  2. I haven't read all the posts and I never opened any of the links all I want is for Alberta to return to it's normal climate, a climate that allowed Dinosaurs to roam until their extinction

  5. ALL AME's, until they obtain a special D-AME-AVOP. But it doesn't affect Pilots yet so the grey area is the AME's who also have a pilots licence are good to go. p.s. Westjert has negotiated a let to allow specific personnel to taxi for a grace period of 6 months (or so I heard)
  6. Given their Native connections I wonder if they will adopt "First Canadian" as the name for the merged airline? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/canadian-north-first-air-plan-merger-of-equals-1.2607324 The owners of Canadian North and First Air have confirmed they are proposing to merge the two northern airlines. NorTerra Inc. and Makivik Corporation issued a joint news release Friday saying they are in talks that could lead to a "merger of equals, subject to the successful conclusion of negotiations and regulatory review."
  7. It would probably be funny if it wasn't true
  8. According to the WSJ http://live.wsj.com/video/us-pilot-shortfall-hits-earlier-worse-than-expected/D9C6835A-A53F-4FFD-9A0C-2273BF337A7E.html#!D9C6835A-A53F-4FFD-9A0C-2273BF337A7E

  11. It's too bad these youngsters today didn't have good role models like we did
  12. A couple of responses from the kit provider Good day Brett Just a follow up to our conversation today regarding your questions on the medical kits.... I dont have all the answers as yet...and I will be back on Tuesday to complete this task. The question about medical kits on the aircraft has raised some interesting things....as it appears that all medical kits stay on board the aircraft when they are parked overnight or weekends (like you said) in freezing conditions. I can tell you that most of the drugs in the kits have only recommended storage temperatures on the packaging....which seems to be generic household temps of 15 to 25C. I have found two items in the kit that definately say "prevent from freezing"....and we are looking into these from a CARS and airline point of view. I am also checking with other major air carriers to address this question. and then 2. The contents of the medical kits are susceptible to freezing and therefore should not be left on the aircraft when aircraft is not in use or parked. 3. Other operators and airlines removed the medical kits (water,pop, coffee makers) if the aircraft is not in use after a few hours....it is part of the flight crew responsibility to effect cold temperature procedures as oiutlined by each operator. 4. The kits we put together or replenish for operators in the future will have a notification sticker on the release tag sleeve stating..."prevent from freezing".
  13. All aircraft 100 seats and more per CARs 725.91
  14. We just purchased these kits and silly me I asked the supplier about freezing, now all future kits will be labelled "Do Not Freeze" or something to that effect that limits the temps
  15. The emergency medical kit required by CARs 725.91 can not be frozen so it has to be removed from the aircraft if it is going to sit unheated for any length of time. My question is how do other companies handle this requirement? Are they treated as commissary and removed/installed each day? or does maintenance or ramp perform this function? Any help would be appreciated Thanks http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/regserv/cars/part7-standards-725-2173.htm#725_91

  18. Sometimes I just want to cry http://local15tv.com/shared/news/features/top-stories/stories/wpmi_norads-santa-tracker-draws-criticism-6593.shtml NORAD's Santa Tracker Draws CriticismUpdated: Tuesday, December 10 2013, 02:26 AM CST A North American Aerospace Defense Command website showing Santa Claus delivering presents while flanked by fighter jets has some child advocates raising concerns about Saint Nick's new travel companions. NORAD Tracks Santa, operated by the joint U.S.-Canada command, has provided children with information about Santa's whereabouts since 1955. In recent years, Santa updates have included animated videos showing Santa on his flight path. In addition to Santa's traditional sleigh and reindeer, NORAD has added an animated fighter plane escort to give a realistic feel to the popular program, a command spokesman told Reuters. "We wanted to let folks know that, hey, this is a NORAD video, and we're the military and this is our mission," Navy Captain Jeff Davis said. Allen Kanner, a California child and family psychologist and co-founder of the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, told The Boston Globe the Pentagon is "completely out of line" for linking Christmas with the military.
