Manufactured in 1979 according to the registry.
All their planes had KW_ registrations I believe because Ken Wilson sold them the planes.

Not a big deal, just curious.

Maybe english isn't the guy's first language.

Maybe he's interested in working there and wants to know if pay and working conditions might be getting better or worse.

Why are you guys so eager to jump on one another?

Re: 4 fatal - crash nw of Waterloo ON Aug 24 2012

Very tragic. My condolences go out to the friends, family and employees at the school. A 'high speed' impact would have similar results to the College Bonanza that crashed during the night. Not as much was left of that plane...you couldn't even tell it was a Bonanza. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_7TR7c2...

Re: Anything Positive about a low cost?

People are knocking the salary structure to "start" at 38K but you know what it is not too bad at all. You don't think you're worth more than 38K as an airline pilot? Sad. I know people in office admin jobs that started at 45K. Just because you're making less than that now is no excuse for that dis...

It's all automated. Doesn't matter if it's ILS, NDB, GNSS. It's pretty much all the same to them.

Re: Air Canada plane makes emergency landing at Pearson

One hour, 43 minutes on one engine! I know next to nothing about these sort of procedures with a heavy, but isn't that a pretty good chunk of time? I'm guessing though, the 777 could probably sustain the full flight on a single engine if need be. http://www.geaviation.com/press/ge90/ge90_19961003.h...

Does this not mean Colgan can bid for AC flying? In effect, taking it away from Jazz/Sky/Georgian?
