Re: Lion Air 737 MAX 8 Crashes in Indoesia

These vapor and nausea thing on a 737 is the consequence of overfilling the hydraulic B reservoir its always been an issue but it could be a sign that maintenance were topping up hydraulics as tech log showed differential pressure caution light a few days before.

I guess it doesn’t matter who does the cleaning. No one is doing it well.
In fact in does matter as these long cleaning hours spent by the crews are taken away from flight preparation so its a bloody safety issue, its a latent threat that is yet to say its name.

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

When I wrote the exams for the ATPL the answers were all hand written and were marked based on what you actually knew as shown in your hand written answers, in today's world you have the multiple choice crutch to help you. Here is the airplane that was used in the exam. http://www.flugzeuginfo.net/...

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

If you think that a 737 Captain or First Officer should clean planes, you need to travel a bit more and see the world. Get that 703 mentality or whatever PTSD you may be experiencing due to your previous abuse as a small time pilot and get in line with the rest of the world. Spare me the "What abou...

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

I do it where I work and it's not SOP. I also do it as a passenger on other airlines. I just like getting my hand in dark, deep, (sometimes moist) places and pulling out surprises. Try it. I respect your opinion but doing it because you want to is something and doing it because its part of your job...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

This is only 3k above the previous salary for the past five years. The big jump is 1500 TT no jet. For a wide body. It was 4000 TT 1000 Jet. So really just a lowering of requirements. How many CDN air carriers are offering $70k or more to a new-hire FO? As mentioned, cargojet has been doing it for ...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

Are you current on a type that is in demand? If so, apply early as the recruitment process can take six months or more. When you say "warmer places than Canada" make sure you can tolerate it when it feels like mid 50s C. Budget $15000-17000 USD per kid per year for school. Rent will well exceed you...
