Re: Missing aircraft near Langley BC

Does that mean that every IFR frequency into Vancouver hears this statement and if some helicopter was bussing around for fun for 20 minutes, that those frequencies would be blocked up with continuous 'Wires' transmissions? Here is a description of the system https://www.aviationpros.com/home/news/...

Only on AvCanada. Why wait for any information as to why this plane came down, lets have a poll and we can all vote on it.

Re: VIDEO: V Tail Bonanza flips over on landing

More folks on youtube re-running years old stuff to try start racking up views. Put todays date on years old stuff, fool folks into thinking its new.

Re: VIDEO: Piper Malibu Slides Off the Runway during Landing

That is Courchevel. Runway is 537 meters long with an 18% grade. Well known one way strip. Lots of videos online from that strip. Not as many as Lukla, but it's basically the same thing in the Alps rather than the Himalayas. Arrive high and/or hot, you go off the end, except the end is a wall.

Re: "COVID pricing" for aircraft sales?

I don't think its that these aircraft are worth more, its just that your dollars are worth less. I don't see this improving any time soon, it usually only gets worse. 2x4x8 lumber was up at 7 bucks a piece this summer. Do you think we will ever see 3 dollar 2x4's like they were a year ago? Probably...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Harper brought the deficit down to zero even including the great recession(and a cut to GST). This is one of those things, if you say it enough times then folks will start to believe it. When Harper was elected in 2006 federal government had a balanced budget inherited from the Martin government an...

Re: Air Canada Second Trip to C.C.A.A.?

Revenue recovery is the key. Get out your crystal ball to estimate when and by how much. There is also the issue of yields, if it is just the low margin leisure segment that recovers first. Barring refunds happening, then the majority of the leisure travel in 2021 will not produce revenue, just usi...

It's NOT their own cash, it's money they have hi-jacked from the customer base, turned a holiday ticket into an interest free loan in the form of a travel credit, many of which will likely expire before folks have an opportunity to use it.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Updated Purchase Price at $5 per share

Air Canada floated a billion dollar share offering today. The day after that closes, expect an announcement about refunds, then later the same day, government will approve the transaction.

Re: Air Canada Second Trip to C.C.A.A.?

AC went to market today to solicit $850MM from a share offering. If the 15% oversubscription is converted, the proceeds will be just under $1B. More dilution of the share base to keep the company afloat. That's the way it should be, shareholders take the haircut from a downturn, dont offload it on ...

Re: How rusty do you feel you're going to be?

It does present a safety issue and risk to public safety. Or is it an "elephant in the room" type question to bring up to the flying public? There is no risk, and no elephant in the room on this subject. Just go look at the company operations manual, it's well stated in there. It may be d...

@photofly, Are you saying there is nothing to learn from this incident? There are no new ways to damage / crash an airplane. Every one that happens these days, has been tried before.

Re: Air Canada is in bad shape

You know it's bad when they're offering a nice cabin to the commoners. It's an admission that the loads on those routes will be light, so instead of clocking the cycles and hours onto the higher capacity airframes, they are going to get some utilization of the lower capacity machines, hopefully pos...

An interesting strategy. Sold 9 of the max to leasing companies, and kept them with long term lease.

Re: The personal log book thing.

But what about the fact that recency is a rolling gate of your last N flights/hours? If you fly multiple aircraft, how do you show recency if you only have the log for the aircraft you're in at the time? You are confusing 'most recent' with 'recency requirements'. It is now September. If I have pap...
