Re: Private Owner A/C Rentals in Southern Ontario?

Borden Flying Club has a lovely Cessna Cardinal 177B as well. Slightly more expensive / hour but much less of a buy in! Located at Edenvale Airport. www.bordenflyingclub.com

Enjoy. After 28 years generally not flying smaller single engine aircraft I am having a riot!

Re: Ornge Revisited

I am guessing crimes have been committed by the dozen all the way up to the Premieres office. How many aircraft were purchased b...

Ornge Revisited

As I suspected it is my belief that Ornge bought the fleet of Canadian Helicopters for an undisclosed amount of money and I also suspected the fleet of aging Sikorsky's would be worthless for anyone else to potentially operate other than Canadian Helicopters. Apparently all the Sikorsky's are for sa...

Re: Aviation Document Booklet - Expiration

My advice to you if you really feel that strongly about the 40 dollar fine is not to worry about it. In all reality when was the last time you were ramped. I do show my licence regularly to US Customs. The booklet rarely leaves my hands and all they want too see is a valid medical. If on the 2 in 16...

Re: History and airplane fatalities on Kagianagami Lake, Ont

I would suggest you get hold of Luenenberger Air Service firstly and Nakina Air Service both in Nakina and ask them some questions and they may be able to direct you to someone that might know. I doubt they know themselves. Some of the First Nations crowd in the area would know some elders that may ...

Re: Webbwood Airport

Yes you have the facts correct on both the Webbwood and Espanola West airport. I am not sure if the Agnew strip is still useable. The crash at Espanola was horrific. I believe the victims all jumped out of the burning a/c that was in the trees... When they were on the ground below the a/c, all the f...

I have to say that my first 2 instructors on my PPL were the best!

Both Mel Laidlaw and John Nagy at Sudbury Aviation were excellent career type instructors and were awesome. It was great to do my first solo on skis and then do it over again a month later on floats!!

Re: Ornge-The truth is emerging (finally)

The newspapers and opposition parties should be calling for a full judicial enquiry and bring all the players to the table. Every air ambulance company in Ontario will likely have plenty to say about this! I have a funny feeling they have been gagged by Ornge if they wanted any further business!!!!
