  1. What does it matter if you can’t afford fuel to get to the cottage?
  2. Clearly you didn’t read the manual closely before that first flight. Boeing says to retard the thrust levers to reach idle at touchdown. Airbus, on the other hand, just starts yelling “retard” at the appropriate time.
  3. Sounds very similar to my first landing on the mighty Metro. I think the divots can still be found on the button of 36 in YWG.
  4. Colonel Miller was the Base Commander when I was on course in Moose Jaw. His son was on my course. Both super nice people! Sad to see such an accomplished flyer hang up the keys, but nice that he did it on his own terms and with such a classy gesture to boot. Funny story… When I arrived in YMJ for pilot training I had already been issued my new blue uniform because I was in YOW when DND began switching back to distinctive colours for each branch of the service. Only Colonel Miller and I had the new uniform. The Base CWO was p!ssed off because he still had to wear green! There was a lot of “what should we do about this” discussions, but finally it all fizzled out. Thankfully, by the time graduation rolled around, we all had our blues and looked good marching around the parade square. Well, as good as pilots can look on a parade square.
  5. Belated happy birthday Kip! Would you mind telling us which one of those characters reminds her of you? Given the “milestone”, I was looking for something more like in the group but can’t seem to locate it. Ummm….. Is there a “run and hide” emoticon??? I could use it about now.
  6. IMO the problem goes beyond GTAA/CATSA/CBSA…. Inflation running high… Wages not keeping up… Two years of being kicked around as if employees are disposable… Governments that preach they can magically solve all our problems… Even up here in Muskoka where there’s chronic complaining about lack of jobs, employers can’t find employees… I suspect we’d better get used to lineups for a while. The proles are fighting back.
  7. So does that mean the argument is valid until it isn’t OR not valid until it is?
  8. And once again the argument for interconnected control columns versus stand alone side sticks gets blown to smithereens.
  9. Union members in Canada have limited avenues available in pursuing employers. Your friend should read these and other similar articles from employment law firms before deciding on a course of action. https://jeffreyrobles.com/2021/01/04/as-a-union-member-can-i-sue-my-employer/ https://sultanlawyers.com/blog/how-do-i-enforce-my-rights-if-i-am-part-of-a-union/
  10. If that’s the case, I’d be the wrong person to ask. My resume department is closed.
  11. That’s great, but who is going to fly their planes? Of the first seven pilots who expressed an interest, and who combined had over 100 years and 100,000 hours of flying experience on Airbus aircraft, only one remains. And that’s the chief pilot. Terms being offered are worse than Swoop and Flair. Jetlines could become JetsGone faster than JetsGo.
  12. Ouch! Even a Will Smith slap wouldn’t hurt that much.
  13. Must be the entrance to a strip club.
  14. Look what the postmaster sent me today. It’s like Christmas in March! Definitely worthy of “lockdown distractions”.
  15. I for one am not falling into Kip’s diabolical trap. He’ll have to achieve complete world domination in some other way.
  16. I've been "vertical" for thousands of feet in both a climb and decsent with no adverse physiological effects. Can't see any reason for loss of consciousness unless trapped gas caused serious enough pain. But it apppears from the available data that this accident sequence began well before that would have been of any consequence.
  17. I have one of these for the smelly jobs.
  18. If there wasn’t a structural failure before the reversal, there certainly may have been as a result of it. If the vertical speed numbers are accurate, they must have taken quite a Gz load to generate.
