Re: Swoop ?

By that logic A380 pilots should make the same as a CRJ100. Hell, the guy doing minow trapping in a supercub, $2500/month plus room and board. They're all airplanes, not rocket ships. The bigger the plane, the bigger the paycheck. Similar sized planes doing similar work should pay the same. Swoop 73...

Re: New North Star Basler Accident

Most (99%) of us know exactly what to do at minimums (or any other established procedure). It's the dumb 1% who will continue to screw around and crash airplanes without learning.

Re: Dash-8 Runway Excursion

So how did this QRH... The emergency checklist basically said return for landing and maintenance action required before next flight. Leave out this sort of information... Nosewheel steering is electronically controlled so if plane thinks it's in the air it won't work. You can defer the nosewheel ste...

Re: Operating different machines.

IFR in the north largely uncontrolled airspace is a little different than IFR going YYZ to CDG on the NAT system, NRT using the polar routes or SYD across the equator and Pacific Ocean. It's also different to do it repeatedly, with a high degree of professionalism and competency compared to the odd ...

Re: Dash-8 Runway Excursion

Not sure it's possible to "cook" the brakes on a Dash 8-100, especially after 2 hours in the air (yer return). A MTOW V1 reject will be much harder on the brakes vs a long landing roll down a hill after burning 2 hrs of gas.

Also doesn't explain the lack of nosewheel steering.

Re: Bombardier to relocate its Global aircraft final assembly site

Hopefully they make a Q300ng and a Q400ng. Somebody's gotta compete with ATR. After this long, I'm sure there's lots of room for improvement.

Re: CARs 602.13 (2)b interpretation

I think you missed this part, the "and" being the key word

"...and
(c) the aircraft is operated
(i) for the purpose of a police operation that is con-
ducted in the service of a police authority, or
(ii) for the purpose of saving human life.

So unless you are a cop or medevac, it doesn't apply.

Re: The PM needs a new ride

The Canadian Government withdrew from the Super Hornet because Boeing was suing over the C-Series. Same problem with the max. ACJ320 series might be worth a look. Certantly cheaper to operate than a A310, and the 321 isn't too much smaller. Could even sell it to the voters as "extravagant twin isle ...

Pretty sure ALPA is still advocating for better than "international average". At least we're not 3rd worst in the world anymore. That's gotta be worth something. After all, we gotta start somewhere.

Re: New North Star Basler Accident

Fantastic logistics when the goods arrive on the frozen surface of a lake 1 mile from the departure airport. Do we know if the Sachigo incident happened on arrival or departure?

I'd imagine Northstar exec's and NW Company exec's are having some pretty serious conversations.

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Re: Swoop ?

You're right. Nearly killing people isn't enough. They have to actually be dead before lawmakers care. It's a broken system. Nearly kill 1000 and some relatively minor changes. Actually kill 346 and you ground a whole fleet type for 9 months and counting plus aircraft certification procedures change.

Re: Do you need a valid ppc to ferry aircraft?

Turbine, pressurized and 6+ seats can't be flown privately. Well, 604, but that's still under an operating certificate.

The ferry flight will be operated under somebody's OC. In the case of a PC12 it will be under 604, 702 or 703. You don't need a PPC, but you'll still need everything else.

The Transat 310s might not survive the merger. Great way to get some spare aircraft and parts for the RCAF. Not sure anyone else would want a wide body that old.

Re: New North Star Basler Accident

It's only two airplanes, but they crashed the first one twice. :roll:

Maybe TC Ontario region needs some assistance from Prarie North on what to do with sketchy operations (Buffalo, Keystone). Only allowed to crash so many planes in a short timeframe before you are done.
