US Airlines received 50 Billion dollar of Federal Aid. Many other countries came to the rescue of their respective airlines.

Canada’s airlines received NOTHING although they spent Millions flying hundreds of thousands of stranded Canadians home.

Why the airlines but not other industries?

Re: Coronavirus Numbers

So the world officially breeched the 1,000,000 mark with Covid-19. That means that after 5 months, 1 person in 7700 alive on Earth has it, or has already recovered from it. At this rate, even if it multiplies a few times, it'll be years yet before its makes its way through the population. Don't exp...

Supply-demand. Nobody forced the airlines to continue operating. They decided on their own.

You don't have to be a dick about it. I was just asking. I'll take that as you don't believe there was an alternative. Do you think it's been effective? We don’t know if it has been effective yet.

Re: Corona Virus

That’s why I said somewhat accurate (for during the crisis). Yes, some unresolved cases will recover and some will die. It is a fair assumption that it’ll be at the same rate( or close) as the curent fatality rate (death/resolved cases)

Because it seems that people have literally no common sense... the virus doesn't appear to be that bad.

Re: 2004 Pinnacle Airlines Flight 3701

There is generally a very specific climb profile to follow in order to make it to the service ceiling of the aircraft. Any deviations will result in either not reaching it or reaching it in a state where the aircraft cannot maintain its speed at max rated power (ie: with momentum, trading airspeed f...

Re: Is it possible to get hired with Restricted Medical "with or as co-pilot" category 1?

Well it may, because they need to make sure you're always with someone without restrictions. I'm pretty sure AC was sued a number of years back for enforcing rules above and beyond the Cat1 requirements and lost. If the regulator says you're good, they can't really say otherwise. With or as co-pilo...

Re: Sim time logbook

It is still Sim time. Log it as sim but you can count up to 5 of those sim hours for the purpose of getting that license. Logging time and using time for license/endorsement issuance are two distinct things.

It had to clear eventually. Or if it didn't, maybe common sense would have kicked in and he would have finally asked for an approach with an ILS. On what basis, after a flight with multiple failed approaches and a passive attitude, do you attest "common sense would have kicked in". I'm trying to un...

I've never had too much fuel. Ever. Cheers Illya That’s a silly statement. If you always want full tanks, stay in the ground.
