    Degrees True vs Magnetic

    Out with the old... FWIW I agree, I think with today's equipment it's logical & sensible to do away with magnetic headings.

    Degrees True vs Magnetic

    ....soooo, back to the original post... What about all those magnetic RMI's in GA aircraft? Chuck out & replace?

    Degrees True vs Magnetic

    Why have their own system? Freedom from reliance on the US Air Force, most likely. If the Americans ever decide to pull the plug on GPS, it sure is nice to have a backup. Drastic scenario, I know... but with Trump anything's possible

    Ontario Express! I'd totally forgotten about them. Awesome shots. Thanks Blues for the great memories.

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    They were awarded spots on the WJ pilot dept list based on date of hire at Swoop - which is (almost) BOTL.

    First WJ plane in new livery

    Two thumbs up from me! Pretty sharp.

    Incidentally, C-FWAD is a recycled registration from a 737-700 that we retired some years ago. Speaking of recycled registrations: all of the old registrations from our 24 737-200's have resurfaced on the 737 NG's.

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    Swoop flying will be done by WJ pilots. Confirmed by the ALPA MEC in an email to the WJ pilots.

    I watched it this morning, so it must have been yanked sometime today. It was indeed an internal video from a few years ago, meant for WJ pilots' eyes only. Certainly did NOT show Clive's best side. T9

    YYC small aircraft landed on 36NE

    Both props are feathered. Been a loooonnng time since I flew the PA-31, but as I remember, under normal ops we never feathered the props. Possible inflight shutdown on both sides...?

    Lockheed to build new Supersonic Jet

    "in part because noise complaints limited its flights." Syntactically I agree, these words don't tell the story correctly - but it can't be denied that the market for the Concorde was severely limited by its sonic boom (which, if you twist it inaccurately enough, could be called a "noise complaint") in combination with its limited range (no trans-Pacific). Kept its playing field pretty small. It'll be interesting to see if there can be such a thing as a "quiet" sonic boom!

    Swoop News and Other Changes at WestJet

    A pre-Gregg-retiring story. Will a post-Gregg story look different?
