Re: Odd call sign?

You can edit your callsign using ADS-B on most units I believe. This is most likely ome of those cases.

Skynorth BE20 ads

So what are these guys actually paying?

I recall seeing ads for the 200 a year ago saying that they started the captains at 72k.

Now they're not outright saying what they pay, but some of their captains have made $120k-$140k.

Just wondering if anyone really knows what the deal is?

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

The ad probably has to do more with the pay and morale, than the accident.

Re: Northern Air Carriers Feeling the Pinch.

"Adapt or die" They are. Boeing has announced they will be testing self flying planes this summer.
