Re: Air Canada Pay

If you don’t like the pay scale, don’t apply. Simple as that. If you can do better somewhere else then go do that and good for you. If you tried AC and were rejected, try again or move on and try something else. I don’t understand the sense of entitlement among pilots. No one owes you @#$! all in li...

Re: Do you have to snag intermittent problems?

So I work for a large Canadian airline flying a 705 jet. Thanks to way too many sensors it likes to give spurious flight control disagree faults (white status messages on EICAS) particularly after the start. This occurs because the sensors erroneously/momentarily defect a fault and the message won'...

Re: Operating crew / Catsa

So why is it in YYC, you are required to put your RAIC in the bin when going through NPS? We received a memo about complying with this. It’s about care and control and once seized, you will now have to try and get it back, point is they can make your life difficult. Here’s how “RAIC in the bin” cam...

And as far as the “restricted area” is concerned. The NPS facility is not a restricted area, the NPS allows you to enter the restricted area. This is why they can have you remove your RAIC.

Re: Operating crew / Catsa

You should re read that paragraph, it says expedited via nexus lane, family lane or taken to the front of the queue and from experience, clarifying it with a manager on duty, the queue is basically where the line starts not the front of the line. That being said, some CATSA workers are better than ...
