Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

I always thought it hilarious when training aircraft would announce they’re conducting the “simulated RNAV approach.” What the hell a simulated RNAV? You’re doing the RNAV approach, in real life, not in a simulator. Who cares if the weather is VMC? Call it what it is. The day I have a delay in my c...

Duty regs extentions

We spoke about it in another post. Why governments are still extending the implementation of the new duty regs while the shortage of pilot is virtually over for the next 3 years? Shouldn’t we request from our unions and lobbyists to push for a rapid implementation and bring back more colleagues to w...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

3rd quarter is estimated to be a 25% total capacity vs 2019 Q3. Still about 10% for Q2.

How many furloughs does this mean or does it mean no more hiring for a while?

How many years on the pilot list will it go back?
On the other side, no more excuses to not respect the new duty regs rapidly.

Hi,

Just wondering if they ask you to have your ATPL written prior to being invited for an interview or being granted a GS date?

Can they live with us having the IATRA for a few months?
