Re: 2004 Pelee Island Georgian Express Van crash now in court

I believe this crash is the main reason 703 and 704 ops have to use the ridiculous segmented weights formula based on the number of seats on the aircraft type certificate and the ratio of females to males instead of the standard weights used in 705 that the rest of the industry used to be able to us...

Re: Do you need a valid ppc to ferry aircraft?

The old license format used to be more descriptive and indicative of what you could do with it. My CPL from 2000 said "All single pilot non high performance, single and multi engine land aeroplanes..." Provided you aren't carrying paying pax you can fly all single engine non high performance aeropla...

From what I've been told, if you applied to Swoop and it's been 3 days and they haven't called you, something went wrong with your application.

Looks like new aircraft livery will be released today after shareholders votes with the "Operated by/Exploité par Air Canada" showing on side fuselage. :wink:
So the fuselage is bilingual, has 'Lever' been added to the seatbelts yet?

Re: 2020 Hiring

I still think Swoop is the logical place to move the 67's as they get phased out of mainline with more 87's coming. Do you want to give Rouge a run for their money or not?

Still a good gig but there have been a few small changes away from that in the past few years.

I've seen them for contract pilots, but they were both companies at the same airport (YYC). A RAIC is...

Re: ILS question

I'm not sure ILS approaches are optimized for circling. It all depends where you are on the approach when you reach MDA, and commence circling. For some reason in my mind, an ILS would put you too close to the threshold but I may be visualizing it wrong. As long as you break off the approach once yo...

I've been told that they actually like it, if at the interview, you admit that you have looked for information on them but couldn't find any. It's sort of their thing.
