    Aircrew Selection/ACS (Merged)

    Not sure if this helps but I recently got rescheduled as well. I was supposed to go at the end of Jan, now I'm being told between April and June. Are you DEO?  I was told is they're mostly processing ROTP\CEOTP right now.

    Aircrew Selection/ACS (Merged)

    For me I started by doing them on paper and then moved on to doing them in my head as my understanding grew.  I try to picture in my head how Id work through them on paper.  Seems to be working for me.  Still need to get more efficient though, I dont always solve them in the fastest (or...

    Lifestyle/Marriage During BMOQ/Flight Training

    As a follow up question, I'm applying as soon as Ill pass medical (Had LASIK 2 weeks ago), Guy what happened for you in regards to Second Language Training? The Forces website says you may be sent for it and it lasts 2-9 months [For me based on my limited French it would probably be the full 9...

    "Toronto police officer charged in Sammy Yatim shooting"

    Ive been hearing a lot of the same. Shoot for the limbs.  Dont have the heart to tell those saying it that a leg shot can be fatal and that's secondary to the training to shoot for center mass double tap.  A guy on drugs like Yatim was probably wont stop with wounding shot regardless. His...

    "Toronto police officer charged in Sammy Yatim shooting"

    To sum up from my understanding.  Forcillo fired two volleys of shots.  3 first.  Followed by 6 more when Yatim was on the ground. The 2nd Degree charge he was found not guilty of was for the first 3 shots.  The Jury finding him not guilty means they found he was acting in the course of his...

    Alan Rickman, 1946-2016 RIP

    I thought he was great as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Prince of Theives, and Hans Gruber almost goes without saying.

    "Star Wars, Episode VII: the Force Awakens"

    Couldnt get tickets for today - all sold out.  Managed to get some for 11:30pm tomorrow, couldnt get into IMAX but got Ultra AVX.  Not sure its that great but at least there are reserved seats. Ive heard reviews say its good, just hoping to avoid any plot spoilers for another day or so.

    "Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice" official movie trailers

    Im trying to be optimistic about Affleck and like you said I feel like Ill be surprised by it despite all the bitching. Honestly its Eisenberg being cast as Lex Luthor Im far more skeptical of.

    "So You Want To Be A Pilot" Merged Thread 2002 - 2018

    Sort of a follow up question in regards to what cdnjarhead mentioned. Is a heart murmur an automatic disqualification from aircrew selection?  Ive searched around and found some answers that say yes and others that say its not and they assess on a case by case basis.

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    Also not an expert; but one big factor behind the Super Hornet pitch over the Eagle is that we already have legacy Hornets.  Dont get me wrong I love the F-15 but it is an expensive plane, both to purchase and to operate. Purchase cost is comparable to the F-35 at over 110-120M per airframe...

    "So You Want To Be A Pilot" Merged Thread 2002 - 2018

    Hi all, Im new here but I wanted to ask if its worth it for me to pursue a career in the Canadian Forces as a pilot? Ive been working in IT for 6 years now but Ive always wanted to fly.  I need to get my vision corrected with LASIK (when I first looked at flying this wasnt an option).  Ive gone...

    Fit to Fly?

    I'm writing a paper for one of my University Courses and my topic is on Germanwings Flight 9525 - and that the copilot had seen doctors and been diagnosed with depression, anxiety and insomnia and was on medication for them.  Some of the doctors felt he was unfit to fly but privacy laws...
