Re: US European ban lifting?

A) You still need to enter Canada and clear Canadian customs which right now would not be allowed
B) isn’t the US on most of Europe’s non safe country list anyway?

Re: Porter sues YTZ Terminal owners

What aircraft would united even fly in there with? According to their fleet page they don’t even operate a prop airplane.

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: Chorus/Ggn/Sky merge

That was a few years ago and the proposed legislation got amended on the floor I believe, the section it was referring to wasn’t the pay equity it was the continuation of years of continuous service under the transfer and rendering section of my link not pay equity.

Re: Fired?

Social media policies are VERY clear. One may sympathize but one CANNOT slander or denigrate ones employer on risk of termination. Is swoop the employer of a westjet pilot? Is making a joke denigrating one's employer? Yes. Swoop is not the employer for a WestJet pilot. WestJet pilots work for WestJ...

Re: Cargo TA

And an arbitrator will probably say “you thought 10% less was ok on the 767 so 10% less is ok for the 777”

Re: Cargo TA

Cargo operators in the states have traditionally paid the highest because it’s the hardest flying on the body predominantly being back side of the clock. It should be 10% above mainline 767 rates not 10% below.

Re: Commuting, Acclimatization and new Flight Duty Regs

You can easily acclimatize to a new zone by changing your sleeping times as well. Personally even though I live in one time zone if left to days off I go to bed around 2-3 am while my wife goes to bed at 9-10pm. We are essentially acclimatized to 5 ish hours apart even though we live in the same ti...

Your base is where your initial acclimatized time zone starts and ends.

Re: How to build an aircraft hangar

Also look into the height of something like a 206 on amphibs or something along those lines, if you are ever going to rent out part of it or end up with a taller airplane you would hate to be height limited down the road. Going higher is a relatively cheap option as the biggest expense is going to b...

Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

Still blows my mind that an engine with this serious of a design issue made it through validation and certification wow. I think they only found it out after a few in flight shit downs, flight testing can only simulate so much and will never fly anywhere near the number of hours of multiple operato...

Re: C172 and Wind Shear

Q400 would deal with it better due to the excess power they have, 10 000+hp can get you out of a lot of situations although not something any pilot should go out seeking.

Re: Chorus to be sold ?

Air Canada may get to a point where they stop paying chorus for a few months and then go through CCAA at which point Chorus will most likely not get paid for those months and the CPA could be up for renegotiation as a reduced rate with much less aircraft. That is one risk being priced into the stock...

Re: Chorus to be sold ?

Not necessarily. What if they were offering $8 a share? 1.3 billion valuation? I find it extremely hard to see anyone willing to pay that much for Chorus in this current climate. It is worth about $8 a share. The market is depressed, and everyone that watches Chorus has a valuation between $4 and $...
