Re: Air Canada and SFO - Part III

For my own curiosity - does Air Canada operate the RMPs with SEL light On or OFF? I've always flown with SEL light OFF - my company has recently changed to SEL light ON - going to cause some problems imho. SEL light OFF is SOP. FO reaches around the thrust levers to operate the Capt’s RMP to tune V...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

But nice try, bigot. Nice try with the name calling, doesn't work with me ! Facts are facts ! Yes... facts are facts!

Obviously, Being Ethiopian and calling on "god" He was most likely calling on allah !

Re: Military license to CPL

I wonder how many civilian pilots out there did there 300 nm cross country with a buddy, splitting the cost so you didn’t have to do two 300 mile trips to meet the requirement... I seem to remember that being a common practice once upon a time, although I see they have amended the CARs since that ti...

Re: DOH merge.

Most of the AC pilots I have spoken to expect all TS pilots to go bottom of the list as per their collective agreement. Has this ever happened in any merger in North America? Anywhere? The contract says no such thing. It wouldn't matter even if it did. Most AC pilots I talk to know full well that B...

Re: 737 max

The simple answer is to fly an Airbus... you can leave your feet on the floor and your turns are still coordinated. And there’s no after takeoff checklist, so you can’t miss what isn’t there! And they are nice to hand fly, but have a brilliant autopilot and auto thrust system for the rest of the tim...

I suppose it helps if you read the actual question.... I read C180 and immediately thought of venturis! For an engine mounted vacuum pump, there is probably a better option than cutting a random piece of sheet metal to fit.

Hey,

Does anyone know what positions they are hiring for in the Apr 22 class?
They haven’t got the training report available quite yet... there may (or may not?) be an equipment bid by then. But expect more of the same; I doubt that this will be that one chance to nab a 777 DEC position!

Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

ACPA is reviewing the options to see which profit sharing plan gives us (them!?) the best outcome... but they’ve been busy with other issues of late (that 737 thing, I think...), so they haven’t got around to doing the math yet.

Re: WOW Air collapses

The hotel has their name and address anyway, so they can go after the guest if they like. I believe you sign a paper that says you are responsible for payment if your company doesn't pay. Maybe some airlines are different, but I think most hotels use that standard thing. Most hotels we stay in just...

Re: Requirements for day stays

There is no CARs requirement, unless you are making use of a split duty day. If your company has an SMS program, you can make an argument for a proactive fatigue mitigation strategy. OTOH, having spent some time in most of the hotels in most of the communities in Northern Ontario, you may find the a...

Re: Questions on intercepting a course(GPS)/a glide slope (VLOC) using HSI

It is important to recognize what information the CDI is based on. For traditional VORs and ILSs, deviations are based on angles, so the closer you are to the station, the faster the needle will move. GPS derived CDI needles, on the other hand, are based on distance off track, so as long as the scal...

Do they do an echocardiogram in the preemployment medical?
Yes
Sorry just to be clear, that's an echo and and electro they do? Echo being the one where they use sound waves, basically ultrasound the heart.
I believe they just do an ECG, not an echo.
