Re: Buffalo DC-3 Hay River

I think they ran out of fuel, first one quit, then shortly after the other.
Instead of declaring a fuel leak, the used the ass covering excuse, the old plane just couldn’t maintain altitude on one.
Of course, this is all in jest because I have no idea what happened

Hello centre.....we have a fuel leak......CLASSIC ass cover.

JBI, I understand that you’re a lawyer, so you would or should know better than most the importance of how something can be interpreted. Section 1-1.05 is the important one where (a) there will be 90% of active WJ pilot positions and (b) No pilot shall be laid off as a direct result of a number of d...

Re: Air Tindi Flight Missing

That’s extremely disappointing to read. I once had a vacuum pump fail, the CP wanted me to fly it to a maintenance base after the sun had already gone down. I told him no and after several back and forth and threats of firing me, I still said no. He hung up on me, then phoned back and demanded I be ...

No one is getting “screwed”, they are not forced to accept the job, honestly does anyone accept responsibility for their choices anymore. The Captains are getting paid travel because those positions would otherwise go unfilled, if the FO positions remained unfilled, guess what, they would likely get...

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

Take home net pay for Jazz FOs especially on reserve is around $2000 a month. There is an oversupply of FOs on reserve so we rarely get called to fly and basically make no perdiems or overtime pay. When you factor in the average cost of rent for a one bedroom condo in YYZ or YVR being $2000 a month...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines: 'No survivors' on crashed Boeing 737 max

Does the 37 not have the ability to remove bad information, ie; transfer the good side to the opposite display?
The RJ can transfer an ADC from one side to the other, thereby removing the spurious info. You can also disable the stick shaker.

Just for clarity, are the 737 crews being paid the minimum monthly guarantee while their aircraft is offline? If yes, what is the minimum guarantee for the 737 crews?
