Re: Air Bravo/Thunder Airlines

Just saw this post, had to raise a glass to Bob M.

Re: Embry Riddle or other US university for aviation degree

I'm fortunate enough to already have the career I want at a major airline here in Canada, but I never completed university and I want to have that higher level of education (for personnal satisfaction, potential careers moves, etc.). I was looking into some of the online bachelors degrees that ERAU...

Re: I want to become canadian bush pilot , am an indian !

Talking seniority numbers and quickest ways to airline seats to someone just starting out seems like such a disservice, almost sad. Some are going to put the blinders on and say airline or bust, but I'm not going to be the one to hand them the blinders. NS, You're right, once you're in the seat, the...

No excuse...

Re: I was genuinely embarrassed for them

Couldn't believe this. There I was on a gorgeous day up in the flight levels, not a cloud in sight, when a flight checks in with ATC not far from my position and requests a block of altitudes. Now, bear in mind that this airline checking in exclusively flies a type that's well known for its docile ...

I was doing 12+ legs per day, did a daily log, and had no issues. What would they recommend a jump pilot do? That's just silly.

The Niagara Region has been pitching YSN-YTZ service lately too. 8 minute commute to downtown doesn't sound too bad if you could afford it!

Re: Going easy on the plane

Our birds pay my mortgage and our depatment only has two, with parts slowly becoming scarce. It's my livlihood and the tool of my trade, so damn right a little mechanical sympathy is in order. However, I treat rental cars like I own them too. Just an upbringing thing.
