Re: New TC Cannabis rules

I think there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding cannabis caused by years of fear mongering. Do I think you can show up high and perform normally? Not a chance, same as alcohol. Get out of my cockpit. But if you are a casual user, smart about how and when you consume with plenty of time to recover...

Re: Bose aviation headsets...pleased be advised:

I totally get your rage. The other day I drove my grey market ‘83 Pontiac Fiero at the GM DEALERSHIP NO LESS.

Heard that Cargojet pilots just signed an LOU for less work days/higher pay.

Re: BETRAYAL!

Terrible terrible decision...Management always loves a divided pilot group... just look at Jazz. Onex is going to have you guys bend over and pick up the soap.

On the other hand, a jumpseat ban would be the stupidest retaliation, who comes up with these ideas?

Hello centre.....we have a fuel leak......CLASSIC ass cover. If nothing else it is a way to let everyone forget the issue because it can take up to a couple of years for the TSB to release the findings. I actually had a small fuel leak in between YZF and YCB in a Kingair couple of years ago. Luckil...

Re: Air Tindi Flight Missing

Doesn’t matter. Air Tindi does not operate their 200s single pilot. The capts don’t do single pilot PPCs. If it left the ground with the right side ADI u/s then it wasn’t airworthy.

Merge airline operation in to Rouge. Book value is 10-12$ with the excesses cash and hotel investment. Good luck convi...

It’s not that hard to code a software patch that would limit the MCAS range and speed of trim as well as include a proper AOA comparator and warning system. The major issue at hand is the stupidity and greed of Boeing releasing it as it was originally in the first place. Especially since apparently ...

It may surprise some, but CP's rarely make much more than pilots. I think at my company, you get base salary + $20k or something like that. In exchange, you get weekends off, set your own schedule, sleep in your own bed every night and don't have to deal with jet lag. Set your own schedule, good on...

Jazz can suck it. It’s not like he took a Kingair PPC from a mom and pop shop and went to work for the competition next door after 3 months. If Jazz paid their FOs more than starving wages then they wouldn’t have people leaving. Look at the SWG payscale, unlike Jazz, it’s a career destination and no...
