Re: Air Canada is in bad shape

Here's an idea, AC. Offer a lifetime unlimited -- or even with max miles per year -- flight pass, with fair upgrade options to business class. It's been done before. The right price, people might bite. American Airlines did this back in the day. It was a financial disaster, AC would know this.

Re: Are FTU's Busy?

We have a full load of students at my FTU. Honestly aside from being closed for 5 weeks at the beginning of all this nothing has changed. We still have easily over 75% of our students wanting to go all the way (CPL MIFR etc) and about 25% just for the PPL

Re: Electric powered Dash 8 is coming

The other issue with battery's I imagine would be the weight. A full and empty battery weighs the same. Hydrogen is probably the future. Once they can figure out to make it economically viable as others here pointed out.

I think so. There is nothing in the CARs I see saying the rides got to be within x amount of time.

Class II to Class I

Is there a period of time you must be a class 2 before going for a class 1? Or could you do a class II ride then a 1 ride a few days after if you were ready?

Re: Will the industry ever be fully back?

Just my opinion but I don’t think aviation really ever recovered from 9/11. By recovery, I mean a return to original wage and working conditions prior to the crisis. Aviation just came out of an unprecedented hiring spree.. contracts were signed during this period that denuded wage and working cond...

Re: Renewing Expired Flight Instructor Rating

I can't even get FTUs to call me back when I want to book recurrent Instructor training. Business must be good.

Everything has been done in PDF format, I've never sent any paper at all and never walked in a TC office.

When they say zero tolerance its ZERO tolerance. For some reason people seem to forget this. The passenger is probably lying through his teeth about how it all came to be.
