What's the advantage of this mod? Just noise suppression or does the back pressure help starting or something?

When the 737 gets reduced some of those guys will go and some of the 320 or LCC guys they bump will go.
Do you mean 767 or are you expecting the MAX is on it's way out?

Re: Overseas for RAIC

I don't think so. I worked in some awful places and though it took a year I did end up getting a new RAIC for YYZ on my return. They may ask for some things on top of the usual places, addresses, and dates. Letters from employers, for example. If you have others that can vouch for what you were doin...

Re: Lion Air 737 MAX 8 Crashes in Indoesia

Re: Elmer Ruddick Passes Away

Bill you might try contacting Nakina Air Service and asking for Millie Bourdignon. If she doesn't have the information you're after she would know who you can speak to. She's the busiest person I've ever met though so ask when would be a good time for her to talk.

Re: Huge discouragement

I'd recommend doing a road trip and visiting these places you're applying in person. When I was looking for my first job I thought the same as you, just send out resumes and if they need someone they'll call. The problem is everyone does this and they have huge stacks of resumes collecting dust. Aft...

Re: Mitts, Gloves, Boots, Coats for the North?

Wow I had no idea those things were called Garbage Mitts. I originally bought them as emergency backups to stick in my pockets but after trying them they became my main mitts for years. If they got too saturated with grime/oil/fuel you could just get a new pair at the Northern for cheap. I agree tha...

Re: What airplane was the most difficult to fly?

For me it was the Air Tractor AT-802. Very sensitive high lift wing that reacts to every little ripple in the air. A turbulent summer's day makes you feel like you just spent hours in a clothes dryer.

Re: ? Pilot shirts for the widebody pilot

A Cut Above has a relaxed fit as well as the standard tapered. Their site lists a 17.5 neck relaxed fit as for a 40 inch waist, 240 lbs person. Move up to the 18 inch neck and you're good to 44 inch waist and 270 lbs.

How wide we talking here? Aviation World sells the A Cut Above shirts up to a 19.5 neck. I'm told those are the shirts used by Delta Airlines and we've all seen how big those boys are.
