Re: New North Star Basler Accident

Sachigo has LPV to both ends of the runway. Why the hell would they be circling? Easy, you hit minima and the ground is in sight but the airport is not. By the time you realize you were looking in the wrong place and do get the runway visual you’re too high to just slam it in so you figure you can ...

I would guess that all new hires will be YYZ based for the foreseeable future. Not because people aren’t needed elsewhere but because that way any relocation is simply seniority based.

"Good" operators use method A. If you're lucky, you work for one of them. Are there any of them in the 703 world?
Are there any 705s that even go to all that trouble?

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

If you don't wanna move up north go get your instructor rating and do that until you get 1500Hrs and Jazz will take ya! Or, and this is crazy but hear me out, do move north for a year or two since that time is nothing when you’re in your early twenties. Come out of it as the interesting person at p...

Re: Air Canada Pay

An observation from this old codger. Why do chaps make comments on Air Canada’s salary structure when they (a) do not work at that airline (b) explicitly imply they have no desire to do so. Insecurity, I assume. Using pay and schedule as an example, a corporate pilot should STFU about how good they...

Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

I had managed to block it from my memory until this thread, but, flat turns . The idea was that in a banked turn you were wasting lift to the inside of the turn so for best performance you want to keep the wings level, especially at low speeds. I’m told it took a fair bit of opposite aileron to keep...

Zombie thread alert!

Re: PIC DUAL Same time in the States

TC is unlikely to count it but as long as your total is legit per the CARs you ought to be good. In a couple years that 1.3 will be less than the accumulated math errors in your book so there won’t be a meaningful lasting impact.

Best bet for OTS applicant now is apply at Transat and failing that Jazz.
Calling Transat ‘best’ right now is a bit of a gamble, no? I’d have thought the surest thing would remain Jazz, as it has been for at least the last decade from what I’ve seen.
