So you are right on centreline by the barn. How high are you? When you do see the rwy suppose you are high and end up sliding off the end 'cause it is slippery. Who will be holding the bag? Will your company support the 'Barn 1' approach procedure? My feeling is, the more you make things up as you g...

As it reads in the AIP Rac 9.19.3 Landing Minima The Visual refrences required by the pilot to continue that approach to a safe landing SHOULD include at least one of the following refernces fo teh intended runway, and should be distinctly and identifiable to the pilot. ... Now it does say SHOULD i...

I emailed them also. Received this later the same day. I must be special!! :roll: 3000 will start operating as a charter airline with 2 757s. As the company is still in its planning phase, we are not in a position to elaborate. Anyone who is interested in applying for a position should send a resume...

One of my mentors once said to look at the wind sock. If it is straight out use '0' flaps, if it is half way down use half flaps and if it is dangling like a limp dick use full flaps. Result is lower (or more consistently slower) ground speed and therefore less wear and tear on the gear. ... Then f...

Spiral, CC, et al: ... My question to anyone who cares is this: What can I do for this industry so that I can look back at where I've been and what I've done and know I'm not a scumbag?

AC changes?

This just seems to me to be a shuffling of the same deck of cards. Can't see swapping VP's around as a real move toward the kind of change required to save this airline. Any thoughts?

If AC makes it, you can be sure that their pilots are going to get some more trims in pay and benefits, the federal and provencial governments will continue to pump money into the puppy farms ensuring a steady stream of eager,low priced help. So whine as you may,the market and not day dreaming of b...

snj, so far in this thread you have called me a 'jackass'. Stated you could "smell the copilot in me" it was the "funk of no responsibilty". Expressed that you thought I had a desire to be liked; a "character flaw". Whatever. Your sad attempts at 'wit' and 'debate' are, to say the least, boring and ...

...Regional was the perfect example of paying for a PPC with low wages, just over 20 grand for your first yr of service. ... Even if one believes low first year pay = paying for a PPC(I don't). The major difference is, once one had the PPC from regional they could leave with no financial penalty. I...

csnj, how did you get to be so bitter and twisted?

I do the walk fine thanks. I won't ever 'see' the world as you do. It seems too sad a way to go through this career.

Maybe one day you will see. Nah, not likely.

So can I assume then, you expect everyone, no matter their experience level, to have the same capabilities as you? If they show any lacking, the correction of choice is to treat them like a dog; make them feel like shit and hope they understand and remember. If the 'tyrant' had only enlightened you ...

How quickly you forget RB..how much were you making at Regional? And if you want to pick on the lowest paid guys try Canjet!! A little over $90K on the F28 when I left. I haven't forgotten. Who was I picking on? Pilot wages, across the board, are lower than they were 20 years ago. If AC is gone the...

csnj you must be a real prince to work with (for?). You'll notice I didn't say 'teach', that was you. As oldtimer stated, helping through advice and relating of experience was more what I had in mind. By the time an F/O is on the line they should know how to fly the airplane. It is the 'finesse' par...
