Re: KFC DC10

The Dc10 fleet has a bad record of what?? The 10 has been around for more than 30 years and has had it's fair share of incidents/accidents...what is your point? Fundamentally this is another Douglas workhorse, it is just a first gen widebody that is showing it's age like 747 classics..

Re: Export C of A

An export C of A is a nice thing to have as it means that the aircraft may be in decent shape depending on the country it is coming from, but that is all it is..Transport may give you some credit for having one and it may ease their workload a bit but they still have to do their due diligence..

Re: AME "E" Class Avionics Career Advice

From what I can read in the regs an M2 with type endorsement can do all the work and release the aircraft or he can oversee all the work being done and, if satisfied, can release the aircraft..An E license can only sign for the work they have accomplished and they also have to follow endorsement rul...

Re: Hypothetical Question about AC - CCAA again or Liquidate

LH has no interest in AC, they are German, what could they possibly want from AC other than some prime slots??? Seriously Ac is going down the chute this time, all over folks, there will be some reincarnation to maintain Canadian service but it will be a shadow of the former AC and that will not be ...

Re: Air Canada Strapped for Cash

Those are the facts put quite simply, sure one could go on and on as most AC's will but the reality is Canadian should have been let go to sink...oh well it is just the ongoing Canadian airline saga and I , for one, am so much happier since I left that rathole : )
