Re: P-3 or CP-140?

I wonder if pilots said they were flying a CF-188 if anyone would know what they are talking about.

Re: AC application post-secondary question

Please don't put things I didn't say in quotation marks. I've flown with plenty of very smart and proficient pilots that did their training privately. Nothing wrong with that. I've never flown with someone that did a 3 year aviation diploma that wasn't proficient though. So Air Canada saves themselv...

Re: AC application post-secondary question

I definitely would not lie on my application about something so obvious. Nobody is going to believe you misread the question and even if you did that reflects poorly on you for not being able to read a simple question. So at best you're stupid and at worst you're a liar. There will be a pilot in you...

Re: Russia's 4th Richest Woman Killed In Freak Private Jet Crash

Smart businesswoman saved money on a single engine airplane and a single (probably) less experienced pilot to fly it. A ruble saved is a ruble earned.

Re: Air Canada grounds Boeing Max 8s until at least July 1

Ironically everyone is going to bid off it as soon as it's not free money, ruining the whole plan. Because imagine how annoying it will be to explain to people you're a MAX pilot for the next few years. "Oooooh."

Re: Twin otter on the ice

No matter where you are there is someone more experienced. We used to cringe at the float operators when they showed up in the spring but by the end of the summer they were always up to speed. The MNR guys never seem to make it since they spend most of the summer sitting on alert. It's just a matter...

Re: 737 max

Here's a question, why would you design an airplane where the control wheel forces are too large to overcome even at full nose down trim and full forward C of G? These are hydraulically powered surfaces so you don't need cables and pulleys galore. Just turn up the hydraulic pressure.

Re: Air Canada grounds Boeing Max 8s until at least July 1

Setting a date of July 1 makes me hopeful the company will pay 737 crews until that date. I imagine there will be a hiring freeze as retraining current pilots will be the priority. I don't see this type regaing airworthiness any time soon.

Reminds me of that bridge that started oscillating and broke apart in terms of absolute engineering failures. Step back from the drafting table or computer and think about the real world for once. You cost people their lives and hope you answer for that.

Re: 737 max

Are any of the Airbus narrow bodies ETOPS certified? Or is it just 777, 787, 767, 330 now that can do Hawaii (and St. Johns to London)? Can Rouge 767's be switched to Hawaii and narrowbody Airbus cover their South America flying?

Re: 737 max

I'm sure you're not going to have an enjoyable free time knowing your fleet is grounded and have no idea when it will be back. Make sure that equipment bid is up to date and for a fleet at your base that you can hold unless you want to move.

I know guys have been hired off twin otter float/wheel/ski jobs into AC, but I think you're a long long shot going direct from a single engine vfr float operation... It's probably happened at some point, but not recently AFAIK. Ya that's fair. I guess when I say predominantly bush I mean a 50/50'is...
