    Snowbird Jet Crashes Into House in Kamloops- May 17 2020

    Dead reckoning computer does not have the required IFR publications for transiting around North America. On a typical trip, a pilot would require pubs/flips that would easily fill a box roughly the size of a 12 pack of beer, I've done trips across NA with enough pubs to fill a 24 bottle box of...

    Snowbird Jet Crashes Into House in Kamloops- May 17 2020

    While I agree with you, it's a voluntary military in general. Regardless, it does not absolve the folks in charge of ensuring troops have the right equipment.

    Snowbird Jet Crashes Into House in Kamloops- May 17 2020

    New fighter has nothing to do with the Ph2/3/FLIT training programs, which are different aircraft types and will be contracted out, likely to CAE or Babcock. The contractor decides on airframe to meet CF requirements. It's a totally separate project from next fighter. The new trainer contract...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    Yep, hence my preference for 'capability' rather than politics.

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    It's a nice sentiment. It's also why we've had inferior equipment that was bought at multiples of a fair price. Procurement's real utility isn't to actually equip anyone with anything or defend anything. It's to purchase votes in key ridings with 'regional industrial benefits', pork barrell...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    The 737 is a 1960s era narrowbody that has about a quarter of the payload of a widebody heavy Airbus 310. They're not even in the same category. The "jurasic jet" would have almost no functionality as a strat lift or refueler, nevermind the inexcuseably bad engineering and build quality of the Max.

    CMTT

    I've searched and can't find the answer to this. I'm on IT and being posted back after several years. I have a personal firearm that I would rather ship in CMTT than bring in my vehicle. It's partially dismantled and locked in a case. Can I ship it with CMTT? Any other restrictions on CMTT...

    Temporary Duty ( TD ) merged

    This is an orderly room interpretation, apparently based on what an auditor told them is the only acceptible means. It really appears to be a witch hunt to find any and every means to deny or withdraw money from the member.

    Temporary Duty ( TD ) merged

    This was an overnight mission, where I was returning to base after a few days on the road - therefore I believe chapter 7 is the correct one. The CFOM is clear that FLIGHT times are logged from when the aircraft first moves under its own power for the purposes of going flying until it ceases to...

    Temporary Duty ( TD ) merged

    I have a question regarding meal allowances when on TD as aircrew. A search of the forum revealed nothing on this topic. As aircrew, flying a mission on TD and returning to home base, what is the applicable time used to determine when a member is entitled to a meal? I believe the applicable ref...

    IR - Type of Living Quarters Provided?

    Thanks a lot for the info. I have volunteered to be put on the local economy if all their available residences become full and they need the space.

    IR - Type of Living Quarters Provided?

    Are there any rules or guidelines for the type of living quarters while on IR? I am on IR, living in the SQs. I'm on a course to become an instructor at this location. I'm being evicted from the SQs due to a large influx of students that there is barely sufficient space for in the SQs...

    Capt. Trevor Green FundRasier

    Success! The Exoskeleton for Trevor Greene has made it to the Finals. The last I checked, he was in 6th place and made a pretty amazing surge in numbers in the last few days. Fingers crossed, January 29th the winner is announced. I believe he gets $5k just for making it to the Semi Finals...

    Capt. Trevor Green FundRasier

    Guys, Trevor has been slipping in the numbers - the semi-finals are a competitive place. In the last few days the number of supporters and number of votes has nearly doubled. We are on a big roll right now as this initiative starts to go viral - at least in the CF community. The question is...

    Capt. Trevor Green FundRasier

    Capt Trevor Greene is a Canadian soldier who took an axe in the head while in Afghanistan. He was written off by the medical experts but has defied all of them by making a miraculous progress. I met Trevor and his family and he is an absolutely amazing person. There's an excellent award...

    "So You Want To Be A Pilot" Merged Thread 2002 - 2018

    I believe a CPL from an "accredited" school (whatever that means, it's on the CF's list) will get you a PFT bypass. I know of several people who have done this. I don't think they were at any disadvantage when they did Moose Jaw but then again you may argue they had an advantage because they...

    AF Spouses

    If you're married, you'll likely be attach posted to wherever your wife is to wait on OJT (on the job "training") after completing Basic Officer Training until flight training starts. I have never heard of anyone with dependents not returning to their family while on OJT (other than by request)...
