Re: Hawk Air

I wonder...if there is an interruption of the check list, whether one should restart from the beginning to avoid this pitfall, or even restart two or three item back on the list, in the case of more complex aircraft. I can't speak for 705 aircraft, but when I flew IFR any interruption of the flow, ...

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

Better off giving someone else the shot and mold the way you want them, not a disgruntled airline pilot. I find sometimes operators use this type of language to mask taking advantage of less experienced pilots. Less experienced not only in terms of flying hours but also in what is and isn’t accepta...

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

Everybody whining about being overqualified; who's going to hire a laid off pilot that's going right back to their spot when they get the call back and have to re hire again? Better off giving someone else the shot and mold the way you want them, not a disgruntled airline pilot.

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

So why don't IFR aircraft just cancel IFR comming into an airport like YQT, instead of requesting a visual? It is the norm with operators that allow it. As is "VFR" departures. As stated, usually its the company SOPs that don't allow it at bigger airlines. Also to your original question, a Visual A...

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

It’s not for atc, it’s for the back up of ifr aircraft who want either an approach clearance or a decent so they can cancel ifr and get on with their day. Nothing worse than getting put into a hold because the people in screaming VMC won’t cancel ifr. Timmins comes to mind. Also for training, there’...

Re: Bearskin Crash — FEB 25, 2020 — Dryden, ON

That wouldn't explain the lack of brakes though. Realistically the nosewheel steering system and brake system is completely separate, although stranger things have happened. Then again, just the brakes wouldn't be enough to overwrite a faulty nose wheel steering, which might give the illusion of no...

Re: Susi Air

You'd even make more money than at Susi. Depends where you work there and here. There have been plenty of captains making 10-15k USD per month at Susi (and some other operators) from what I have been told. That said, last I heard Susi Air was trying to reduce costs. No idea if that affects pay or n...

I heard thunder miss as well at wunnamun. The pic I’ve see looks pretty misty in the background. Probably wasn’t great. Probably landed long and off the end.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

Sorry I would’ve quoted the ASB number but didn’t have it on hand at the time. I also heard from a reliable source it was the lower strut that failed. Hence why a lot of the focus on the SB is directed to that area.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

I don’t think they’re grounded, but there’s a Safety Bulliten to inspect the struts/fittings/bolts, etc before its next flight.
