  1. More nonsense! If it isn't blowing at least 25kts in Torbay, By, the Newfs fall over!
  2. But it's only minus 5!!!! T-Shirt weather in the Maritimes!
  3. Think of it as a bonus for asking a good question!!! (
  4. 705 operators (at least) are able to operate to the lower standard so long as it is incorporated into their OC.
  5. You got an old friend by the handle "fatbus"?? Inquiring minds!
  6. Is there still a training "salary"?
  7. Even though CCAA gives protection within Canadian borders and is supposed to give protection abroad, C3's experience sudden shutdown was partly a result of foreign authorities seizing the aircraft on the stands in the UK and other places. Once the aircraft started getting held up overseas, that was The End. Best of luck to rhe Red & White as a group. Nobody should have to go through that. But most of us have at least once.
  8. Muy bien, mi amigo, muy bien!! Doesn't go down the same though. CW flow if you catch my drift!
  9. "Read his handle Dave, read his handle!"
  10. For what it's worth, one of the new pilots at my JAA approved company had his electronic logbook refused. They wanted to see a handwritten logbook. Most companies in North America don't care though, I think...
  11. ...Canadians. The World Community will soon realize we as a people are not represented by those we elected. [GO FIGURE...]
  12. Nicely put Chris. I'm out of Canada now and see things through other-than-rose-colored-glasses [please note the spelling]. However as a born-and-raised Canadian with all the privileges of "opinion", I am embarassed and ashamed by some of the goings on in our country, politically and practically [your example] of the past month. With respect Rick Mercer, a great comedian so long as he is scripted. Get him "off-the-cuff" and he is nearly helpless. With apologies to his talented brother...
  13. Kip: No kidding. The whole "show" reinforces the concept that today's events aren't so much news as pure entertainment. REAL "Real TV". So much for responsibility of the fifth estate. Anybody here read Noam Chomsky? Try giving "Manufacturing Consent" a read.

  15. I used to think I never wanted to leave Canada in order to find work. Now that I am on the outside looking back in, I am ashamed of the system of government by which I was raised.
  16. If you are concerned about the content of your reply, you could try composing your reply in MS Word or equivalent word processing program, then saving it to your disk. Once done, "select all", "copy" and "paste" into a reply window. Two things will be accomplished: 1/ If you've posted in "passion", time will have passed and you will be able to take a sober second look at what you're posting, and 2/ your work will be saved in the event you experience what you experienced!! Been there, done that...
  17. Hi xkbal: I would also suggest you take the Trans Canada Highway via Cochrane and Kap rather than the Soo and Wawa. The road is much better with a lot less steep hills. It'll be a lot easier on gas. I've done the route half a dozen times in the past 20 years!! Good luck. You'll enjoy Edmonton!
  18. Manuel from Barcelona. Que~??
  19. I don't think that is a good idea! Partly because I don't care; partly because it goes against what I think this "continuation" of Jim's forum is all about. Just an opinion...
  20. I'll bet the Yanks are sorry they took it out of service back circa 1995. All they've got now are the clapped out U2's. Vulnerable to SAM's and other such things...
