Re: Air Canada Pool

I believe all the previous YUL EMJ positions were filled from the bottom, but depending on how many (if any) bid off type from above during this bid, there might be some openings.

Re: Nigani Air

That is the one, except not sure what you're talking about in regards to the name, it is spelled Niigaani, and that is exactly how it was spelled the first time around (I flew for the gentleman in question the first time around). It was one of the best jobs I ever had.

Re: Question on Caravan and Flight Safety

I know that the Pan Am sim was full-motion (I believe Level D) and was usable for circling approaches. I did their "ride", but that was only to complete the course. We didn't have a TC monitor, so I ended up doing my PPC on the actual a/c back in Canada.

I do not agree with the above statement. Typically, the ammeter is between the alternator ...

If you are doing an open STAR with the autopilot coupled to your GPS/FMS/FMC in Nav mode, when it reaches the DTW it will simply continue on the depicted heading. As someone mentioned, the wording on the chart alerts you to the fact that you will physically have to close it yourself. Depending on wh...

I was just in NYC last weekend with the family and we walked past Zucotti on the way to the WTC memorial site. I was expecting to see and hear a lot going on, but there didn't seem to be any action at all, not one single bongo or anything. I guess they were tired.
