Re: 50 hours and no solo

I had a friend once that was racking up the dual & was pissed at how many hours she had without seeing any solo time in the future,she asked the chief flight instructor to evaluate her & tell her what the problem was - he watched her for the flight & noticed that she couldn’t see properly so he got ...

Re: IFR Flight Test questions

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...

Re: Mandatory life jacket wearing coming for most seaplanes

Always have worn life jackets & so have my passengers in my 185,you don’t have to wear them if you don’t want to - but you won’t be getting in my plane.
Full briefing on doors,windows ,seat belts & life jackets prior to entry for every flight.

If you are anywhere near Boundary Bay pro offers an ifr refresher once a month & a 3 day prep for the atr,I am sure that many other schools offer similar ifr refreshers & update classes to assist you,might be worth checking them out to see if it might be worth for you.

I was a member for over 20 years & voiced my displeasure at the improper removal of a director - they basically told me not to let the door hit me in the ass.Never even returned the two years of prepaid dues they owed me,we don’t do refunds was the statement.

Re: C 206 on EDO 3430 3500lbs vs 3800 lbs max. gross

I have not flown a 206 in any configuration,once I crunched the numbers between a 185 & 206 on floats over 35 years ago I went with the 185 & have been very happy with it’s performance. My comments were more related to the buoyancy of the floats with relation to their load carrying capabilities. Daryl

Re: C 206 on EDO 3430 3500lbs vs 3800 lbs max. gross

Any restrictions weight wise on water would be related to the maximum carrying capacity of the floats.
I remember 1.78 of the maximum buoyancy of both floats but it has been a very long time since I was asked about that so my memory could be at fault.
