Re: Skylease Cargo 747 Runway Overrun YHZ Nov 7, 2018

Here's a video I came across on facebook of the demolition. It was hard to watch the fate of such a marvelous piece of engineering and design. https://www.facebook.com/chris.freeman.52493/videos/10156492046365831/ I'm surprised they didn't salvage the "good" parts, eg, windshields.

Picking one category like pay might put one above another, however each have different benefits and disadvantages. Jazz pays well...

Re: Quebec ready to support Bombardier

Their Aerospace Division is sinking fast. Quebec will attempt to pump more money, like a trauma surgeon pumps blood. But no amount of blood can stop this amount of bleeding. They make money on Trains and Powersports, I predict they will eventually liquidate their aerospace division to save the rest ...

The inventive is working at a place that treats you well. Places that don't have bonds usually don't need a bonds, because their employees are happy enough.

Don't push it is the point!

Might depend on who you get... might depend on you... why risk it?

You might not get denied, but you don't want the chance it might be left hanging over you.

Wait until you're pardoned, don't risk it.

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

The above posts contain a lot of speculation and false information. 1. The United States (U.S.) does not deny entry to persons that has a "Driving Under the Influence" (DUI) conviction. That's it. Period. You are 100% incorrect about that. They can, and they do. You can read INS s.212 for details.

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. They can't ask, and you don't have to answer. Also, stay out of the USA until the pardon is granted. The Am...

Helicopter Crash - Near Calgary

https://globalnews.ca/news/4333227/pilo ... lgary/amp/

Says an ultralight helicopter in the article. I didn't know there was a category for that? Do they mean a homebuilt helicopter or perhaps a gyro?
