Re: Porter Problems

He’s talking about Porter employees in Canada. The world does not revolve around AC for everyone... I too thought “All employees in Canada” was a weird way to say “All Porter employees” but when I think about it really hard I guess they do have US employees too. Do Porter folks have the option of t...

Re: Misfuelling Thread

would it really affect performance or cause engine damage it was only 2 liters, if they subsequently diluted up with 100ll ? Kerosene is combustible and piston engines can run on it....... IIRC Jet A doesn’t mix very well with Avgas but it does float on top. I suppose in a pinch you could top that ...

Re: Ultralight Has Two Engine Failures

Seems like most of the ultralight guys have a story or three when it comes to loss of power........ I once met a UL pilot and with the stories he told I’m not convinced he ever landed by choice. Of course, I won’t talk trash about ultralight flying in general, all flying can be good flying and I so...

Re: DEPRESSION IN THE TIME OF COVID

This pandemic is going to have long term effects on everyone. You’re absolutely right but I think there are enough resources out there that this doesn’t have to be a negative. I vowed to myself that I would come out of this pandemic stronger than I went in and while I don’t know yet how to connect ...

Re: Helicopter co in Kobe Bryant crash sues ATC.

The parties involved will file every lawsuit they can imagine so that they’re not the ones left having to take responsibility. This is normal procedure.

Re: Piper Seneca in high altitudes?

By the time you’re there, you’ll probably be out of the flightlevels and redline nowhere near a critical Mach. I think it would have to be a really really cold day for it to happen. Could be but my point remains that there’s a secret, un-published limitation waiting for you out there. I’m sure some...

Re: Piper Seneca in high altitudes?

This is strictly anecdotal but I had heard funny things can happen early in the descent if you decide to come down at or near redline as many do with airplanes made to routinely fly high and fast. Turns out that while the Seneca doesn’t have a published Mach limit physics dictate it absolutely does ...

Re: Traning bond or ... non flying job

The nice thing is you sound like you have a number and will be called back to Jazz sooner or later. That means that you don’t have to look for a job for your resume so you can find something without a bond or at least with a cheap one.

Re: how long

All fragile egos and fear mongering aside, I believe getting to the point of operating pilotless airliners has a weird and maybe impassable middle step. Everyone talks about removing the FO next and just having one pilot to watch systems and override as required but I’m not sure I would trust every ...

Re: Use of VFR flight plan?

Yes, with just a bare VFR flight plan you and your info don’t get handed along. If once airborne you request Flight Following, you’ll then get handled along your whole route.

Re: Current domestic load factors

True that there is more than load levels, but it is a piece of the picture. Can you be a bit more specific than “ surprisingly high” With some solid data. “Surprisingly high” is a bit subjective depending on The level of your surprise bar. I operate domestically at what seems to be a minimum of 75%...

Surprisingly high at AC it seems, though that doesn’t tell the whole story. Load factors really only indicate how efficiently the airline has matched the fleet and schedule to demand.

If one assumes that science is the reason we began the quarantine they must also accept that science must be relied on for the quarantine’s end as well.
