no my grade 11 english teacher is not friesen :P

haha ;) :lol:

so to make a long story short, at 3.5 k hours, you're no special treat for the A320's or EMB, especially when it involves for Air Canada having to wait for license conversions and all the other nifty stuff.


have a good one ya'll.

I'm not nearly there yet, but here are my thoughts: 1) I don't think there's such thing as over qualified, and I'm sure there are guys applying with 2x or 3x your hours. 2) I'm pretty sure you need a uni degree or college diploma to get in, but I may be wrong. I would still try with out it. If you'...

If I had the luck to be flying a '67, I'd be decrabbing considerably higher than 5 ' -- 200' sounds about right.
Yes i didn't mean that the airliners crab 5 feet above the ground lol. It's 50' normally.

Re: Crosswind Question

The way i always did crabs was like this. Maintain crab angle till approximately 10-20 feet. Get into a side slip, and touch down. I notice that even in a side slip, the plane has a intertia to move away from the centerline as the wind's hitting it. Maybe you're just not slipping "enough"? Try incr...

Crosswind Question

One question that i've had is this. During a cross wind landing you can either crab of side slip. I do both as both are good routines. The question i have though applies to crabbing style more than side slipping. When you're on a rather big cross wind when looking at what the plane is able to handle...

what i was trying to get at is that the girl needs to know and be clarified what your job and career is. If they assume you're a jock from the side of the street and can take a day off anytime you want to give her a good morning, then they're assuming wrong. Get them to realize what they're about to...

on your first date you clarify that you're a pilot and that you will be moving around if something good opens up. If she accepts that, then good for her. And if she doesn't accept that, move onto another girl. And no, men aren't necessarily the best and i m starting to wonder if it's that thought th...
