Can’t we all just get along?

My time in the sun diminishes as the horizon recedes. It has included some basking as well as some scarring melanoma. Could it have been otherwise? No doubt, but so-called wisdom usually only happens in retrospect. How far, indeed, have we come? Through one lens, the old battles remain unresolved. F...

Re: NOTAM: Hudson Bay region "missing gravity"

What is "deep space" defined as? The gravitational force of any mass is never zero anywhere in the universe; it may be greatly diminished, but it never disappears. However miniscule it may be, each of us experiences the gravitational force of galaxies billions of light-years distant. Wikip...

There are people who have a career in aviation that think gravity is zero in space? Seriously? I despair.

Re: What's the problem with pilots?

Every time you drive your car on the highway you have the dozens of lives in the cars around you in your hands, and you don't get paid for driving to the mall. Let’s be honest, you don’t care about those lives so much anyway; you care about your life and the lives of the people you know. You can’t c...

Re: College of Pilots?

I am simply asking questions. Try to take these questions on their merits alone, and decide for yourself whether the answers satisfy you. Try to forget for a minute who is asking the questions, since that only becomes relevant if one is trying to avoid giving direct answers. If the questions themsel...

Re: College of Pilots?

Hello Florch, Of course your views are valid; you are a person employed as a pilot in Canada. Your opinion and those of all others in your position should be actively solicited on this matter instead of your silence being taken as consent. Shifting power to such an organization is not the same as sh...

Re: College of Pilots?

Some observations: 1. To have an adversarial approach is to guarantee that you will find an adversary. Not everyone that disagrees is an adversary, nor is it wise or productive to take disagreement as a personal attack. 2. An enterprise that seeks to represent everyone usually ends up representing n...

Re: SMS Req'd for Foreign Ops in Canada?

Canadian SMS requirements do not apply to foreign operators, nor does Canada need to file an exception with ICAO. Along with other items in the CARs such as the content of the operations manual or qualifications of personnel, SMS is a requirement for the issuance and maintenance of a Canadian AOC. T...

Re: Valuing flying and protecting its future

The point of a tea ceremony is not to make tea. The practice is not meant to be a spectacle of beauty for tourists, it is not intended to enrich the participants, and it certainly isn’t intended to be a competitive demonstration of the only or best way to perform it. The point of it is to perform ea...

Re: Public Inquiry into Aviation Safety (Poll)

I don’t want to presume what you intended with your response, Widow, but it would seem that your line of reasoning is not much different from that offered by someone else on a previous thread on SMS. That is, people are too dumb or willfully negligent to know what is in their best interest, and they...

Re: Cargojet flying on behalf of Amerijet?

Perhaps the Cargojet pilots defend their company because they are knowledgeable of the facts and are in the best position to decide what is best for them. We didn’t “send our pilots”, the Chief Pilot and I operated all week. It is permitted to have in-house management pilots operate trips during a s...

Re: Cargojet flying on behalf of Amerijet?

In my opinion, there is never much point to a strike. To lose a month’s pay to gain a couple percent over a few years does not add up, and to paralyze the firm that pays you that wage seems counter-productive; once customers go away they rarely come back, especially in tough times like we have now a...
