Re: Is ICS course enough for tech exam?

The ICS course IS the Jeppeson books. Most of the apprentices that I have helped study for their exams have used the Jeppeson material and passed the exams. You will needs to get the CARs for the AME book to pass the CARs.

Like mentioned above, junk all of the old, HEAVY radios. Unless you plan on flying lots in the winter, because they use so much power that they make great aircraft heaters! The most important avionics these days is a modern 760 channel comm radio and reliable transponder. With awesome apps like Fore...

On a 737NG there is a mechanical squat switch on the right landing gear scissors.

Once this cable pulls the valve open, hydraulics can deploy the inner speed brakes on top of th...

I have been working on these planes for 30 years now. More than 50% of the Aeronca/Champion/Citabria planes that I have inspected for the spar AD, at least 1 of the 4 spars of them had a crack.

It not really an airline's fault when a ground vehicle drives into fuselage and causes a large dent/gouge in skin. If you look at news videos you can see KF tinbashers fitting a sizable chunk of aluminum.

Re: ONEX plans

I heard that ONEX was going to pay $36/share before the MAX deal. So Boeing owes us shareholders $5/share!!!! One of the directors at WJ believes that ONEX didn't want to buy us to keep us the second largest airline in Canada, but wants to make it number one?? They defiantly have the funds to do it.

It will be spun that it is AC's fault, they should have know about the turbulence! Just like fog and thunderstorms are the airlines fault also. Mankind is getting stupider at an alarming rate.

Re: 787 Pilots

The Captains I dealt with working on the WJ 67's generally had employee numbers 500 and below. That means they have been with company since the beginning, or very close (20-23 years). Most have moved on to the 87 now.

Re: TSO requirements

I just read the Type Data Sheet for the C-120/140 and there is no mention of radio equipment. The radios in 1946 were huge tube filled things with only a few channels. Any modern radio would be 100 times better than a radio that the aircraft would have came with in 1946.

How is it possible to be a senior Captain at 28? How can you get 8000 hours and be 28? Did he start flying at 10 years old, or were many of his hours made up?

About a month ago, none of the blue and teal 37's had GPS in the morning at YEG. Many MEL's were applied to headstarts. I assume our neighbors had similar GPS issues?? They thought maybe a truck in Nisku had a jammer?

Re: 1st WestJet 787 off the Production Line

When I do the line and transit check on the 67, I see many of the captains have employee numbers around 500 or lower. And when I ask how they enjoy flying it, the response is unanimous that they all LOVE flying the 67 compared to the NG.
