Re: Air Transat 737 Diversion to EWR Mar 9th

Other than the initial indication of fire, neither of those reports have any similarity to the AT incident so why post them? What are you trying to show? What do you think the BA or AF crew would have done if the fire crew said there was smoke in the cargo hold?

You really think they are going to do recalls because this POS passed? We still have 197 pilots deemed as surplus, a reduction in 777 flying and you think they will be recalling?

Re: Recall timeline

Everyone keeps talking about returning to 2019 levels. Please remember 2019 was the best year ever seen in aviation. YVR A320 captain after 2yrs? Completely unheard of in my time flying. Perhaps we should lower our expectations a bit to make a more realistic timeline.

Re: Halifax crash report coming Thursday

According to a source of mine.....AC is slowly changing their procedures on the Airbus to what the Airbus procedures are.

Re: Aircraft cancellations

With the cargo operation being proposed, why would it be a pay cut to the pilots to fly cargo? Just doesn't seem inline with the working conditions if it's going to be overnight type freight hauling. There is no good reason for it at all other than Calin knows ACPA and a majority of its pilots have...

Re: Cargo TA

Its 90% of mainline 767 wages. Big raise from the rouge flying. With mainline working conditions to boot. It could bring hundreds of pilots back from the street and save some sense of career progression. Anyone off of flat pay will be the highest paid cargo pilots in Canada. No where in the agreeme...

Re: COVID MOA 2

The TransAt merger completely shifts the paradigm. The goal post have moved. They can use TransAt to do AC coded flying. Just because it isn't obvious doesn't mean it isn't there. Did you read the MOU? It doesn't matter anyway, ACPA can grieve it if they don't like it. The bottom third of the list ...

Re: 2nd Job

That is categorically incorrect. Air Canada and ACPA have both maintained that "the normal age of retirement" remains age 60. There is presently no penalty to the pension for retiring at age 60. There is only an option to stay. You can leave, with no penalty whatsoever, and no impact on y...

I expect nothing. I want the chance to BID on business class. Bidding is not free. If I don't get it, and the seat goes empty, too bad.

Re: Any recommendation on Advanced piloting books?

Children of the Purple. Just press the AP button; at 400' going up, 200' going down. That's what 95% of the people who i fly with do ! That’s a sad statement and certainly not the case on the plane I fly. Most hand fly to 8000-10000, lower if it’s a busy airport and unless the weather is low it’s u...
