Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

Those on the ultra right should be celebrating.

Another factor of identity politics.......... GONE!!

Oh yeah, that’s right. They love identity politics. Whether it was putting coloured signs on drinking fountains or gold stars on chosen people or just old fashioned gay bashing in the literal sense.

Re: Recession incoming

The real question to ask is why these people who think it’s so much better everywhere else live in Canada? Why do people who have lived in other better nations choose to live here? Why are there so many European immigrants in Canada who left Europe and have absolutely no desire to go back?

Re: "it's just good airmanship"

There’s two times I say it.

One is after explaining to a pilot who didn’t know.

The other is after not explaining it to a pilot who should have known better.

Re: B1900 or flight instruction?

Here is a likely a very unpopular opinion but you are not qualified to teach with that amount of time even though TC says you are. The only option is to go to the right seat and learn. You’re right. It is unpopular. By the time you’re an instructor you’ve been taught it twice and taught to teach it...

Re: what if one engine fails on twin engined piston aircraft

"Zero thrust" settings are usually a bit liberal since the instructor or check pilot doesn't want to die. Have you ever flown a multi engine aircraft? A simulated engine failure is NEGATIVE thrust. With everything hanging out in some circumstances. It’s only after they’ve accelerated to blue line, ...

Re: Looking for Qikiqtarjuaq weather advice from locals

Because almost universally local knowledge trumps what some eggheads in a met office thousands of miles away know.

Just look at almost every Amended TAF issued. The locals likely didn’t trust the first one and planned accordingly. I know I do.

How was the OP positive when you look at the title of this thread? It says it all.
