Re: WJ ENCORE interview

And now for some accurate answers, First off, the interview is a technical exam that is fairly short and strait forward. Study your basic IFR and ATPL type of stuff, not big trick. Then you get the one on one behavioral interview with HR and an Encore pilot. There are lots of good resources out ther...

Re: Q400 Headset

At some point you will also dead head, so I like this combo:

Bose QC15 which you can get at Costco still.

And the uFly Mike, which has put the QC15 back in production.

Great in the flight deck or back in with the unwashed masses. Just be sure to keep a supply of AAA batteries.

Re: Choosing a flight school in the Vancouver area - BCIT vs

EagleEye, you have a BSc, so just do the flying. If you end up at PFC, you will meet and get to know pretty well all the current crop of BCIT students anyway.

Re: American Airlines pilot arrested in Detroit

Not sure what the "limit" is here as there can be some BAC due to normal metabolic processes. If I recall the EU under JAA is 0.02 or so. The idea being you are sober, this is of course the point. Also why many airlines WJ and AC for example have company policies of greater than 8 hours bottle to th...

Re: New Leaf (ULCC) starts February 12

I tried to see what a flight YWG - YXX would cost, but as soon as I hit book I get 404 not found. So I could not compare with all taxes and fees, but I looked YWG - YLW on AC, WestJet and NewLeaf as close as possible. To be fair you can not go direct YWG - YLW, but then again I seeing as NewLeaf's s...

Re: Air India ground crew sucked into engine

Will the difference with the A6 on the aircraft carrier is that he was under military power for the cat shot. So he was at full after burner and moving a lot more air than a high bypass at idle. So yeah I don't buy just randomly got sucked in.

Yes the G1000 supports upto 999 custom way points. When flying VFR I use to plug in the way points as some of them in YVR you need a GPS to get to. Alas I can not off the top of my head remeber how to do it. It has been 9 months.

There is no way your instructor should be falling asleep. I would tell his CFI, demand my money back for the flight, at very least the instructor portion of it as he was not instructing. You are paying him good money to instruct, not sleep. Give him a second chance and if he does it again, never fly...
