Re: Well that didn’t take long for Swoop FA’s to unionize

(Frequent ) Pax view. Appreciate almost all FA's. Most are very good, professional with safety, and do an at times demanding service job in ever more confined and crowded aircraft. I wouldn't want to do it, thanks. I'm also currently in the oncology world with family. Dealt with a lot of nurses, for...

Re: Airbus to rename the C Series...disgusting.

What happened rookie? Why did you edit your post, and get rid of your incredulous comment? Why is it so hard for you to believe some people acted upon the opportunity back then? The Boeing chart sure does look good, but I've made double with BBD, than I would have with BA over the same time period....

For those slagging Bombardier management, and how incompetent they are at their jobs, my 99 cent BBD-B shares just hit $5.45 and continues to climb.

You know what. You're right, in a manner of speaking. I apologize to you and the board as well.

Re: Running out of fuel.

What do you do? Try the zero zero, (if that's the scenario) as one poster I know would advocate? Or try for the only other alternate? There were two times during my flying career when I had to make the decision to land zero/zero. The first was due to the weather going zero zero and no sign of it ha...

Re: Running out of fuel.

Fine. Here's one. You arrive at remote alternate # 1, and find it's zero / zero, or the only, short runway is completely blocked by a just prior incident. Hours to clear. You are marginal on fuel to alternate #2. Terrain below is extremely nasty, + maybe hard IMC, except around alternate #2. What do...

According to your correspondent, this was a professional flight. Gulfstreams are GA, so are Boeing business jets. Not sure what GA has to do with not managing your fuel system right being ok.

Are you all having fun tossing out the speculation? Two adults, a teenage girl and a toddler. Maybe not full fuel. But dont let that stop anyone from pilloring a deceased pilot flying “hot and heavy” For the life of me I will never understand what possesses people to “speculate” with every random t...

I flew into Sechelt on Wednesday and landed and departed on 29 in a 172. There was no wind but I still felt some windshear over those trees on the rising terrain. My camera was set to the wrong settings, but here is what i filmed https://www.dropbox.com/s/0dfbdx33zm1w868/Untitled.mov?dl=0 That look...

Re: Free Money Management Advice.

Most "investors" are really just gamblers who brag about their wins and are strangely silent about their losses. True investing is boring, slow, with a managed amount of risk and not that apparently lucrative in the short-term. And most truly wealthy people - not the ones who APPEAR wealthy - you'l...

Re: Free Money Management Advice.

Jerry,

I've offered an alternative which is a more defensive choice. Buy used for $9-10,000?

Apart from that, (you can borrow to invest) how do you know you will make 10% per year? Or any positive return?

Just asking.

Re: Free Money Management Advice.

This is key: The cost of money. The ominous "debt" can actually be a great tool. For example. If you have $20,000 saved up to buy a car and the current financing offer is 0% for 84 months. It's a great idea. Provided the $20,000 is invested elsewhere. Always say yes to free money! [/quote] Disagree...
