Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I could put down a long list of my credentials, tell everyone that my mother birthed me in the navigator's seat of a dc-4 while my dad flew an NDB approach with 3 engines on fire, or...I could just say this and avoid looking foolish: Hindsight of course is golden , we will have to wait and see what ...

Re: Quarantine will kill airlines and tourism

They should hire one of the laid off pilots from avcanada, they know everything. At least 1000 mpic though, and an aviation diploma, we're talking about people's lives here. Common sense and critical thinking don’t require a university education. (Or 1000 mpic) 8) Terrific, I need 8 medicals done a...

Re: Kidney stones in pilots

We had a pilot in our flight department develop them later on. He was down for a few months but as soon as he could demonstrate with his doctor that he had them under control he was back to full strength. I don't recall them being part of the medical history questioning during the medical process, s...

Re: Vacation passangers age and health demographic

This very post is racist. What makes you qualified to make a statement like this? I know that there are probably plenty of "older" people that could kick your ass. If it wasn't for them snot-nosed pricks like you would have nothing. And by the way, learn how to spell. Combine one part lai...

Re: Vacation passangers age and health demographic

It will also be tough/costly to get out of country health insurance if you are over 65 and have any sort of health condition.

Captain Wilhelm Harder.

My condolences to his friends and family. Sad that it will take some time to organize a proper send off during all of these restrictions.

Salt of the earth, friendly folks take guns to protests to what...be friendly? I personally know lots of friendly folks and none of them feel it’s necessary to carry weapons in public. And I’ll ask again, what or who are they going to shoot? I don't think they are planning on shooting anyone. I’m s...

Re: Airlines must adapt to survive

We've clearly been lulled to sleep by some of the best years our industry has ever seen. There is nothing new happening right now, the scale is a bit larger and the foe is a bit harder to vanquish. Aviation has always required the ability to be dynamic and adaptable. We've endured terrorism, gas sho...

Re: In need of a 9/11 history lesson

I've been through so many of these now, I kinda just roll :roll: my eyes when I get told to get a seat and hold on. I think we need a new phrase. I've been told the music is stopping 4-5 times in my career thus far. The music doesn't stop, this is what aviation does; it rises and falls, rises and fa...

Re: Cargojet stll hiring

Let’s all just be honest. If it was a good place to work they wouldn’t be throwing out DEC adds for type rated guys in times like these. LAst time I checked, at least they're still working - unlike many of our comrades. I'm sure that most of us would rather have 100% of $130k than 100% of EI... I'd...
