Micro Drone

I’m having a discussion on another forum about flying drones less than 250g in a control zone. Some people believe you can fly in a control zone less than 100 feet because the TC rules are so vague. Any input?

Re: YUL Base

I’m YUL based and do not speak french. The worst part is if your with a Québécois crew, once you leave the aircraft they will only speak French. In the airport, hotel shuttle and if you go out to eat with them, even though they know you don’t speak French.

I have 2 cases of toilet paper and a case of Purell hand sanitizer that I’m willing to trade for a 2017 or newer Tesla.

Re: CATSA

Aircrew are exempt ... Only to the extent that you are asymptomatic, and only to get yourself to and from work and to perform your duties while there. When off duty you must self-isolate after each international trip. This is how the law in Newfoundland and Labrador is written and it also includes ...

Re: Corona Virus

IMHO, there's a significant cultural component to the frustrations the Italian doctor expresses. Distrust of political leaders and flouting the "law" is a spectator sport over there. The problem in North America will be that 75% of the population live check to check and can’t afford to stay home fo...

Re: New hire bids

I don’t think the hiring at AC or Jazz will stop any time soon. Both AC and Jazz are short on pilots. If anything a slowdown in flying might allow them to catch up.
However I dream of the day we are blocked to 77 hours per month again.

Re: Corona Virus

No one care about your Trump bashing. Keep it to your other social media and let us talk about the topic. I disagree, I think this is the perfect time for Trump bashing given the fact that he’s botched the entire American response to the virus, continues to point fingers, and talk out of his a$$. H...

Re: Corona Virus

Scientists: you should wash your hands because of Coronavirus.

People: I'm gonna stop flying, hoard masks, work from home & totally rearrange my life.

Also Scientists: the Climate Crisis will kill millions - we must use clean power & change how we get to work.

People: No way.

I’m wondering if the DEC opportunity will pull some people from encore currently not qualified to upgrade because of the matrix. It would be a no brainer if you’re living in YVR or YYZ...

When I’m in the bathroom at the airport and I see like three people in a row take a piss and leave without washing their hands, I think no f*cking wonder it’s spreading so fast.

Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

In theory, yes. However things aren't as they were 2-3 years ago. Pilots taking 2-3 attempts to pass the PIC (whereas it was a one and done for a long time) and many FO's upgrading and just scraping through. Sure they meet the "minimum" but that minimum was based on past experiences and the type of...

One thing that needs to be said, unless you are READY and CAPABLE of going DEC you should be more focused on being an FO for a year or so and upgrading when you’re ready! Let’s use some common sense here... a guy flying corporate jets around the world going DEC is one thing. A 3 year flight instruc...

Nope, there is no pilot in the US earning enough money to make me envy him/her. I’ll stay here in Canada with my pay. Thanks though.
