  1. It might look nice from the center of the aircraft but, when sitting right next to a screen, you'll have an actual field of view of only 1 or 2 degrees. It's not like you'll be able look ahead towards the front of the aircraft if the pixels next to your window only show "9 o'clock" plus or minus a few seconds.
  2. Thanks rudder, I wasn't sure if they had found out that it was pilot action or not.
  3. Blues, We never really run out of candidates. The good ones, that have just the right amount of crazy, are however hard to find. We have increased our qualification rate (at least here, in Montreal) somewhat by reassigning some trainees to another sector when it looks like they might not make it in the initial sector they were assigned to. Even though they might be headed for a wall in a certain unit, their kind of crazy might work best in another type of control. Terminal is one thing, high level enroute another and low-level-non-radar is, as well, totally different. Having the trainees paid right from the start is good all around. Some thought that only those ready to do it for free would be motivated enough to do it but what we ended up with was often some kids living at home with mom and dad paying everything and packing them lunches or some having to have a job on the side to pay rent and washing out simply because they couldn't keep up. Either way, it wasn't working. We have worked and continue to work on our selection process since that is the key to finding the best candidates for the job.
  4. j.k. That's awesome! That explains exactly what happens and I really think our "kids" need to understand this a bit better. Thanks a lot!!! Felix
  5. conehead, True, but with this "overly specific" request, I thought I'd get something less generic from my "aviation family" on the AEF.
  6. Hi everybody, In the process of explaining the RNAV-Y approaches into CYOW to our trainees, I'd like to be able to show them what you see on the FMC up to, and beyond, the beginning of the approaches. For example, what does the fix list on the FMC look like before and after we give you the approach? What does it look like before we advise you we're unable to give the RNP AR transition and after you punched in whatever it is you punch in? That would help us much! Any type of aircraft would be great. More than one, even better! Felix
