Had a reporter use those exact words in reference to having a gear issue on my way home this summer. It’s not a localized event it seems haha.

Re: Conair

May want to reconsider your source for decision making. 90 pilots of which 1/4 have been there longer than 20 years. Or stick with your "I knew this guy once". Better still tell us about the person who opted out and why. I will confirm the accuracy of their claim for you. No need to get uppity. Tho...

Re: Conair

Was always a dream of mine to fly with them. But after a co worker went there last summer and then opted out and hearing some more info from another fella as well. Don’t think I’ll be applying.

That's an actual photo. They really did that to one or two planes.
There's one still flying down in the states I think.

Re: First RCAF C-295 makes Maiden Flight

Payload and range is what my friends in the service said. Herc would have been a better choice in many peoples' opinion.

But my DeHavilland fanboy'ism would've loved a revamped Buffalo.

Hahahahahah. Like the other day when the Twin didn't cancel his IFR 10+ miles out on a severe clear day and made us old short and not take off?

My DC has had a messed up speaker since day 1, just haven't been bothered enough to send it in... Maybe if I send them a message in all caps they'll give me a new headset... Move along, there’s nothing to see here... The only thing I wished to have seen was your edited posts. Too bad they didn't all...

You'll be flying the same routes, every day, with Summit. But you'll be home every night.

What's the consensus on the PFO email? Are you completely SOL? Do they just put you in a pool and pick from as necessary? Allowed to re-apply? Anybody know anyone that got a PFO and then successfully got hired later on?
