Re: Didn't pass Cat 1 medical, what is going to happen next..?

Another good idea I just remembered is to take your urine sample midstream. That means start urinating, stop, get your cup in place and get a large enough sample, stop, and finish going into the toilet. The urine midstream should be least contaminated with anything in your urethra or bladder. Also, ...

Decent places to live in Vancouver area near transit to YVR?

Will be new to Vancouver and as the title says looking for an okay neighborhood with walking distance amenities and relatively quick access to YVR. Would like to have access to a large park or the waterfront. I was looking at Yaletown and Richmond but I really have no idea what those places are like...

Re: Didn't pass Cat 1 medical, what is going to happen next..?

I'm not sure if TC was involved or not but the doctor told me to abstain from sex for a few days and come back and give another sample. I did and passed with no problem. According to Google it's quite a common cause of protein in urine. I think you're likely fine. Talk to your doctor about it.

Re: Didn't pass Cat 1 medical, what is going to happen next..?

Just take the test again and abstain from orgasm for a few days before. Same thing happened to me before. It's very likely that that is the cause.

Looks like it melted off. That shaft is glowing hot with 400kt wind blowing on it. Oil problem maybe? Lucky it didn't catch on fire.

There’s a lot of senior Sunwing pilots on this last PIT course.
Probably a wise idea. With Transat and AC combining forces and WestJet getting a cash injection Sunwing is going to be facing stiff competition.

Re: Careful getting fuel in Thunder Bay

Does anyone know if they charge the air force the same fees? They get a lot of military trainers coming through so they might be doing this to gouge the government who will pay anything without batting an eye. Like the $600 hammer. Another idea is they know airplanes passing through YQT are crossing...

September Is there a date set yet? That makes it hard to plan for the big upcoming equipment bid at AC. For the company and the pilots.

Air Transat and Transat brands to be maintained to complement the Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Vacations brands. Interesting point there, so the Transat brand will still be around. Does this mean the pilots will be integrated or remain separate as well? Here comes that C-scale. I won...

Re: How much is the new pension worth?

I think I understand what you are saying. If I personally contribute $2900/month to an RRSP I get a tax refund for that which lowers the overall cost. Is that what you mean?
