Re: VIDEO - Aftermath of Hero Pilot Narrowly Avoided Crashing into the School

@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. There are no new lessons to be learned, only lessons to be re-taught because folks didn't clue in, or missed the cla...

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...

AC sells 9 Max

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...

Re: Returning From the US

Don't overthink it. You're not a tourist, you're acting in the course of your employment as a pilot. That is correct, but, it does NOT apply to the folks in the back. What do you mean? Pilots in the back are also exempt. The folks riding in the back of a corp jet are not typically pilots, they are ...

Actually AT LEAST 2 centuries ago.
In fact, the E6B in it's current form was developed in the 30's. So the wiz wheel is between 80 and 90 years old, a far cry from 2 centuries.

Re: Liberals may target the Transportation sector with very hefty Carbon taxes.

I personally am okay with the idea that if I make a mess that I should help clean it up, so a carbon tax seems like a soft approach When the first round of pandemic help was announced, a huge chunk of cash was directed to cleaning up abandoned wells in Alberta. That money needs to come from somewhe...

Re: Westjet mask policy

If I was running an airline, I would let people choose for themselves. If they want to wear a mask, then just wear it. If they don't want to, then they shouldn't be forced to. I wouldn't tolerate the "mask police", they will get kicked off my my flight with no refund policy. My message to the mask ...
