i had my aircrew selection scheduled a few weeks after i had my CFAT, but that's because i was an ROTP applicant, so things might've been different.

How long ago did you write your CFAT? As a DEO there are much fewer spots open so I've been waiting a longggggg time

This happened last fall. ROTP has a lot of slots open for pilots (in comparison to other entry methods) and such since applicants are not going to be going for their licenses or training until at least 4 years after their application date seeing as how they have to get their degrees at RMC first. I read somewhere that ROTP pilot candidates have priority over DEO applicants which is why the road to becoming a pilot through DEO is so hard and long (har har har).

AIAC comments on Official Opposition's fundamental lack of understanding of the importance of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program to the Canadian Aerospace industry

OTTAWA, Jan. 21 /CNW/ -- The Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) today deplored a fundamental lack of understanding of the strategic importance of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program to the Canadian Aerospace Industry as demonstrated in television ads posted on the Web this morning.

"The Government of Canada has participated in the JSF initiative for almost 15 years and an acquisition decision to acquire 65 aircraft to replace our aging CF-18 fleet was finally made earlier this year. Moreover, many of our members are now pursuing JSF contract opportunities with the determination and confidence that defines our industry," said Dr. Claude Lajeunesse, CEO of the AIAC. "And the doubt and dithering signals that internal political debates send to the world will only result in the loss of opportunities and much-needed high-skill, high-value-added, and long-term jobs for Canadians from coast to coast."

As a member of the nine-nation partnership, Canada has access to an unprecedented commercial opportunity on the JSF program. The next 24 months are critical as Canadian aerospace companies compete for and secure substantive contracts on the supply-chain both as first and second sources, as well as on the sustainment of the F-35 which represents billions of dollars in contracts opportunities to serve the global JSF fleet estimated to eventually exceed 3500 aircraft.

"As several CEOs noted last September, the current climate of instability that clouds this procurement decision is harmful for investments, harmful for the industry, and harmful for the creation of high-value-added jobs across Canada," added Dr. Lajeunesse. "The support of Canadians and elected officials is a factor which will either contribute to -- or detract from -- the optimization of the benefits that the JSF program will bring to Canadian aerospace workers and their communities", concluded Dr. Lajeunesse.

The AIAC is the national association representing Canada's aerospace manufacturing and services sector. As the world's fifth-largest aerospace industry, Canada's aerospace sector generated over $22 billion and employed nearly 80,000 Canadians in 2009 and more than 150,000 including indirect and induced employment. Seventy-eight per cent of Canadian aerospace products were exported. AIAC represents the interests of 400 aerospace companies across Canada.

Probably the best raw footage I've ever seen: Ice Hornet - A Roof Over Switzerland. If anyone finds an HD version of this streaming or as a torrent please let me know. I'd love to have it in 1080p on my big screen with the volume at "severely piss off the neighbours".

Bahaha, JD that's a good one.

There's also one from the states where a c172 called in a ground speed check, then a faster plane, then a faster plane, then a F18 called in for a ground speed check......



















Then a Blackbird called in for a groundspeed check. Hahah.

In other news, I have my interview on Monday and my friend is getting shipped out in two weeks for aircrew selection.

"
One day, high above Arizona , we were monitoring the radio traffic of all the mortal airplanes below us. First, a Cessna pilot asked the air traffic controllers to check his ground speed. ‘Ninety knots,’ ATC replied. A twin Bonanza soon made the same request. ‘One-twenty on the ground,’ was the reply. To our surprise, a navy F-18 came over the radio with a ground speed check. I knew exactly what he was doing. Of course, he had a ground speed indicator in his cockpit, but he wanted to let all the bug-smashers in the valley know what real speed was ‘Dusty 52, we show you at 620 on the ground,’ ATC responded. The situation was too ripe. I heard the click of Walter’s mike button in the rear seat. In his most innocent voice, Walter startled the controller by asking for a ground speed check from 81,000 feet, clearly above controlled airspace. In a cool, professional voice, the controller replied, ‘ Aspen 20, I show you at 1,982 knots on the ground.’ We did not hear another transmis sion on that frequency all the way to the coast.

Just read that^^^ I chuckled a few times reading it. JD your father wouldn't happen to have a copy of Sledge driver would he?

Well, update. Passed my interview, got the go ahead for air crew selection. I'm HOPING to leave this Sunday for a week as it's my midterm break and the only time I can go without missing any school but we'll see. It's also when my buddies going so would be fun.
