xx Town Hall

July 05, 2016, 17:59:18 by Mike Bobbitt

I'd like to run a Town Hall session in a few weeks, where we bring together Staff and users to discuss a variety of topics related to the site. The aim is to reinforce what we are doing right, brainstorm solutions on areas where we can do better, and generally exchange feedback and ideas. The format may be voice/video or simply text chat, depending on the level of interest and a few "tech" factors.

A proposed agenda:
  • Introduction / Greetings
  • Review of current situation
  • Future plans
  • Areas for improvement
  • Open discussion
  • Wrap-up

I would anticipate it would run 1900-2030 or so, and have added a few possible dates as a poll. Please take a moment to vote if you are interested in attending, with your preferred date(s). Please also feel free to propose agenda items if you think there are specific areas we can have a focused discussion.

xx AEC - Space Operations?

May 25, 2016, 05:23:09 by GHG
Hey All!

Quick question - I've seen it mentioned on these boards (as well as very briefly on the AEC recruiting page) but I was wondering if anyone had any information on the Space Operations side of things in regards to an AEC?  From what I've seen, postings seem to be extremely limited and responsibilities right now are mainly monitoring satellites, assisting with GPS etc. but I don't know if that's the extent of it or if there are other operations going on as well.

I understand that you don't really have a choice (just a preference  :) ) between doing the VFR/IFR or Weapons as an AEC but if someone wanted to get involved in the Space Operations responsibilities, would that be doing IFR? Or Weapons? Or maybe not even AEC but another trade like ACSO?

Any and all additional info is appreciated - space is just plain cool and being able to work in a related capacity would be amazing - thanks!

xx Personal Safety Glasses

May 14, 2016, 16:33:24 by messupdude
I was wondering if it was possible if I could bring my own pair of CSA approved safety glasses to the hangar to work on the planes? I'm not a big fan of using the safety goggles that go over top my glasses or using the ballistic that was issued to us. Having a pair of Rx safety glasses would be so much more convenient.

March 12, 2016, 00:36:15 by Chispa
While Curtiss and the Wright company were immersed in the patent wars, some Canadians built flying machines.

First practical Airplane built in Canada is shown in this 1913 picture. At the controls is Gordon K. Hood Sr. who; at the age of 19;
built the machine with the help of another youth from pictures without ever having seen a real airplane. Hood; a native of Toronto
and a pioneer flier; retired from aviation Dec. 31 after 20 years with Bell Aircraft Corporation; of Buffalo; N.Y.
