Re: Swoop Terrain Warning

Seems like this wasn't an isolated incident. Happened the very next day as well.... December 17 A Swoop Inc. Boeing 737-8CT (C-FYBK/WSW107) on a flight from Hamilton, ON (CYHM) to Abbotsford, BC (CYXX) checked in on the HOPE 3 Arrival and was cleared for the area navigation (RNAV) 25 approach. The ...

Re: Quick study for an interview

CAP GEN stuff is very popular in IFR interviews and also on your initial IFR. Get comfortable with alternate wx, take off alternate, aircraft category, approach ban, what governs takeoff?, approach? and landing? People used to love asking about what to do if an IFR departure is "not assessed", not s...

Iv'e stalled one or two aircraft, never heard of one where 40 degrees nose down was required. What's the normal stall recovery pitch in the 767?

Re: Regional to Sunwing?

Right so if the only thing that matters to you is getting on at AC, then go Jazz, if you want schedule, money, better aircraft, more productive pairings, and better destinations up front, go Sunwing.

Re: Regional to Sunwing?

If they've got time on the CRJ and if Sunwing has a matrix that gives credit for that time towards upgrade, then it could absolutely be worth it. The money is better, the shedule is better, the equipment is better, and the destinations are better (IMHO). The only thing that isn't better is the guara...

Re: Cold Weather Corrected Missed Approach Altitude

To me, the reason to correct the MAP alt is for comm failure. In any radar controlled airspace you're never going to get the publish missed. If you call in the missed, they will give you an altitude, but if your radios shit the bed at that precise instant, you need to CYA, (and the A's of the people...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

I would think that a 130 Kt RTO in a 763 would put you at risk for melting tire fuse plugs, wouldn't it? Did they have to wait for cool down before taxiing back to the gate? Did they get local ARFF to come put the IR camera on their brakes before taxxing? Just curious.
