Re: Relief Pilots

I'm kind of glad they're gone. A lot of the RP's I talked to had significant responsibilities outside of work and told me that's why they bid RP. Which makes you kind of wonder if they're just along for the ride more or less.

I think the issue is flat pay pilot were already taking a hit for the good of the group.
Unbelievable that they had the results of a very recent member survey saying flat pay was the biggest issue, and then they agreed to make it even worse.

So you could retire at 60 but you want more pension. Unicorns are real they're just fat, grey, and called rhinos.

Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

Aviation authorities seem to lack the resources or expertise to thoroughly validate a modern airliner so they rely on the manufacturer to self validate. Which of course may have a conflict of interest.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Ah I thought they modernized the seats in the early 2000's. That explains why the F-18 ejection seat worked much better at an even worse angle and altitude. These seats effectively drove them into the ground. You'd have to wonder if they'd be better off staying onboard and trying to pull out of the ...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

It was not 90 degree nose down when they ejected. Not even close. Airspeed was actually pretty low too due to just coming out of the spin. I thought modern ejection seats were supposed to be zero-zero certified. Their chutes weren't even close to being open despite traveling a fair distance through ...

Yes. And a bunch over 65.
There's 8.
I stand corrected. I was told there were 30-40 just recently, but your numbers are probably more accurate. :wink:
Maybe they got offered a late retirement package.

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

The government wage subsidy being applied at Air Canada has nothing to do with the Transat deal. It's been offered to every company in Canada that has lost revenues. You'd have to be pure evil to keep your employees laid off when the government is offering free money to pay their wages.
