    Military FBO contracts

    The contract in Ottawa does not actually meet the contractual requirements for FBO. PWGSC really dropped the ball on that one. If you want more details on solutions we can talk offline, as I have been dealing with the Ottawa situation since the contract was award to AIG in the summer.

    Female student auctioning off virginity to pay for grad school sparks debate

    Sadly being a Queen's Alum, you statement may have some Truth. On another note, there are certain counties in Nevada where prostitution is Legal and I suspect that this brothel is in one of those counties.

    CF cellphone plan

    If any of you are interested in the deal provided by rogers simply go to their store and ask about the military plan that they offer. Sometimes they look at you cluelessly, but tell them it really exists and they can usually look through their system and find the deal and print out a sheet with...

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

    That's cool. I'm not trying to detract from your dream. I was just responding to EStrike101 and mines conversation. I will confirm that among my peers in the training program, the drive to go fighter is lower than most would expect. As for numbers, I believe its somewhere around 12% go fighter...

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

    Officer Pay Confusion, please clarify

    RMC is not the only choice in the ROTP program. Myself an many others on this board have attended civilian university. During the year you are student just like everyone else and in the summers you do your training. The accommodations at school has no bearing on whether you are military or not...

    Officer Pay Confusion, please clarify

    As a direct entry officer like you said you would be at Pay Level C, which is 3468$ a month for a 2LT. You could join under ROTP, get paid to go to school and have your school paid for and come out with a pay level of 48,000$ a year base salary. Also I am pretty sure that you cannot join the...

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

    Well, I was talking about Canadians joining the CAF and working as pilot then going on an exchange with other countries. We swap pilots, so if we sent a Canadian Pilot to Australia, then the Australians would send one of theirs. That is one way of flying for other countries, but from what I...

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

    Canada has exchange programs with other countries. If you are referring to pilots wearing foreign flight suits working in the CF, those would be the pilots that are part of the program. So yes you could potentially fly for the Americans. I do not know the details about the exchange program, but...

    The Electric Car Thread- Merged

    I looked into this yesterday, because the chemistry did not make sense. Essentially what the company is doing is powering their car on HHO (two hydrogen and oxygen). It will burn hydrogen much like other combustion engines but oxygen is mixed in with the fuel providing more power. This is very...

    The Red Fridays Foundation of Canada & Repatriation Memorial Rally (May 08): Objections & Praise

    I was driving up from London to Kingston and passed by the Rally today. It was very heart warming to see all those people out on the over passes especially given the weather along the route. The convoy of red cars was also impressive and I especially liked the semi that was painted up with the...

    Basic Up

    Haven't seen too much of the guys during the show. I guess the girl is more interesting than the guys. Maybe they want to show that women can do it and attract more female candidates.
