Re: Landing on hotter day

Hi Rotorspeed, Changes in temperature will not give you more or less ground effect. What you will experience on hotter days that will affect your aircrafts landing performance is an increase in true airspeed. This will result in longer landing distances and in some cases on very hot days, noticeably...

Re: Westjet to start ultra low cost carrier

This is frankly a complete garbage insult to the entire industry. Is it truly necessary to degrade flying to the same level as taking the bus?? Obviously there's going to be concessions and aggressive cost cutting (like the previous poster mentioned). They make a joke of their safety briefings and ...

It has been done.
I don't believe that is the case.
Can you find some documentation to support this?

Filing an IFR fp without an alternate can be done if the operator has the approved op spec.

Re: WestJet almost puts one in the drink

This is "fake news." Unstable approaches happen all the time and this crew recognized it and initiated a missed approach. End of story. Do you think it's normal to discover an unstable approach at 50ft? I'm pretty sure Westjet has an SOP saying all approaches have to be stablized by 1000ft.[/quote ...

Re: Air Lab 1900 FO Posting

I don't know why their requirements are shocking to you. If you look around the country 1500 tt is pretty standard for a 1900 FO position. CMA, GGN, EVAS all have the same requirements and from what I hear they aren't having problems filling the right seat.

Hey Snakes, I've spoken with HR at Georgian on a number of occasions in the last couple of months and it seems that 1500 TT is a firm number for the B1900. That being said, the industry is changing and regionals are hiring at a breakneck pace. Almost every regional has lowered they're hiring min req...

Re: Disparity between mainline and regional

Why cant 705 be where you build your hours? Why is 703/704 where we have to start? There are a number of countries and major airlines that hire students right out of flight school and place them right seat on a 737 or A320 and they don't get paid "mainline wages" right away. The reality is, the indu...

Re: Disparity between mainline and regional

I hear so much negativity these days about the wawcon at the regional levels. I'm excited about the movement going on at the regional levels. For pilots (like myself) with 1500-2000hrs and in some cases less, there are opportunities to get on a 705 operation and fly a Q or RJ. In years past those ki...

ATF procedures from the AIM that are not directly extrapolated from the CARS are purely suggestive and are a goo...
