Re: Narrowbody Preference: EMJ vs A320

I have been on blithe types in the right seat. Now in the left seat of EMJ. I think the EMJ sked is great flying max hours in only 15 days not 16 like you would on the bus. The EMJ is a great machine fun to fly but you do raise and lower the gear more than other fleets but you also have less sitting...

Re: CRA Rules and Airline Benefits

Well I have lots of old cooper helmets from playing hockey that I think I need to send to Ottawa! But the good news is if your airline gives you a 20-25% off full fare then has a 25% off sale they can't tax you. Here's to killing the middle class and taking money out of retail employees. It's as goo...

Re: Upgrade times and pay.

Lol Airmail didn't take too long for a troll. But to answer your question. The time to become a skipper of a 777 for a well deserving person such as yourself here is the breakdown 15 min to exit your parents basement and get into to your car 10 min to drive to local bestbuy 15 min in store to buy ne...

Re: "WOW" Icelandic LCC

ok zero wind numbers are good. I have checked my books I could be wrong which hey I am lots. But I think we will find these flights will be load restricted or need enroute stops. Because when you get a strong head wind going west or bad WX and you need a long alternate then it dosent have the same o...

Re: Results of investigation into the A319 at Palermo

Ahramin do you flying an Airbus? Because your statement about the aircraft flying it to the threshold is totally incorrect. Yes the aircraft can do it mostly on automation but if it's a non precision approach the autopilot would have to be disconnected much earlier.

Re: Porter/Bombardier set to announce CS100 order . . .

Me thinks that they will have to extend the runway to at least 6000 - 7000 feet. In winter time I know enough about flying a jet that if you land on a runway with 1/8 inch of snow and landing distance is 4000 feet you are going to need at least 6000 ft. So not just porter but anyone who wants to ope...

Re: CMA to end Air Canada CPA flying

Hey Brooks

A lot of Georgian guys come from the north and out west and can fly approaches as good as the CMA guys. We are all pilots and our main goal is to get from A to B without killing anyone I know Georgian will do a great and safe job with these routes.
