Re: Cargojet and Amazon partnership

The only thing that truly matters is, are they getting 747s?

Re: Interim bid out

I think I know more people now applying there than I did 5 years ago when the original openings finally popped up.

Everyone's hungry for the 5% chance they get to burn a bid to go left seat in 3 years.

ACPA ain't coming to the new hires rescue any time soon.

Re: Speed limits and STARs

I also feel I need to clarify I'm looking for a legal interpretation/argument, not for advice on what to do or how much to think (or avoid thinking) about this matter. I'm already aware of how different pilots and operators tend to behave with these limits IRL. fliter, STARs are designed with the l...

Re: Speed limits and STARs

Try flying anything less than 250 near New Jersey and you'll see how fast ZNY tells you to pick it back up, usually with scorn. If they could have you go into those airports at barber pole they would. Fly the posted limit, same as you drive, unless you can't due to external conditions (turbulence, i...

Renewing someone’s TFW permit? Bingo. Still would be nice if this position was open to regular Canadian flight crew without such incredibly limiting requirements. Ah well. S.

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

What do you do in the case of a pilot who is an awesome pilot but constantly pushes weather (and promoted it), takes risks, screw the checklist we're 1 minute behind and is a "get er done" company man? The company loves him and he just happens to be the Chief pilot. If the company is big enough, an...

To the OP, through all this, have you taken the time to address the issues to their abilities and to actively try and make them better?

Re: FlightExec Falcon 900EX FO Ad

Apply and carry that positive energy into the interview and please report back. There are varying on-call setups. Worst is obviously the 14/3 - 2 hour on call. Don't accept a 14/3 - 2 hour on call as you will absolutely regret it. Best and most likely case for a 900, 3 crew on a rotation,10on/5off. ...

You dress like Hitman, 3 year bond IIRC, pay is industry standard and I think it's 2 crew, so on call. Hopefully this spot is for a 3rd crew ...

Re: Setting pitch trim for takeoff

Many jets or high performance aircraft have a specific setting for CofG that you need to set the elevator trim to. They can get very unruly if not setup properly. Do a good FATS check before departure: Fms/gps flAps Trims Speeds/Speedbrakes You can use any combination of controls in that check, but ...

This is a temporary operational restriction until the issue can be accurately quantified and, if necessary, fixed.

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.
