Re: alcohol and jumpseating

From my company’s jumpseat handbook. Wouldn't that be for company personnel? I'd find it hard to believe that a 1900 pilot jumpseating on a 747 at a different company would be considered a crewmember. Our handbook says no drinking on any carrier. Could be bs but I don’t care enough to look any deep...

Re: Future of Canada's Airline Industry

You need to ask yourself a serious set of questions. Do you want to make money? Do you want to have a family? Do you want to have a social life? Do you want to be able to make your own choices? If you have answered yes to any of these, you should consider banking. The aviation industry is booming r...

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

Here's my 2 cents worth.... I have actually been in that kind of situation before. In the 90's I worked as an FO for about a 1.5 yrs on a high performance airplane. It was my first flying job, hired at low time hrs (500), knew nothing about commercial aviation, and I was older than most of my capta...

Fucking A we get paid more to fly at night.
And we get paid more premium to fly overseas.
And we get Nav pay.
And we get a blended rate when we do training or collect a guarantee, 1/2 day/night.

Why don't you? :roll:
What is the Nav pay?

Re: How long did your commercial license take to get?

Less than a year. That was with the east coast wx as well. You could probably go from 0 to commercial multi IFR in 9 months or so if you really hammer down and have good wx and airplane availability.

We’ve all flown with one or two of these guys. If you’re at a reputable company you can report it to the training department or SMS it. If others do the same it will probably be taken care of. At a smaller or sketchy operation there isn’t much you can do other than talk to them and management about ...

Re: Should it take 2 years to get a Private? Thank you Sault College. :(

So basically you have 2 years of schooling and nothing to show for it. Assuming it is the schools fault and not yours that’s quite the ridiculous time line you’re working on. For comparison, I went from 0 to commercial multi, IFR in less than a year.
