Canada’s aviation and aerospace industries will play a key role in the creation of innovation superclusters similar to Silicon Valley. Air Canada and PAL Aerospace are among hundreds of companies involved in creating five superclusters across Canada, with a $950 million investment from the federal government that will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the private sector.
Alkan Air Flight Academy in Whitehorse, Yukon, has acquired and installed a Precision Flight Controls DCX MAX flight simulator, the first of its kind in Northern Canada. The simulator is programmed to mimic single-engine aircraft like the Cessna 172, Piper Cherokee and Cessna Caravan, as well as the twin-engine Piper Navajo, Piper Seneca, and Beechcraft Baron, and turboprops like the King Air 100, King Air 200, and Beechcraft 1900.
A little more than two months into his term as president and CEO of the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA), Jim Facette is stepping down. The CBAA said in an email to its members on Monday that Facette and the CBAA board “had different visions” for the future direction of the organization. He tendered his resignation and the board accepted it, the email said. His resignation became effective on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018.
I’m watching the episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jim Gaffigan in a VW bus/camper, and I have a very strong and irrational desire to buy one and travel the world. (Or at least the continent.) This is the stupidest aspiration I’ve had in a very long time.
In the new issue of Skies, I spoke with aviation companies about how they would cope with regulations that limit flight and duty times for #pilots.
The regulations are seen as a one-size-fits-all solution that might work for airlines, but aren't practical for small operators. https://twitter.com/SkiesMag/status/960923794817761280
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
