  1. Cool. I didn’t know you flew the Phantom. That must have been really fun.
  2. Perhaps I should have said “more fun and affordable”.
  3. This is way more fun than airline flying!
  4. As a Star Alliance kinda guy, I can confirm that’s correct. Most of the carriers currently using T2 will be shifting to the new airport. It has been interesting to watch it being built from farmers fields into the current facility over that last few years.
  5. Team Sparky will gather tomorrow morning in Port Perry, Ontario for the annual Terry Fox Run. Please come out and join us if you can! The Terry Fox Foundation funds innovative research that saves lives. I know this first hand because I have family and friends who have benefitted directly from this research. Survival rates for cancer have steadily increased over the years thanks to funding made available by the Terry Fox Foundation. I’m no Terry Fox, but I support his dream of a world free from cancer. For the 10th straight year I will be running in support of this worthy cause. If you have ever wondered what you can do to help a loved one or friend who has cancer, please consider sponsoring my run in support of Terry’s goal. No donation is too small and every single one is very much appreciated. Please click the link below to sponsor me, or copy & paste the URL below into your browser to take you to my fundraising page where you can make a secure online donation. If you’d prefer to make an offline donation, please send me a note with your pledge and we’ll figure out an alternative that works best for you. http://www.terryfox.ca/richard http://www.terryfox.ca/teamsparky Thank you for your support!

  6. A friend who is a BA pilot living in Canada told me that their personal travel privileges have been revoked even though that’s contrary to their contract, but they can still commute to work as always. I’ve heard rumours the CEO is on his way out after making a mess of contract talks. Not to mention he took a 50% pay raise last year while trying to convince the public that 11.5% over three years is sufficient & appropriate for the minions. He looks like a buffoon trying to explain that in media interviews.
  7. I'm participating in the 2019 Terry Fox Run. Dear fellow AEFers, This year I am once again proudly supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs by taking part in The Terry Fox Run. As always, my first order of business is to invite any/all of you to join our team and participate with us on September 15th. Alternatively, I would be most grateful if you would consider sponsoring my run. It is my goal to do 10km again this year and raise $3000 towards this worthy cause. My run this year is dedicated to Lisa and Keith. Lisa is a cancer survivor but is still working though the post-treatment difficulties. Her husband Keith is a good friend of mine and I am awed at the effort he’s made to help Lisa through this ordeal. And anyone who has been affected by cancer can attest to the considerable challenges faced not only by themselves, but by their family as well. It’s definitely not an easy time! Terry Fox ran 5342 km in 143 days to raise money in an effort to eradicate cancer. Unfortunately he did not survive the disease, but his heroic effort continues today with the help of those who participate in the annual Terry Fox Run and all those who support it. The cancer survival rate has steadily increased since his “Marathon of Hope” and hopefully someday it will reach his goal of 100%. I sincerely request that you consider sponsoring my run in support of Terry’s dream of a world free from cancer.

If you’d prefer to make an offline donation, please send me a note with your pledge and we’ll figure out an alternative that works best for you. If you are feeling extra generous, please feel free to share my page with your social network. Let’s spread the word worldwide!!! http://www.terryfox.ca/richard Thank you for your support! Sincerely, Richard For more information about The Terry Fox Foundation, please visit www.terryfox.org. Questions? info@terryfoxrun.org
  8. That might explain why my LHR-YYZ-LHR tickets were more expensive that usual in September.
  9. I’d say it was serious when pilots can negotiate their own T&Cs. That’s not happening yet.
  10. I’m always amused how turbulence is blamed for injuries when in reality not wearing a seatbelt is really the culprit. In another article on this incident I read that most of the injured were in “first class” and I wonder how many people buckle up when fully reclined.
  11. The pictures of the SpiceJet aircraft shown above are of a previously owned Jet Airways aircraft as can be seen by the paint scheme. With the recent failure of Jet Airways, I have to wonder how many aircraft leases SpiceJet took over and how quickly less experienced pilots were moved into the left seat to accommodate the company’s expansion. There’s something more going on than “monsoon season”. Gotta’ fill those seats!
  12. Been there, seen that. It’s along my jogging route.
  13. How will that work for pilots whose “previously qualified aircraft” is no longer at their base? I.E. YVR-based B737 pilots who were previously YVR-based B767 pilots.
