Aviation Recession in Canada Airlines feel the Recession Air travel way down as consumers, Air Businesses tighten their belts

 It’s a tough time for the airlines, with passenger and cargo traffic down and projections of fewer air travelers this summer as the nation struggles to recover from a recession. That makes it a challenge for airports to hold onto the air service they have, much less be able to persuade airlines to introduce new service. “It’s very, very tough to expand air service when fewer people are flying,” said aviation consultant Michael Boyd, president of Boyd Group Inc. in Evergreen, Colo. “The airlines are cutting capacity.” Leisure travel drops when the economy dips, and some companies reduce business travel expenses by having executives conduct meetings by video conferences, said Iftikhar Ahmad, Dayton’s aviation director. Officials of Dayton International Airport and other airports regularly talk with airline executives in hopes of getting new flight service, as well as maintaining relations to keep existing service. “It is harder to bring in more service,” Ahmad said. “If people

Creating the future together with Swiss Air

People who will encourage open and collaborative dialogue together with constructive criticism. Team members who will achieve mutual goals with dynamism and energy. Welcome to SWISS Air. Pilot profile The cockpit crew of a SWISS Airliner consists of at least two people: the Captain, also  called  the Commander, is ultimately responsible for his or her crew, operation and the aircraft. The First Officer (or Co-Pilot) is Second-In-Command and supports the Captain in all matters. It is routine for both captain and first officer to fly the plane in turns. No day is ever quite the same An Airline Pilot’s field of activity is very varied and begins with flight planning, weather analysis and  calculating  take-off: an in-depth knowledge of the aircraft  technology  is therefore essential.

Business Suit

We often equate casual dress with more relaxed activities, so if you’re trying to accomplish something – dress up!  Put on a proper Business Suit or somewhat formal outfit, including shoes and socks.  Do your hair, shave, and put on cologne or perfume – whatever you would normally do for a social or business event.  This gets your mind into action mode and clears away any tendency to slack off.

Its time for Air India Pilot to take right decision.

India is also suffering from Global aviation Reession and Two more Air India pilots were shifted to hospital today after their condition deteriorated on the sixth day of their indefinite fast here and in Mumbai. So far, five Pilots -- three in Delhi and two in Mumbai -- have been hospitalised since they began their hunger strike on Sunday. Capt Anchit Bhardwaj and Capt Ajay Goyal were shifted to RML hospital from the agitation venue at Jantar Mantar, agitating pilots said. About 12 pilots in Mumbai and 15 in Delhi are on indefinite hunger strike from Sunday. Over 400 IPG pilots have been on strike since May 7. The Indian Pilots' Guild (IPG), leading the 53-day long strike and the hunger strike, again criticised the management for not taking any initiative to resolve the impasse. "It is clear that the Ministry of Civil Aviation is now taking all the decisions pertaining to Air India and the AI management has a negligible role to play," IPG said in s

Aviation Recession in USA Global Recession Threatens New Aircraft Development

New aircraft that embody a host of innovations have been rolling off the assembly line, transforming the way people travel and transport goods. However, as the global recession worsens and credit tightens, many experts worry that new aircraft development will suffer. Aviation is in the midst of enormous prosperity; much of this growth is due to historic technological advancements in fixed-wing aircraft design and manufacturing. However, the global recession and stratospheric oil prices loom as a threat. In the last few weeks, four airlines have filed for bankruptcy, with perhaps more to follow. What does it all mean for new aircraft? These questions will be answered by a forthcoming webinar, New Aircraft, New Opportunities. A confluence of market demands is generating exciting opportunities for new fixed-wing aircraft around the globe, such as Very Light Jets (VLJs), a new breed of transport that promises to revolutionize travel. Also in the vanguard of aviation manufacturi

We can Do much Faster

If you think it will take an hour to finish a particular task or goal, make it your mission to finish it in 30 minutes.  If you think you’re capable of a certain amount of productivity, push yourself to increase that output by at least half.  Most of us have a terrible habit of coddling and pampering ourselves rather than pushing ourselves to be better and do better.  Deciding to take it to the next level can motivate you to keep doing that and blast through any feelings of procrastination.

Flight Operations Pilot

Whether a Captain, a First Officer or Relief Pilot, an Air Canada pilot's number one priority is to conduct each flight safely with due consideration to passenger comfort and on-time performance. While the typical work month consists of approximately 80 hours of flying, pilots spend many additional hours on such ground duties as preparing flight plans, readying the aircraft for departure, and completing post-flight reports. A day's work may vary from a long-range international flight to a sequence of shorter domestic flights. Reserve duty, in which the pilot is "on call", may also be assigned. Air Canada pilots operate out of one of the four crew bases: Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver. Base preferences are awarded in seniority so pilots must be willing to relocate as assigned. Pilots typically begin their career as a First Officer on domestic aircraft or as a Relief Pilot on long-range, international flights. Job Requirements To fly for Air Can
