Re: Airworthiness discrepancies.

Not in 705 operations, there aren't. Nor in heavies crossing the Atlantic, as was claimed above.

Re: Airworthiness discrepancies.

In a perfect world, all airworthiness defects would be rectified, NO question,,,,, I do NOT like to do maintenance with unrectified airworthiness related "snags" I have worked for companies that had heavies crossing the atlantic with MANY multiple MEL deferred unserviceabilities. Aircraft...

Re: RIP - Capt Haynes

I was fortunate to have attended a 2002 dinner in Burlington where Haynes was the keynote speaker and gave a riveting presentation on the accident (versions are available on YouTube for those interested). A consummate professional who gave full credit to his crew in improvising quick solutions to a ...

Re: Bombardier sells regional jet program to Mitsubishi

Why is this CEO getting more money, and indirectly funded by the taxpayer, than almost every single member of the S&P 500 -- virtually all of whom are highly successful companies, that make loads of actual profits? He's not. Bellemare's 2018 compensation was unchanged at US$10.63 million. That ...

Re: More grist for the F18 replacement mill..

There is no growth possibilities with the Typhoon. It wouldn't last us until 2070. And at 90M Pounds (that' CA$153M!!!) it's hardly a good bang for the buck... Kuwait's needs are much different than ours... I wonder why most countries are buying F-35s 🤷‍♂️. Are there any other 5th gen fighters that...

Pretty cut and dry to me really! He was flying VFR in VMC conditions, the weather changed, his alternate c...

Re: Boeing Tumbles on Grand Jury Subpoena Probing 737 MAX Approval

Be interesting to hear how much money AC has lost due to MAX grounding. I agree, Old fella, and it'll be interesting as well to see how much of a hit Boeing ultimately takes. Market cap is off around 15% or US$38 Bn since March 1, the bulk of that presumably as a result of the market's concerns ove...

I think you're confusing the Arctic Sunwest Twin Otter that crashed in yellowknife, not Tindi. Maynard's correct.

As you say, it is a complicated world. I agree with your sentiments. Sometimes the most unscrupulous win.

Needless to say, Canada is not the only western country struggling with this.. especially with the rise of China.
I agree. China is a game-changer.
