Re: Finding a pilot job

Is this so-called “Captain” Kirk the same charlatan that used to charge people a “ consulting fee” for the privilege of being subject to his vast experience in the world of aviation? Many years ago a friend who tragically passed way too young, over a beer had opined that our role as pilots is to rea...

Training

As I understand it, in early April Air Canada initiated a policy where flight crew were not to travel to CAE YYZ for recurrent training unless they were YYZ based. A few days later Jazz followed suit. Has that policy been rescinded or modified recently? In addition, anyone with qualification at eith...

Re: 17 year TA?

Is this going to digress into a dick measuring contest? I'd rather show you pictures of my successful kids and happy chihuahuas than my T4 any day. I am happy with my Jazz situation pre MOS4 and I like now knowing what my final payday before retirement might look like. And that's a minimum without a...

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

Once upon a time not so long ago we had 40 minutes between flights at our hub. That allowed some time to help out at the back. Now maybe (if we are on time) it’s 20. Somewhere in that 20 I need to get a release, reload the printer when it fails, maybe chat with dispatch about the MEL item due to the...

Re: Drama Queen pax runs to CBC

So this morning I find the story to show it to someone, and I see it has been edited slightly to downplay the non-event somewhat. Interesting is that the story is originally posted September 3 and says "last updated" September 3 as well. Not true. It was updated at least a day or two later...

Weather app issues

Using two different apps for weather. Aeroweather on iPhone and Skyvector on iPad. Last two days all US weather stations are working fine but all Canadian Stations not loading or updating on either app. First thought is to dump and re-install. Anyone else having problems with this ? Any ideas? Thx. ...

Re: Fighter simulator Anaheim CA

Well I tried it. For the modest fee of $99 US I was entertained for three hours. The simulator is not full motion, and the program is designed for the non flyer. Basically Microsoft Flight Simulator but on a screen about 6'x8' in front of you. You get to dogfight seven other participants, and on sec...

Fighter simulator Anaheim CA

Has anyone tried this? Any good ?
21000 hours flying passengers in a straight line so this would definitely be different.
Thanks

Re: Air Transat YOW

A couple of hours of drywall mudding in the rec room has gone by... So, how hard did the crew advocate for having the passengers put in a more comfortable setting? "You're next for fuelling, really, we promise" rings pretty thin after a certain number of minutes, not hours, under these con...

Reminds me of the time my employer misspelled the name of the city in question in a flight ops memo. Everything else in that memo was hastily researched inaccurate ...
