  1. Hahaha. Good technique. Never thought of the ‘head-first-down’ method.
  2. That quick thinking saved the plane from some severe damage.
  3. The only survey result that means anything is the one taken on Election Day at the ballot box.
  4. That’s the solution. Sippy cups. Label them ‘Captain’ and ‘First Officer’. The RP can bring his own.
  5. Is the skin ripped or just scrapped? https://election.ctvnews.ca/mobile/liberal-election-plane-damaged-after-media-bus-drives-under-wing-1.4589604
  6. Interesting piston installation. Perhaps better cooling on the outside of the cowling?
  7. More jobs available for those qualified and even those who are not yet. It’s possible airplanes will be parked because there’s no one to sign them out. Forget about a pilot shortage. The northern operators in Canada are going to have a hard time competing for future talent. A -50c engine change near a snow bank or a nice warm hangar in major Canadian city? “For our entry level roles we provide on-the-job training that allows you to work towards a certification,” said Unen. “If you have a great attitude and are ready to learn and grow with us, we’d love to hear from you.” Full story: https://www.skiesmag.com/press-releases/kf-aerospace-opens-its-doors-across-canada-for-expansion-career-fairs/?utm_source=skies-daily-news-todays-news&utm_campaign=skies-daily-news&utm_medium=email&utm_term=todays-news&utm_content=V1
  8. Do other employee groups at BA currently receive some kind of profit share bonus?
  9. Brave strategy considering people do have other options in 2019. How far behind on pay scales are BA pilots compared to other legacy airlines?
  10. If they can’t improve the pay scale as people progress they’d better install a revolving door at their hangar entrance.
  11. I think Nolinor is on the right track to hire people but you’ve got to “show me the money”.
  12. ...into a job in aviation? Quebec’s Nolinor are flying potential candidates to YMX. I’m guessing it’s a recent or soon to be graduating class from Eduard Monpetite aviation maintenance college at St. Hubert. A good time to hold any kind of aircraft maintenance license. https://montrealgazette.com/business/local-business/aerospace/all-aboard-nolinor-woos-job-seekers-with-free-flights?utm_source=skies-daily-news-news-from-the-web&utm_campaign=skies-daily-news&utm_medium=email&utm_term=news-news-from-the-web&utm_content=V1
  13. Hey Jeff.

    Is the friend in Freeport Sonia Ceci? I recall she was remodelling a condo back during our Sky days. I’ve been thinking about her since the hurricane hit that area. What a disaster.

  14. I prefer my wasp ‘Medium well’. Will stick with my Raid/Broil King combo.
  15. https://siouxcityjournal.com/news/al-haynes-pilot-of-flight-that-crash-landed-in-sioux/article_d0c5ea59-ff8e-555d-95d2-6f9d9fe9176e.html#22
