They aren't wrong. They'd clear you to depart and you'd still be waiting on the back end. I'm sure that'd go over great in yul or yyz. :lol:

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

I see no reason not to do a CDA approach, even with an engine out. I would hold off on flaps until established final after completing the circling maneuver. The reason being is that you want to be certain that you will be able to level off at minimums, especially if you are circling. exactly, circl...

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

I am curious on how they teach a RNAV approach especially LNAV. Off course with LPV/WAAS or ILS, you have the glide slope and an auto-pilot, so no worry there. See my attached file for RNAV RWY 10 for example. I heard instructors there wanted students to descent from whatever the top of descent (TO...

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

Cornwall teaches to the test, you will learn how to pass the ride, (with their in house examiner), but not much more. They are a cheap way to get the sticker for your Aviation Document Booklet, but not much else. The quality of your training is going to depend more on the instructor than it will on...

Re: Seeking Captains to fly in Asia

One of my acquaintances does this, makes 30k a pilot recruiting around the world, depending on the region.

Kind of a pyramid scheme, they work around the company recruitment and act as your agent instead of you contacting the company direct.

Wait till we have to train people how to be adults per 703.98 of the new duty regs.
We have to define suitable accommodation so that companies can't make us sleep in a shed, detailing proper fatigue management isn't unreasonable.

Maintenance needs their fatigue rules as well. No argument from me. I can't fight everybody's battles though. I'm celebrating that pilots now have something that pulls us out of the 3rd world!

And you'll release the aircraft back to service after you "buff that out"? I expect that Air Canada will assure a proper proper repair.

Re: Another ATAC effort.... aka sidestep.

Its just the typical action=reaction system that happens when things are out of control. Operators, on the flip side are saying that many young 20s pilots would just bail from the KingAir or 1900 to drive 320 or 737 no matter how much you pay them. How to protect that investment in training these d...

Don't fly if you're unfit to fly. It's that simple.
There IS a problem. Transport admits it. Science proves it. Why are you so blinded?
Just as in denial as management that's why. It's legal now, so if you're fatigued that's your problem.

I'd say all three are pretty comparable. Picking one category like pay might put one above another, however each have different benefits and disadvantages. Jazz pays well, and has a PML to Mainline. Encore has a top notch commuting policy and gaurenteed flow. Porter probably pays the best for a Q, ...

The reason it's still low is that ...
