Re: Westjet mask policy

Not sure anyone will find relevance in my next comment,but it came from an old captain who flew Boeing’s 18 wheeler to Asia for the last 10 years of his career - If the guy writing my cheque’s tells me to fly it upside down then that’s what I’ll do. Pretty sure if he was told it’s mandatory to wear ...

I haven’t flown for a few years but I’ve always printed a screenshot of intended & alternate approach plates just in case.

Re: 180 float time

I’m in the middle of renewal for my 185;total time in type was the most important but they also asked for a breakdown in each configuration - wheels,floats & Amphibs.If I had skis they would of also had me report that time as well.

Re: Plane damaged by float access hatch

Most of the older floats that I’ve dealt with had the hatch open towards the front so even if not latched the wind kept it closed.
The Aerocet open towards the aircraft so it might be possible to open during flight & stress the hinge.

Re: Edo 2790's

Start with the easy stuff;Any fluid leaks,or puddling under the Amphibs?Does the reservoir fluid level drop after each event?When cycling the gear does the sound of the pump fluctuate up & down?How old is the pump?Any wetness near the pump,or in the fuselage?

Re: float plane mooring ropes

Only floatplanes with no ropes I ever saw were never tied to docks & always stored on land.
In 1983 when I bought my 185 my dad told me to get ropes on the float struts or I’ll regret it- he was on the Otters in the Canadian military.

Re: closing a vfr flight plan

Are there any RCO or DRCO’s that can be reached in the air prior to letdown?

I’ve used those in remote areas of BC to close flightplans.

Re: Westjet CYHZ

A346 Dude;

Post was about dispatch giving you as much information as they had - in the earlier days some at dispatch thought they ran the airline.
First incident was PWA in the early 70's,second incident was CAI.
You are right though both have long disappeared.

Not related to the overrun but related to dispatch reliability from an airline captain friend of mine; He was on his way out in a 737-200 & upon reviewing the dispatch info found that he was 8000 lbs light on fuel & requested the fuel be put on board before he would allow pushback - dispatch told hi...

Every examiner is different,in my experience there will be failures so be ready to figure out hold entries without the help of the 750 & the 600.Also be able to fly the hold & approach without the autopilot just in case. Best part is once you pass your renewals can be done in a redbird without havin...
