Re: Will airlines require COVID vaccine for employees?

I'm curious what the FAA has said about Covid vaccines and pilot's medical tickets?
I'm planning on getting a "jab" soon, but if Iwas a commercial pilot, I would want to
make damn sure I wouldn't risk my medical qualifications in any way.

Re: Boeing to close Seattle R&D center

The most logical move for Boeing would be consolidating everything ay KPAE.
With the 787 line moving to CAE and the 747 line winding down , there's more
than enough room to move 737 production up there as well as base the future NSA
line in the former 747 bays.
