Re: 2 by 4’s inside a 180

Probably cheaper nowadays with metal ones, too!
IIRC, I took the passenger door off, the pax seat out, and the rear seats out of a 185, and an 8'er would just fit in. Couple of brownline clips, and a piece or two of rope/herc strap, and you're good to go!

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

BC relaxed some travel restrictions yesterday: We are finally allowed to travel between health regions again. A short time after the announcement, BC Ferries' reservations website crashed because of volume. I wouldn't expect airlines to be any different once international or inter-provincial travel ...

Re: The elusive first job

I know I need the multi time so I would be very happy to go to canwest, pasco, perimeter, central mountain air, wasaya ect. I'm not too picky, but I wouldn't like getting stuck...

Re: OMNR Tanker gear up

TC says do it at least three times and I do frequently find myself doing it multiple times. Seems reasonable. When I select gear down I make sure it actually does something, so there’s number one. Except gear usually goes down at a busy time on an instrument approach where I’m thinking of minimum a...

Yes, they do. Located in a really nice facility at the YAM airport. Sadly, not full-motion though, so I believe that technically, it’s only a ‘flight training device’.

Re: Flight instructor with no medical

You might try to get a 'let' - that is, give them a proposal that you be allowed a medical for the express purpose of advanced (commercial and flight reviews) flight training only, until your regular medical is re-instated. You'd be flying with licenced pilots only, and day/night, single/multi VFR o...

Re: OMNR Tanker intentional gear up

Just a guess, but maybe it was a gear unsafe indication both up and down, in which case I would also take a solid surface. Pure speculation ony my part. There's windows in both main gear wells, and the cockpit floor, so you'd be able to see if the mains were up or down, or if the nosegear doors wer...

Re: Cat I medical & ADHD

My inclination would be that if you feel that you don't need meds, and you honestly keep things under control through other means, then don't even broach the subject, as you could be opening a large can of worms.. How do you know that you have ADHD? HAve you been diagnosed as such? If you root aroun...

Re: 2021 beaver salary

My suspicion, and inclination, is that only about 2500hrs of that time is applicable. Whooshing along at FL360 in a jet isn't exactly building 'useful' bush time towards driving a Beaver- it's just padding your wallet and logbook. You might get some acknowledgement of your higher time, but questions...

Re: Liberal “ Green New Deal” includes Canada wide high speed rail and allows employees to transition out of high carbon

I know nothing of engineering trains, but it's interesting: in Japan, the Shinkenzen (high speed train) services all the flat areas. As soon as you end up in the mountains (Japan has lots of mountains), the trains are similar to what you find in Canada. Bede, the Hokuriku Shinkansen goes north from...

Re: Canada on track to surpass U.S. in number of COVID cases relative to population

The reason Whistler shut down is due to idiots having massive parties. If people just behaved sensibly then there wouldn't have been any need to shut down. The spike in Whistler cases was primarily driven by employees of the mountain: the Brazilian variant was likely brought in by a tourist, and th...
