Re: Jazz - Dash 8 bond

Porter, Encore and Sky now all pay better than Jazz. The only company worse is ggn. The Jazz "bond" is the big carrot. After 2 or 3 years, people generally move on, either to AC, overseas, or elsewhere. Plus, with 800 hours and a fresh Q400 type rating, where are you going to go? Fly for 2 years, no...

Yeah, but then you wouldn't be able to live in a concrete jungle. One of the fantastically expensive cities of Montreal, Toronto, Calgary or Vancouver. We all know that its every pilot's dream to live there.

Take the money back from Bombardier, and give it to Viking. Restart the Q200/300/400 production. Build the Buffalo for civilian and military

Re: Fatigue is finally making the news

Regulators are usually written in blood. Nobody has died in a newsworthy story yet. Unfortunately nearly killing 1000 people (SFO incident) still isn't enough. The truly sad fact is NASA studies (or otherwise) aren't good enough for Mr Garneau, he must be waiting for dead Canadians before making cha...

Re: Skylease Cargo 747 Runway Overrun YHZ Nov 7, 2018

I wonder if they'll eventually realize that GPS approaches are quite often the safest approach available. TC is making the industry less safe by the cumbersome process operators are required to undergo to gain GPS and LPV approach approval.

Re: The other side of new duty regs?

Also, IMO The temper tantrum that ATAC is throwing about the duty regs is very short sighted. From the meetings I've sat in I would say panic is a better term than temper tantrum . It's surreal to watch multiple adults fight back tears over the implications to their livelihood if a flight crew shor...

Re: The other side of new duty regs?

Some of the worst operators are finding it harder and harder to find pilots. I know of one place that shut down already for a lack of pilots.

With jobs this plentiful, anybody with some experience is leaving for better lifestyle and working conditions.

Many years ago, I was doing circuits in a plane with a bubble canopy. Turning final, at the direction of the control tower (class D), I couldn't find the other traffic for the life of me. He couldn't see me either. Looking ahead, left, right etc. Then I looked directly upwards and there's his wheels...

Re: The other side of new duty regs?

Management saying that they'll just work more days, more overnight hotel stays are just being lazy. Sure they'll have to tweak the network, but for the most part it's just fear mongering. 80 credit hours is roughly 160 duty hours, and is 16 days at 10 hours. Working 25 days a month and only getting ...

Re: Taxiways and Snowbanks

I've wondered that for a while. At the airports I fly to, it's more likely to be the props hitting the wind rows. A notam will say "rwy xx/yy snow bank 5 ft inside east and west runway edges", then no mention of the taxiways at all. There's been a couple times where I was nearly stuck on the runway ...

What is this logic doing on avcanada?! Usually this is the place for ridiculous statements/arguments and an old retired guy to inflate his ego. Not often is there a properly thought out, reasonable and logical post like the one from shimmydampner above.

Re: Savin' the Prop

Shock cooling is a real thing, if you knew how most cylinders were made and you'd understand why. However shutting an engine off at low airspeed after a gentle descent isn't going to do anything. Even a cracked cylinder isn't going to kill you. Just won't run quite right afterwards and the owner won...

Which plane do you fly that requires autofeather on approach? I seem to recall the mighty Beech 99 being one such machine, although it's been a while so I could be wrong. Every Beech turbine twin that I've flown (half the lineup) requires afx armed for approach. However that's also irrelevant to a ...

You've still consumed it inadvertently, or otherwise. While I agree that trace amounts need to be permitted for accidental exposure, I dont want to be the legal guinea pig.

Re: PC-12 F/O TRAINING..?

TC is now requiring a PPC for any SE IFR, even in the right seat. I don't have a source for that, although I'm sure I could find it given enough free time. Meaning, you don't need an IPC prior to starting on a PC12. However that's only your Group 3 as it's a single. If you want to maintain your Grou...
