Dear fellow Air Canada pilots....
June 18th marks the annual Toronto Pearson runway run on 24 left-06 right. And guess who was asked to recruit a total of ten Air Canada pilots to form a race relay team? Daryl from the GTAA frequents my blog so how can I say no? :)
Pilots (my plea)
You flexed on it, laid rubber on it, went TOGA on it, demonstrated cross wind landings and take-offs on it, barrelled down on it, skidded a little on it, went around on it, shot the ILS on both ends on it, well....why not run down on it?
Believe me, I don't like to run. True, I've run along the rice fields of Narita, Japan, pounded the pavement along the Rhine in Frankfurt, jogged the beach in Tel Aviv, ran up Victoria's peak in Hong Kong and ascended the stairs on Mount Masada near the Dead Sea, jogged in the scenic parks of London, England, noticed the scenery in Vancouver's Stanley Park while jogging (ahem), but I hate to run. I really do.
I guess this is also a test to see how many of my colleagues visit my site. LOL I know a couple of F/Os do and you guys are both in great shape. What do you figure guys and gals? Don't worry about registration fees...we got airline deals (they were waived). LOL
And if you could...pass it along.
I know it will be a required day off, but look at it as a novelty. How many pilots have actually set foot on a runway?
So, any A.C pilot up for the challenge?
