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?

It will be the easiest exam you ever write in aviation. For the interview know you Ops Manual. If you have to start flipping threw pages you will be in trouble.

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.

Newbies got what they wanted. A cool hat and a seat, without roughing up their soft hands or ever learning what real work is, I pay for my kids to be babysat. Just think of this as parents paying Jazz to babysit millennials.

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?

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

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! These phones are far more dangerous in the hands of pilots who using them to listen to music and text while flyin...

If your not good enough to land on glassy water because you cant tell how high our are, then you are certainly not good enough to zoom back and forth over it trying to make ripples.

Re: What do you do after landing long in a floatplane

Following an 80 year old manual word for word that was written when the airplane had less then 100 hours of test pilot time on it, is idiotic. Countless hours of real life operational conditions, over decades count for way more then the manual. That being said I am not sure pulling back or pushing f...

Nesting Canoes is one possibility. I assume that since you are looking for something as specific as a 3 canoe STC, that its something you need to do fairly often?

Re: Ethiopian Airlines: 'No survivors' on crashed Boeing 737 max

I'm buying Boeing stock this morning. "Buy the Fear" They have orders for 5000 of these things. They are not going anywhere. Shares dropped 12% after the Lion Air crash and bounced back. This is an easy 12 to 15% moneymaker.
