Which makes no sense that tall people aren’t afforded the same luxury for exit row etc
Can relate. The distance from the back of my ass to the front of my knee when seated is longer than the seat pitch in a decent number of airliners. Good times.

Salt water on the coast is a no-go, 415s aren't like a Beaver you can rebuild every couple years to deal with corrosion.
I’ve seen an ex-European 215 that lived a life of salt water. There are actual holes in the hull from corrosion, it’s amazing.

Security Pat-down

The other day I was travelling and managed to get ‘randomly selected’ for further search. Fine, whatever, that’s what we live with now. One of the options I was given by the female CATSA agent was a pat-down from a male agent. While I don’t care who pats me down, I guess it’s a policy of theirs to m...

So who got woken up by the Nuclear alert? Seems like it was just sent in error.
I think if I was about to be in big trouble for a near nuclear disaster down in sector 7G that I too would try to play the warning off as an error.

I see it has an event button? What might that be used for?
Since it looks like it’s out of the NRC I’d guess that button puts a tag of some sort on data that’s being recorded.

Re: I nearly hit a Roomba while flying?!?

I bet you saw Mylar party balloons. They tend to flop on their sides when set free and in my experience enough helium to make them nicely buoyant at ground level is just enough to get them to level off somewhere around 1,000 - 2,000 feet AGL.

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?

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...
