Re: Socialized Bidding (Rouge)

ACPA gave the 737 pilots a raise. Are you fucking kidding me??! They haven’t flown in a year, but let’s “ensure their wages are protected.” Meanwhile our flat pay colleagues are hung out to dry, especially those on the 320. Even though that’s the fleet picking up all the slack. We’re in a big staff...

Re: will AC take non ac express pilots?

Why would a CRJ/175 CA not be qualified to sit in the right seat of a WB? Because of their competencies: when you fly WB you loose your flying skills; it’s easy flying and you perform 2 ILS aproaches and 2 landings per month: you don’t know how to fly an aircraft anymore. It’s a great strategic dec...

Re: looking for Air Canada pilot directory

Schools have no problem letting people know who their staff are. Also, many people advertise themselves as employees of different places. I fail to see a privacy problem with this.

I am looking for Air Canada pilot directory online. Also, I wonder if there is any online resource where I can search retired Air Canada pilots.
I hope that doesn't exist. There is an expectation of privacy in Canada.

Re: Atlas Air 767

That's interesting to see. AC SOP for stall recovery is AP/AT OFF, lower the nose to break the stall before increasing thrust. The logic was that with the massive under slung engines, increasing the thrust exacerbates the nose high pitch so they wanted to esure the wing was flying first. This techni...

Re: Cameras in the cockpit...

Two pairs of inexperienced pilots failed to recognize the symptoms of a trim runway (Essentially). In one case after disabling it, they re-engaged it, because they couldn't manage without an autopilot on a vfr day. It is really frightening to find out that there are so many airlines killing their p...

I agree that all Canadian pilots need to work together for the collective good - that was supposed to be the purpose of the Canadian College of Professional Pilots.

If they want them back they'll have to negotiate it along with their salary demands. I don't think that the airlines in Canada would be able to get away with it.
