Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

The carbon tax in BC has also resulted in the lowest income taxes for 90% of us. You have to make well into six figures to pay what Albertans pay in income tax. If you buy smart and change your lifestyle you can get out of paying a lot of PST and carbon tax. We also have a balanced budget. Compare ...

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

The company Trudeau uses for carbon offsets is Less Emissions. They even advise on their website that carbon offsets are a dubious way to help the planet, you should make an effort to reduce the fuel you burn first and foremost. And Less Emissions was founded by a good friend of Gerald Butts, Trudea...

Re: Environmental impact of aviation

Environmental impact of aviation? There is a federal election happening right now, and most leaders are criss-crossing the country in relatively modern aircraft. Except for the guy who preaches most about "doing better". He's flying around in a 737-800 for himself, and a 737-200 for his costumes. Bu...

Re: "it's just good airmanship"

PPL students are blank slates. Their only frame of reference is their instructor. Instructors set an example on every flight good or bad and I think it is something that needs more emphasis by class 1’s and CFI Last week I was number 2 behind a flight school airplane with an instructor and student....

Re: Environmental impact of aviation

Is aviation really that essential? Does everyone NEED cheap flights to their all-inclusive? Should business people and government folk always fly for face to face meetings, instead of FaceTiming/conference calls? Do northern communities need instant pop and chip resupply flights? I bet 90% of aviati...

Re: Landed Beside Runway

I landed at a northern mine strip in early spring, and almost landed on the edge lights. At this particular strip, there was a ditch on one side that paralleled the runway and doubled as a road. When the road/ditch and runway were both plowed, if you landed in the center of the gravel, you’d be very...

Re: Commuting In/Out of Uniform & CATSA

If you bring too much liquid, the TSA confiscates it and throws it away, in case it's a bomb. So they throw it away, in case it's a bomb, in the garbage can right next to them. With all the other possible bombs, in the area with the most amount of people. #TSAlogic Like the time they left a pipe bo...

Re: Swoop Pilot Open House & Info Session

Make sure you tell applicants about the scheduling LOU you just added. Days off awarded on your monthly schedule that were not requested days off, are automatically grey days. Swoop can schedule for anything on grey days, and it's not paid as OT, just straight time. That explains why recent flights ...

Re: Canadian/First Air Merger

This is a merger in name only. The organizational structure and head office location clearly show this to be a takeover.

I've heard from friends that there are lots of 5T pilots running away as fast as they can.

Good luck!
