Re: Inflation in Canada spikes to 2.4%

I’d be amazed if you guys get more than 2%. I hope you do but no one north of the border is getting big wage increases these days. 2% is all we got at Jazz.... till 2035. Do you count movement? I've had my wages steadily increase 15% year over year for the last 5 years. 24% of that increase was in ...

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 ...

Re: More grist for the F18 replacement mill..

This is a temporary operational restriction until the issue can be accurately quantified and, if necessary, fixed. No need to be alarmed, it happens fairly regularly on operational aircraft as issues are uncovered (and yes, we find issues even on well established fleets). But hey, it's for the F-35...

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. Get out of my cockpit. But if you are a casual user, smart about how and when you consume with plenty of time to recover...

Will Transat pilots have DOH with realestate agents when they are bought out by a realestate company?
Maybe they’ll get to wear the old Century 21 yellow jackets from the 80’s now!

Re: Getting a mortgage as a Pilot

When I went to my bank for a mortgage they did a pretty good job of making me feel like a loser because they said I didn't make enough to qualify for the amount I needed which was only 200k. I then went to a broker and they offered me 50k more than the bank would right away, and that was enough of ...

Re: DOH merge.

I would not say it is fun to work at Air Canada, as a pilot. It can be fun, at times, but for the most part it is a grind. We work very, very hard and I think this is why many focus on the money. That said, I have my life away from work and wouldn’t really want the 2,3,4-day layovers away from my f...

There is no growth possibilities with the Typhoon. It wouldn't last us until 2070. And at 90M Pounds (that' CA$153M!!!) it's hardly a good bang for the buck...
