Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

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...

Re: Vazar Otter external load LSTC

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? We use to haul 3 nesting Canoes on each side. I do have an LSTC that references dimensions rather then specific numbers of canoes or boat...

The shame is that idiot, armchair pilots use the reporting of idiot, media sources to formulate their idiotic conclusions.

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.

I don't trust anybody who has a problem with the background check. Its scary enough these kids are put in airplanes with pilots of unknown skill, let alone possible Pedo pilots.

So using that logic. Would you ever shut down an engine on a twin that showed no oil pressure, or should someone just run it in hopes that it won't seize up?

Hilarious to see pilots uppity about somebody seeking answers about an accident. This entire board is filled with brainiac pilots spouting their personal opinions and theories along with relentless whinging about the speed of TSB investigations.

Keep in mind we are coming into the hot season. 45 to 50 degrees and fat bastards are a bad mix. As for a picture. Well you are hiring people sight unseen from a country where Blue hair dye, transgender and face piercings are common place.
