Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

twa22 Actually, I wasn’t thinking about your post specifically. But, I do agree with what you’re saying. We know passenger cabins are extremely safe due to the AC/Press Systems. In fact, there are only 44 confirmed COVID cases among 1 point something million passengers carried worldwide since this ...

Googling the word Bismillah makes me think this is an opportunity to pass up. Good luck though.

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

Sadly, the march will likely be as effective as the one made by proponents of firearms reform that happened recently - well, it was briefly mentioned by the media that a few "nut cases" marched in Ottawa demanding machine guns for all... This government could not care less about the opinions of gro...

Re: Corona Virus

Remember, if the media are panicking and publishing "breaking news" stories all the time, then there is no reason to panick. If the media are telling us there is no reason to panick, that's when you should start panicking. Sort of. It’s when the government tells you “not to worry and that they are ...

Re: Corona Virus

The asymptomatic and contagious thing is a common attribute of many illnesses - including more common influenza. Not particularly novel, in the case of 2019-nCoV. As a matter of fact, rather normal... People around the world freaked the @#$! out about SARS, a disease which infected less than 9,000 ...

Re: Coronavirus.

The real extent of this will be known after Festival Season. Reliable sources indicate that officials in China will severely punish anyone hoarding masks an...

Re: Carbon tax will drive up airline tickets

Carbon tax in Canada isn’t about the environment, it’s not about climate change either. It’s a simple transfer of wealth. Unless the vast cesspool that exists in the other side of the world cleans up its act, you paying a ‘carbon tax’ isn’t going to make a lick of difference ‘practically’ to solving...

It will change your life forever. But when you do, leave behind the mis-guided notion that your beloved Canada is...

flight seeing YZF

Anyone have a ski equipped plane offering short flightseeing tours off the ice in YZF first week of March?

I'd like to arrange something unique for some out of towners visiting then.

Re: What is your highest level of education?

Trump’s like - a smart person - who went to all the best schools and has the best words. Despite that advanced level of education and self-confidence he can’t hold a thought, read, or formulate a coherent sentence. Trudeau can do all three.

Re: Single Pilot Airliners?

One only needs to look at the Germanwings incident to understand why this is a bad idea for passenger operations. Not a good idea now, won't be a good idea in two decades. Incorrect. GermanWings tragedy has nothing to do with the number of crew members. It has EVERYTHING to do with the misguided no...
