Just to let you know (I hope I don't get in trouble for this) but Justplanes has finished filming some Air Canada Zip flights for their World Air Routes series! The owner of Justplanes is really happy and hope it goes well and that some day he can do a DVD at Air Canada mainline. I'm happy about this because of the Canadian content being done by Justplanes, with the Jetsgo DVD released today, Air Labrador having been released recently, and due in October, the Canadian North DVD. Just thought I'd pass that along.  Smile

Andrew, I don't know what comes out after GOL, but I know Canadian North is one of the next releases. Really, Michel from Justplanes keeps us informed as to what is happening with the Canadian stuff because it's what is most relevant to us. Their products are getting better and better!

I agree that Just Planes WAR are better. Just wished that they had offered more flights on the Jetsgo. I am hopeful for the Canadian North DVD because they definitely have some interesting flights in a rugged part of Canada.

I have the JetsGo DVD, it was pretty good, the pilots explained things very well. The walk-around presentation was great.

MidnightMike, I understand what you mean and bet it is interesting. To me though I like DVD's That have a running time in the range of three hours. I was told by Justplanes that some airlines limit them to shorter time run. I can respect that but feel that it is a better value for longer.

777 guy

True, but, then it would have to involve more crews/flights, I am sure that it can be a pain to have somebody in the back recording your every move. Poor guys, for those legs they had to do everything correct, plus no cursing or complaining about the company, & they had to iron their shirts. Would have enjoyed more interaction with the F/A's.

MidnightMike, They can send me their shirts and I will iron them. As for the cursing, complaining and doing everything right they are on their own.  Smile I bet in reality the crews really get a real ego boost out of this. I have only seen a few crew members who look like they would not want film crew for a film session. I wonder if there are any flight crew members here who have feelings about this?

>> "I like DVD's That have a running time in the range of three hours."

But this DVD in question (JetsGo) DOES have a nice long three-hour-plus run time (3:03). It has fewer flights than many of the recent 3-hour DVDs from Just Planes Videos, Inc. (7 flights); but evidently some interesting things on there nonetheless (i.e.: a de-icing demonstration, which you don't see on many videos/DVDs).

Mine's en route as part of the JPV "Club" Program. (You get 20% off every World Air Routes title by joining the club...then they'll ship you every new WAR DVD automatically. Nice money-saving option for the completists among us.  Smile)

Triple-7 Guy: If you want the ultimate (so far  Smile) in multiple flights on a JPV cockpit program, then you'll want to get a copy of the "GOL" DVD (Oct. 15 release). 19 flights aboard 6 different Boeing 737 NGs!  Smile

Lax : The ultimate in number of flights / running time is the KLM Cityhopper DVD I think : 21 flights for a running time of 180 min !
I own it and it's a lot of action indeed  Smile

I just finally got the Jetsgo DVD and watched the first flight and so far so good. I know some of the pilots in the DVD, so it just makes it that much more interesting to watch.

Blue Angel.........

I stand corrected (re. the DVD with most flights shown).
You are indeed correct. I should have known that KLM had 21 flights. I've got it as well. I oughta slash my wrists for such reckless claims!  Smile

However, as far as "running time", KLM is not #1. There are several JPV programs with 180+-minute times, with Air Europe ranking #1 @ 251 minutes (2-disc B767/B777 program).

For just a single-disc DVD, South Africa's airline, "Nationwide" (17 flights) wins the prize for longest (thus far) -- 200 minutes of action, with old-but-still-airworthy types like the Boeing 727-100, Boeing 737-200, and Bac 1-11.  Smile

777guy.... I to am looking forward to the Canadian North DVD...

I understand they were on board for a "no flaps" landing in Iqaluit, nothing dramatic, just a tad faster than normal  Laugh out loud

Lax : Yep you are correct  Smile
What is your favorite DVD so far ? mine is Cougar I think... but I haven't seen a lot of DVDs... The worst I have seen is the Air France one (unfortunately)  Sad

CP744 : Really ? It will be the first time a failure is going to happen in a JPV program right ?  Smile (however that's not great for the passengers on the flight then  Big grin)

Hi again B.Angel!

Yes, I liked the Cougar DVD as well. Those HARD landings in rain are very interesting. (Try cranking up your stereo speakers right as the B727 smacks the runway....nice & loud!!  Smile)

Hard to say what my favorite is. Many are very, very similar of course....but I still like collecting them all...because you never know what you'll be missing if you pass one up (like a cool go-around; hard landing; heavy weather in flight, etc.).

I really like a lot of the Airport titles too. The DVDs of LHR/MAN and LAX are quite nice. Two more you need to "crank" the volume up on! The Heathrow arrivals/departures from pert-near "on the wing" (it seems almost that close) are terrific.

Another somewhat lesser-known video I like for great thunderous overhead landings is JP's Intl. # 26 -- Faro (1997). If you get a chance to get it, I'd do it.

Of course, all the Kai Taks are first-rate, simply due to "Runway 13". Fabulous field, which can now ONLY be appreciated through the existing videos by the various companies.

The upcoming Avion title of London in the 1960s sounds good too. Wish it were longer than its time of 0:59, but oh well.

From LAX: "Triple-7 Guy: If you want the ultimate (so far ) in multiple flights on a JPV cockpit program, then you'll want to get a copy of the "GOL" DVD (Oct. 15 release). 19 flights aboard 6 different Boeing 737 NGs!"

Actually I am thinking about getting Gol. It really looks good and I think the idea of following the same crew for a four day duty rotation will be interesting.
And I am beginning to rethink about Jetsgo. Just wish they had gone with a DVD by Westjet instead although I understand there was a problem with their management authorizing it.  Sad
I would also like to join the club and get them faster and cheaper but cannot really afford to right now.

I'm glad they went with Jetsgo. If Westjet doesn't want to do it, but Jetsgo does, then hats off to Justplanes in doing the Jetsgo DVD! But with Air Canada Zip coming, and Canadian North just about to be released, we're getting other airlines in Canada with pretty interesting routes.
