Re: TSB Investigation - Canadian Approach Minimums

The revamp is mainly needed for a logistical/legal standpoint. Tell me if I can legally do the approach in an easy to follow manner—without having to remember what a percentage of advisory vis actually is and whether it’s inclusive or exclusive and whether TC considers an LPV precision or non precis...

Re: Extended furlough and going back up North

I suppose that it’s possible. But everyone has grabbed a seat and companies are now being inundated by resumes from pilots with heavy jet time pretending that their eventual career goal was to fly a King Air in the middle of nowhere so I’d say very unlikely. Any captain spots that magically vacate w...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Punching out of an out of control aircraft that went down in a residential area seems to contradict everything you said. The Thompson River was right there, and there are no residences in a right hand pattern. Why are only certain pilots sacrosanct? What meaning does the word hero have if it’s abuse...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I’m curious why most military jets seem to adopt a profile of staying low and building up airspeed rather than doing a best rate climb? I know that Snowbirds are performers and it looks cool and I enjoy doing it myself on occasion but it seems to introduce a lot of risk. At a Vy climb, you’re alread...

Re: compression check in the 60's

Yep. Nothing to worry about and pretty typical for a big bore continental. Pulling a jug to fix low compression IMHO introduces more risk than just living with the low numbers, which are at much lower pressures and speeds than an actual compression and combustion event. The only time it gets serious...

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

I always thought it hilarious when training aircraft would announce they’re conducting the “simulated RNAV approach.” What the hell a simulated RNAV? You’re doing the RNAV approach, in real life, not in a simulator. Who cares if the weather is VMC? Call it what it is. A simulated RNAV is an RNAV ap...

It had more to do with the complexity of the aircraft than rules and regulations. Let’s take a 727. A 727 electrical system consists of four generators (three engine and one APU) on a tied bus system. Any generator can run any main AC bus on the aircraft through the tie bus.. and ergo any DC bus thr...
