I think Canadian pilots have a better shot at finding employment elsewhere - UK, EU, Aus/NZ, Asia, Middle East.

Re: USA vs Canadian Airline Career

I think it's pretty difficult to just move down there and get a Green Card because you want to live there. Good luck though, I would have if I could have. That is true. Employer-sponsored visas seem to be the only way for us Canadian pilots. And there are virtually no US airlines that sponsor Canad...

In a logbook. What if I'm filed IFR but not in IMC? Just keep a tally of every time you enter a cloud on a scrap of paper. Add them up at the end of the flight, and log .1 IMC for each... on a good flight you can probably log up to 20 hours of instrument time. 20 hours of instrument time in a 14-ho...

Log your air time as IFR. It's what I was taught and I'm sure many others.

It may seem a bit much in today's climate but companies can ask for whatever they want to filter out every joe blow trying to take advantage of the industry's rise in demand.

Re: New North Star Basler Accident (Number 3)

Knowing how North Star operates, the crew of the downed Basler were probably told to run back to Red Lake from Sachigo, switch into the last remaining Basler and fly cargo for the rest of the day.
