  2. Even though it has come at a great cost of changing its ownership and name, it’s nice to see that this airplane is finally getting the attention it deserves and hopefully will be used extensively at urban airports where its strengths lie.

  4. Yup you got me there. The same SOP and training program that provided little to no guidance on factoring in wind, cold temps, etc when using FPA in the Halifax hard landing. Read the report....... Sorry but I shouldn’t have use work around tools that a Navajo pilot doesn’t need because the airplane has had IFR gps sine 1996. I’m pretty sure you were perfect and followed all the new “no smoking” rules in the Convair days. ?

  5. Why work on fixing other people's messes if you don''t like doing that? I'm a plumber by trade. I choose to do only new installs. I don't want to clean up other people's **bleep**. If we only fixed existing problems we'd still be using an "improved" telegraph vs a smartphone. He's not "Mike the White" so what's the problem? Do Jet Blue or WJ have safety issues that are different than existing carriers? Neeleman uses new aircraft not junk so it's likely safer than riding in an MD80, 737-500 series, or an older NG, etc. AC's 320's didn't even have a GPS. I used my foreflight acct on my ipad-cellular version for situational awareness. You provide what the customer wants not create a product that no wants or wants but isn't willing to pay for. ie A380, 318, 737-600, etc

  6. After C3 was abandoned by ALPA in 2001, our membership continued even though the dues stopped. I still get their magazines but they go straight to the recycle bin.

  7. This ain’t no Avro Arrow project. What a great aircraft designed by Canadians. The amount of detail that has gone into this aircraft is incredible and it’s paying off.

  8. It's the Avro Arrow all over again. I have mixed feelings - glad to see the aircraft design survive and (hopefully) prosper but disappointed that we (as a country) couldn't make a go of it ourselves. And, yes, I do know the forces at play are much bigger than one small company in one small country.
