Re: Watch the loose clothing

Lol, i can't stop laughing, made my day. You're talking about watching your long sleeve shirt while the pilots up north are all wearing full cold weather gear.

Always watch for any loose articles.

Re: Is transport Canada closed

2 months ago, i sent in an application and a cheque for the fee.

1 month ago I received a government envelope containing a carbon copy, handwritten receipt for the cheque and absolutely nothing else.

Was the application accepted? rejected? Who knows, probably won't know until i renew again.

Re: Any instructor paid while they stay home?

Canada is supposed to be awash in 100B to provide relief for those that cannot work due to government imposed directives. Any of that 100B trickle down to flight instructors that typically get paid by Hobbs? Any flight school paying their staff while they stay home? Might have to move back into my ...

Re: E license after M training!!

Let's say someone finishes "M" basic training at a school that gives experience credit towards the 48 months required experience. To get the M license, they have to complete the remaining required experience to get M1 or M2. How to get E license as well? Is it required to go back to school to get a...

Re: Engineering layoffs

Of course there will be layoffs, just not as quickly and not as many.

Good engineers are hard to find, they won't be dumped. Dead weight first, then real decisions need to be made.

There has been a real shortage before this, it might catch up now.

Re: Two RTO's on the same runway - at the same time

Brake lights and turn signals should be required on all aircraft. Throw in a horn too for good measure.

Seems like everything ended up as it should, both aircraft stopped in time.

Re: Labour Law

The Laws are still there to be researched, go with the CLC. Then you contract may have something about it too. It all depends on the size of the company and how many employees are getting laid off. HOWEVER, by declaring a "state of emergency", funds are available for layoffs and retention but people...

No.

Private aviation might actually get a boost from this. There was already a surge in private jet charters.

Re: Apprentice without school? Can it happen?

It CAN happen but it would be recommended to supplement yourself with some part time training like stevenson college.

Going to an accredited school gives you experience credit towards the apprenticeship. You have to do more time without the schooling, the full 4 years.
