Re: Cargo TA

If you were a nice guy I might be sympathetic to your jeuevenile tantrums. When you find time away from your video games take a look at the situation in the EU. They have every right to reject the the proposal as it stands now. Europe is crumbling and no one wants to venture there. Canadian industr...

You answered your own question there...
I know, it was rhetorical. ;).
Hopefully we can work together on this one!

Re: Cargo TA

Well, if it's any consolation, TS has an excellent integral relation between ALPA, members, and management. Also, our group consist of members who are fiercely proud of their positions and conditions. Once things gradually get integrated, that extra 650 could be enough to swing a vote towards ALPA m...

Re: Cargo TA

Brutal. I was hoping anything negotiated in 2020 would at least have something like a 2 year maturation with a guaranteed, set increase. Wishful, sensible thinking.

Re: Cargo TA

I'm not familiar with the details of this TA, but it seems like it's a concession in order to diversify flying? My question is, how long is the agreement good for? In a couple years tops the industry will be back to normal growth, but will pilots still be laboring under the terms of this TA, made in...

Re: Calin is retiring February 2021

Fly with **some** 62-64 year olds and you might change your mind. I've had some terrifying experiences with what are supposed to be some the most experienced pilots we have. I find myself watching the very Sr Captains a lot closer than the ones in their 30s and 40s. The cognitive decline in many ol...

Re: The clubhouse.....

There should be a sticky thread where anyone can voluntarily post their name to introduce themselves, if they have the marbles. Then the members that would never want their true identity known should ask themselves why their statements are so embarrassing they need to hide. :) Could even go as far a...

Re: The clubhouse.....

I think the small, social Flying Club is the absolute best way for anyone to start flying! You meet good people, get the passion and love of aviation cemented inside you by like-minded pilots, hear amazing stories and are probably more likely to start having some of your own. I started hanging aroun...

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

I agree, this is a good example of the correct book answer compared with what could be done a little differently in real life, depending. The correct course of action for comm failure when being vectored below MSA is to climb to MSA and continue the approach. So, 4. Since this is the textbook action...

I don't consider myself as an entitled piece of Ok, but you should question why everyone else does? The worst episode to ever hit aviation. Guys at AC, Regionals, WJ, SW, TS, are driving Fedex trucks and stocking shelves at Costo. One or two of these companies might fold altogether leaving thousand...

Yup, I think that's a pretty good idea man. But anyhow, not to derail the thread.

Really easy. Plenty of GA traffic in there. All the FBO's are on the north end. Taxiing is nothing like YYZ. You'll get terminal, approach, then tower. As mentioned, just tell them you have no idea where you are or what you're doing and you'll be fine! :) But really, they'll guide you right along. F...
