Re: Westjet ad.

If you're sub 40 years old this is a fantastic opportunity. Do it, do it now.

Unless this is a bait and switch tactic to get you into an Encore or Swoosh spot.

Re: North Cariboo job add

Schedule is 5 on 2 off (sort of) or they may want you to do 10 and 4. Sort of because your weekend doesn't start till 4 am saturday morning. Pay is bad. Have a look at the Contrails requirements on here if you don't meet them it's worse than bad. There is no flow to the 705 world except for FOs, the...

Re: Are people in the Airlines as miserable as those here?

There's a couple miserable people here, but that has nothing to do with flying, they'd be miserable anywhere, and I'm sure they're miserable at home. I think us commuters have a higher level of miserableness than non commuters, but again that's a choice that that technically has nothing to do with t...

funny they went with the max as Indigo purchased over 400 Neo's a few years back. I imagine right about now they might be changing their minds... MAX not back until summer now. If they still are backed by Indigo it may be an excellent time to make the move away from Boeing. According to Wiki, Indig...

When the height of the snowbank exceeds the height of your wings, it might be time to start refusing to land there until better snow removal infrastructure is put in place.

It's shocking to me that any crew (of a 705 operation no less) would depart with a headcount that didn't match the manifest.
Me too, they'd never do that where I work. We've actually rechecked every single boarding pass and ID for this exact reason. Oh well we're close enough lets go? :lol:

Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

Sounds like at least one thing in common with the Jazz Q write off wrt a bounced landing recovery although this report doesn't actually say that. I'm assuming the aircraft’s weight on wheels sensor indicated that the aircraft had briefly returned to air mode. that "air mode" means no weight on wheel...

They had to fly on the peanut gyro because of a low battery voltage? That doesn't sound right to me. No, they flew VMC. Luckily, but the ramifications of ending up in IMC are there.

Re: Declared Emergency by Phone

I was told of a scary scenario with a Beech 200 and a new G1000 installation. There's a prop RPM red arc and it's something weird like 1750-1800 RPM, if you accidentally set the props there it sets up a harmonic that causes the screens all to shut down. Not sure the 300 has such a limitation, are th...

Judgement call. It was a stressful day, and I believe what I saw was a panic attack, but I left it up to him to deal with. If it was a CVA, or an MI, or a loss of consciousness, I'd have had not choice but to report it. He's gone on to have a very successful career so I can only assume he's figured ...

I had this happen to me, and I just covered for the guy, flew single pilot and didn't tell anybody. Maybe not the smartest thing to do but it's what I would want someone to do for me.

Re: How long for hands on throttle after takeoff

Keeping one hand on the thrust levers and one on the control column below 10 000' seems to be expected of the PF unless actively using that hand to manipulate the MCP here. I do remember having a throttle roll back on me on the 1900, and the prop sync masked it quite well. The first indication I had...
