On Pprune in a post they figure at the first touched down point (at the 4500' mark) that his IAS was 210-215 kts.

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

There are a few things to consider about any replacement aircraft for the Snowbirds. First, is cost and the ability to fund it. With lots of deferred equipment acquisitions on the horizon (CF18 replacement) a lot of $ will be tied up. And that is to say nothing of the $250 billion that the COVID re...

Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

New stats out for Quebec: 90.4% of the Covid deaths are of people aged 70 or older. The youngest people to die are 6 people between the ages of 30-39. 3023 (May 15 stats ) of Quebec’s 3483 Covid-19 deaths or 80.4 occurred in long term care facilities or private retirement homes.

Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

T Now its about moving forward Covid19 is over. I’m pretty sure you meant to say once Covid 19 is over. These numbers are harsh, 50-60% of the work force. But in light of AC hoping for travel to return to 25% of last years numbers later in the year still not as bad as it could be. They absolutely a...

Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

The harsh reality is that the airline industry as a whole was due for a correction long before Covid19 was even a thing, it provided the trigger for what was inevitable and necessary. Perhaps some correction but not to this extent... We are talking about 50% of the Air Canada work force here. I hop...

Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

I guess with the COVID-19 crisis ongoing it is not a surprise to see this.

Hope we can all go back to some sort of normalcy sooner rather than later.

Re: Bizjet Tailstrike

This can happen easily when landing a Challenger with Flap 0 at a higher than usual landing speed. Because the centre of trust is quite high on a Challenger, if you go in trust reverse and there is no forward pressure put on the elevator especially at higher speeds like in the case of a flap 0 landi...

Re: Non-essential border crossing banned

You're in the same boat a person using a car to go into the USA... If it is essential/business then I guess you will be allowed to go but if for pleasure then I would think they would not allow it.

Re: Corona virus and flight training

it seems CAE in Montreal is operating normally this week.

We have a pilot there doing his recurrent training on the Global.

They even supplied boxed lunches to the crews in class.

Re: YES -- Bombardier Bailout?

I'm fine with ONE LAST "bailout" with the following conditions. 1) BBD can not sell the A220. 2) Pierre Beaudoin and the "Family" is out 3) Appoint a real CEO 4) All shares become equal in the eyes of the law. No more A/B bullshit. Basically run it like a proper publicly traded company. Then, and o...

Re: Kobe Bryant chopper crash

What about the possibility of a medical problem with the pilot?

At that level of equipment, surely paying for two pilots is a good insurance policy.

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...

I can tell you that the senior captains on the Globals make a lot more money than that. But again in the corporate world, whether managed or on their own, the pay will depend on the own...
