Re: Hockey Teams Travelling

Do you have much time for socializing with the players ? Does each time charter its own Air Canada Jetz plane? Cause I notice on the canucks photos there are canucks logos on the seats. I am assuming you don't go through changing the logos as every team boards? Also, what kind of crew gets to fly t...

Re: Airbus A320 on test flight crashed into sea . . .

I guess they are "enthusiastic" about aviation and they love getting mentioned in the media about something they have no clue about!

Re: Hockey Teams Travelling

It depends on the team. Some rich owner's have their own jets (Red Wings, Blue Jacket). Some teams charter a sport team aircraft like Sky King, Jetz(Air Canada) or some teams will charter any airline. I did fly Colorado Avalanche from Vancouver to Edmonton then Calgary last week. We have flown sever...

Re: Passenger threatens pilot during flight to Yellowknife

That's not so bad. My buddy use to fly air taxi up and down the Mackenzie in a single engine Cessna years ago. A guy from the back seat pulls a knife on him because he would not land at Wrigley because of fog. The two other guys on board who were friends of the guy with the knife grab him and choke ...

Re: The TC price of breaking the approach ban, hitting a fence

That reg from the cap gen is only for general aviation. For commercial operators the RVR rules, regardless of the ground vis. The only way you can ignore the RVR is if it is fluctuating above and below limits. Or you could shoot an approach on a different runway (one without an RVR). Just to make i...

Re: Fort McMurray area airports - Question

ATC will not clear you for an approach to an airport in uncontrolled airspace such as CYNR. What they will do is clear you out of controlled airspace in the vicinity of that airport. You can advise them of your approach so then can accommodate you for the arrival fix. You can also close your flight ...

Re: Where do you even start?

Start with a companies like Sunwest or North Cariboo. Even if you start on a Metro/Kingair/1900's you can eventually move to other aircraft. Once you have some time on a Lear or Citation then start talking and investigating the corporate flight departments you would like to work at. Let them get to ...
