Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

Now take your washed up 4 bars and retire so someone more deserving and appreciative can take over. I won’t be commenting further on this as I’ve said what I needed to say - truthfully - about CMA - as have others. Oh - and as far as the “high turnover” - 4 in the last 6 months isn’t high turn over...

Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

As a current CMA 1900 FO in Calgary, i will offer some insight in to things and try and clear up some confusion from a few of the above posts. I will start by saying that every company - big and small - have there own set of unique challenges in this environment. CMA is no different. Yes our wages ...

Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

We do write the snags in the book. But you are still going to get a phone call from management asking why you didn't "fly it to XYZ airport". Plus they will never send maintenance to fix it. They will just get a ferry permit. 1 - Management shouldn't be calling asking why you aren't flying an aircr...

Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

In typical CMA zero common sense management they put these Dash's on a 6 day pairing AWAY FROM ANY MAINTENCE BASE. It NEVER sees a maintence person for 6 days straight. And then they pressure the pilots to fly them when they break down. You could just write the defect in the log book as required by...

Just wondering how much they pay for captain?

Re: WestJet Encore Pilot Open House Calgary September 4th

I laugh at how some of you are shocked at the notion of a 250hr FO being a possibility at Encore. The writing has been on the wall the past few years. With the way the industry and pilot supply is going, it’s guaranteed to happen at some point (if it hasn’t all ready). Jazz has been doing it succes...

Re: Overdue Cargo Airplane Bound for CYXS

Vertical stab has no pneumatic boot, just the horizontal. Its usually a black or light brown epoxy looking rubber cover. Brutal. Brutal. That's one of the more counter intuitive emergency procedures I've ever heard. So if the gear is on fire, put it down, which feeds it more air, but then at least i...

Re: Overdue Cargo Airplane Bound for CYXS

Close but no. Steady wing overheat light covers the wheel well and engine nacelle. Flashing is the leading edge. Doesn't really matter because the drill is the same. Reason being is a steady signal could be flickering on off as things are electrically getting out of control. Also close - It is whee...

Re: Overdue Cargo Airplane Bound for CYXS

The wing overheat has 2 ways of operating. If the light is on steady - it was an ACM failure, bleed duct rupture, or short/overheat in the leading edge wiring bundle. If it was flashing - it was a wheel well overheat, caused by a ruptured bleed line or brake fire. Power back - gear down and land as...

While I do not agree with Encore wages, I do think one list is a good step.

Not trying to defame the operator in any way. Anyone else find it odd that Keystone seems to have only 1 "incident" on wikipedia, and they don't exist on aviation-safety? I ended up discovering this when I was trying to read up on previous accidents. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keystone_Air_Service...
