Re: Why sault college is not a great option

Exactly.

Can't understand why someone would prefer to put themselves $50 000 in the hole with a five yr prospect of grossing $30 000/yr if you're lucky.

The bigger question IMO is why tax payers continue to subsidize training when there are plenty of people willing to finance it themselves?

Re: Did you ever sign a training bond or buy a PPC?

If training bonds were really legal the gumitup would be doing them. Guess what? They ain't.
The military requires x number of years of mandatory service following training. Same premise I think.

Re: Vintage Wings of Canada Kittyhawk flies in New Zealand

Wouldn't worry about the Cdn govt. getting their jocks in a knot seeing as they can justify repeatedly sending completely empty VIP Challenger jets on trans-Atlantic flights for training purposes. The money is being spent..it's just whether or not there is publicity around how it is done. Somehow t...

Re: CF-18s intercepted plane on eve of Obama visit

The article says the fighters were "scrambled to intercept a snooping Russian bomber". That seems a little dramatic considering the Russians notify the Canadian government prior to the event. Good for the defence industry I suppose.
