Re: Pivot Air

I'd prefer if the passengers were flown by a company that treats their employees well. Pivot Air's current pilots, didn't they make life quite difficult for many pilots over the years?

Still don't need to go to sim with an expired PPC, depends on how long expired though.

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

Caravan doesn't have buckets of power to fly though any problems. Caravans are under powered, and flying around northern Canada in the winter. It's a different animal.

Anyway, I thought they decided requiring a PPC wasn't legal. The employer was obligated to do the required training.

Re: What's your $day$ rate?

I made just over $100,000 last year. Divide by the number of days I flew, it's somewhere around $550/day. Now obviously the pay scale is structured quite a bit different than that. Short days with little flying I made less, long days or OT I made significantly more.

Re: Liberals may target the Transportation sector with very hefty Carbon taxes.

Airliners are generally in the 2-3 liters/100km/passenger range. So tax the shit out of these passengers so they take their SUV instead and burn 10L/100km. Now the 150 seat airliner burning 400L/100km is now going to be replaced by 150 SUVs burning 1500L/100km. Granted some will carpool, families an...

It eventually attempted to land without the landing gear exte...

Re: Northern Airlines Receive Gov't Funding

Only NWT airlines deserve to be saved. If you fly in the Yukon, Nunavut or fly for a "fake" northern airline south of 60N, your airline should fail. Maybe it's that all the reserves in the provinces all have road access, so airlines are unnecessary. :roll:

Re: Piper PA 31 operating costs

500. Probably pretty close to that...per hour. 140L/hr of avgas, so do the math on the airport price Overhauls aren't cheap on those engines, and every 1800-2000hrs for each engine. Somewhere I heard that a small PT-6 is actually cheaper in terms of overhaul cost per flight hour. I'm talking King A...

Haha TFW would be better going back to their own countries where they have better flight and duty regs! Canada is bottom 3 in the world. Maybe I'll go with them.

Darwin awards weren't far off. Some of the passengers were trying quite hard to win one.

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

Time of the accident was 0 dark 30...I'm thinking that fatigue had a bit to do with this... AGREED Yeah, but nobody cares about fatigue. Remember how hard industry lobbied that pilots aren't tired? TC even has the 2-stage implementation plan, because 703 and 704 pilots and their passengers are less...

They'll be out of cycles, so run them unpressurized with a giant hole cut in the side to fit roof rafters. I'm sure they'll still be sporting Jazz paint because anybody in Pickle Lake is too cheap to paint planes.

Re: Westwind

I'm wondering if they're looking beyond this accident and digging deep into the northern icing culture. Do for the north what the Dryden Inquiry did for southern Canada. They did that survey after-all. Everyone knows planes flying in the north fly with a different interpretation of the regs, and it'...

Re: Anyone lost faith in Porter's restart

Much of their traffic is trans-border. With the border still mostly closed, what's the point in flying? Maybe they need to make a domestic push?

Re: AC pilot salaries now?

@55h a 787capt is pulling only about 15500/month.... Was about 22500 at 80h And then you folks all wonder why nobody listens to the crybaby pilots whining about poor wages... Instead of complaining and bitching that others make more, maybe be happy for them and work towards improving your own pay. ...

Re: Hanging up the headset... anyone done it ? Anyone thinking of it?

And people wonder why the pilot shortage existed. Pilots are treated like crap the second there's a surplus, treated as a liability when there's a shortage. It's a messy business, and I can't blame anyone for leaving. Except maybe the executives who can't be bothered to treat pilots like human beings.

Re: DC-3 Went off Runway

Yes these guys still have a job, but I bet they wish it was for a company with a better safety record. Brakes breaking is small compared to their other issues. Hopefully they're getting those issues cleaned up and become that safer company.
