Re: Mick the Dick From Dublin Mouths Off Again

I moved it. I couldn't be bothered to clean up all the language and figured there'd be a rage if I pulled it to do it later. So here it sits. Clean up "...all the language"? It's the same language that is in it now. This is an aviation forum, not Stockwell Day's church group. This post was about an...

Re: To all the Haters on AvCanada . . .

Something's not right. I put up a thread yesterday about the head of an airline publicly claiming that first officers were a waste of air and that airliners only needed a single pilot and that the FA's could step in if that bloke had a heart attack or was otherwise disabled. The thread was moved. To...

Re: Mick the Dick From Dublin Mouths Off Again

Do not fall into the English way of underestimating the genius of the Irish. The British Empire was built by Scots and Irish.It was the English shopkeeper mentality that let it slide into obscurity. Every other airline in the world is following his moves, closer than watching their own shares falli...

Re: Michael O'leary's new low

Unless you believe that having an IQ less than your waist size is a demographic for Ryanair passengers, I don't see how you could characterize this as a brilliant marketing move. The average chimpanzee would think, "if this guy is proposing this, what is he pulling off that we don't know about". Not...

Mick the Dick From Dublin Mouths Off Again

The most obnoxious buttplug in all of aviation now wants to get rid of the cojo, let the computer fly the airplane, and train stewardesses, as they are still called over there, to take over if the captain has a heart attack. http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2010/0904/breaking14.html Quel...

Re: Plane carrying 4 missing in BC

He said rumours about the plane being involved in a drug smuggling operation were "completely unsubstantiated." ....So which is it? :? I have a hard time thin...

Not yet, as far as I know. Hopefully, the families have gone to lawyers over the despicable journalism by Fabian Dawson in the Province about the flight being "...linked to drugs". Not a shred of proof over that. This guy's a piece of work. He's being sued now over a story he wrote about that guy wh...

BMI, body mass index, is flavor of the year at Transport Canada this year. Expect a lot of testing when you go for your medical, a lot more than normal.

Re: C-GENG Cessna 414 departs YKZ missing nr Nova Scotia . .

Is CGENG the one that was at leggats last year (for sale by apex) that has some water damage from sitting outside for so long? Went to go see it for a potential purchase. All the floors were ripped out of it. If this was indeed the same plane. Leggats will rip your floors out to add a litre of oil.

I think speculation does serve one important purpose for us who fly in that regime. There may be an urgency in coming to s...
