Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

Lots of airplanes parked these days, probably some good deals available for a well capitalized and experienced Boeing operator. There are some interesting marketing opportunities today, already that website emphasizes the 'not a max' aspect. Going forward, existing operators have left a terrible bad...

Re: “Apprentice pilot” job is back

The deaths are the only somewhat true story, but since something like 60,000 people in Canada die in hospital of malpractice and infectious contamination every year, not really something to be deathly concerned about. You are suggesting that folks are dieing at a rate of 165 a day from malpractise ...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Thankfully the tutor didn’t continue straight ahead, resulting in ejecting into the city. If you look at the satellite view and extend runway centerline, strait ahead is over the river for a considerable distance. Strait ahead would have been into the river, not the city. Dont think they could have...

The same restriction exists for those coming into Canada as well.

10 years. Got the pink slip that put me on the street Jan 1990. The next time into an airplane was April of 2000. Everything was expired, so I basically started at the very beginning.
