Re: Central Mountain Air FO Pay

Even if I'm working for somewhere, even for a couple years, it's nice to be paid an actual "Competitive Compensation", instead of lied to about the pay being competetive. Pay is on par with industry standard, and all that jazz is a load of BS. The best line I ever heard from an exec./manager, when ...

Re: Ukraine International PS752

There's a video from an Iranian on the ground filming an aeroplane on fire, prior to impact and a massive explosion. The 737 was on fire prior to impact, and appeared to be in one piece prior to impact - and based off of the large area of debris, one can surmise that it impacted the ground at a rela...

Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

One article I saw stated that there is a shortage of "right seaters" - thus the government should step in and throw some cash at the problem. I'm imaging there will be a push on amongst the larger schools to start a pseudo integrated program for local students - fast track applicants from zero time ...

Yes. Memory is an odd thing isn't it, because shortly after posting I recalled the incident at Fort Langley where the Cherokee landed short of the then grass runway; on a flight test. Didn't end well for the Cherokee, and one can imagine that the buggering up of a landing in that manner would resul...

The emails that go out from Skies Magazine occasionally have links to articles about the trial.

The one describing how an employee was pressured to delete correspondence about pilot training/records was a fascinating insight into the operation.
