Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

Oh I agree 100% it's an airplane issue. Float planes flip. I know multiple career float pilots that have flipped them. There is no way anyone should be putting innocent people in a float plane without a reasonable chance of egress available to them via a simple to operate emergency exit. These are t...

Was the pilot insurable?
I have worked for operators where insurance has said it's up to you to decide who flies your airplanes. We trust you enough to not put incompetent people in there. So it's not always the insurance company making that call.

Re: The Ol' PFO

It's probably the Jazz deal that's making things difficult for them. They have to be sure they are meeting quotas. They can't just turn people away quickly anymore since they might need them if no one better comes along.

If they weren't aligned with the runway maybe airframe icing and loss of control were a factor again.

There are much better operators than Emirates. That kind of statement means he's is pretty out of touch. I'm surprised the boomer didn't say go to Flying Tigers or "Sunwings". Of course he has to maintain the antagonistic labor relation standpoint. Wouldn't want to show any weakness with an reopener...

Use to take 10 years to FO wide body. Crazy!!!! Making 50 grand in the right seat , I think AC pilots should not look any other airline crew in the eyes as we walk by in the terminal. We suck......

Re: The challenges for us all in flying green

There's a lot they could do to cut emissions in aviation. Even just having ground crew ready to marshal you in instead of sitting there for 5 minutes every time you arrive in Pearson would save tons of carbon in the atmosphere. If ground power and air-conditioning was put on the aircraft as soon as ...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Only rich kids will sign up for this, which means Jazz is in it for the money and not quality of candidates. Definitely lost respect for Jazz. I don't know if I would give my kid $126k to get a $40k a year job, sounds like a pretty terrible offer. They want a post secondary education too so factor ...

Re: 50 of 737NG planes grounded after cracks found - Boeing Safety issue again

WestJet also had a 737 with 97k cycles on it. I'd imagine it's the cycles that get you not the hours. Remember the Hawaiian 737 convertible. It had 89k cycles.

Re: 50 of 737NG planes grounded after cracks found - Boeing Safety issue again

737 wings are so floppy anyways. They bounce up and down like three feet when just taxiing around! Trolling are we? That wins the most retarded statement of the year, hands down. :prayer: watch a B52 takeoff and see what wing flex is really like. WestJet had a 737 with more than 100k flight hours o...

If you got IP banned for the above comment that's ridiculous. You just said what we are all thinking. Skimping on maintenance of primary flight instruments shows little regard for the lives of your crews and borders on criminally negligent manslaughter. I'd never work for a company that did that.

No, the non-binary people feel they are neither male nor female. That's what this is catering to I think.
They are entitled to feel that way, but do they have a vagina or penis?
