Re: Corona Virus

“There are more than 340 presumptive and confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the country, with one known death linked to the virus” From CBC this morning, I would give the country kudos for heading this off at the pass. What is interesting and more to the point gratifying,little if any bickering amo...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

I also hope that this crisis is not justification for further underemployment which seemed to be the case in each previous downturns. -wages never caught up after austerity measures. What did happen was the manufacturing of consent for reduced WAWCON for workers in the private sector and some of the...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

I was a naysayer in the beginning of this and I’m starting to change my mind. So much of our economy is based on trade of goods and services and consistent and increasing consumption of resources. Social interaction is also based on consumption. People have over extended themselves, wages have not k...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

This whole thing has me spinning myself. Two low time jobs in, pipes and skydiving with a little more than 800 hours. Finished my IATRA and Group one a month ago, then proceeded to fire out resumes to all the places I have wanted to work long time. Even told the skydive job I'd bow out and let them...

Re: Corona Virus

I have family who work in healthcare. From their perspective, they doubt there will be a significant impact to aviation and the economy from this “ novel” virus.- expect to see effects somewhere between the common cold and a nasty seasonal flu. I’m hoping their take on the situation turns out to be ...

Re: Corona Virus

Much ado about nothing. All this hype and hysteria over a “ novel” flu. But, the hysteria is having an impact or so it would seem.

I think this will blow over quickly once the media becomes bored.

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

As in this virus is not as bad as the flu? There has been far more deaths from the flu this year than the coronavirus since it surfaced. How is this a multi year black swan event? This virus has been recently discovered...Are you inferring it’s been around longer than portrayed? There is a market co...

Re: Pretty sobering opinion

He has some points that are valid. I’ve gone from flying to being out of aviation, working seasonally or back on the ramp during these downturns. They’re no fun.. I’ve gone backwards because supply exceeds demands during these times. I also agree that aviation follows the economic trends. On the fli...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

I’m not personally worried about the Coronavirus. The flu is far deadlier.. Each year, the CDC/ WHO/ health authorities warn of how bad the flu season is forecast to be. People don’t stop traveling... I think it will be interesting to see how current dynamics in the industry play out. With this bein...

CATSA Aircrew Protocol

Hi, Where can CATSA’s aircrew screening protocol be found? Can they ask for my phone and conduct a search of my phone? Company IPad? When my lunch packs are confiscated when I am an operating crew member because they had a bad day. Then I end up throwing out my meals. What recourse do I have? Is CAT...

Re: Why can they get passenger rights but no proper rest and fatigue rules?

The general public has boundaries, agency Sense of self worth bordering on entitlement.

Pilots on that other hands.. many of us lack boundaries and self worth and sign self deprecating contracts amidst unprecedented hiring . 🤷🏻‍♂️

Re: Question regarding, manifests, airlines and regulations. Boarded a plane, fell asleep and missed my stop

Headcount and the manifest should match 100%. With this being said, it’s your responsibility to wakeup at your required stop. I’d have a hard time ( personally) asking for compensation in a case like this personally. However, that’s just me. I can just see myself asking my employer for a wakeup call...

Re: Is Air North reliable?

I’ve worked for Air North and also have relied on Air North as a passenger/ northerner.

I’ve seen AC cancel far more often than 4N.

You cannot go wrong with choosing them as your airline into/ out of Whitehorse.

Enjoy the meal, warm cookie and excellent customer service. Also, enjoy Whitehorse!

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

I have to ask though, why do you want to invest this much money into a crap paying job? A regular commercial license and multi-IFR will cost less and still get you a higher paying job if you're willing to leave a major city. It's not a done deal, I just seen the announcement and was a little excite...
