Re: Swoop alum

Tbaylx, I'm not surprised reading this article on the Toronto Sun. You've crippled aviation in a professional manner and now you wanna continue to do so by allowing such a news article to be published? The world gives no F's about you living in a van, but they sure do seeing you in a pilot uniform o...

Re: VIDEO: Cessna 310 Crash after LEFT Engine Failure (29 Oct 2020)

I did my Multi-IFR training on the C310. Years ago we used to actually shut the engine down as a demonstration for multi training.. During mine we could not get it to start again and had to declare a mayday and come in on one and land. Doing about 20 hours in it, I found it not to be a very forgivin...

Re: Encore Recalls

Its quite clear in the PTA about bump rights. Jet driver is correct and you are not. Section 8.01 is pretty clear and its under "WestJet or Swoop layoff and recall" I understand Encore pilots are looking out for their own team, but if we keep allowing the company to do whatever it wants wi...

Re: Encore Recalls

Recalling out of seniority. A step in the wrong direction yet again. WJ treasured the one list now they aren't following it? It's only good for them when they want it to be. Glad folk are getting back flying but common, lets not allow any leap frogging.

Re: Will Westjet survive?

No Socks is likely one of the Tech Ops who got punted out of seniority because they weren't unionized. Albeit I feel for those guys/gals, but no need to come on here and slander the pilot group over unionization (which i'm gonna bet you wish you were now) I'm looking forward to call you again to cle...

Re: Airlines ask MP’s to have COVID rules relaxed ..

Ahramin, I beg to differ about planes being "empty" .. I've been flying throughout the whole downturn and loads have really picked up in the last month.. went from being around 5-20 folks to now around 80-100 in just a month.. on average.. maybe if they relax the rules we can fill these pl...

Re: Westjet ad.

Oh, and I also heard if you bypass your upgrade when you're eligible you can be penalized and held frozen as an FO? Anyone else shed some light on this? A fellow Encore pilot told me this.

It's only gonna get worse with flow being reduced and all the folk leaving for AC. Hell I get nervous DH'n on Encore when t...

Re: 737 max

Judging by the preliminary reports, these crews likely were potentially thinking they had an airspeed issue and focused maybe on that QRC first (stick shakers, overspeed etc etc) one controls while the other is grabbing the QRC... Trim wheel noise in the background along with all the other sounds th...

Re: Westwind

Airplanes have been flying in and out of ZFD for years without cleaning off some impact ice you accumulated on the way in. A Saab took off right before them with no issue. This airplane didn't just crash because of ice accumulation, there were other factors. Mishandling of the aircraft on rotation? ...

Re: Westwind

Is there an INC REF switch on the ATR? Was it left on for takeoff? Stick shaker after takeoff? Never flew the ATR but the Q400.. I seen in the simulator multiple times it left on from the previous exercise and the stick shaker going off on a normal takeoff. Thoughts?
