Hi, I agree with the above comments, atc are there to provide a service so why not use this service you don't gain anything really by not doing so. Wouldn't you like to update with Dubs QNH to avoid busting any airspace, if you get into difficulty for whatever reason wouldn't it be nice to be able l...

To be honest i can't see how an accountant would advise against giving CAE you business name. One thing is certain you will have to set up either as a sole trader or a limited company otherwise Brookfield are unable/unwilling to pay you. Supplying this business name (not Brookfield) but the one you ...

Hey guys, I don't know when you will receive the contract, myself I remember receiving it weeks before starting in EMA for the induction. Don't panic yet though it more than likely will be implemented but when, who knows. The same type of thing is going on in Easy aswel at the moment, just the times...

Hello guys, not on a TR or anything but just out of curiosity can I ask if you have recieved your Brookfield contract yet. The reason I ask is that at the pilot meeting recently at my base someone asked the question about any change in terms and conditions to current Brookfield contractors, the answ...

Happy New Year all!!

Dogbiscuit, I think you may have missed the point of my comment. It was not intended to be an insult, just some constructive advice. As for my spelling, ya it has gone down hill ever since I gave up writing novels for reading heat magazine in the cruise :wink:

Very good clip, thanks for sharing. Maybe this "pilot" should have taken the bus to bangor or wherever she was going. Few things to mention on this firstly a MAYDAY was declared because she couldn't control the aircraft, minutes later "i THINK everything is okay now" and she was ...

Nice debate but I am surprised to see some people are quite content to fly in "known icing conditions" in aircraft with AFM's stating "avoid known icing conditions". The decision to climb through icing conditions to find VMC on top is not one I would make myself. What your trying...

Hi, by Stansdead you mean Stansted i think. Was never based there myself, also o lot of people are of the opinion that the bigger bases are not the nicest to work from, smaller bases with 6-8 aircraft have a much nicer atmosphere, and for that and other reasons not many peope want to fly from Stanst...

Hi papatango, although they ask you where you would like to be based during the FR interview, the base you get may or may not be different. Once base cx is complete they phone you with the option of a few bases for line training, but I have heard of some people not been given a choice at all. These ...

I can only speak for the 738 which has ADIRU's Air Data Inertial Reference Units. The system consists of two independent IRS's (L+R), each of which has three sets of laser gyro's and accelerometers. Once aligned and in NAV mode the provide a hell of a lot in combination with the Air Data part of the...

Indeed, if the "new guy" you are referring to is N714GZ he/she will be okay, all TR's up to the end of October will go ahead as planned, November through to March there will be nothing. Also Ryanair has purchased a number of new sims due for delivery shortly and i think the plan is to do t...

Mr. Crow Unfortunately the internal memo that Cosmic posted was the first of such type issued by Ryanair that was about three weeks ago, mid last week another was issued on crewdock saying that there is now a complete recruitment freeze. Reasons given were no pilot turnover massive and volumes of ap...

For a light General Aviation flight i would not recommend Malaga airport, because recently i've flown there IFR from Jerez although ATC were very helpfull one got the impression they were not too happy, especially the fact that we were in cloud and couldn't comply with some of their vectors due to M...

For sure if you are Irish but a danger in an aircraft or struggle passing exams then you can forget about it, that is as it should be with any airline. I meet the criteria so far with 3 out of 5 flight tests done with good grades so fingers crossed for getting a job in Shamrock in a few months time ...
