Re: Amphib caravan wrecked in Northern Saskatchewan

It doesn't really matter what your gear is when when traction is absolutely zero. You have to fly the plane as if you were still in the air. That usually means crabbing as you slide down the ice like a curling stone. The really tricky part is you can't stand up after getting out of the plane without...

If you call TC Medical they have an email address listed on the voicemail. Don’t forget the E at the end of the French “civile”. They responded within a couple of days. Could you please type out the whole email address if you know it? I can't understand the French part. It's ontcivilaviationmedicin...

Or those irresponsible millennials that bought bread and meat from the store instead of hand milling the flour from the wheat you grew last summer or the buck you speared, skinned, and butchered with a shard of obsidian.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

There is no way Air Canada is in a financial position to buy another airline for nearly a billion dollars at this time. Even if they were the optics of dishing out that kind of cash while laying off a big chunk of your employees would be terrible. Perhaps in a couple years when things are returning ...

The competition bureau report is actually due out in a week. March 23rd. AC and AT have not been allowed to communicate with each other about this deal until that report is released. Even the AT CEO has said he expects this report to be negative. All of this was reported by the Financial Post but we...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

How will Transat stock go to zero? You mean that if air Canada doesn’t buy Transat, Transat is instantly going bankrupt and liquidation? If that’s the case then Transat is not worth anything, so why would AC buy them. Time to sell those Transat shares! Apparently they are worth nothing!/s Not insta...

Expected to go through according to the CEO of Transat. Who knows if doesn't, in the current market, his company's stock will literally go to zero.

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.

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.

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 ...
