Re: Good footing for handpropping

Well, there's 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back. That was the most boring video I've ever seen.

Re: Westwind

Long story short, this is pretty much the same situation that the FAA is going through with Boeing right now. Too much trust given by the regulator (POI) and not enough oversight.

Re: Westwind

It's been over 2 years and 4 months since the Westwind ATR accident and there has yet to be a report published, it appears to be stuck in the "report" phase. Both crew survived as did the FDR and CVR. Whats the hold up!?? Come on TSB do your fricken job! I can only assume the report phase ...

Re: California teen steals plane, crashes into building

Wow, figuring out how to get a PT6 lit with zero training, I'm quite impressed :supz:
The insurance company however, does not share my sentiment!

As part of the descent checklist, the TR

Re: Westwind

That being said, your post would suggest captains should've marched into the CP's office and say they refuse to fly to ZFD until they upgrade the deicing equipment. Care to take a guess at how that would've played out? :lol: The answer to that is simple. The flight would not go until the safety iss...

Re: Westwind

If westwind can't operate legally how they are setup then its the Captains job to set the parking brake till they do. You think those bars on his/her shoulders are for decoration? That's the kicker, they were legal to operate! The deicing box was "ticked" so TC must have been happy that t...

Re: Westwind

At the risk if putting words into his mouth, I think that what Guilden is getting at is the corporate safety culture of Westwind Aviation was the root cause. When senior managers who have absolutely no aviation experience are tasked with running an airline you will undoubtedly see a corporate cultu...

Pilots will always give you their opinion whether asked or NOT, as seen in these forum pages. But, god forbid, if someone from outside the industry asks for their opinion, they bitch about being asked for it!! :roll: I don't get it....

Some hide it better than others. I can guarantee you there are guys out there right now that suffer from anxiety but power through it to stay employed.

Saw the WEW ATR flying around La Ronge this afternoon Probably a test flight with a buyer. Heard the 705 AOC has been reinstated, probably some training flights with transport Canada watching. Ya, with TC watching :roll: I feel much safer now. Maybe if they would have been "watching" in t...

Re: Weekly West Wind Captain Ad

Is there a contract reason why they're set on 500mpic? Must be a customer requirement. Also, if you have 500 MPIC, there might be a slightly less chance of making the typical green captain mistakes.
