Re: Chapter 11.

People lose their jobs all the time, supply and demand. Should the government bail out every company that is going broke? Hell no.

Re: Chapter 11.

Let them go broke, why should they be bailed out. Poor service offered by all airlines, to many flights to the same city, at roughly the same time. I’m tired of private companies getting free money. Let the weak go broke and the strong survive, or new one start up.

Re: Mud swerves a plane

Think there is more to the story than mud. Plane was just converted to a tail dragger. It has drum brakes that both come on at the same time, when and if they are both working.

Re: Degrees of flap of landing on floats

See so many guys only use 20 degrees and beat the crap out the 185. Get proficient using full flaps.

Re: Covid-19 impact of float operations

If this continues I can see a few operators locking up. Insurance has sky rocketed, and rates can only increase so much before it’s not economical to charter unless you are on government business.

Re: What happens to a Pilot in Case of an accident

I’ve hired pilot with one accidents before. You know they aren’t going to make the same mistake again. Also will become a safer pilot. Everyone makes a mistake. These pilots are now with WestJet, Air Canada, Transport Canada, etc.
