Re: EIC and Wasaya

No where in that release does it say there was a purchase, says they entered a partnership. That EIC injected some capital into Wasaya, I assume that means cash and they say there was an exchange of “shares”. EIC is a publicly traded company, one can buy and sell their shares. Wasaya is not, and you...

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

Insurance turns the wreck over to the company at some point, company spent the time and money to drag the wreck off Tarp Hill, why couldn't they take a few more steps and do something a little more dignified than toss it in the local dump? Nice memories for anybody that knew the pilot, actually mayb...

Re: Sensitive ears: can I still become a pilot?

Disappointed to read the advise previously given, young impressionable guys like you come here to get the straight goods and not jerked around. The short answer, the one you needed to hear? No! You should not be considering a career as an airline pilot, forget it, your ears are far to sensitive. You...

Re: TC really cracking down these days...

I do believe it was poor choice of words when they used "over-shot", I expect they meant over-ran... which resulted in questionable airworthiness of the aircraft, possible damage. The subsequient take-off most likely occured without the aircraft being inspected by an approved person i.e. an AME whic...

Right Seat PC-12 & C208 PPC's coming to theatre near you soon!

Seems TC has been reading their own regs and standards and are about to implement what has been in writing for years but perhaps slipped through the cracks? The PPC requirement for "Pilots" flying single-engine IFR with passenger or night VFR with passenger. Translation... F/O's require a PPC, not w...

Re: Falsifying a commercial aircraft logbook

Is an omission falsifying something? Intentionally entering something you know is incorrect is falsifying, failing to enter something might be just forgetfulness? And as far as TC goes, doesn't that just move you up in the hiring pool, you need to be able to spot a cooked book from 10 paces... takes...

This thread has been pretty quite for sometime, he's a new twist.

Air Bravo, currently advertising for Captains. I was told they are firing FO's that are refusing to take offers of left seat positions, company wants a 10K bond signed and paid upfront.

Further to the notion a company has an Op's Spec for lower than standard, Nav Canada does not maintain a list or look up who has or hasn't a spec that differs from standard, they just report occurrences that fall within there parameters for reporting.

Just as 703 can operate to 705 standards, one can always choice to exceed the standards. Also for clarity, currently there is no requirement for a 703 to employ an SMS program.
