Re: Who is flying the vaccine

The procurement minister? You mean the one with the Arts and Law degrees? I'm glad she has the position and not someone with a background in project management, logistics, business, foreign markets or international relations. It's a great team that's been put together. End results don't mean a thing...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

"Open airlines up to more foreign competition." Great, thats just what we need. More cost cutting, which will start with labour. Honestly, Canadian governmental choices are the Sandlot. I think this is a flawed argument. The United States is the largest aviation market in the world. There...

Re: Multi IFR at Rockliffe Flying Club

What are your alternatives? Do you live in Ottawa or will move anywhere for the rating? Regardless, RFC is a fantastic place. A club feel with a career college accreditation. The DA42 might be a few bucks more than a clapped out Aztec but you're learning the current avionics and there's little down ...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Now that Sunwing has got their government bailout I imagine everyone else will be getting one too. Edit: It's just a high interest loan. Not much help as most airlines could get cheaper loans elsewhere. Yep, it's actually the opposite of encouraging. It's a last resort loan which balloons to 14% af...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

There's always the fact that CCAA would pretty much eliminate the requirement to give refunds to customers, could be another theoretical angle by airlines, but unlikely. For AC and TRZ that would mean intentionally devaluing the company and stock, and shirking their corporate accountability which is...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Personally I believe the delay in aid is to put AC and possibly TRZ and SWG in a position where the need to give up ownership stake to the gov't. Aid will be announced this week, but there is absolutely ZERO reason for this to have taken so long if it wasn't intentional. That's the biggest obvious, ...

Pelmet, nobody here is proving you right except yourself.

Honestly I barely know what you're mumbling about at this point.

Can we go back to applauding people who are trying to suppprt our industry?

Re: Very appropriate letter to the editor

But perhaps understand the confusion one can have when a party says indirectly that they want to end the careers of so many people in a field, that so many of those people vote for it and then get upset about it. There's something fundamentally wrong in your head Pelmet. Get help. You might want to...

Pelmet, are you having utterly different conversations in your head? This thread started with an excellent letter from a pilot denouncing Trudeau and doing his part to bring attention to our cause. Nobody here is defending the Liberals, but you jumped in out of nowhere and went straight on some hype...

Re: Very appropriate letter to the editor

Pelmet, you've entirely missing the point. I don't care in the slightest who you voted for. Bradley thought we were in good hands, and he changed his mind. I have an excellent Liberal MP and he knows I've changed my mind. If you voted Liberal, would you walk into the pilot's lounge at AC in 2012 and...

So, he regrets his vote as many of us have. He is being active on social media, has written an excellent letter that is gaining traction on mainstream media, and is trying to fight for awareness for our industry's plight. As a fellow TS pilot, I've also been doing my best to do the same. Aren't we a...

Re: Instructor taking control

I've always been of the mind that control should only be taken if absolutely necessary. What's necessary? Safety of flight is obvious and judging that just comes from experience. The other time is if you can the the student isn't getting the exercise right well after the demo. Sometimes you can talk...
