Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Did it occur to you that they may be arriving over higher terrain and approaching downhill? So, a 1000 foot call by a RAD ALT might not be 1000 feet above the touch down zone elevation? Your stabilized approach criteria are not the rest of the worlds stabilized approach criteria. I suggest you see y...

Re: Tim Croyle to retire from WestJet

Hey?! Don't the employees need to give 3 months notice when they retire? This guy is less than a month and Gregg "retired effective immediately." There seems to be a different set of standards being applied to certain animals at the farm... as though some animals are more equal than others. :)

Doesn't Air Canada have something like 800 open bids for the coming PSB? People getting A220 Captain in Vancouver after 12 months?

Re: Canadian housing Prices / Wages

https://images-cdn.9gag.com/photo/aEGMewe_700b.jpg I have not met anyone who started at 15K a year.

Re: 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

It’s sad that it’s no longer the limits of technology that hold us back, but the ability to pay for it. No. It's not the lack of ability to pay for it, it's the lack of will to pay for it. Project Apollo, backed by sufficient funding, was the tangible result of an early national commitment in respo...

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

I have heard that Clive is going to take the money from this sale and team up with Tim to finally launch that new Ultra Low Cost Carrier. I heard Mark is joining in and they will be flying NEO's. AC and WJ's days are numbered.

For pilots who have already flowed, there's a vested interest in approving the LOU, because of it's rejected they'll at the very least lose vacation entitlement; depending on interpretation of Kaplan's award, they might also drop down in seniority behind any OTS pilots who started before they flowe...

You will never be allowed to work in the US. Not because the US doesn't want you to work there. I don't think they really care very much, you are not even on their radar. There is a reason that Pilots are always left off things like NAFTA talks... it's that the Canadian government is being very heav...

Re: Tail deliveries for 2019

Must be a slightly dated chart because it does not show the tail reductions in the 737-800 fleet from tails moving to Swoop.

Re: Women-only plane seating needed to combat sexual assault and midair ‘manspread’

The people of the 60's, 70's and 80's fight to end segregation and give everyone equal access to the world... so that people of the Teen's can fight to re-segregate the world and make everything separate again. Interesting cycle.

I'm off to my safe space.

Does anyone else feel a growing sense of betrayal over the delay in implementing duty regulation changes? There is a problem.

It was certainly an option a couple of years ago to use -700s when Swoop was first discussed and was seen as the least disruptive path, but it obviously was not workable, as one of the basic ULCC principles is maximum seat capacity for an aircraft with a given range that meets the mission needs, th...
