  1. EVAS on the east coast is still operating 1900s for AC, but with the AC express markings removed. Not sure why. Air Georgian stopped operating 1900s for AC last year I believe
  2. They are still operating YYZ-IND this coming week according to the AC site. Must be with one of their CRJ 100s that weren’t transferred over.
  3. By limiting the number of seats to 39, it reduces the financial requirements as per the CTA. More info can be found here: https://otc-cta.gc.ca/eng/publication/financial-requirements-guide-canadian-air-carrier-licence-applicants It looks like they want to keep the aircraft on their OC without having resources to run it as a 50 seater. In other words they must be short of cash, which should be a big red flag for anyone wanting to do business with them.
  4. I would be very surprised if it’s WestJet. Swoop and the introduction of the 787 has the investment community wondering already if they have bitten off more than they can handle. Adding a merger/takeover of AT would add to that unease. My money is on AC. Similar fleet once the 310s are gone. Roll it all into Rouge and they’re done.
  5. Just curious why pilots are seeing the lowest take home pay ever since Jan 1st?
  6. It’s not a merger per se. According to the Jazz pilots’s agreement the Georgian pilots will come across with their DOH. There is a pilot bid this month that will include the positions created by bringing the CRJ200s back to Jazz. The Georgian pilots that choose to come to Jazz will be able to participate in the bid with their DOH. It doesn’t mean that they will maintain a CRJ position or their status as a captain as it depends on their DOH. Also there is a no layoff clause for Jazz pilots and any Jazz captain that is loses their status will be paid as a captain until they can hold a captain position again. With all the hiring at AC and elsewhere, doubtful that this will have lasting effect on any pilot at Jazz.
  7. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Some Of the pilots I see in the terminals look pretty unkept Took me until I was in my forties to be able to grow a beard. It’s evident that some are in the same boat.
  8. Dr.Brendan Adams is great. Contact info here: https://www.aviationdoc.com/

  10. The problem with the NPA is there are three proposed solutions: In addition, this NPA proposes that compliance with RESA requirements be achieved in the following ways: 1- adding prescribed length to existing runways, or 2 - installing an arresting system such as an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS), or 3 - reducing declared distances of runways. The easy way out for airports is to reduce the declared distances, which affects payload out of some airports.
  11. Currently no charge out of YYZ. UpperDeck's post would imply that's about to change.
  12. Is this correct? If so when does it go into effect and what is the fee?
  13. I have been using one of these for a couple of years now: http://www.razorpit.com i think it was about $25.00. I now change a blade maybe every 4-5 months shaving daily. Huge savings
  14. The memo seemed pretty clear to me:" As for the transition to the new validity, any medical certificate done since October 1, 2013 will be automatically extended to the 12 month validity if the criteria for consideration apply. In other words, a medical certificate which was renewed last October is valid until October 2014 and so on in to the future." You might want to confirm yourself before you go. Call TC or your base chief pilot. As per a recent memo, the company will only pay for one medical per year now. You could be on the hook for the medical cost and TC fee.
  15. If you did your last medical after October 1st, you do not have to do your medical in April. Check the memo on JazzNet.
