Anyone else listen to the ATC tape? He declared a mayday stating he was having control issues. Never heard anything about an engine failure.

Re: What's happening to the 'buses

I can't tell if you are 4 serious or not?

Some 319's are at Rouge, 737's are on order for Mainline. Those are the only concrete facts out there. Everything else you hear is a rumour.

Re: Engine preheat idea

In any really cold weather, those heaters can't heat squat. In the elements, it would be a fire hazard (If you look at the manual for most of those heaters, they say not to use below -10 (Or was it -20?). Good idea, if you found a proper heater.

Re: Living in hotel rooms

Not exactly sure on the hunting season's. But if you have time, maybe pick up a firearms license. 7F brings in tons of hunters for the Caribou season up there but it may be closer to the fall. I bet you can't find a better time killer then that! Might have to make some friends to get around though!

First Year T4, half on the new pay, half on the old pay was $46000 as EMB F/O. A class members flying as an RP was just shy of $50000. Tack on $5-8000 in per diems, and that is what you can expect.

Ego is the biggest reason. Hands on flying if you haven't done enough already. I moved from an F/O position with the company backwards to an RP position. I miss the flying, but I have way too many hobbies to fly and enjoy them all. Sorry, lifestyle over ego wins this race. That is until I get a fami...

Re: Resolute First Air plane crash lawsuits filed in Iqaluit

Very glad to see this happening. I don't care who wins, but I was also afraid the military impact would not see the light of day. It was a gong show up there for a week prior, due to this so called "controlled airspace". Did it cause an accident, no. Contributing factor, it's possible.

They are definitely going through some difficulties, but I am sure they will be ironed out with time.
