Re: Accept this job offer?

Always accept the job at hand. At least you're building time toward your next job, if you're not happy where you go. This is a small industry, turning down a job can get you dubbed 'picky', and you might not get a call from your next resume. It's a tough reality, but it's just that, a reality. 20 y...

Re: Kelowna DC10's at YYZ are done.

The crews had a pretty good deal going at Kelowna and I am guessing it will be hard to for them to see how much the industry has deteriorated in the last few years. Hope everyone finds their way.

Re: 9 Killed in Hawker crash in Ohio.

As stated above by someone earlier about real shear, perhaps it's more the absence of any "normal" shear sensations, such that the smoother entry into an active surface inversion doesn't mean it's not a significant contribution to the rapid airspeed loss.

Re: Private Messages Won't Send or leave Outbox

What are you, NEW? :goodman:

They don't leave your outbox until the person you send them to receives/opens them.

It's a bit misleading how they label that as outbox, it's not like your email, it has indeed sent.

I would have to say the sexiest part of aviation...is looking at myself in the mirror as I leave the house to work. This guy nailed it. I truly am what is sexy about aviation; that, and I get to wear pretty much whatever I want underneath my uniform. http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view3/2082183/barney-...

The mistake was actually that they have seven airplanes and want one pilot to fly all of them. Your time off is when the power goes out and your cell phone battery dies.
