  2. I love how the people in this forum (predominantly pilots and engineers) who have absolutely zero experience in the medical field either as a researcher or medical professional feel the need to try and express their minuscule intellect in a field in which they have nothing to do with. It’s kinda like when a customer says “I’ve got more time in this machine than you!” And the pilot gets mad and complains about it. Maybe let the people who have studied this stuff for more years than your tiny brain has been working for do their job. I’ve been flying for over a decade now and wouldn’t take adv

  3. This is a bit like saying "you shouldn't criticize the provincial fire agencies for their tactics, they are the real professionals! Early morning water drops are fake news!"

  4. While we're at it, I think all the under age 12 kids, who can't get the vaccine shot, should be rounded up and put into concentration camps...that way we can help make all the pussies feel better about leaving their houses. Seriously, get a grip...this isn't Ebola. That, or just nuke all the cities from orbit

  5. Has anyone spitting MSM talking points here bothered to look at data from countries ahead of us in the vaccination? Seems like a common sense thing to do, no? Israel, UK, Iceland, state of Hawaii, Gibitar? Etc Etc. Heres a hint, they are all doing worse (cases and hospitalizations) then before the vaccines even existed. Thats where Canada will be very shortly. And the brainiacs here will allow the TV to convince them that even though 85% of canadians are vaxxed, its the unvaccinated causing all the worlds problems🙄. You don't need to be a doctor, or even have a grade 3 education

  6. It is 100% your choice to get the jab or not. Those of us who have gotten the jab will not miss those of you who choose not too. Because, you all will be on this forum whining about all the things you are not allowed to do anymore. And you will be screaming it is your right that has been taken away. But when you finally realize it was your choice to not get the jab and then realize the rest of the world doesn't want to be near you because it is our right to protect ourselves from this virus. This will be one of the few places you will be allowed to be and of course the hospital.

  9. OK, I bit. I looked at the data for the countries past 75% vaccination rates, namely Gibraltar, Malta, UAE, Portugal, Singapore, Qatar, and Cayman Islands. All of them are doing very well. Of the ones mentioned above that are actually ahead of Canada at 69.3%, Gibraltar's case rates are dropping and deaths are virtually zero, same for Iceland. The rest listed above are behind Canada on vaccination rates. Notably, a cursory look at other countries with large populations that are ahead of Canada, such as Spain and Denmark with 74% vax rates show dropping case rates and death rate

  12. Back ten years ago Bruce sold me his used helmet, a blue gentex with his name on the back. He gave me a great deal during a point in my career where I needed one on a helmet. Since then the helmet has been passed to two other aspiring pilots in need of a deal, free of charge. Just wanted him to know his generosity is continuing to pay off, helping low timers start the path to their dreams.

  18. My wife and I have gotten both of the jabs because we don't want to be prisoners of Canada. I have had people tell me that Canada cannot stop them from leaving the country and I totally agree with them, but the country they want to visit can say, and most likely will say the unvaccinated people are not welcome here. My wife sent me a meme that pretty much says it all in my opinion. " So.... you have been eating hotdogs, chicken nuggets and processed meat all your life. But you won't get the shot because you don't know what's in it.! Well aren't you a special kind of stup

  22. Try loading a layer with 200,000+ waypoints. Old garmins have no issue, foreflight yacks, you can't search them, and the waypoint fonts don't scale. Old Gramins accept ALL Lat/Long formats UTMs. Foreflight yacks at any none standard lat/long format and UTMs what now..... Back of VTAs burried. CFS link for airports doesn't show VFR procedures if on preceding pages, have to search the PDF CFS, super pain. Shall i go on........ Its does some things well, but needs to be polished. I doubt Boeing cares about utility operators.

  23. Not for long. Look at the countries ahead of us. Ironically, the countries slower to roll out vaccines were doing much better than high vax countries. Until shortly after the vax rollout then cases, followed by deaths start to climb rapidly. A short look into the history of corona virus vaccine testing, and why they have all failed to get approved for the past 50 years shows clearly whats happening here. ADE seems to be rearing its ugly head in Israel, England, Scotland etc. I wonder why Trudeau ordered booster shots thru 2025? And countries are spending billions on unified vax

Those that think they will be able to work in the Canadian aviation industry without getting vaccinated might want to reread the attached link. https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/news/2021/08/government-of-canada-to-require-vaccination-of-federal-workforce-and-federally-regulated-transportation-sector.html The Canadian aviation industry is a Federally regulated industry. By the end of October, employees of Federally regulated businesses will be required to be vaccinated. Engineers, Pilots, DOM's, Ops Managers...etc are all Federally regulated. Something else to

  27. People don't realize how much our health-care system is screwed because of covid cases taking up spaces in ICUs. Nurses are quitting. They were under-staffed with a high burnout-rate before all this, and they're working under stupid conditions now. How many of us here would be willing to work (long-term) with no vacations/holidays and forced OT, all for something that is largely avoidable. Most provinces have had those emergency measures at some point. Alberta just went back to that because of rising hospitalizations and lack of staff. Some US states with low rates of vaccination are seeing IC

  28. Let me ask you. Has anyone met anyone who has died or got extremely sick? I've only heard people who know people. None personally myself. Some said common cold or slight flu. Others said hospital stay and lingering effects. And where did the Cold or Flu go in the meantime? I'm pro vaxx but I smell a rat with this thing. (Vaccinated too by the way)

  29. can anyone here, claim to have expertise in managing hospitals? at all? Simple question...does anyone want to die early? does anyone want their friends, family or enemies to die early? No, then the answer is simple. do your part. if the answer is yes....you're a true moron. I'll concede that many people will go through covid with a barely noticeable effect, however, none of us have that crystal ball to know who will suffer the direst consequences. could be you. could be me. for that reason alone, i do my part.

  36. This is just a small tidbit from BC https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/unvaccinated-vaccinated-covid-data-bc-1.6151008 Generally speaking, the statistics show that you CAN get sick with double vaccines, and a booster is likely going to be required, but the statistics ALSO show that the majority of people in the hospitals and almost ALL of the people in ICU are unvaccinated. SO get the vaccine, protect yourself and other. Longhaul Covid does not look fun. I know of people who have died, and I know people who used to be very fit, who are now not able to walk to the mailbox

  46. If your emmune system is low and or are older. It can be not good. If your emmune system is high. Yes you can get through it. But you dont know until you get it. Like playing russian roulette. Is it worth it. Get the jab. Customers are asking if pilots and crew are vaxed. They will go down the road.

  48. I agree fully with what you say here, as well as others who have posted to the positive. I personally know six people who got Covid who were not vaccinated. One passed away strictly due to Covid; two are commercial helicopter Pilots at the same organization with very good Covid protocols (as well as post-flight cleaning protocols for the cockpit) in place; so yep, even Pilots can get it! One Pilot had significant effects (fortunately no ICU stay required) for over two weeks with another couple of weeks just getting strength etc. back, the other moderate, fortunately both have recovered; the

  50. You believe that? Lol I spent a fair amount of time at the hospital last year (not covid) and it was a ghost town. If staff are getting burnt out, it's because of the ridiculous measures they have to bear. With a growing and aging population, the hospitalizations should increase. Remember those tent hospitals? How much action did they see?
