Re: Legal Marijuana

I think some people are confusing TC's stance. It is the SAME as their position on alcohol. You can not operate under the influence of alcohol or marijuana. Impairment is not the issue, according to the CARs anyways. You can not have alcohol in your system or marijuana, impaired or not. The discuss...

Re: Legal Marijuana

Let me take the other side just for fun. Say I'm a pilot, after this is legal, I get busted on a drug test, reveals I used - smoked -- I dunno even the terms -- 2 weeks ago. I get fired by the company. I immediately sue the company, on the basis they can't prove impairment, so its discriminatory. I...

CRFI

Hello! Small town question: I live in Rankin Inlet, NU and am just watching a spat develop between the airport folks and Calm Air/First Air. The CRFI is .44 and there is a 50 degree crosswind at 25+ kts. The operator says the runway is unusable for a 737-400 but the Airport folks are telling people ...

Pretty sure they are wondering what 7F has up their sleeve...
The Calm Air one is different because Calm Air purchased First Air's Winnipeg/Kivalliq operation. Not as messy as the other ones.

A variation of this question was the only thing that kept me warm for two winters on the ramp in Rankin Inlet. Thankfully the Northern store sells Lottomax tickets.

The best of the best! Great job guys.

I love how they literally flew to the end of the earth, 5000 lbs over gross in -700 degrees, in the dark, on skis and the customer says "Uhmmm... Would you mind if we just added one more passenger?"

That may be the most Borek story ever! :)

Re: Calgary-bound Sunwing passengers angry after 8-hour wait

My understanding is that there were several contributing factors on this flight: 1. The -800 can't operate PUJ-YYC non-stop. Pax are informed (in big bold print) that their return flight will require a fuel stop at the time of the booking. The fuel stop is always scheduled for YHM as it isn't too f...

Nanaimo Flight Training?

Hi there,

I haven't flown in over seven years and am looking to get my Commercial license and multi-IFR.

I will be in the Nanaimo area for a couple of weeks in January and wondering if anyone can recommend a place for a quick and intense run through of the Commercial license?

Thanks!

The same people who figured that $400 million + for a new airport in Iqaluit because they were slightly uncomfortable once they were through security will look at $200 million for a mountain top airport in Pang as a bargain.
