New Bottom Feeder's

Well rooster. I am retired. But during my career I worked for an airline that closed the doors and left us literally standing on the street....and pension funds gone. Furloughed a couple other times as well. But I never expected anyone higher than me on the seniority scale to step aside, take a redu...

Re: Partial Engine Failure in a Piston Twin

I am recalling some long ago lessons, but IIRC, one of the concerns if a Navajo loses partial power , it could be a turbo charger failure. And than can lead, very very fast, to a burned through spar and possible fuel tank ignition. I think Flight Safety recommended Shutting down the engine as a prec...

Re: Airlines need to shut down to survive

It is a bit complicated to explain in a short post. Generally, while Quebec can swing vote, the BQ and Trudeau personally, are strong there. Ontario offers the possibility of a majority govt without the need to garner a lot of quebec seats if the NDP, Bloc, and liberals split the seats there. In ter...

Re: Mental Health 2. Processing an accident

From your description it sounds like this is what we refer to as an accident. You are ok (at least physically). Airplanes can be fixed or replaced. As meatservo posted. Go easy on yourself. It is unfortunate in this time of social media, that there are those who do not want to wait to find out the f...

Mr.O’Toole speaks very good French. Maybe not as good as Mr A’tool, but certainly better than Chretien’s English. Quebec is not a conservative target. Ontario is. And its filled with lots of people who will sell their votes as long as the present govt keeps giving them money. After all, the rich wil...

Re: Airlines need to shut down to survive

That is rather troubling, but I think there was a lot of fat there to trim.particularity Pearson which has been gouging every place it can for years. The party is over, and raising departure fees, parking fees, tenant rents will be counterproductive in getting going again

Re: Airlines need to shut down to survive

From a strategic standpoint, if one considers that the market is going to shrink drastically for a few years, it might be that one company, or maybe two, want their competitors to fail. A bigger percentage of a smaller market for them. That actually may be the way it will naturally go, as there may ...

It seems to be part of an aviation career, though I dont suppose the flight colleges ever mention it.
