Went to the grocery store today. Ended up in a lineup, in the rain, and a bit of wind, at 3 degrees C. Behind an old gent, 6 feet away. And i also am an old gent.
On the other hand, you didn’t have to queue for the checkout, did you?

Re: Coronavirus Numbers

Why can we not isolate the vulnerable and elderly instead of everyone??? Because even if you isolate the vulnerable and elderly, enough not-elderly and not-vulnerable people need intensive treatment that hospitals will still be overwhelmed and the health system will still collapse, which will have ...

OK, great. I tried calling my AME but no answer. Thought maybe he was shut down. I'll try again.

Thanks.
He might be shut down. But that would be his choice.

AMEs and AMOs are for the most part still working so you should be able to schedule an inspection.

Re: In ‘stunning’ reversal, Pickering is asking for airport to be expedited

If they built a high-speed monorail link from airside at YYZ to airside at YHM, you could think of it as a YYZ ramp expansion. However long it took it would still be quicker than getting to most of the gates at Heathrow Terminal 2.

Buttonville and Downsview aren't big enough or in the right places; Pickering is/was supposed to be much larger than either.

Re: In ‘stunning’ reversal, Pickering is asking for airport to be expedited

Which airports are shuttered or being shuttered? Sorry. I did not word that very well. Not local to YQT, I was referring to the changes at Buttonville and Downsview. Maybe shutter was the wrong word. CYQT is Thunder Bay, and Buttonville and Downsview are in Toronto... I'm not making the connection.

Re: In ‘stunning’ reversal, Pickering is asking for airport to be expedited

Which airports are shuttered or being shuttered? Downsview is owned by Bombardier; they will want the most money for it, which they will get by turning it into housing. Also it's very close to Pearson so coordinating approaching and departing aircraft would be a nightmare. Buttonville already is a r...

Re: Why is avgas not cheaper?

But the price of the crude is set in $US. But then that is true for mogas, too, which has dropped by nearly 50%. To be honest FBOs are taking such a hit right now it seems wrong to deny them a few extra cents on whatever they are managing to sell.

Re: Airlines halting flights, but skies are full of airplanes

Why would they change the flight number for a flight that's already scheduled?

I'm pretty sure the real answer has something to do with chemtrails, anyway.

Re: Flight school delays - Covid19

One hopes the backlog of medical certificates can be cleared in the months or years these measures are in place. I wonder if TC has ever taken so long to produce an initial certificate that it had expired by the date of issue?

You looked in Standard 571.07. The quoted text is from Regulation 571.07.
