He's an effing drama teacher and he can't even act like a professional. I'm curious, what was your first job out of school?

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

The difference is, regardless of the mistakes or ill-advised decisions that the Pearsons, Mulroneys, Clarks, Chrétiens and Harpers (...even the original Trudeau) made in the past, they at least had the best intentions of the country at heart. They were "Statesmen". Justin Trudeau is not. T...

Re: TSB Investigation - Canadian Approach Minimums

So you will eventually see a few SA CATII approaches pop up across the country. It will get the job done. Until some airplane ends up off the edge because they lost the centerline (no lighting). It's 2021. WTF do we do everything so mickey mouse in Canada? It's embarrassing. Back to reading about o...

Re: CYNJ CADORS

It appears there are lots of pilots who don't know the rules? Almost all seem like valid write-ups to me. So what's more likely? That Langley has a massively above-average fleet of idiots and somehow every other airport in the lower mainland has managed to avoid them? Or that there's something else...

Re: CYNJ CADORS

The other thing to keep in mind is that Nav Canada is in the process of reducing service where they can (and really they've always been about saving money) so it stands to reason that Controllers and FSS Specialists would be wanting to "justify" their jobs in any and every possible way, in...

Re: Motion in flight simulator

I will add that this is my 31st year training experienced training pilots for initial Approved Check Pilot delegation. I actually created the ACP course training standard for TCCA in 1989. I think it qualifies as descent experience. Last point that was intended in the paragraph you didn't like: I'm...

Re: Preventing Double Flameouts

Air Nova had a couple with the Dash 8 years ago. One out of YQY and I thought there was another out of YYT or YDF but I can't find it right now. There's been a mod done to the intakes to help prevent this as well as new SOPs for the Dash 8 in terms of checking intakes. To my knowledge there's been n...

I have no idea worldwide, I can only speak for my operation. Your generalization about little effort being put in to ensure instructor quality seems to be quite blunt and rather broad. I agree on the first 10 words of the following quote, but the rest of those 3 lines certainly don't apply where I w...

Re: B1-B Lancer

Back in the good old days, I remember the B1-B at the Shearwater Air Show. The Americans used to bring a ton of hardware there, and they flew several machines too. I will never forget the B1-B entering stage left from behind the hill (spectators sat on a great hill for viewing), wings swept back at ...

Re: Motion in flight simulator

Weak research paper with questionable credibility. I'm sure the (first) author runs an excellent ACP course, but I'm unable to find any information on him except that he has written a few papers on airline-related topics. How much training/checking time in heavy airplanes and Level D hardware does h...

Re: Q400 crash landing in Kathmandu

A perfect example of where it is easier to ask, "what did that crew do right?" vs. "what did they do wrong?"

They did nothing right. The entire thing is sickening to read and watch.

Re: PAL nose gear collapse

System knowledge would have told them that all the pulling in the world on that nosegear alternate release wasn't going to amount to anything (after the FSS visually confirmed partial extension). Pulling the handle simply releases the uplocks and gravity and airstream take care of the rest. As for a...

A USAF F-35 fighter pilot does this one, and it's not always about aviation, but rather about professionals at their craft.

One of the recent ones was an interview Terry Virts (F-16 -> Shuttle -> ISS). A real professional at his craft.

Re: TC Medical Processing Times

My personal experience is approximately a 9 to 10 month processing time (Medical passed with CAME but TC RAMO flagged something and informed me 9.5 months later). Two things are causing delays. Their records staff has been reduced by approximately 90%. In addition, TC was in the midst of changing fr...

Re: Remember Tenerife

From the report:

"As the flight crew of the CRJ 200 lined up in position on Runway 33R and the FO finished the line-up checklist, the captain asked the FO if they had received a take-off clearance. The FO stated that they had."

That should have been the end of it right there.
