Re: Choosing not to fly -- After a crisis.

I am terribly saddened to hear about your daughter. Stories like this hit me in the heart. I cannot imagine losing a child, it is not normal to outlive our offsprings. I cannot fathom the courage needed to go through an ordeal like the one your wife, your entire family and yourself have experienced....

Hey Mods, care to actually moderate this forum and delete trash threads like this? This is despicable for a public forum. If this thread doesn’t warrant deletion then I don’t know what does.

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

Roger. It's nice to see healthy wages on the long range jets. We run co-captains but obviously there is still seniority within the group with the older captains making more money. You start at the bottom of the scale (don't know what it is anymore) and once you hit the maximum we usually get cost o...

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

Can't believe Global Express, Gulfstream 550/650 and 7X captains don't make more then indicated on that pay scale They do. The 650/550 pilots in Calgary are well over 200k and my friend just got on a Global out of YYZ, over 200k. As stated earlier, it seems the numbers are purposely low for some re...

Re: Bombardier to relocate its Global aircraft final assembly site

Are aircraft undergoing flight test subject to those exorbitant landing fees? LOL... I'm sure an agreement to that subject was one of the clauses in the contract. Was just there twice this week and for a Global 5000 the landing fee is $790.02 (before taxes)... I'm sure they are going to get a big b...

Re: Bombardier to relocate its Global aircraft final assembly site

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

In my opinion the snow birds are out dated and the equipement is boring and outdated as well. Either shut them down or update them.

Well, well... Watch these two pros!

I think these two deserve to be fired or at the very least be suspended without pay for an undetermined time... The 1000 foot call is heard (EGPWS), then 14 seconds later one of the pilots ask for "Gear Down" which makes me wonder at what altitude they were at when the gears were down and locked. I ...

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

It should be representative. We fly the same planes in the same airspace. The only difference is we are allowed to fly considerably longer days and for the most part, we have higher living/ housing costs. The only reason it isn’t, is because a few large management companies seem to be suppressing w...

Bad news for Boeing and its MAX...

Europe's aviation safety watchdog will not accept a US verdict on whether Boeing's troubled 737 Max is safe. Instead, the European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) will run its own tests on the plane before approving a return to commercial flights. Hope Canada does the same thing. https://www.bbc.com/n...

These people are nothing but trouble makers that look at anything they can to stir sh!t.

I would love to meet these two idiots and let them have a piece of my mind... Total disgrace to the majority of French speaking Canadians and Quebecers.

Great story!

Glad he was well prepared and he came out uninjured. Great thinking on filming the rescue for others to see and learn from.

How cool was that to see that low Flying Hercules above the trees?

Great work from the SARs crews.

What is piss poor single engine performance? Either it can climb out from a v1 cut at the weights and airports it operates at or it can't. Are you saying it cannot?
I was told by someone that flies the Herc in the Forces, that the C-295’s single engine performance when loaded up is marginal.

Trump, the Republicans and Boeing are all liars...

These pilots knew what was coming and yet they couldn't get control over the MAX until they ...
