Re: WestJet Lease of Thomas Cook 757, plane age?

When I'm in the front of any specific aircraft with Westjet. I can't tell you how old that one plane is. There is absolutely zero chance anyone you call at Westjet will know any better. Possibly our director of flight technical, I suspect you will not get his number from here. Good luck though in fi...

I wont answer for Dave.
But since they do not have an iPhone App yet. I would suggest they do not use any of the previously mentioned searching methods.

Re: Westjet Problems at YVR

no 100kt call, just 80kts then v1 rotate.

At the weight they were going out at the V1 would have been around 145 kts.

Even at 110knots they were well below V1.

Re: 1/2 mile taxi vis... nobody knows what is going on!

For Check Pilot, I do have some issues with the rule that states that Maintenance can taxi an aircraft anywhere at the airport with no intention of taking off or landing. But we as pilots who have done RTO training ~ 140Kts in RVR 600 cannot taxi anywhere. Where is the risk higher, with the mtce per...

Re: DREAMliner???

The reason for the sale/lease back was to
maintain the correct percentages.
The ideal is to have 30% purchased
30% financed and
30% leased. If memory serves correct we
were heavy on the owned aircraft at that point
not 100% sure of that though.

Re: Ground Schools on hold??

Cannot remember the details exactly as laid out by Dave P. But if memory serves accurate,
1 G/S in Mar (6 new hires) then because of the Boeing strike we are not getting any more planes until summer or so. So no new hires until then.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
