I like how you chose your words very carefully when naming the companies. It's actually Westjet and Westjet Encore.

To have the guidance and backing of a pilot ran Union over an association that was bargaining with a loaded deck.

I'm pretty sure the proline automatically switches to true... Didn't fly a proline up north, but I seem to remember dicking around with it one day and it gave me a little "T" beside the track for Resolute to Cambridge when I punched those in.

Re: Medevac Pilot Career

Although life as a rampie is not glorious and you're bang on with your glorified floor sweeper comment, I still had lots of fun on the ramp. Get on with the right company, make a few friends that you work with and accept that you are a rampie for 1-1.5 years and you will have no problems. If you're ...

If you feel the need to post about it on avcanada then you should have felt the need to get off the airplane...or mention it to the skipper.

Make sure you know how far the runway edge lights need to be spaced apart. You might find yourself building a new runway next week and then wondering if it was 200ft or 60 meters... In all fairness I actually count the lights when lined up to see how much room there is. Having said that I don't kno...

Re: low time guy with a bit extra

That's a good point Krimson and I agree that starting your own construction company or any company for that matter is a heck of a lot harder and way more of a risk than being a rampie. But I don't really think this is a normal circumstance, could be wrong though. Just throwing ideas out there, but o...

Spending $10k to get a job where you make $35k doesn't sound like working smarter to me, but I see what you're getting at. However rampies don't just move cargo from position A to position B, there usually is some thinking and planning involved regarding airplanes. Where to park them, how to park th...

The point is that you dont want to work hard. you prefer to go the EASY way. work the ramp for 2 years and just WAIT for your turn - which I can understand in some point. Yaaaaaaaa, easy way.

No investigation will be conducted into who committed the murder.
What are they trying to say, that the coyote was murdered by the cows, errr?
