Re: Solidarity

Tell us how this sounds. You are not in the 10% of pilots you described as selfish. You want the other 90% to come together as a unit and take away from the ten percenters because you damn well just want your fair share...and they are selfish. That sound about right? Maybe you don’t see the irony in...

Re: Are recently laid off pilots hireable

I think a better question to ask first would be how many jobs are we talking about? A few thousand laid off pilots...how many jobs! A few dozen maybe. The second thing is that we are really not talking about a lot of 10000 hour captains being laid off. Some will have taken early retirement or volunt...

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

Just an aside. If everyone really wants this to end as quickly as possible, go home and stay there. It seems some people dont think it will hurt them, and don’t seem to give a rat’s p’tootie if they catch it and pass it onto others who it will hurt. The danger of this virus is that it is very infect...

Re: have you parked your saving in cash to ride..

One of the big issues is that those that bought on margin are getting margin calls and have no choice but to sell causing a quick drop and emotional panic. When it all shakes out stocks will come back again. Some stocks up 10% today. Folks that bought this morning and sold this afternoon would have ...

Re: Realistic timeline for first regional job in 2020?

AirCanada, I expect, will soon be doing the same. Its going to delay the aspirations of a few. The best bet is to work towards your goal....

They are not being reduced at all. Why aren’t any of you mentioning this? If oil was free , you would...

I think that soon we will almost seethe end of unstructured, part time flight training. It simply is not efficient. Some US schools have excellent programs for retaining quality flight instruction. Perhaps some of the larger Canadian schools will eventually follow suit, although our variable weather...

Re: Flight Instructors - What is important?

Honestly, I dont think pay and schedule are going to make any difference when it comes to retention. There are just to many instructors who are there to get the hours for the resume. Now, as far as the students go, an instructor that has been properly mentored and supervised as a class 4, is paid de...

To clarify...It is not illegal in the 705 world. The CARs which the OP looked up refer only to take off, landing, and the balance of the flight at the Captain’s discretion. The airlines make a lot of things appear to be what they are not, though this policy, I understand did not originate in their D...

Re: summit air (pilot in waiting)

Per year or per month? The math only makes sense if it's $500 per month assuming the company spends in excess of $10k or more to get you those ratings.
I think what the poster was referring to is the number of hours flying a year!

Re: Waiting on my medical from TC - to start or not to start flight training?

Does TC really have a limit on alcohol? I did always wonder about the “ units” question on medicals. At first blush you sound way to honest to be a pilot. And I think it may have been the first time your medical examiner had ever seen a pilot declare he drank and smoked so much. Seriously, if your b...

Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

I don’t see any connection at all between gender and competence. There are good and poor pilots of both genders. The thing that caught my attention was the comments regarding float training for a pilot with a lot of time on type. That is not a gender issue. But it certainly could well be a managemen...
