Re: The Return to Normal?

Kind of like ending deficits, there are easy answers, but none of the politicians will do it, because it would affect them! revoke most favoured trading nation status until Beijing cleans up its act.

Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

Saying Nav Canada is a terrible product is simply not true. I’m not saying we’re perfect but it’s definitely not terrible. I agree. Every country's ATC has its own idiosyncrasies but calling it "terrible" is over the top.... . I truly believe that if you took one controller from New York centre, Ch...

What's the dilemma? Just send them out. You don't risk anything and in 6 months you can say "I've been trying to get in with you guys for months" which sounds good in an interview.

Re: Brand new pilot looking for advice during COVID

I’d go visit these places. Show your face. Talk with a chief pilot or the owner. They probably won’t have a job for you but in 3 months they might. And someone they met and talked to for 45 minutes stands out a lot more than a guy who emailed his resume for that job. +1 This. and unlike the .50$ pa...

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

775/63% is 448m based upon the 24m/aircraft of the USAF order 20 aircraft should be easily done, especially if they did a larger order to replace the Hawks. Figure 2Bn 50 aircraft order including sims.... and lease out to NFTP, after all they are getting F35s overseas, why would they pay to run Hawks?

Good at SOP's, book smart but no critical thinking skills, and sort of good hands and feet. of course they went to AC in 6 months just as they were getting good at the job, I would ...
