Re: Commuting, Acclimatization and new Flight Duty Regs

I would argue its simply a matter of time. During vacation most people come home feeling fine and energized, happy to go to work and you don't vacation every month. When people start to commute the first month they may feel fine, however after a period of time the lingering effect of the commute doe...

Re: Commuting, Acclimatization and new Flight Duty Regs

I just posted in another topic on this. When the initial proposal came out, it actually discussed commuting which was removed fairly quick. Now with the new and final regs I have said exactly what you just posted. If everything is fine, you won't hear boo from the company or TC, however the second s...

Re: Same Day Commuting and new Flight Duty Regs

So in the initial proposal back in 2014 TC actually did have a carve out for commuting which was removed fairly quick. Now with the way the Reg is printed the only carve out that I can see is with the caveat of acclimatization, and it would only come up if something were to happen. I.e. a YVR commut...

Re: WAWCON at PAL Aerospace

As it is a King Air 200, I get the low rate with the years one and two. But 15 years to make 85K when all other operators are paying that by years 4-5, WOW.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Will not be DOH, Will not be bottom of the list.

It will be a form of ratio, which will still need to be determined. If we can all agree on that, this will be much less painful

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

The deal isn't done yet. It's only an amended price per share which will need to be approved by the shareholders. You are correct. However if you look at the current economic climate and what the options are; 1) Potential risk of losing everything, or 2) Take a small lose and salvage a little bit.

Unless they have bought another one, the Honda Jet is managed. haha, unless the fractional is now with that owner.

Re: When is a 604 AOC Required?

I know one person that has the TBM under the private operators document. It is purely to utilize the Ops Spec for RVSM.

It's almost as if WJ is trying to repeat history. So many have intended to run out of YHM only to slide over to YYZ.

Correct. As I have stated in other threads, I do not for a second believe that any airline would be denied when they are blowing millions per day with zero end in site.
