Is there any difference between a " black hole departure " and a departure in IMC with a 200 foot ceiling?
Yes. One sounds like it should be easier than the other, it’s a VFR night after all. As you know, it isn’t easier.

If anyone thinks a dollar a share is going to stop Calin if he really wants AT and the planes/pilots/routes, I have a bridge to sell you. I don’t think he wants it that bad, he just doesn’t want certain others to have it. If it’s deemed that an airline owned by a real estate firm poses no credible ...

Both operations are single pilot VFR. Whichever way you go it’s important to demonstrate that you’re a safe and reliable employee. The rest is details.

4100 pilots at AC, 600 at TS
In theory BOTL would probably piss off the fewest people at only 600.

I’m not actually advocating that, I have friends at TS.

Re: Any chance we just lost our AC flow?

If both operations are merged, there is quite a bit of overlapping that can be reduced to maximize efficiency. The A310s will likely be sold off. The 737s and A330-200s may be as well. Overall, Air Transat will likely not be as large as it is now. All other things being equal, if Transat shrinks wh...

Re: Getting paid by client to provide sightseeing in my plane?

On the flip side, you could argue the hours to complete a commercial are "incidental" as whether you are splitting the cost or not, you NEED to fly those hours. Technically, you can argue anything. Being loud =/= being right, and it has come up before. Perhaps a good read of the TATC records for so...

That then would add recognition time to the mix and eaten into the 84 seconds they had. Has the TSB said where they got the 84 seconds figure from? If it was internally recorded by the instrument then you can consider however long it took to notice but if it came from the CVR then that would be the...

Yes, Jazz has been hiring this year. You could be below the experience they’re picking for interview or could have technical problems with your application. To remedy the latter, try updating or resubmitting your resume with them. In the meantime, try and be the very best you can at your current job.

Nowadays it must be really hard when your flight training has to be secondary to what you're doing to fund your flight training.

No. There are a few exceptions, but not in the air taxi and sightseeing realm. If the airplane is something special there’s an exemption to holding a OC to provide ‘experience flights.’ That would be for warbird operators and the like, and there are still hoops to jump through. I forget the exact w...

Re: Bonds

Most of them are legal yes. With a bond, you usually don't pay for on the job training. You just owe the employer money if you leave within a specified time period, typically 1-3 years. This. From a legal point of view it has nothing to do with the training. Having said that, people have argued the...
