Re: Jumpseating for real

Except airline pilots in the states can sit in the actual jumpseat on airlines that aren't the ones they work for
I didn't know. What's stopping us from doing the same? That would be a good start.

The breach has been secured. Our doors can now withstand a grenade attack. I don't think my wife or my five year old boy are a threat.

Re: Jumpseating for real

Jumpseats should belong to pilots. We have enough judgement to fly airplanes, we can decide who we can bring in. Jump seats belong to the owner/operator of the plane. If it's your plane, you decide. If it's your employer's plane, your employer decides. Your employer may be bound by regulation, or p...

Transport Canada is delegating all of their authority to in house safety departments. Those safety departments are supposed to be independent from managements.

It is expected that the new regulations will be published in CG2 by the summer with a two year implementation for 705 and a 4 year implementation for everyone else.

That’s from a March briefing from TC.
2 Years????? What a joke!

Re: Any news on the fatigue regulations recently?

Let's agree on a date when all of the unionized pilots in the country will set the parking brake.

Ok, now you want to talk to us?

Re: Pilot unity

Ok people. The intent was to make a joke. I showed the meme to one of my female pilot friend and she thought it was funny.
Sorry if I offended women pilots, it wasn't the goal.

Re: Pilot unity

For CPPC, I don't think it is a lack of unity from pilots. I think the majority of pilots do not want to be represented by a professional order.

Like it or not, the industry is well organized, they appear to be efficient at voicing their needs at the government and transport canada.

I prefer to view aviation as less of a boys club... speaking of pilot unity and all.
I love flying with women pilots. I don't think there are any issues with having more women joining the club.

Re: Crash at Iles-de-la-Madeleine

The MU shouldn't be allowed single pilot. If a second qualified pilot would have been there, I am sure a go around would have been initated. The passenger-pilot held a Canadian commercial pilot licence (aeroplane), with a class 3 instructor and multi-engine rating. The passenger-pilot's licence was...

Re: Crash at Iles-de-la-Madeleine

He was way too high, way too fast, he wasn't stabilized on the approach path, eventually he slowed down the power to idle, got too slow, kicked back up the throttle and lost control. The pilot was not in control. Wx probably didn't help. The pilot had very little experience on the airplane and didn'...

The amount of shit on the wing of a plane - and it still climbs and flies just fine - will amaze you if you haven't flown "up North" very much. Well I have flown " up North " quite a lot and find that statement to be down right frightening. A lot of low time pilots read these forums and those kinds...

The lack of deicing facility for 705 aircracft in the North is Canada's dirty little secret.
TC is the industry lapdog.
Experience has been balancing for the lack of regulatory oversight for many years.

Why is flying so expensive?

I have been thinking lately, flying has become too expensive in general aviation. Commercial aviation is becoming cheaper and more competitive, owning a piston aircraft means the complete opposite. We have all the high tech technology, glass-cockpits, fancy ipads. Time goes by and jet engines are ch...

Re: Air Transat YOW

That might all be true, and might maybe all be out of Air Transat's control, the fact is they still kept the pax on board for 5-6 hours. Which brings me back to an old question: how long before this becomes an emergency? How long were they going to wait without fuel, without apu? 7 hours? 8? 12? 24...
