Re: How much does it cost to run AvCanada?

There is a simple solution. Instead of coming on here and whining, get off the website for a month. Check back, and if things are still not to your liking, take another month... As long as people are still checking in, there will be no change due to whining. I would expect they monitor traffic close...

NWO Can you post your personal balance sheet? Lets have a look and see how you are doing. I find it unbelievable that you have the gaul to request to see AvCanada books.

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Really? You have to read about a tragic end for seven people to learn not to take off or fly in bad weather? To learn that night VFR has some hidden hazards? Not to fly over gross? Or maybe it is all about reminding people that these are important things a pilot should actually know (without being r...

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Great. Lets discuss whether low time pilots should depart into poor weather. And what can be done to help them make good decisions. My previous point was two fold: 1. I do not think we have to do this after a recent tragedy. And , without facts, stating things like the pilot took off in deterioratin...

Re: Seneca College Airline Pilot Flight Operations Diploma

I don’t think anyone doubts that advanced education is necessarily the end all, be all.Advanced education does indicate that a person can study, gain knowledge, and has self discipline. University is not about being smart. It is about applying oneself. Smarts alone won’t cut it for very long ( and o...

Re: Seneca College Airline Pilot Flight Operations Diploma

L39 Guy. I have read and reread all your posts on this thread. The sense I get is you are really, really promoting this program. And in a very well written way. So well written, in fact, that I can understand why people think you are not as advertised, and have some self interest in this program. Wh...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

If you believe that guaranteed job in a downturn, you might want to review seniority numbers, furloughs, and the options an employer has with regard to bonds. The whole bond thing puzzles me. Jazz has nothing invested in hiring these pilots, so other than initial training costs to an already rated p...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

There was a program a few years back to train career FOs. Anybody know how that is working, or worked out? IIRC it was called a multi crew license or something along those lines.

I am not entirely certain this has been well thought out. And why would they be chained to Jazz for five years?

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

I have to wonder how big the pool is of diploma/degree graduates who have and want to pay $126k for a job.

Some solid pre program research? Or just some board room high fiving what they see as a great plan.

Photo. Just to play devils advocate here. I someone should go and get a class 3 medical ( under age 40). . Their license would show they hold a class 3.

As an aside, if or when you decide to only fly for leisure, and you only ASK for a Cat 3, and are issued a cat 3 , the good folks at TC will demand return of your ATPL or CPL.... If your cat 1 expires, no issue at all. So if you hold an ATPL or a CPL, and only fly for leisure, renew your Cat 1, and ...

In 50 plus years of flying I have never ever heard anyone, (while flying, ) say, push the nose up.
