Re: Accept this job offer?

Always accept the job at hand. At least you're building time toward your next job, if you're not happy where you go. This is a small industry, turning down a job can get you dubbed 'picky', and you might not get a call from your next resume. It's a tough reality, but it's just that, a reality. Chee...

Re: Accept this job offer?

If you think you have a good chance at a bird dog position with 1000 hrs multi time then yes, go fly the King Air. I would caution you though that, that sounds not quite right. I can see 1000hrs multi PIC as a minimum for a bird dog job, 1000 multi seems more like a fire detection position. Which is...

Re: Crab or sideslip landing on big jets?

It's EASy (sorry) to see why that technique is recommended on the Falcon 2000: No dihedral to speak of and very short gear legs. It would be very EASy (sorry again) to drag a wingtip on that aircraft. You are totally correct. On the initial course they told us that the risk of hitting a wingtip was...

Semantics, the difference is where they happened to be when they made their claim. Doesn't change the fact that they had been granted a better life in the US and still hated them for it.

it's part of the economic structure, and you are NOT allowed to simply opt out of it. Please provide legal reference, either Federal or Provincial that requires a person to pay a 20% tip, or any tip for that matter.
