Re: Pay Ranges given on Take Charge site

The ACC is the same as all the others with OFP $14697. Not correct. Moncton gets $17500ish, they are on the low end of ACCs, I believe one other gets the same. The remainder get more up to Toronto which gets the highest by a wide margin. Edited to add: it isn't called OFP anymore, it's ATC Premium.

Re: De Havilland contemplates stretched, shrunken Dash 8-400

I hear Q400 guys all the time revising their TAS with ATC, so I'm wondering if how much they are throttling back, and why? I'm thinking it's overpowered to compete with the jets and just not economical to use the power so company mandates economy power settings....anyone with answers?? I asked some...

Re: APPLICATION FAQ ANSWERS

A conservative figure is 1 in 10 people invited to FEAST will get a training seat, and maybe 2-4 of these people will actually qualify which is probably easily <1% of initial online applicants. I'm not sure how many people actually go through the online process but from those who do, 100 or so are ...

Wrong, Nav doesn’t care about a military license, you’ll have to apply and go through the same process all over again.

You may make it to an eligible for offer stage and get to sit there for 18 months awaiting an offer, but anyo...

Re: ILS question

First of all, you will not be cleared a “localizer” approach if there is an ILS on the chart. You are cleared for the approach based on the name of the chart. “Cleared the ILS Runway XX, Glideslope unserviceable” is the appropriate approach clearance given by ATC if the glideslope is out and you ha...

Does anyone know if the AIM or regulation says that you must get a clearance from ATC to exit from the landing runway onto another runway?
In the AIM - 4.4.4 - Taxiing, page 238: No aircraft shall exit a runway onto another runway unless instructed or authorized to do so by ATC.
