Re: On furlough: Now what?

It’s a great initiative you’re taking, not many would want to hit the books and write papers and exams, especially when they’re working full time. I’ll give you my experience. In my mid 30s I decided to pursue an MSc in an aviation related field. I chose this because I have about 16 years of flying ...

Re: Turkish overrun

Something going on with their operation and Sabiha airport itself. The runway is uneven, sloping up then down, terrible when wet. The ILS for 06 is 3.5 degrees, and standard speeds are 180 to 6 and 160 to 4. Surrounding terrain is all hills, which cause added turbulence on the approach. To maintain ...

Amazing.

Tow driver is not an entry level job. Therefore your racist comment doesn’t hold true. Someone off the plane would start off as a baggage handler, if anything.

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Plenty of time? Based on what? Stabilization criteria is not based on time, but height. For us, by 1,500 fully configured. 1,000 fully stable. By 500, speed stable (if given a speed by ATC). I don’t know how they operate, but I’ll check, as we have many pilots from their airline now working with us.

I would like to know what airline has you on an 11 hour flight with no AP ? That's a lot of fuel burned below RVSM.
Sure,

YYZ - GRU - YYZ, YYZ-SCL-YYZ, YYZ-GIG-YYZ. Been der dun dat with no AT.
AP is required for RVSM, whereas A/THR is not. The above question was with regards to AP no?

Re: Working overseas as a Canadian Pilot

Some good advise above, I’ll add a bit more. I’ve done the Canadian path then moved overseas. You have to know what kind of hours will help you overseas. Some airlines don’t care about the real experience that we get in Canada. They just care about jet time. Some prefer right seat RJ time over left ...

To Jack and Complex, Do you think they will ever open up a Canadian base like they have in the US, and hire on the 737/787? Might be wishful thinking but stranger things have happened........

Not a 787 pilot, however I imagine their moving map is similar to the one I use. You can edit the Map, and one of the functions is to insert a Cross on closed runways, taxiways. This serves a few purposes: - something to do while in flight - to remind us after the 12 hour flight which taxiways are c...

Norwegian is publicly traded, therefore anyone can access their financial sheets. I’m writing a paper on them now as part of my masters degree.
