Not going to argue with that, but I know for a fact there are at least 3-5 brand new 37 Capt’s (what’s that like 5-7 year wait) who would leave tomorrow for a new hire job at AC because they work every mo...

Re: Frost formation

You also don’t get frost when it’s really cold like -35 and below because the air has no moisture then

Re: There are no "Bad Seats" for commuters on the A220!

Did you really buy a seat, or were you essentially assigned a free standby seat? If it was free you should probably just be grateful you got a seat and not complain. If you paid for it and you really want/need the space, you're going to have to risk hurting someone's feelings to get it. If you're u...

Re: Just a little miffed - preheating

The ONLY thing is if the DOM didn’t realize that was someone’s parking spot and perhaps it wasn’t the first time they had someone steal it so they were fed up. Still a quick “who’s plane is in my spot?” Is more appropriate

Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

The degree is already subsidized though So the government goes ahead and -- for argument's sake -- fully subsidizes pilot training. 100%. Mom and Dad say to Johnny, "go try out that pilot thing". "That's a respectable career". Will the quality of the average FO coming on the line, get better or wor...

Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

Your degree you were taking was subsidized by the government, so in a way everything you learnt until you had to drop out indirectly subsidized your business.

This isn’t an argument about if a degree helps a pilot be a pilot but more one of whether the training to be a pilot should be subsidized.

Re: Useful things to do before the beginning of training

save up enough to do all of your private + some additional contingency cash. It will take way longer and cost way more in the long run if you have to spread the training out because you run out of cash half way.

Exactly just because Canadian ATC does it as a best practice doesn’t mean you can trust ATC elsewhere to do it as well.

Unfortunately, you can't claim this tax credit anymore. It has been eliminated for 2016.

No there's not. What there is is a shortage of is family doctors in rural areas. Indeed.
