Re: Staff House Accomodations

It's been awhile since I have been to YIV, is that the green house beside the terminal?

Staff House Accomodations

Hey Everybody; I was just wondering what staff houses are like this day in age. What sort of standards are seen as "the norm". I understand that there will be some differences across the 703, 704 and 705 operators. How many people out there have internet provided? How many bathrooms per person? How ...

Re: Electric C172 first test flight

I dunno Nark, this may be a good first step. You are right, 700lbs of batteries vs. 240lbs of fuel sounds pretty bad, but I am thinking that the electric motor is lighter than the internal combustion engine, changing that ratio some. Also, all the fuel lines are being removed in place of wiring. Thi...

Re: My HST rant

The reason your opposition leader is relatively silent, is because he realizes that the HST structure is actually much smarter than the old split GST-PST structure.... Certain things WILL cost more, but business investment increased 12% after the Atlantic provinces went to the HST, and over-all cost...

Re: My HST rant

This tax really has me going, but here is a question that has rattled the brain of EVERY single person I have asked. "Who is the leader of the official opposition in Ontario right now?" On the eve of such a blatant money grab, by a government that actually celebrated Ontario becoming a "have not" pr...

Re: 206 pay

Shinnyside; I worked for SLSS a couple of years ago, and you are way off on their pay. Not only was the salary much higher than that but nearly everything was looked after while there. You weren't going to get rich working there, but it was certainly a great place to work, an even better place for a...

Ipod Touch and Consumer Reports

I am in need of a new MP3 player, and have heard some really good things about the Ipod touch. I have never owned an Ipod, so for those of you out there who have, what do you think? Do you have any good websites for consumer goods reports and reviews?

Thanks in advance,

PnC

Re: Sandy Lake Seaplanes

Sandy Seaplane was the best entry level job I could have ever hoped for. It really jump started my career. I went there from an instructing position with 500 TT, I only got about 150 hrs in the year I worked for the flight school, and left Sandy with nearly 1100hrs 10 months later. It is about the o...

Re: Command Course (For first time Captains)

I am pretty new to this whole two crew thing, and I am an FO, BUT, I am of the opinion that your "Command Course" is every single day that you are flying with a Captain. The company I work for doesn't offer any kind of command and leadership training, you are expected to learn from the guys you fly ...

I took this quote off of the website posted about "The Harper Records".

And I love that practicality, that protection of the dream of the possible.” - ...

Re: Part-time Univ Courses

Talk to the registrar's office (or a guidance consellor) about enrolling as a part time mature student. Assuming you have been out of school for awhile, that is most likely your best course of action. With decreasing enrollment at just about all post-secondary education institutions, it shouldn't be...

Re: Deaf pilots?

When I was in the process of getting my first Cat 1, I came in slightly below the standards for hearing. I was able to get my flight instructor to sign off some papers saying that I could in fact hear everything in on the radio and over the intercom without difficulty. I have one good ear, and the o...

OK, lets assume for a minute the global warming is indeed a natural process of our dynamic atmosphere and that environmentalists are really not concerned about it, as Beck seems to believe.

Re: We're mad as hell

Just a thought on the original article here. The BC carbon tax was meant to persuade people from burning fuels that emit carbon into the atmosphere. So, by hitching up the old mare in the yard, and taking the wagon to town instead of the F150, or the Silverado, we have a cleaner (not counting the du...

Re: Safety improving at MFC?

So, I am pretty much drunk right now, and unfamiliar with the airport, but there is something about this that is really bugging me. Despite taking off on the opposite end of the runway, the student was still cleared for takeoff on the same piece of ashphalt that the Citation was on. Does it strike a...

Re: CL-415 put out ship fire

To start with, I know next to nothing about water bombing, and even less about ships, but my question here is, how much water/foam, etc would it take to start worrying about capsizing that ship? Surely the bilge pumps would not be able to keep up to two fire fighting tugs, pouring water in faster th...
