Re: Question about Reimbursement of Costs

cant be c. because if he gets dropped elsewhere, it would be considered a charter no? Getting dropped off elsewhere isn't a problem. The issue here is that the pax asked to get dropped off.

Perhaps we should lower our expectations a bit to make a more realistic timeline. I would say the argument is th...

Good turnout. Would probably benefit your cause if you leave the trump MAGA movement south of the border tho. We don’t need that garbage in Canada.

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

Reviving this thread to ask, who's gotten a non flying job, any leads or ideas? I don't know what it is, being furloughed or just being in a different industry. There has to be some jobs that look favourably on us?

Re: What's with the "circle check" before takeoff?

I'm curious where it started as well, I never did or do it now, but I know a few who were told too. I could imagine in a small uncontrolled field with NORDO traffic sure, but that's all I can think of

Re: College and university aviation programs?

Most are limiting how many can fly, and so many are behind because of covid and they aren't taking in another cohort next year. So fair to say, theyll be behind for a while. I'd say go private if timeframe is a concern

I want to renew mine but also don't want to spend 1000$ + (I got quoted 600 for just the ride...) and not have a gig lined up. But I also emailed several places and got told no. There's no a surplus of instructors, how things change

Lol we all know this, it's just the way it is. I'm sure someone here will tell you, either deal with it or don't start in aviation professionally. It sucks but Canada is unique, and there's alot of factors to get us to where we are today. As to your age, tbh I'd say just buy a plane and do your ppl ...

You must realize that this race to the bottom didn't happen overnight or because one pilot was desperate to get a job. This is a systematic destruction happenin...
