Re: DOH merge.

Or maybe AC won't touch anything and let Air Transat like it is and reduce Rouge fleet and give the flight to AT. When people are getting retired from AT they won't replace them and increase Rouge fleet. If there is too much pilots in AT they will ask for volunteer to flow to AC So everyone would b...

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

I'm glad they went to investigate but the company has had 3 weeks to do whatever they want to the aircraft. Due to any possible insurance claims they might have a vested interest in influencing the investigation.

Re: Congrats

There's no grand political conspiracy behind it, no one is orchestrating a plot to keep your tax money here. It's simple supply-and-demand, and you coming home dilutes the supply of pilots without any corresponding increase in demand. Air Canada pilots tried to strike for a better contract and were...

Re: Stowaway in plane's landing gear falls to death as flight approaches Heathrow

I'm surprised there hasn't been more attacks on major European airlines flying into Africa in modern times. The security is essentially zero and the place is crawling with muslim extremists. Air France, BA, Turkish, etc all fly into places way worse than Nairobi too.

Re: 703 to AC?

I’ll pipe in. I came from 703 flying MEDEVAC to AC. I have an aviation diploma. Flew bush 705 for about 1000hrs. Interviewed Oct. and hired in March. I knew my chances we low but I was happy with where I was and in no particular rush. I feel I have been a bit of an anomaly. Knew friends in the insi...

No it's because the market believes the offer will go up. If you don't understand that you shouldn't be playing with so much money.

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

I don't buy it. Max takeoff power is 100% torque and governs at 1700 rpm. Passed 400' and you set climb power, which is 95% torque and 1700 rpm. So essentially, you don't touch the props until you level out for cruise which could be anywhere between 1000-1500 rpm making sure you don't over torque p...

If you landed in YPL and forgot to refuel it looks like you'd have just enough fuel to get to YFH but not much more.

Re: Reading the forums Could Prevent a Disaster like the 737 Max

Just for accuracy's sake, CWE passed on that knowledge after a DC-3 crashed on takeoff with contaminated wings. I'm not saying it's his job to stop pilots from doing dumb things. It would be weird to come on here and just randomly hand out lessons.

Re: NIA 737 MAX told to get lost

So simple minded to have a notice like that apply to aircraft already airborne. It actually makes aviation less safe by forcing a diversion. It shows how out of touch with reality regulators can be.
