So far a mixture of Xbox, booze, facebook, wine, the covid channel on tv, avcanada, sleeping in, and staying up late. Zero productivity at all.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I wonder where we’d be looking these days... I heard Costco is hiring. Real funny.... You do realize many of us have been there for well over 20 years and are also close to retirement but not quite ready to pull the plug? Our #1 is a founding member (1987) who still has 5 years of flying ahead of h...

Re: Bearskin Crash — FEB 25, 2020 — Dryden, ON

Off the side, barely outside the lights, couldn’t have been going very fast. “Crash” is a big overstatement. They towed it out of the snowbank once they had a towbar I’ve been told. Runway was closed for 3 hrs. Passenger released from hospital a couple hrs later, got a few stitches I heard. Crash i...

Re: CAP GEN Amendments

In all seriousness, I don't think there are any changes to the CAP GEN this time around. We get it through content locker so when it updates, the old one is automatically deleted, so I can't compare them side by side. Typically the line in the margin next to the change tells you something is differe...

Brake lights and turn signals should be required on all aircraft. Throw in a horn too for good measure.

Seems like everything ended up as it should, both aircraft stopped in time.
And "How's my flying dial 1800-EAT-$HIT" and "Dog is my Co-Pilot" bumper stickers

A big +1 from me

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

We're literally sacrificing the good of the many for the needs of the few. Shitty catch 22 to be in. It's not shitty at all. It's basic ethics.

The bad news from our Industry is coming faster than I can type it.

This is an Aviation News website - makes for depressing reading.
It's not all bad news. Ed Force One is still flying, that's pretty cool. Albeit in another livery.

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

What bothers me is that the of 2 curves we keep seeing, the first one more people die, but it's over quickly. The second one, the health care system has time to cope but it drags on 3 times as long. We're literally sacrificing the good of the many for the needs of the few. Shitty catch 22 to be in.

I had a student wreck the nose gear of a 172. First solo too. Bounced, panicked, porpoised, Basically "Encored" onto the runway.
At least she didn't Jazz it all the way back to Montreal.

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

People say that this crisis is temporary and that once things pick up, it will be better than before or at least back to normal. This is simply not true. It will take a very long time for the economy to wake up once the virus stops spreading. Maybe, but remember AC was 937 pilots short, Jazz must h...

I thought the sticking point of the One List was the backwards flow in the event of this exact scenario? Shouldn't WS pilots be guaranteed spots at Encore in order of seniority now?

There is a difference. The C burns less due to having less powerful engines. Do you need me to connect the dots more than that?

Re: Near ground collision in Trail

The authorities know pasco doesn't operate to balance field, just like they know they operate no alternate IFR in D's but using C fuel flow numbers. It's just how things are done at the south terminal.

Ok. I guess I was looking at an old Google Earth overhead. So there's 5000 feet there now.
I guess they just plumb forgot to update the CFS then because it still 4001x75'. Even 5000' isn't enough to balance unless you have anti skid.
