Re: The Ol' PFO

There's some annoying people at Jazz I'd rather not fly with. You've probably seen them too, on YouTube, or walking through the terminal with orange socks and their tunic open. They seem to be doing a good job keeping these people out until they can mature.

Re: Crooked FAA Inspector Jailed for Six Years

They're all crooked because they are time thieves. Try and get them on the phone or go to the office. You'll have better luck finding them at the nearest Tim Horton's or, if it's after 4 pm, at home.

I don't think the TSB did an investigation of that takeoff crash. Has anyone heard if they are going to be investigating this one?

Some routes farther into Europe yes, but no blanket augmented Atlantic crossings.
That sucks. WB flying would be a much better job if it wasn't for the un-augmented oceanic crossings.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

You'd be foolish not to accept a job at somewhere like United, Delta, or American as examples. Where skippers are making the equivalent of $500k+ CAD plus other bonuses like fully company paid pension. I'm sure there are carriers in Europe and Asia where the locals do just as well. Will they ever op...

Re: Dash-8 Runway Excursion

It looks like rwy 09 that the landed on has a steep downhill grade. Since only 2 crew were on board I assume this was a freighter which means the would be at or close to max weight. They probably aren't used to landing fully loaded downhill back at base since they'd normally be coming back empty. Th...

Re: New North Star Basler Accident

At least it is *near* a lake instead of *in* a lake. We're making progress! Is that because the lake was frozen? Did we ever find out for sure what caused the first accident? All I saw was that the engines were examined and had no mechanical fault. Contaminated wings on takeoff. It's only two airpl...

I mean he's not wrong. Year 3 at AC is the best paying pilot job I've even had and I've been a professional pilot for 15 years previously. It's a Canada wide problem.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

What's so bas about the dreaded reserve? Is it just not being able to plan your month? How often do you get called out? Are there months where you get paid just to sit at home? If you get called out can you pass it on to someone less senior than you if they are available? Is there a limit to that?

Re: C Series lands at EGLC. Toronto Island loses out. Again.

When a Q400 selects beta on landing at the Island you can hear it in Mississauga. The difference is it's a low pitch sound which is less irritating than a jet screeching.

Not to hijack this too much, but have you noticed how most crew riding in a shuttle don’t wear their seatbelts?

I believe there's still a pool. They won't tell you you're in it though, and an email saying they haven't finished reviewing your application means you're not in it yet.

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

Don't forget the media is wrong about just about every aviation story (and probably everything else too). One reporter misunderstands something then all the other journalists reprint it and cite the first one as their source.
