Re: BizJetjobs

Save management companies for a last resort, like if you can’t get a job at Tim Hortons or McDonald’s Lol. It's certainly a different experience working for the management company vs working directly with an ownership group or owner. If your news and decisions come from the management company then ...

Re: BizJetjobs

None of those websites will help you get that job. That's definitely a who you know, who you blow sort of job. What you'll find on most websites are management company postings (Skyservice, Chartright, Execaire, etc.). Occasionally you'll see bigger flight departments throw out a teaser, but they a...

Re: FedEx quietly begin single-pilot tests - ATR 42

They have some pretty interesting functions with the Garmin G3000 systems on smaller turboprop aircraft. I think the Meridian or TBM have auto-descent functions in the event of an emergency and will also land at the nearest suitable airport in the event of pilot incapacitation. Mind blown. With the ...

Re: Debris falls from 777 during emergency landing.

What's the Air Canada 777 fleet using? GE90 The affected triples are the first generation. I read that this specific one in the incident was the 5th 777 off the line but this could be wrong. Thank you montado - glad Air Canada is unaffected. I don't think they could take that setback as I think the...

Have you see the FedEx pilot compensation? It's no wonder they want to reduce the flight crew.

Re: Learjet to end production

You're so vain... Is it possible the product life cycle has expired? What innovations could have improved it? Well I don't mean to keep going back to the 85, but it had a full composite fuselage, one of the first on a midsized jet. Essentially it looked like a PC24 before the PC24, but with better ...

Re: Learjet to end production

Painful. They had the Learjet 85, which I thought was going to fit a wide segment of the bizav market and they just let it die. Like you said rig, failure to innovate is mostly to blame, other than their top of the line Global, and even then it was copy and paste. Challenger 600 series are going on,...

Re: Piper Meridian Operating Costs

2$ a gallon jet fuel, absolute lowest price near me right now is 2.65 gallon in a podunk little field with self serve. every major field within 200 miles is 3.84 or higher as high as 9.38 in atlanta. In Canada cheapest I can see SS is .98 so at least 3.72 a gallon. I will be generous and say the C9...

F**K Uncle Sam and the horse he rode in on. Canada was capable of building and flying the worlds most advanced interceptor in 1953. Revive and re-design a multi role platform based on the bones of the CF-105. Have none of you been listening to the 2020 mantra of "Stay local, support local and ...

Re: Is the Gripen E a real contender?

It's a shame the Boeing F15SE got cancelled. That would probably have been the perfect Fast Jet for Canada. Maybe some interest from Canada would make Boeing reconsider starting the program again. Did that turn into the F15EX? What a machine those F15s are. I don't know if qualifies for the multiro...

Considering Turdo and Company's green modus operandi, they will probably pick a CF18 replacement fighter based on a manufacturers' E.S.G. :roll: Well Sweden likely will be the best contender on that front as, last I checked, the U.S and all their corporations walked away from any green initiatives....

Interesting views. My understanding is that Saab believes stealth technology is slower to adapt to new threats, while electronic defenses such as their electronic warfare package (electronic stealth) can be updated continuously to match new threats. In lamens, as I understand it, the Gripen E is lik...
