Re: Cargo TA

Cappo1 you realize you're not suppose to drink the Bong water I can assure you that cappo's sink is far cleaner than whatever water source you and Fl320 use in the van you both have parked by the airport. Rumblings of AC taking only the fins are not just rumblings. TS Employees and mechanics aren't...

Re: We Need A Science & Data Based Approach To COVID (Without Government Overreach)

It's a situation where the powers that be have chosen to follow a direction based on one group of "experts," that direction also happens to suit them politically, and those experts are largely political appointees beholden to their political masters for their positions. Meanwhile we have a...

Re: We Need A Science & Data Based Approach To COVID (Without Government Overreach)

PCR tests have been shown to be scientifically meaningless for COVID. Not only do they have a large tendency to have false positives, but they are also NOT a specific confirmation of a COVID infection. [25] This statement is confusing the SARS-CoV-2 virus and Covid-19, the disease caused by SARS-Co...

Re: Cargo TA

I expect the same. The pandemic was an aucpice to shutdown rouge and the nearly 1000 AC Pilot jobs it was and transfer all the flying to Transat. I don't doubt that was the concessions made to the EU regulator, all European and European Caribbean rouge flying forfeited to Transat. I hope ACPA is pa...

Re: Cargo TA

They can't not approve the deal or prevent the deal from happening, but they may say that you can not fly such and such a route, or such and such a frequency for a period of time, or other restrictions the pencil pushers may dream up, limits on codeshare or joint venture, slot divesture, etc. Yup. ...

Re: Cargo TA

And soon F scale when Air Canada will negotiate with Transat’s union ( AC already said no to the extension of the pilots contract stating they want to negociate after the purchase ). I have no way to determine if the bold statement is correct or not. You would have a much better idea. With that sai...

Re: Cargo TA

It would have been better for all of us had ACPA merged under negotiated conditions vs. a representation vote. We would have had our terms moving over to ALPA, would have seen ALPA Canada reorganized in a way that benefits the combined us, we would have had a full roll vote on Canadian issues. Mayb...

Re: Cargo TA

By the posts seen here, AC pilots no longer view themselves in a superior light now that they're talking about an E scale at the company. This might actually be a good thing so they can find unity with their brothers and sisters at TS in this upcoming massive merger. Or is that wishful thinking? Al...

Re: Has anybody given up?

A big issue for me is house prices always go up where I am, in 1 month they went up $100,000 and they kept going up the rest of the year. I honestly don't find flying even fun anymore but I'm not sure if that's just the burnout talking or is it a permanent thing. This business chews people up and s...

Re: Has anybody given up?

For a pilot starting out you're better off not owning yet. I made the decision to fly after I bought a house, otherwise I wouldn't have done it, either. There are much worse things in life than renting your accommodations - I happily did it for 10 years - and you give up a measure of freedom when y...

Re: Has anybody given up?

100% tenacity. A lot of the goals and timelines I set when starting out came and went by, but you just have to keep going and trying to progress. As mentioned though, years for a PPL is inappropriate. You should be a few months or so, you should be able to do PPL/CPL/IFR in a year if you're motivated.

Re: Porter sues YTZ Terminal owners

They should seize and auction off the slots that Porter doesn't use and recoup their losses. I'm pretty sure there's lots of precedent use it or lose it wrt slot restricted airports. What will turn into 12+ months of no flying and no payment would no doubt be seen as reasonable. I bet those slots w...

Re: Porter sues YTZ Terminal owners

When United gave up it's slots AC tried to get some of them, but the Port Authority gave them all to Porter. I don't doubt AC would compete for more slots if there were an opportunity. WestJet at the time didn't have the capability to fly to YTZ. I'm sure they would look closely at it also. Even Uni...

Re: Cargo TA

It passed with a shade over 52% of those who voted. Nope. Read the result. It passed with 60.3% of those who voted. 52% of all eligible voters said yes, 34% of eligible voters said no. 13% didn't vote, and if you choose not to vote, you don't count. I think furloughed/LOA members should have a vote...
