Expired ATP Disks wanted

Hello,

If anyone has an old set of ATP disks (god knows they send you enough of them) laying around, I am looking for whatever you might have. They would just be used for training purposes, so the currency doesn't matter. PM me if you prefer

Thanks very much,

Private Aircraft Maintenance Tracking - Spreadsheet Alt?

Hello, I was wondering what is available out in the market for tracking the aircraft maintenance requirements for private aircraft. Currently the trusty excel spreadsheet is all I know of and I was wondering if any private aircraft owners have found a better alternative. I know of software for air o...

Oh, ok, that makes sense. I was told that TMA and MAT had their majority shares bought by Blackstone, that's why I asked :)

Re: TMA and MAT to merge

"The owner of TMA purchased 51% of MAT and now US based Blackstone Group has purchased the remaining 49%"

That is implying that the previous owner of MAT now owns 0%, which I believe to be inaccurate. Do you have a link for where you got that information?

funny, the Jetstream actually says to ONLY use clips, and not lockwire. I like lockwire personally but the clips sure easy if everything's lined up right.

I've been over this with a past employer and apparently companies running in a "continuous operation" do not apply to that labor code.

Re: 50 secrets a pilot won't tell you

“People don’t understand why they can’t use their cell phones. Well, what can happen is 12 people will decide to call someone just before landing, and I can get a false reading on my instruments saying that we are higher than we really are.”
Not sure how that works.

Why are employers so scared to post their "Company Payscale"

I have never understood this. Whenever I posted job ads I almost always included the actual wage offered, it was my opinion that by doing so it saved everybody from wasting their time if the wage wasn't what they wanted. I just don't get it.
