Re: Pilot-In-Waiting

There were times when finding that first job was REALLY tough... I can attest to that, I remember looking for my first job when to get a position as a Navajo Captain one needed 5,000 hrs. King Air drivers where 20 years in and to fly a corporate jet, well only grey backs could get those jobs. Fact ...

Re: Westjet cover up: Alleged sexual assaults by pilot

Here is what the Ontario Human Rights Commission has to say: http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/sexual-harassm ... fact-sheet That's interesting and seems reasonable. Is there a similar definition that covers Federally regulated workers? And I'm unfamiliar with the OHRC who are they, do there definitions equ...

Re: Westjet cover up: Alleged sexual assaults by pilot

I'd like to preface my comment by saying that I am in no way accusing nor defending either the Pilot or FA's actions, I have no idea what happen therefore cannot pass judgement . I am simply making a comment on an interesting point this thread has brought up. That point is when you are in your hotel...

Re: Part 135 Checkride

Lately when I've been at FSI the instructors have been all over the 135 guys about how they must touch the wheels down something like 1000ft from the threshold -200ft/+700 (don't quote me on those numbers but it's around that) as touchdown point is on the check ride standard.

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...

This is directly out of the Falcon 2000EX EASY CODDE 2.

Re: Enerjet and the refugees

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.

Re: Enerjet and the refugees

750,000 refugees have settled in the USA since 9/11 and none have been arrested on terrorism charges. If terrorists want to get in they'll try the same ways they have in the past. That is just a wildly inaccurate statement. You may recall a pair of brothers who were in the US as refugees, the Tsarn...

Re: Taxis, pilots, and tipping

So..... you can't, its just your laymen opinion that people should tip. My issue isn't whether we should tip or not but rather your claim that "you are NOT allowed to simply opt out of it". You are representing that as fact which I don't think it is and you are not able to back up your claims. Hard...

it's part of the economic structure, and you are NOT allowed to simply opt out of it.

I've operated both systems in King Airs. So I am fully aware of the system limitations, I'd rather have a Garmin 430/530 than a 1000. The 3000 or 5000 are a different story I quite like them but the 1000 I didn't like.
