Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I wonder if the competition bureau report that was due today will be delayed. Sunwing being bankrupt or close to it must be a big consideration if they will allow AC to buy TS and essentially have a monopoly on that kind of vacation travel.

You better get into the unemployment line, because that's going to be your lane for a while me thinks.

I'd say panic and that a missed approach is taught "escape maneuver" for when thing go wrong during an approach instead of just landing.

Re: Westjet Passenger Claims Corona Virus

The captain is just being fed information from the flight attendant. Many of which hate passenger and want them to suffer whether it being arrested or having your vacation ruined for daring to be on the same flight as this clown. I'm sure if the captain was in the cabin he would have said haha very ...

I'd hardly call it a junior weighted list.
If you have 4500 pilots and hired 1000 in the last two years how can you not be junior weighted? That is almost 1/4 of your list and if the rest is more or less evenly spaced it brings the average years of service way down.

The autopilot can be turned off with a click of a button. Unless you are saying this pilot could not hand fly the approach. It happens these day.

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

Guys a pitot static instrument failure or blockage is not going to bring down an airplane like this because the pilot can just switch to attitude+power. A gyro instrument failure is much harder to deal with.

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

Attitude indicator failure is insidious. It is not like at the flying school where someone sticks a cover on it while you are straight and level VMC.
