Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

I work for the sister company and while it may be “one country, two systems” the cheques still come from the same place. I’ll share my insights. Like at every other place I’ve worked... I’ve never had a safety decision questioned. I’ve been stranded in the middle of nowhere with a broken airplane an...

I already answered your question. It did not benefit Israel. You’re starting with a premise that Israel wanted this to happen and are trying to make the pieces fit. Yeah, Israel and Iraq weren’t exactly friends but it’s all about the devil you know. Iraq was strategically and militarily impotent in ...

Re: Floatplane Incident Ottawa River Sept 28 or 29th

What’s bad about the reporting? They are reporting what the pilot said verbatim. That isn’t a wing tip. It’s got a fuel cap on it. It had a flight control attached to it. If anything it’s the pilot who’s bad, not the reporter. Bad for flying into fog. Bad for not knowing how his plane flies. Or shou...

Re: Boeing Max.

The stab doesn’t just trim the stabilizer. It also trims the elevators via the feel and centering unit and the PCUs. So nose down, you have to overcome a lot more spring pressure than when it’s neutral... and have to deflect the elevator much more relative the to neutral set by the feel and centerin...

Re: Pilot Shortage / Minimums /disconnect

I still think there are companies out there that insist on sticking to their minimums no matter what, and as a result the positions go unfilled for weeks and weeks. Who says these positions are going unfilled? Lots of it is a high rate of attrition and creating a pool of suitable candidates. It’s n...

Like I said, hyperbole.

Stop looking for validation here and either do what’s required or stop whining. The very fact that it’s a question tells me that it’s not serious.

There but for the grace of god go I.

Re: Navcanada discontinuing approaches at under-serviced airports

Would they not move the approaches over to the RCAP so approved carriers , such as Orange, could continue to operate IFR. I don’t think that’s how it works. RCAP approaches allow for lower minimums for two crew ops spec due to the extra training and redundancy of two crew aircraft (like pilot monit...

Re: Speed limits and STARs

I always do what the STAR says and ATC tells me. I dont really care about 200 knots unless I reach the end of a STAR or start getting close to an intercept. It is also possible to have a profile that puts you well above 3000AAE at ROTRU, and 3000AAE is almost right on a three degree profile there. (...
