Re: Delta to run with 60% max capacity planes

So are they going to remove 40% of the seats, or just keep the same pitch, and leave some (middle?) seats empty?

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

You'd have to wonder if they'd be better off staying onboard and trying to pull out of the dive more before impact. I doubt it - they were just out of altitude. The best outcome would have been to leave at the apex of the climb - instead of turning......but there could be many reasons why they did ...

Re: float plane mooring ropes

I've always worked with what I've been given; that being said, I've found that if the ropes extend much past the end of the float/rudder, they beat themselves to sh!t, and end up looking like dreadlocks on a bad hair day.. If i want a longer rope on the rear, I'll try and toss it forward of the fron...

Re: Covid19 Medevacs?

At my place, a confirmed COVID calls for gloves, respirator mask, gown, and faceshield for loading and offloading, and an N95 paper mask for in flight. The patient will be loaded into the aft spot on the sled, furthest away from the door. Once we get back, the a/c is left on the ramp (wx permitting)...

Ah....the unicorn question! You can have money, schedule or location in aviation, but only two of the three at the same time!

Core, log off AvCan, turn off your computer and take a deep breath. Then, go outside and take a suitably socially-distanced walk around your block. When you've done that, quit posting for a while and relax - you'll live longer.

Take the good paying job...NOW! No-one knows how this is eventually going to play out, so any job offer that you had in aviation prior to now is tenuous at best.
