Re: Is being a Commercial Pilot in Canada worth it?

Worth it? If you are single and prefer to remain single, perhaps. If you want to live away from your paternal family and your roots, maybe. If you are willing to uproot at a moments notice and live in a remote or semi-remote community, maybe. I know a main-line airline pilot who had to uproot his wi...

Re: boeing 737 max retrurns coming back

To sum up: "The Boeing 757 is such a good aircraft"..

BTW what is a "..retrurns.."? And if it means "return", isn't "return coming back" redundant? Yes it is.

Re: Air density and pressure confusion (written PPL)

Hot air rises, because it is less dense (lighter) than the surrounding air. Hot air balloon come to mind? Cold air sinks, because it is more dense (heavier) than the surrounding air. Very cold and clear winter days are usually associated with High Pressure systems with corresponding high altimeter s...

Beards and moustaches stink. In Medieval times, beards were thought to protect the wearer's face from abrasions during fights. Like the myth of grey hair, beards could be seen as an indicator of wisdom, regardless of the idiocy of the wearer. In later eras, moustaches were seen as abbreviated beards...
