Re: DHC-2 Weight & ,Balance

You are gonna need the W&B addendums from the specific Beaver to determine your starting index on the SeeGee. Or are you simply looking for a generic Aircraft Manual W&B section?
These planes have modified so much that the manual does not do much good, in most cases.

Re: Pilots in waiting NWAL Post

Watching entitled pilots and wannabes squirm, really is the best part of Covid.
For those that are not feeling sorry for themselves. Give it a shot.
I worked there for 4 years or so. It was a good time. Mostly. If its not too late.

Re: What a difference a year makes

It is tough to plan your staff requirements when brain dead politicians have no plan. We went from 15 days last spring to needing 100 percent of the world immune. This is not ending this summer either.

Re: @#$! 2020

The sad part is more then 2/3 of folks think this is great. In a poll I saw 80% said they would be happy with Air Canada going bankrupt.

I hereby declare the Snowbirds. "Non Essentials" and sentence them to House Arrest, where they can collect Trudeau's meager $2000 a month welfare.

Re: That didn't take long...

Not sure where the number 7 hours was pulled out of? 3 Hours is the standard on a single engine piston airplane. 7 hours is a lot of training. The costs of that are also significantly more then fuel costs. That is time off the next 100hr, that now won't be revenue time. Time on the engine and prop t...

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

It will never return. Business travel alone will never return. There are European countries working on Laws that will ensure people work from home after this is over. If it returns it wont be in any of our lifetimes. The real question is how long can the Government continue to pay Airline Staff the ...

Re: float plane mooring ropes

Well Valleyboy. Try jumping out of an Otter with an offshore wind with your rope in hand and see how it works out. Guess what. There is a reason why every float plane has ropes dangling from it. The only ones I have ever seen without them are American Private pilots and Transport Canada when they ha...

Re: Hey TC maybe this is a good time to extend pilot's medical validity

So how can one look at this as a seasonal float pilot who is over 40? Who generally does a medical in April in order for it to be valid for the six month season?

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

I have seen 4 industry downturns. This one will be massive. It will take out everything from Float Operations to Wide Body Jet jobs and it will take a decade to recover, if it ever does return to the level we were at. Peoples investments are gone, interest rates are zero, so there is nowhere for gov...
