Re: Swoop Blacklist

You need to beat them at their own game. Get a majority of the pilots to put a massive short on the company stock, then all sell their ESP and resign "en masse". Then using the ESP and short money start a completely pilot owned airline to take the market share WestJet had to give up when most of the...

Re: What does a pilot look like?

"You don't really look like a pilot" I can't believe someone would be stupid enough to say something like that in this day and age. Sounds like a complaint to the Humane Rights Commission or a lawsuit against the company. Or at the least a "People That Don't Look Like Pilots Lives Matter" protest he...

Toronto Center Sector Maps ?

Anyone know a way to obtain current Toronto Center/Terminal sector charts ? The charts that show actual ATC sector boundaries on them ?

Similar to what is posted on the canairradio website, but up to date.

http://www.canairradio.com/maps.html

Thanks for any info.

Re: Any Conflicting Traffic Please Advise

I certainly didn't see anything weather wise but that doesn't mean it wasn't there. ATC was obviously unable to clear them for a deviation - busy day on the half tracks - but were pointing them out to the other aircraft in the vicinity. Looking at some other weather archives there is some precipita...
