Re: Skylink Planes

How many times have I heard skylink going missed off the NDB 06 @ YHM because of the ILS being down, or doing the arc into YSB and holding everyone else up. Probably not as many times as I’ve heard Jazz or Encore going missed at 300 OVC on the ILS, or going all the way to the RNAV on other side of ...

Re: Skylink Planes

Oh boy. You dinosaurs are so set in your ways it's not even funny. Is it possible to do NDB approaches and navigate your entire 14 hour day via VORs? The answer should be yes to anyone that holds a current IFR ticket. Being able to do so proficiently is another story. How many times have I heard sky...

Re: Ornge less than 500 hours

Get a gig flying meat bombs around, or even survey/pipeline. Those should get you to 500 easily before the end of the summer.

Re: Ornge less than 500 hours

Seems like it's the single engine FO minimum for medevacs in Ontario. Twins look for at least 1000 TT with mpic depending on where you go.

The pilots are coming to Jazz or going to AC
Not all of them.

Re: Swoop

Fully agree with you but there could be a couple reasons:

-Living in YHM/YEG and they prefer to keep it that way (even if it means working 20 days a month)
-Easy way to get jet time and go overseas.
-Brain dead

You’d think flying so much one would be at the top of their game.

Hey reading through all the comments I don't see anything about Thunder Air.
Not as good as they used to be. ORNGE or the bear would be better picks.

Re: Seneca - Honours Bachelor of Aviation Technology

The FPR Seneca program is about as close as you can get to being in the RCAF while still being on the civil side of aviation. Professors are very harsh on everything ranging from appearance to academic performance. Some even go as far as judging you by the way you raise your hand in class. The progr...

Re: Perimeter Aviation LP

Kinda scary thinking there is 1500 hour captains most likely with majority instructing time flying a metro into reserves. This is the new norm now in the 703/4 world. Plenty of PC12's, Caravan's, 1900's, and Metros with 1200 hour guys in the left seat and 300 hour guys in the right that play mobile...

Re: Chartright

What happens when the owner sells their aircraft? Are the pilots then transferred to another aircraft that is managed by Chartright or do they get told to go take a hike? What happens with the bond if this is the case?
