Guess who won "Best airline in North America" last year?
Someone wanted to see the overhead panel. Airbus's motto: "black is beautiful."
No lights on the switches means everything is copacetic.
Just finished September's flying. Although I was projecting a meagre 72 hours, I managed to pump it up to 82 hours with one day of "make up" and "block growth."
There is an enterprising pilot who developed many programs to view our schedules for the month, figure out expenses, pilot pay, who's in town on layovers, and now he developed elog books and maps of where we've been. Click on just below his company logo and hopefully you'll see where I've been this year. It doesn't look like I've been to too many places but remember many were flown more than one time.
So far I've done 210 flights and logged 605 hours with three months to go.
Yesterday was around ten hours of flying with a 13:30 duty day. We flew from Ottawa to Vancouver and then back to Toronto. Twice across the world's second largest country. (Well not quite across, but you get my drift). But get this, my F/O who commutes from Vancouver hopped on a flight as a passenger to make it three times for him (another five hours).
