Re: Are private jets allowed at Toronto Billy B. CYTZ ?

Wasn't Porter planning to buy CSeries or something if they got approval (which was denied) for jets at YTZ?

Didn't both Fedex and UPS order A380-F's early on, and then cancel them as the inevitable delays came along?

Re: Difference between schools and its prices

My son is starting his private. Looked into a few different schools around the area. One never answered the phone the several times I called to book him an intro flight. Mail box full so no option to leave a message. I work nearby, so stopped in a couple times, no one ever there. Place looked like h...

This is Canada. We can't have nice things. Hell, Chretien wouldn't even fly in that plane out of appearances. And then they put a nice paint job on it and people whined again.

Re: Plane registered to Roy Halladay crashes in Gulf off Florida

Looks like he was going kinda fast for touch and goes. This is what a lot of money and no experience ends up like sometimes. The news mentioned today that his father was a career pilot. Sad outcome anyway. I edited the post above with the link to the promo video Icon had put out last month after he...
