Re: Todays TAF

How long would the gust have to last to lift an A380 off the ground? Question for the scientific minds.... Depends. Is it on a treadmill running in the opposite direction? Add to that “What if the A380 carried a cargo load of swallows that all started taking flight at the same time” Isn’t there a p...

Re: Air Transat runway incursion

There is indeed a discrepancy, and if you want you can see it on google earth. The chart shows the line past the corner of L, perpendicular to the edge of 8R. The actual line is a good bit before, and cuts across the corner on an angle. Normally, it would be a glaring error to go past a hold short ...

I would be treating the 172 as a 2 seater with more cargo than a cub so I don't have huge expectations, I don't think. ..
I’m a J-3 fan but your mission profile suits the 172 best.

She’ll be a bit of a dog off the water though!

Re: Reading the forums Could Prevent a Disaster like the 737 Max

Ridicule and condescension could be reasons why. Possibly people don't share because they don't want to be criticized or attacked, not on the information they're providing, but their own knowledge and experience and even personalities. AvCanada isn't exactly a non-judgemental, non-threatening site....

Re: Reading the forums Could Prevent a Disaster like the 737 Max

I agree that pilots should always "dig deeper" and strive to improve their skills and knowledge, but critical safety information like this should be forthcoming from the manufacturer, not picked up off of an anonymous aviation forum. Agreed but with “headlines” akin to the one used for this thread....

Re: What do you do after landing long in a floatplane

Well to answer my dear friend Pelmet’s question...

One stuffs another wad of crew into their cheek and taxies back past the dock they intended to land by under the guise of “landed long on purpose to cool the engine”.

Seriously Pelmet, you’re a piece of work.

Hi Skylark60, I used to do this routinely with my C180. Same set up with reinforced plywood bottoms. No differences on handling although I did find it harder to get up on the step at max take-off weight when the outside temperature was over 20 degrees.

Good friend of mine tried it and experienced severe erectile disfunction that persisted long after he stopped taking the pills.

He just shaved it all off and got in really good shape, better look.
Shaved the head or the erectile dysfunction area?

Failure to maintain enough situational awareness to prevent hitting earth or an obstacle.
