I’m going on a trip from EGLL-CYYZ-CYYC-EGLL in a day on 3 different aircraft, and have an idea of asking all (or at least try all) to ask them these questions mid flight! If you want me to add any that are serious, let me know!
I’ll be travelling on a:
Boeing 787-9 😍
• When did you become a pilot and at what stage?
‘I became a pilot when I was around 18, maybe 19, as a Private Pilots License before moving on to a Commercial Pilots License.’
• As a pilot, do you get a discount on flights for specifically you, or other people, and how much?
I didn’t exactly feel like asking this lmao
• What was the first aircraft you flew with overall and for Air Canada?
‘I first flew the Beech 99, as part of a codeshare, before moving on to the airline itself as a Dash 8. You start with the small single engines and make your way to the dual, turboprop, jet, and finally to my position as Captain of a 777-300ER.’
• When and how did you get interested in aviation?
‘I loved aviation from, well when I started to walk!’
• What qualifications did you get?
• Where did you come from?
Didn’t get time
• How many flight hours have you got?
I had to go on this question lmao
@BadPlane ‘Definitely commercial. It takes a lot of responsibility and time to earn, but after every flight getting the feeling of knowing you’ve helped hundreds get to their loved ones, their dream, or their home.’
@Aviation-21 ▪’Definitely smaller, there is a lot more responsibilities and pressure put on you as you are in control. Not forgetting the mechanics of the aircraft.’ (I ran out of time for this question lol)
▪He worked privately for several years before moving along Air Canada’s codeshare airlines and routes before reaching the stage to be able to the fly the Days 8.

Do you like the old or new AC livery better?
Let me know if you want me to add any more, and I’ll try to PM you with the pilots answer and may put it into this post with a bump and the answers edited in. Around 20th August I’ll have them all.
