Re: Do the majors even consider a loser with a pardoned DUI?

I believe the question is to the extent of: "Have you been convicted of a crime for which a pardon has not been granted?" It's essentially as if it didn't happen once the pardon goes through.

Re: US turning people away at the boarder for investments in pot.

Well kinda ironic since you can buy a few Canadian cannabis stocks on US exchanges. Like Canopy growth for example. As far as the border cops are concerned I have never owned and currently have no cannabis stocks. It's their job to prove otherwise. If I get denied entry due to owning stocks of a Ca...

For me when the laser hit the windscreen it scattered light everywhere was disorienting at first. I had to look down and fly instruments as the idiot tracked me across the city. He did it a second time much closer on my way back, and continued until I circled his property with my landing light on s...

Re: New pot legislatiion brings on talk of pilot pee in a cup

While I support cannabis legalisation it is undoubtedly exposing our profession to a large regulatory risk. I would caution all pilots to refrain from cannabis use until firm guidelines are in place on an international level. With legalisation and in the absence of random testing one could arguably...

It's also laughable when the schedules are horrendous. There is one on there right now for 14 on 7 off. With the industry the way it is, who would ever take such a crappy schedule like that?
