Re: Bombardier - Production Test Pilot

Don't take what I said as gospel, it is a second hand rumour from a friend who is still in the company.

Re: Bombardier - Production Test Pilot

I applied for that too...and didn't hear anything either...and I was still a Bombardier employee at the time. But I spoke to a friend in another department and he said the job add was just for show...and that the position was already going to someone else internally.

Re: CARs clarification

CD That one link on the duty time was the kind of thing I was looking for, (although I wasn't actually looking for guidance on any particular regulation at this time...the SPIFR was just an example). One thing that I did notice was the the 4 for guidance...I've never noticed that before. I only knew...

CARs clarification

Does anyone have a link on the TC website for the interpretation of certain regulations? I remember for certain regs which could be considered ambiguous, TC published their official interpretation of said reg. For example, there was some confusion around the max flight time you could do single-pilot...

Sander Geophysics CP

Can anyone confirm the CP's name at Sander Geophysics? His first name on the PCC website is obscured and I want to get it right. I couldn't find it on the company's website either.

PM would be best.

Thanks!

Re: Thunder Airlines FO Job

Actually they are a class act, guess you must have gotten turned down. Name any other company out there flying this size aircraft that will give you a 5K bonus, and pay up to 80K a year to fly this size of aircraft. The reason for the second Promisary Note on upgrade is the fact that before you go ...

Re: Illegal rink for Olympic ice hockey in Vancouver?

What friggin difference does it make anyway, all of the best players came from the NHL. If the games were played on the bigger rink, do you think a country fielding a majority of players not from the NHL would have been any more successful?

Stupid that time in the airplane can't cover the sim training though eh?
Not really, the sim allows you to do the things you just cant do in the real aircraft...safely that is. I do concur that you could argue for reduced sim time just covering the emergency stuff.

Bombardier Flexjet Canada layoffs

Not that many people really knew we existed, but for those who did and were interested in possibly joining Flexjet Canada, we just laid off three crewmembers, reducing the staffing on the two LR45's from seven pilots to four.

Re: MEF (Maximum Elevation Figure) Question

I believe the 100 m comes from the fact that any towers or other man-made obstructions less than 100 m do not have to be charted. I could be wrong.
