Re: Are crew meals a requirement for employers?

If so 8(1)(g) of the Info Circular (http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/tp/ic73-21r9/README.html) suggests that equal or less than 10hrs is 1 meal, and 12 or more is 3 meals for the simplified method. I've claimed single day trips. I normally do ...

Any airplane that wants to move on the apron requests it with "Apron". Apron will then direct aircraft for pushbacks, to parking gates, to start boxe...

Re: Wasaya chief pilot position

Bonds are covered by pilots (who pay up front) in the union, under the CBA.

The DFO, CP, ACP are all considered management positions, and are excluded from the CBA.

This position is a desk job. You can get called to fly when required.
