Re: Anti-Gravity

Aparently NASA has anti-gravity Cavorite material from the moon, they keep it in a safe place because it's highly explosive if struck by lighting, So building an aircraft from this material is not a good idea, nonetheless the guys from Peterborough are going ahead with their project of building a V...

Re: General C Yeager RIP

. Yeager was born in 1923 in rural West Virginia. It should not surprise anyone that he had a long, documented history of racism and misogyny. It should disappoint everyone that over 7-plus decades as a conscious adult, he never apologized for or demonstrated any change in these views. Definitely s...

Re: Sad But Inevitable

So you don’t need to open the link if you’re not interested Thanks, I’m one of the haters of thread titles that give absolutely no clue of the content. Titles should provide enough info for you to make a decision. “broken-slinky” is doubly culpable by not only making the title meaningless, but furt...

Re: Use the Autofeather

Now to the actual subject. Question, why don't people use auto-feather, simple answer, the PT6 has a history of a very crappy and unreliable system. Auto feathering as you are taxiing, would you use that system and nothing changes, no matter how often you snag it. This has happened over the years a...

Re: Westjet mask policy

Jesus you people are stupid.

You are willfully dumb. You are an embarrassment to humanity. So it...

Up to the next year if you fly two crew only.
6 months if single pilot then you just send at this time another attestation.

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

I always thought it hilarious when training aircraft would announce they’re conducting the “simulated RNAV approach.” What the hell a simulated RNAV? You’re doing the RNAV approach, in real life, not in a simulator. Who cares if the weather is VMC? Call it what it is. Correct me if I'm wrong but in...

Re: Coronavirus Numbers

I don't think an argument needs to be made. The projection v. reality speaks for itself. It's clear that the expert forecast was way off and that projection was what drove policy. We are well under the deaths and cases that were projected. Those big numbers were designed to scare people and justify...

Re: #Swoopprez Out!

You’re right, let me clarify. We could live years with 0 income. The gov benefits help just that much more. I'm happy for you but it is far for being the norm, able to live years with 0 income. On a side note, there is this possibility that airlines might be ordered to fill only one seat out of two...

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

If you have option B - then there's nothing else to really consider imho. The name of the game now is SURVIVAL - having an income will make that much easier. If you have surplus funds then you can look at option A. Just be aware that it is unknown how long this will go on for and whether your job w...
