Re: First kid

I think I worded my first sentence incorrectly. Shouldn’t get paid less then what he already does.

Re: First kid

I am absolutely not suggesting that he not get paid less. When I had my first I was at jazz and making the same as him. We made it work. It sucks but you will find a way to keep food on the table and the lights on. When we had our second I went on the RTB. Pick up some WDO’s here and there to supple...

Re: First kid

Something to remember. You can always make more money, but you’ll never get the time back. Take a look at the contract. You can go on a RTB for up to two years from the birth. Seriously consider that. I was an FO when we had our first. You WILL find a way to make it work. Spend the time with the fam...

Re: DH4 Better do a final door check yourself

I had an incident such as this a while back, although for us it was the service door. What was determined was that the caterers are trained to close the service door from the outside. Once the caterers have come and gone, if the door is opened and closed from the inside of the cabin, the handle and ...

Re: PUSH PUSH, IN THE BUSH

I know in my experience I have felt pressure from both the company and MYSELF to go when I should have stayed put. I was in pretty similar weather conditions that would have been prelevant yesterday when we lost this pilot. I made it down to a safe landing although I did not make it to my destinatio...

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

Sometimes with 2 crew when bringing freight up to a destination then installing seats to carry pax after freight is dropped off. Single pilot for st...

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

This is sad horrible news. I also knew Nick.

I know this operator has an ops spec to be VFR in uncontrolled airspace at 300ft and 1 mile vis, this needs to be done away with. It is not conducive to safety and needs to be done away with. A caravan has no business flying around in those conditions.

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

I once had a scare in icing in the same aircraft. Learned a lot that day. Made it back but thought I was gonna have to put it down in a logging cut. Thankfully that didn't happen. Hope the pilot of this flight learns from that and keeps it with him/her for the rest of their life. You learn defiantly...

Not sure I agree about the important call out that supercedes other medevacs. In the little experience I had, patients were not transported until stabilized and packaged. Our job was not to save lives, our job was to fly crew and patients safely. `Medevac`does save landing fees and does help expedi...

Re: ORNGE. Question

It's tough to say what the issue was. Do you think turbulence could have been the issue as to why they were going so slow? I know the PC12 is horrible in turbulence and I usually slow to 200KIAS or less when I get into it or if it's real bad than 150KIAS or less. With Ornge flights I don't know thei...
