Re: Kobe Bryant chopper crash

This helicopter crash is no more important than any other helicopter crash.

Oh right... today's infatuation with celebs and the media's infatuation with ratings.

Re: Who here has been ramped by TC?

Medevac Merlin 2A in Thompson in the early 2000s. Checked for all documents and asked to accompany me on a walk around. No big whoop.

Re: Fokker 100 Crash in Almaty, Kazakhstan Dec 26,2019

After a cold clear night and flaps, spoilers, and ailerons out to the winglets covered in thick opaque hoar frost, of course the stab would be as well, and no mention of de-icing from the Captain's PA I let the FA know to notify the pilots during push back about the state of the wings.

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

So Trudeau takes his kids and his entourage to up Iqaluit on the Nolinor 737-200 to spend a day telling the people of the north how he is the best choice to protect the environment. Let's see... Ottawa return on the -200 burns about 19,000 litres of jet fuel. What a climate hero!!!

Re: Swoop Pilot Open House & Info Session

Surely Sunwing is great for many pilots that have chosen to work there. No two people like the same thing. I only use stats, as non-emotional as it gets. Is it not true that many Sunwing pilots have left for Swoop? What's their reasoning? F/Os going for minimum left seat time then get the hell out,...

Re: Canadian/First Air Merger

it's a hard pill to swallow to go from a senior captain to about halfway down the seniority list. With the merge everyone keeps their seats but any roll backs and you might go from 73 captain to right seat on a dash or ATR. 7F has a lot of senior pilots who were working there prior to 5T ever exist...

Re: Canadian/First Air Merger

All mid to junior F/Os leaving for Swoop left seats and a few to Air Canada. A few left for Encore left seats previously. Flight ops integration won’t be for a few years so nothing really changing for us other than uniform and livery when that eventually happens.
