Re: @#$! 2020

The sad part is more then 2/3 of folks think this is great. In a poll I saw 80% said they would be happy with Air Canada going bankrupt.

I hereby declare the Snowbirds. "Non Essentials" and sentence them to House Arrest, where they can collect Trudeau's meager $2000 a month welfare.

Re: That didn't take long...

Not sure where the number 7 hours was pulled out of? 3 Hours is the standard on a single engine piston airplane. 7 hours is a lot of training. The costs of that are also significantly more then fuel costs. That is time off the next 100hr, that now won't be revenue time. Time on the engine and prop t...

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

It will never return. Business travel alone will never return. There are European countries working on Laws that will ensure people work from home after this is over. If it returns it wont be in any of our lifetimes. The real question is how long can the Government continue to pay Airline Staff the ...

Re: float plane mooring ropes

Well Valleyboy. Try jumping out of an Otter with an offshore wind with your rope in hand and see how it works out. Guess what. There is a reason why every float plane has ropes dangling from it. The only ones I have ever seen without them are American Private pilots and Transport Canada when they ha...

Re: Hey TC maybe this is a good time to extend pilot's medical validity

So how can one look at this as a seasonal float pilot who is over 40? Who generally does a medical in April in order for it to be valid for the six month season?

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

I have seen 4 industry downturns. This one will be massive. It will take out everything from Float Operations to Wide Body Jet jobs and it will take a decade to recover, if it ever does return to the level we were at. Peoples investments are gone, interest rates are zero, so there is nowhere for gov...

Re: 30 Day suspension-- all Travel Europe to US.

Sad time. For the past decade pilots were talking like they were the ones in control. This will be very humbling for many. Those of us who have been around awhile have seen it before. It never goes well.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

The backs of the floats being under water means almost nothing. Also there are a number of float sizes and fuel tank locations. It's easy to sink the backs of a straight 7170 Otter without a Walter header tank and be perfectly legal.

Re: Ontario Road Trip

If you are talking about float companies. Everybody works the weekend. Its the busiest part of the week. Chief Pilots and owners will all be around. The season is winding down however. The chance of getting work this season is pretty much nil. You could however get a foot in the door for next season?

Get rid of your celphone and get a landline. People lived that way for a very long time. I know for a millennial its daunting just to imagine doing so, but "Flight Safety" depends on it!
