CBC reporter said airplane has a back up landing gear so no problems.
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.

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.

I expect we'll see a resumption of slamming of the RCAF in this thread in roughly T-24 hours.
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?

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

Jazz taxing to fast. If they'd taxi at 7 kts or less like I do it wouldn't have happen. No different than the Toronto yahoos going 100 km/hr on 401. Cut speed to 50 and be less accidents and lower insurance premiums.

Had mine done back in 2009/2010 and it's one of the best decisions I ever made. If you're an active person get PRK, there is a slight chance of the flap opening up with lasik if you get lots of dust in your eye and/or rub them aggressively (I believe that's what I was told).

PFO email received, 6 weeks and a few days after the interview.
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?
