Re: What are the unlucky doing?

Laid off Airbus Capt. I was a trucker back in the 90s, so I went back to long haul. The weather in the US the past few weeks has been less than fun, and I’m not enjoying driving for 22-25 days a month, but I’m lucky I have a job. Tons of companies begging for drivers out there, so if you’re on EI g...

Re: More than half of world's airline pilots no longer flying - survey

All of the above posts are have good points and are all valid. Bottom line, going forward, how many of these young people figuring out what they are going to do with their lives, will want to chance a life where chances of success are very low? Humans don't do that. Actually, no living being does th...

Re: CANADA TO LIFT BAN ON BOEING 737 MAX ON JAN. 20

Another media induced panic that has been resolved. Cost boeing billions, and the lawyers got rich. Except for a minor technical software correction, there was no real problem with the airplane in the first place. What a world, one guy screws up a procedure, big company loses billions, and the botto...

Re: Is being a Commercial Pilot in Canada worth it?

Depends on your worldview, but yes, at the end of the day, it is not a bad gig. Like the stock market, you can make it big time, or you can lose your shirt, and that will depend on timing, on luck, whether someone likes your face or not, and silly office politics. Those silly politics can have a dis...

Re: Ontario Stay Home Order coming in.

It's not working. Doing the same thing over and over again that does not work is a sign of madness. These peo...

Re: New Transport minister

Well, I see that the garneau thingy seems to have a rather interesting reputation all over. Even out of blogs like this.

And, this guy gets one of the top jobs? That has serious impact on the whole country?

I am worried.

Re: Retirement Dreams

At this rate I'll be one of the ones flying till 67, and then going back to 703 aviation to die in my work boots, but I like your optimism. That sounds depressing. I look forward to retirement, and letting the youngsters do the daily grind. If my plan works out , 6 more years, and retire at 55. Lif...

umm...... the government types are in panic mode and are thinking like panicked persons.

Re: Foreign Airlines take CEWS

Vaccinating the prison guards, then the most vulnerable like the elderly (even those in prison), and those with pre existing conditions (even those in prison), and then everyone else, and then the healthy prisoners, would make no sense, right?

Hey, it's tongue in cheek, don't take it too seriously.

Re: Garneau's fireside chat and PR campaign.

Don't confuse Garneau with any sort of stand up person. The person is a product of the canadian navy, chosen to be an astronaut for political purposes, and is now a politician. We're not talking . Yeager here, who actually needed to use brains to do a job. We are talking political product who will d...

Maybe a few things to point out in order to see context..... Nobody likes fatality rates but as that guy Benjamin Franklin said, the only sure things in life are death and taxes.
