Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

I wonder if ground workers would walk to their car in the parking lot at the end of their shift and go home or stay inside where it's safe if there's thunderstorms in the area. Really? Are you aware that during a red alert , ramp personnel are not allowed to be on the ramp? I wouldn’t be walking ar...

Re: Another Norseman...gone

Asking for posts to be removed because you don’t like what a person says is not the same as removing defamatory or slanderous posts. The wealth of experience and knowledge expressed by other, more eloquent posters, far outweigh, in my opinion, the silly and dangerous techniques brought up on this to...

Re: Toilets near to Ramp for employees

Maybe you should control liquid and solid food intake before a shift. Employers don't like people who frequently hide in washroom. Rather ignorant comment. How so? I guess you don’t know anyone with IBS? Colitis? How about a person that had bladder cancer? Many reasons why an employee would want to...

Re: 10 years ago today Colgan Air 3407

There is no magic number of flying hours that equates to being am experienced pilot. 5000 hours of straight and level at 35000+ feet really doesn’t mean that pilot would have a clue on how to handle an unscripted emergency. Some pilots do really swell in the sim. Not so good on the line. 250 hour pi...

How about “Yyz Centre, I would like to request Fl xxx”. Or “I would like to request Fl340 is possible “.

I just wish ATC would come back and say: “go ahead and request it” or “it is possible to request it”



Are you requesting a different Fl or not? Just say “. . . . 1234 request Fl xxx”

“I know I don’t look the part,” Stanford, 39, said in an interview Thursday. “So I just carry it with my driver’s license at all times.” Too bad there wasn't a photo of the doctor. Maybe she looks like a hippie or a cat lady. More to the story than the FAs being racist. http://fortune.com/2018/11/0...

If you're not using automation except for the first and last 500ft, you may be doing it wrong.
