Re: Transport Canada Website Down

Maybe, just hopefully maybe, the government of Canada is updating their website so that it looks like it has kept up with change. A website whose front page looks like it's still stuck in 2004? Not to mention navigating that website... I don't know about anyone else, but I would actually appreciate...

Re: Lawyer or no lawyer?

I never did, I just looked on the transport Canada website to make sure he was the owner, and got an AME to give the plane a quick look over.

Re: Are some high wing singles a bad idea for survey

According to the late John Frank, the author of "Cessna 210 buyers guide" (i have the book and it's a wealth of knowledge on the 210) the later cantilever wing 210s can take a greater structural load than the earlier strut braced models, the carry thru spar is quite noticeable when you look up at th...

Re: Frustrations of a Military ATC and the Big Leap

Contrary to what Lotro has said, I think there is a fast track option for military ATC controllers...I've met a few military controllers who has received an offer from Nav Canada to skip the entire application process and to receive a conversion course/OJT. Not only that but they would receive simi...

I interviewed in January and it was around 900/week on the 337, accommodations paid for. Schedule was something like 23 on/5 off
Thanks, that's pretty decent pay if it is take home actually, and the accommodation is paid so that's even better. Thank you.

Re: Air Taxi Franchise idea?

Sounds like a great idea. Starting a small airline otherwise would require buckets of money. Someone told me it's way cheaper to buy a small air operator than to build one from scratch, obviously easier as well. I'd seriously think of buying into a franchise like you describe, I've always wanted to ...

Re: QUick Question around time off during training

Never thought of it that way. Hopefully the people you don't want to come can't make it but you still invited them and therefore don't look like a jerk. "Oh, I'm so sorry you can't make it, I had no idea you had other important things going on in your life. :lol: "

I can't really even believe after someone has gone thru all the hoops and gotten to the training stage at Nav Canada that they would actually ask for time off for a wedding. The last time I re-arranged my life for a wedding they divorced after 3 months anyway. I could see if a loved one was dying in...

You would think people would just automatically put their seatbelt on when they are seated, just like a car.

Re: Airport Parking Ruled a Taxable Benefit

Think about how many times the average 30 year old vehicle has been taxed in its life, way more than it cost when it was new. If the government could figure out a way to tax that blender you bought at a garage sale they would.

Re: What happens to a Pilot in Case of an accident

Maybe, but a thought that might put you at ease a bit more: in the end it is all about money. If you crash an A320, you will never make enough money to put a dent in that damage, even if you caused the damage. You'd probably be in more trouble if you crash the boss's 206 due to your gross negligenc...

I would say the losses have more to do with people being busy and too self involved to bother. People here complaining how a quick piece of paper from the cops is too overbearing.
