Re: Laser Eye Surgery

The Canadian Forces now allow pilots to have certain types of laser-eye surgery, as long as the correction brings them up to an acceptable standard. The CF will not cover the cost (yet) but there is no restriction on types flown (ie, you can still fly fighters with zapped eyes) which would lead me t...

Re: Search planes to be replaced in 2014

I was under the impression that the replacement for the Twin Otters and Buffalos was gonna be a single air frame hence the 15 aircraft order and the fight between the C-27 and the C222. I've always wondered about using 415s however with no ramp to load pallets how useful in other roles would it be?...

Yeah, I'm not sure if the plan is to fly to the regional, or if there is an eventual intention to build a terminal on the base.

Are there any small airlines out of Calgary?
