Re: Kidney stones in pilots

I had to have one surgically removed about 8 years ago, because hey I like big things and they could not do lithotripsy to break it up. My CAME, since retired, was excellent. Until you are diagnosed with some, don't worry about it. Drink lots of water. If you are unlucky enough to have one. You will...

Re: Amputee PPL

I would start with talking to a CAME for a medical. Without one he can not hold a PPL. Obviously missing the leg will require some hoops to jump through however Transport Canada is usually reasonable about getting people in the air if they can. Once that has all be sorted and what would be required ...

Re: Flying to YUL

If you can take a friend, who is at least useful in the cockpit with you, if not a pilot. They can help navigate the ground portion, tune your radios and allow you to keep your eyes out. Besides it is always more fun with a friend!

Did you read the article? They are taking all that knowledge for the 515 all new aircraft. So yes they will do that too while offering essentially a new airframe in the mean time.

Re: ALPA Jumpseat Question

We have a list of all of our Jumpseat agreements. Each carrier has there own policies and procedures around how to go about getting the jumpseat. So no you can not, you would have to continue to use your ID90 or Zed fare agreements until such time as your ALPA Jumpseat rep establishes the agreements.

Re: Air Georgian Bankruptcy

Pasco only offers a few SAAB 340s to WestJet feeder service, it still has a strong and robust 704/705 airline of it's own brand on the west coast not associated with WestJet or AC for that matter. Still a good career place if you want rural west coast living on either the 1900 or the SAAB.

Re: Swoop

Could this be that an FA turned around and said they would not fly with a sick passenger and the Captain's hands were tied and that's why no evaluation seemed to have been completed? I've certainly been told in enough CRM classes that when someone decides to deny boarding, the Captain cannot overri...

Or go ID90? It’s a little more but your no longer bound by the jumpseat rules. Most of my

Re: Would DeHavilland Canada restart Dash 8 300 production?

Just take a few sections out of the 400. Same engine wing prop etc. Derate the engines and bobs your uncle. Probably 95%+ parts commonality and if it’s as similar to the Q flight crews might be able to hope from one to another.

The one thing I will add is if you have the money to get done faster, do it! I managed zero to Multi IFR in about 18 months and I am no super bright superstar. The quicker you get the CPL the quicker you can get a job.
