Re: Returning From the US

I commute to my flying job in the US ever other week, I am away from Canada for 8 days at a time. I drive across the border in my car then go to work. Never had a problem going there or coming back to Canada the last few months. The usual questions from CBSA How long away? anything to declare? Any ...

Re: Cargojet777

Aren't they running dedicated cargo flights right now, which I would imagine would be more competitive than their typical cargo capacity?

Define "temporary".

Re: Morningstar

It's less that and more knowing the industry will correct in time and they want guys who actually want to put in a couple years.

But you are right, some 3000+ aplications. No AC or WS pilots need apply as per my source.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The CIRB protects a bad union like said union protects a garbage employee.

Good luck, you guys have your work cutout for you. Air Canada does not want a new union in there, so it's not just the CIRB and ACPA you are fighting, but the executives.

Enjoy the devil you know.

Re: how long

Step 1: Convince paying passengers to hop on with no one up front. Step 2: Developing security (I'm not talking steel doors) to keep people from hijacking the tech enroute. To get this certified and implemented at the airline level will be decades, particularly after the Max software debacle. It wil...

Re: Driving a nicer car than your boss....

Get a Tesla P100D, blow the doors off nearly everything, have access to the HOV when you're commuting, and after an extended duty day, the thing practically drives itself home.

Re: Open the door, no thanks

There is a business term to which I cannot recall that describes the optimization of repetition. I would imagine as time ticks on, like everything, we become more efficient at treating the virus, thereby reducing mortality rates. The biggest issues we faced in the beginning of this pandemic thanks t...

Re: Avro Arrow blueprints on display after sitting in Sask. man's home for decades

It would be great, but probably easier to design a better aircraft from scratch given the 65 years of advances in metallurgy and composites, aerodynamics, aircraft systems, and manufacturing processes. And considering a modern fighter is nearly breaking the worlds best funded military, I don’t thin...

Re: CBAA Salaries

I think everything has gone out the window now. It's tough to read the market, as lots of airline guys are trying to return back to corporate. The previous salaries posted aren't too far off and are higher in most respects from the rates from last year. Some say it was due to operators falsely repor...

Does that sum include a support program? They are due for replacement but we don't have the cash for that. I was always a supporter of bombardier but I'm done with them.

I'm surprised they didn't go with Globals, nearly same cost to operate. Maybe something designed in the last 20 years.
