Re: Next Issue: Car Rental

The hot exhaust from a recently parked vehicle could have easily caught the grass on fire. It's florida, it can be tinder dry and the fire would spread too quickly to do anything but watch.

Re: Trauma reducing bucking bars. Worth it?

If I was doing a lot of bucking it might be a game changer. There is no doubt that repetitive use can be crippling.

A cheaper alternative might be a good pair of impact reducing gloves, then your hammer hand is protected too.

Re: cylinder fin paint

Technically, the manufacturer should list approved specs and processes. I can't recall ever having painted a cylinder myself but you could order high temp engine paint from a few places. The tempo product you listed, I didn't see a Mil spec, I know they make a spec'd primer though. 500 deg f is pret...

Re: Cessna Alternator Warning Light

The Cessna "high voltage light" is a bit of a misnomer. When it comes on, all it's saying is that the alternator has been taken off-line, and isn't producing current any more. That's all. Now, one cause of the alternator being taken off line is over-voltage. This is a very good point. Most pilots w...

Tourism is currently shut down, there will still be a couple of essential projects but hiring will be nil. If you can get a job, period, you're doing good.

10,000,00 die each year in China.

I don't understand those zeros

:smt120
I'd give that number a solid 5/7
In 2018, almost 10 million people died in China with a death rate of 7.12 per 1000 people.

In 2018 the USA had a death rate of 8.685 per 1000 people.

Re: Corona Virus

Was just about to post this. They’ve delivered twice as many urns so far than that claimed death toll, and on the current delivery schedule it will be 40 000 delivered urns in 10 days. The Chinese are clearly hiding their real number. But so long as the borders are closed, it’s really their own pro...

Re: Is transport Canada closed

2 months ago, i sent in an application and a cheque for the fee.

1 month ago I received a government envelope containing a carbon copy, handwritten receipt for the cheque and absolutely nothing else.

Was the application accepted? rejected? Who knows, probably won't know until i renew again.

Re: Engineering layoffs

Of course there will be layoffs, just not as quickly and not as many.

Good engineers are hard to find, they won't be dumped. Dead weight first, then real decisions need to be made.

There has been a real shortage before this, it might catch up now.

Re: Two RTO's on the same runway - at the same time

Brake lights and turn signals should be required on all aircraft. Throw in a horn too for good measure.

Seems like everything ended up as it should, both aircraft stopped in time.
