Re: Air Transat YOW

If someone HAD opened the door and deployed the slide, I'm curious what would the consequences of that have been (besides a round of applause from the rest of the pax)? Arrest with charges dropped? Black flag on your name with CBSA?

The Westjet RNPs are proprietary yes, but secret? No. If you can get your hands on an RCAP (Restricted Canada Air Pilot) CD you can find them all on there.

your stupidy for not taking home what you "purchased". Again as far as I'm concerned....it's your money....use it.
Apparently what you fail to realize little one is that if you stay in aviation you'll have ample opportunity to draw from it for legit reasons when you get your first pink slip.

This is such an inappropriate use of public funds! There are too many pilots as it is.

I think it depends if the tower needs you off the runway or not. If you don't have a bus coming up your ass then I'd plan the normal approach and keep it about 5 feet off for as long as safely able for the simple reason that it's FUN and promotes your own awareness of how the a/c behaves in ground e...

Been there done that... the cost of tickets is the least of your worries. Just wait till your insurance company catches up with them. I got called in for an interview by MOT as I got 3 in 6 months. It took 3 years of clean driving to get my insurance to drop to where it was before the tix. Good luck.
