Re: Since this "Pilot Shortage" started, has pay gone up at any regional or major airline?

Lets just get this Swoop guys under ALPA Canada and proper working conditions. Managements are playing us with the usual conquer and divide. We are all in the same boat. They want to make an ultra low costs? It will not be on the pilot shoulders.

Sometimes it is worth it to stick together and fight

This is a good example of people working together, it is refreshing to read this article. Ryanair has been abusing from European loopholes for so long, looks like the pilot European mess is getting sorted out, slowly but surely.. https://www.irishtimes.com/business/transport-and-tourism/european-cou...

Re: What is the deal with all the French on the radio?

Never been an issue. The problem isn't the language, the problem is racist assholes and norrow minded idiots who can't look beyond their villages or borders. Neither French nor English are races.

Re: What is the deal with all the French on the radio?

Canada is one of the few places where a language other than English is allowed; it is actually illegal in France. There is no good reason to have French; it is totally political. We are doing no favour to permit French; if someone wants to have a career in Aviation, they will have to have "Aviation...

Re: Boeing studies pilotless airplane

I think the hold up will be reliable data transfer, but once these guys are up, it will be pretty cool! Reliable data transfer..., to me it is completely non sense to allow remote control of airplanes. NSA, FBI, CIA They all got hacked. No software system is completely fail proof from hacking.

Re: Boeing studies pilotless airplane

The "pre-programming" is essentially done by training rather than programming, so you have to feed these systems massive amounts of training data (100's of millions of flights I suppose) which then causes the neural nets to weight and form pathways, very similar to the human brain. Its a very diffe...
