Re: How to improve flight training.

Thank you for making that your last post on the subject. It isnt going to happen. The musings of old guys because they stated, without basis, that the pilots of old were better. The accident stats do not back them up at all, despite their cherry picking this or that accident to confirm their bias. B...

Re: Jump Pilot or Aerial Photo Pilot?

Ask the photo ops folks to give you a guarantee in writing of 400 hrs for the season. Or pay you the difference if you do not fly 400. If they won’t do that it tells you a lot about their confidence. And I am pretty certain they wont. You took a job. Keep your word . This is why companies have bonds...

Re: Retirement age.

As I understand your argument laser, you feel that the over 60s should give up their jobs....so you and those like you can get to bigger checks faster. Is that about right? What entitles you more to the higher wage than the pilot you want to put out to pasture? Other than you want their job. That se...

Re: Retirement age.

Oh right, it's greed. I dont know how many I speak for, but that comment is offensive to me. I love flying, it is not what I do but who I am. At 65 they put me out to pasture. I found in the pasture whole new areas of flight. It gets me up in the morning. I look forward to “work”. You kids that got...

Re: Flight Training in Saskatoon through Mitchinson or Millennium?

50,000 flight hrs Do the math! The “revolving” enter when you want ground schools, are, in my opinion a waste. They are not optimized for learning.. Another “on demand” accommodation, Ground school is often overlooked as unimportant, but in the greater scheme of your flying career it is ver very im...

Re: Flight training cost

Well, rich and stupid is actually a pretty good marketing demographic if you can penetrate the market and it is large enough. No one know exactly what you get for the $700 admin fee? I love that. Unless someone can explain different, it is just a made up $700 fee. Someone had to ask, didn’t they? Se...

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

So, to treat this as the learning experience so many say come as a result of speculation. I could be wrong about this, but I do not think this is the first time a pilot or crew has departed with insufficient fuel and it has ended badly. I have to ask. How many posters here had to read about this to ...

Re: Bonds vs Wages

I have stated this so many times. If your employer asks you to do anything illegal....refuse and document it. Facts, not emotions. To many pilots try to jump bonds and then pull out the”I was pressured card”. But not a word of it mentioned every before they got their requirements and a call from the...

Guys, guys, what pressure do you speak of? There are none. No more overweight. No more busting minimums, paper whipping, or duty day issues. All those issues were resolved when TC brought in SMS for small operators. Absolutely no need tohave any company investigated beyond a review of the paperwork....

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

It is not that simple, as there are some other factors to be considered, but from my experience, almost certainly if there are no personal injury claims or large third party losses. In the grand scheme of things a simple hull loss is not a huge deal to an insurer. There is however, the matter of sub...

If you fly a King Air, you will, or should have, an understanding of the fuel system. It is, or should be, part of the training. If it is not,then your training organization is the place to learn it. If you do not fly a king air, exactly what value does learning about a king airs fuel system do for ...

Pelmet.

It is as you say.

People seem to enjoy speculating without any facts.
When the report does come, there seems to be no desire to learn from it.

BTW. I read all your accident posts. I have found lots to learn from them.

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

What bothers me is the rationalization that speculation is ok because it is all about learning. And that we need to know right now. I predict that the cause of this accident will not be the first time that it has happened. Which makes me wonder why the all fired rush to need to speculate at all. Or ...
