Hi, can you elaborate on this? I was not aware that this is a thing. What typically happens when a pilot offers to fly for free?
Your pay at the end of the year is 0.00$

Re: Swoop moves to YYZ

Re: how long

The fact is nothing short of a fully working general AI will work for removing both pilots completely from the cockpit. And once we get there, EVERYONE Is replaceable (doctors, lawyers, basically everything) so it won’t really matter at that point. They still have drivers in front trains and they’v...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

Two important issues are being forgotten with this issue: The original intent of the lock down in March was to give the healthcare system time to prepare for an onslaught of cases requiring hospital beds, ICU beds, ventilators, etc. That preparation was achieved months ago and now the hospitals are...

Re: how long

Single pilot on a modern heavy jet sure, it's actually less workload than flying a Navajo SPIFR.

Pilotess? When that will happen nobody's gonna work anymore. Only psychologists! Well..even them can be replaced by a very good A.I.

Re: 2nd Job

Check First Air or Air Yukon i'm pretty sure they still have captains over 70 flying. Nobody should force you to stop flying at X age if you want to continue and are still fit.

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

Looks to me that there’s 2 dates, first is entry to travellers who are not Canadian citizens, and the second is quarantine for anyone arriving into Canada. Extended to July 31 - travel ban that bars entry to all travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people entering from t...

Re: Medicals

Note that the website with e-mail addresses to use for submission has some typos. The address for Pacific Region bounced. Resent fixing the misspelling of "civil" in the English portion of the abominably long e-mail and it seems to have worked. https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/aviation/contacts-off...

Climbing on VZF in a jet

When you have a planned tailwind is it more time/fuel saving in a jet to climb all the way to your cruising altitude on VZF (low buffet)?
