Re: Bush Pilot career advice as a stepping stone

Sounds to me like you'll be happier renting or buying a private plane.

Re: Fast Air

I knew they were getting cramped for hangar space in Winnipeg, but this seems to be an over reaction :-D

Impressive though, wish them all the best!

Are they selling shares in Winnipeg and Abbotsford on the same machine? I believe their Hondajet is based in Winnipeg but advertised in Abbotsford.

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

Here in Canada we have a Canada Transportation Act and Agency that currently permits airlines to issue a voucher rather than a refund of a ticket where the pandemic has prevented the airline from completing their part of the agreement. ..... On the other hand, airlines facing huge drops in passenge...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

You can write it off, or try to get a refund; it’s your call, and I have no care either way. Just don’t expect me to dip into my pocket because you trusted Dodgy McRetailer. You seem to imply that people bought stuff and prepaid at shady retailers. I'd hardly call Air Canada or Amazon a dodgy retai...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

Any person who wants to funnel my tax money directly to people rich enough to fly to Barbados instead of to people who have no food can go **** themselves. It's hard to improve on this. Piss off airlines with your entitled attitude. You're not special. Yeah yeah, but you're forgetting that airplane...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

The issue is airlines will literally go bankrupt if they give refunds. The majority of cash on hand at some airlines is pre purchased tickets. What should happen: airlines should be given bailouts, and as part of the deal, they must refund anyone who wants a refund. I think this is win-win. The pub...

Yup pretty disgusting. Do credit cards protect you here? After all they are not delivering the promised services.

Re: Returning From the US

That is correct, but, it does NOT apply to the folks in the back. What do you mean? Pilots in the back are also exempt. Exactly. It doesn't matter where you sit, it doesn't matter if you are corporate pilot on an airliner or airline pilot in a small private aircraft. If the purpose of the trip is w...

Re: Blue Bird in Hot Water

I have always found it worrisome that our aviation regulatory structure puts a limitation on just about everything we may fly in a plane, except the weight of an individual person. I once discussed this with TC, after being a commercial passenger on a Canadian airline, as was told by TC that: "We'r...

Re: ASA CX3 flight computer or cellphone app?

I have a lot respect for the E6B, it is a beautiful piece of equipment. But I've never really used it other than for a few pre flight prep exercises, groundschool and the mandatory flight tests. Once I got the license, I've never used it anymore. And that was in airplanes without a GPS. If you are m...

Both. As long as you are a pilot it seems people just Waltz through without quarantaine requirement.

Re: Returning From the US

No quarantine necessary as crew, even when deadheading back. That was the situation a month ago, I don't think it has changed.

I don't think any private plane meets the intent of the exemption, but it seems to be the way it is being applied.

It's not a free service. We're all products being sold to advertising companies. :wink:

Re: STC for mogas required?

Does that mean that service instruction from lycoming is pretty much useless? Or does it count as permission on the engine side of things?
