Credit to the photographs

I would like to thank Brian Losisto (Air Canada's photographer) for always allowing me to post his pictures. (The above thrust lever pic is his). Then there is Kelly Paterson from Calgary and plane spotter "Erik" from Germany. Of course, I have lots myself. On that note, if you feel a photo(s) may be in appropriate or the content I post a bit dubious by all means send me an email. I will ratify it! That's all I ask!
P.S I'd like to add Nadia from "la belle province" for her contributions!
...and YYC Disptacher...

Blog counter?

Looks like my blog counter " no workie." Never did like it because it was extremely slow to log into. Anyone out there know of a good "counter?"

Just finished teaching four hours of weather to Air Canada new hires.

Sure nice to see new faces. Another course starts in December.

Use Google Analytics. Sounds scary, but very easy to get set up.

Simon said...

Yes, I second that !

Google Analytics rocks, and its reports are very detailed which is always useful.

Simon and Andy, I'll check into it. My blog does have a built in counter which I can check, but you guys can't. I would like the "readers" to see the counts,etc.

Thanks Guys!

Well, unless there is some kind of API that allows external access to Analytics (there might be, I'm just not aware of it), the information is only available on Analytics' private control panel.

Therefore, if you want your visitors to see your visit stats, this might not be the best option for you.

Thanks Simon. I was playing with it last night but I haven't got it to work yet.


Jason said...

Just wondering what are some of the experience levels of the new hires, how many hours?

From the Flight Deck said...

Hi Jason. I quickly asked that, but they were kind of shy. Two were from Jazz, two from First Air, two from Kenn Borek and one from Kelowna. That's all I can remember. One had 9000 hours and another 4000. Many only flew King Airs and Dash 8s and only one had overseas experience.

Again, they were kind of shy to divulge info.
Maybe because everyone who enters the room asks them the same questions. :)

I teach the second group mid December.
