Re: Fixed wing to chopper

Hey just wondering if anyone has made this change. If so where in Canada is cheap to do so? Do you still fly both? Was it worth it? How many hours can you transfer from fixed wing? I've always been interested in heli, so any info would be fantastic. I did both, I currently fly 705 Boeing and lucky ...

Re: Traduire "Wind your watch"

Bonjour à tous, Je traduis un texte sur les réunions virtuelles Zoom et l’auteur fait une analogie avec la vie des pilotes de ligne. There’s a tactic pilots use in tense situations; they tell themselves, “Wind your watch.” In other words, take a moment, breathe, pause. Savez-vous s’il existe une ex...

Re: Luxury Tax

I can’t see a reason why spending my cash on an airplane or boat is worthy of extra tax, but not spending it on a cottage (or second cottage), or flash jewellery, or a collection of good wine, or a decent violin, for example. can't we spend it the way we want? No, as long as you have a penny left, ...

Re: Pilot shortage State side

The pilot "shortage" may exist in the States but it is a short-term response to the ridiculous 1500 hour rule. You have old folks like me now changing careers. Aviation training programs have been exploding across the states. The Yankee pilots are there but still in training. This will all roll ove...

And if you haven't recieved any call back within 2 weeks from Jazz after the interview, you might be out of your luck. I got two friends move to porter an...

Re: Should I find a new instructor, or is this a normal first few lessons?

You’re a paying customer.
If you don’t feel comfortable with that instructor then go to management and explain why you don’t feel comfortable and if possible change instructor.
That instructor won’t change for you.
