Re: Jump Pilot or Aerial Photo Pilot?

Thank you everyone for your replies. I appreciate the feedback. I am definitely happy at my Skydive position however I believe the quality of the flight hours I would get with the aerial photo job would be better which makes this a difficult decision. The Aerial Photo position involves traveling ac...

I just got another job offer for an Aerial Photography pilot position however and I am confused as to whether I shoul...

Re: More grist for the F18 replacement mill..

IMO were better off building a deep water port, or two, and increasing our Arctic fleet significantly. If we really want to protect the Northwest Passage and the Arctic.

But apparently it took a year and a half for AC to get back to her to tell her the tickets were fraudulent? It's the internet, you have to be cautious, but if I...

Re: 737 Max 8 Simulators

The PNF slides his seat back and uses the bottom of his foot to stop the wheel. That’s how I was trained. The stab trim also stops for 5 seconds after 10 seconds of MCAS burst. So during this maelstrom of misinformation and fighting for control of the aircraft the PNF just slides his/her seat back,...

Re: ATPL as a requirement

With the AC flow through, mostly captains, coupled with the fact jazz hires sub 1000 hour no ATPL pilots, it will eventually catch up to them.

Hi,

Just wondering if they ask you to have your ATPL written prior to being invited for an interview or being granted a GS date?

Can they live with us having the IATRA for a few months?
Lol. I'd say at least 300-400 FOs don't have their ATPL. You good.
