Re: The Return to Normal?

Hiring cycles were: 1973-1974 1978-1980 1985-1990 1995-2000 2005-2008 2010-2020 Avg break between cycles was 4-5 years and for the most part coincided with recession in the economic cycle. The last decade been an anomaly. Hopefully the length of this recession will be an anomaly as well. Just curio...

Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

... Controller salaries in Canada are on par with international salaries ... We’re are in this together ... Why should you get paid the same as controllers internationally? We aren't paid anywhere near what the US or other countries pay their pilots. Could you explain to me what "We are in this tog...

Re: Will Westjet survive?

Yes they will, their fleet is largely paid for or leases that are easy to get out of and basically 1 type, they own their simulators so they can ramp up quickly to take advantage of seasonal booms like Christmas season. They own their whole feeder network and can move people around whenever/ whereve...

Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

They would be insane to lay off due to the staffing shortages that they’ve been fighting and the investment required to train controllers and maintain their proficiency. I was told that the company needs to give the union something like a 6 month heads up if they want to lay off. So what’s the poin...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

How much do orders play into PDM in the military. Does "I order you to do this mission", take precedence over "I don't feel safe doing this mission under these conditions"? Ultimately the AC makes the final call to fly or not. We utilize a MALA (Mission Acceptance Launch Authority) matrix to determ...

As was mentioned, you should still qualify for EI. The application gives you the option to expand on the situation. Be descriptive, give dates, be ready to forward the correspondences from Jazz, and be ready to sit on hold and call call call. etc.

Re: Building and selling of kit aircraft

I'd be surprised if you could turn a profit at this in Canada. The value of the completed aircraft is roughly equivilant to the value of the combined parts. Really no profit margin, or compensation for assembly time. 40 grand on the airframe, 40 grand on engine, 10 grand prop, 10 grand avionics, 5 ...

I think if anything this is going to exacerbate the shortage going forward. I am sure flying for the general public will change as it does when it's faced with major obstacles like COVID-19 or 9/11. There will be a lengthy spool up period, but at the end of the day, people enjoy traveling. Air Cana...

Re: Am I be able to buy some retired engine or aircraft from this website?

I'd talk to North Cariboo, or Kenn Borek, and ask them what they do with their old engine pieces. Pay them more than they get from the junk yard and they'd probably sell you what they have left. It might take a while to get enough pieces together to be a full engine.

Re: B737 Max Type rating or just additional training ?

I think having TC require a B73(D) type rating would be a step in the right direction in the public's eyes. The transition course would be whatever you get approved in your COM, could be 1 session, could be 6, who knows. The first step is admitting it's a slightly different aeroplane.
