Re: From instructing to Georgian

I was using the Seminole as an example of light piston twin vs a 17,000lb turbine twin in a 704 operation. Of course if the instructor is older and has already flown bigger and better and is instructing at the end of his career, then yes, why would he or she go f/o at GGN? That was a critical point ...

Logging PIC on a Seminole is better time than 1900 f/o?

Do general aviation multi instructors go direct captain on King Airs these days?

Not a big deal, there's plenty of guys ready to fill their spots for less pay and reduced benefits. AC will be just fine.

Re: WestJet has signed a letter of intent to purchase 20 Q40
