Re: DC-3 / C-46 Ramp Slave

Hi Cat, However somehow I did manage to fly a fairly large number of aircraft and did not ever wreck one or kill anyone, especially myself. Excellent! Do you think a pilot that is trained with all the modern technology and methods can hope to have a spotless record like yours? Or is this privilege o...

Re: DC-3 / C-46 Ramp Slave

Loner,
Attitude! Mister, attitude!
A good attitude will definitely set you down the right path. That being said, do pilots that take the ramp route have better attitude than ones that don't?

Re: DC-3 / C-46 Ramp Slave

Hi C.W.E, Starting a career as a FO with Buffalo is a great way to learn the flying skills that will prepare you for a future in flying. Do you mean this as a blanket statement of any company, or Buffalo in specific? If it's the later, what makes Buffalo Air so special? What will you learn there, th...

Re: Airbus to rename the C Series...disgusting.

Now you're just taking a piss rookie. They sure don't brag like kids in junior high school, that's for sure. You're right, they're worse. You think a pilots ego is bad? Try meeting one of those guys. Unfortunately, you strike me as the type that would be pissing on someone for having the good fortun...

Re: Airbus to rename the C Series...disgusting.

What exactly does the board have to do with you not believe people bought into BBD at its lowest. I'm new here so there must be something I'm missing. >That's just me. Anyone can claim anything in hindsight. I give that stuff zero respect and it adds no value to any discussion. The only thing I clai...

Re: Airbus to rename the C Series...disgusting.

What happened rookie? Why did you edit your post, and get rid of your incredulous comment? Why is it so hard for you to believe some people acted upon the opportunity back then? The Boeing chart sure does look good, but I've made double with BBD, than I would have with BA over the same time period. ...

It's amazing how many claim here to have loaded up on BBD below a buck. Just amazing.

Re: Thunder Airlines

leftoftrack, You're absolutely right. It surprises me how pilot are just gobbling up these bonuses like it's a game changer. The salaries are what needs to go up. Pilot should call up their bank and ask if they can put bonuses as part of the income when applying for a mortgage, their answer may surp...

Re: Airbus to rename the C Series...disgusting.

Congratulations Gino!!

I'm on the same boat, although I did manage to scoop them below .90 cents a share. I sure regret not buying more. I know I know, hindsight and all.

Re: Morningstar

schnitzel, I'm wondering if WJ will keep on taking OTS guys, or is every WJ/Swoop opening going to be filled from encore once the CBA is finalized? I guess we shall see when the agreement is in place. Xonga, I'm sorry to say I couldn't tell you exactly what they are looking for, as I am not part of ...

Re: Morningstar

schnitzel, exactly! I agree that the majors win any sort of comparison, and the gap just gets worse as time goes on and seniority is built. But compared to any of the regionals, well, no comparison as you mentioned. I guess the only real reason remaining to take a regional job is, if you're gunning ...

Re: Morningstar

I should also mention that the bonuses takes the pilots all the way to the end of the CBA. Essentially, it is an extra $1000 a month from now on, until the end of the current CBA in 2020.

Re: Morningstar

While I agree that the current pay-scales are well below what they should be, specially on the 757 side of thing. Lets remember that it is miles ahead of any of the regionals. So if pilots are crawling over each other to get to the mighty Q or RJ, they shouldn't be bashing Morningstar pay. The pilot...
