Re: Park Brake on for Takeoff

I'm not sure how any of the talk about GA aircraft doing run-ups is relevant...In the 1900, setting the parking brake for engine starts is pretty much essential; very few people have the leg strength and stamina to hold the brakes for the duration of the start and after-start checks. The parking br...

Re: Park Brake on for Takeoff

Diadem. If you trust the parking brake on the 1900 you are bound to taxi into yyz gates while head down doing the after starts......... feet on the brakes, parking brake will slip when it shouldn't and stick when it shouldn't as well

Re: Do you have to snag intermittent problems?

A place I worked at prior, I was given sh!t by the mechs for "writing it in the book" I responded why I bother, you just call it GTS. We can only fix it if they buy us parts. I said no problem, I will keep snagging it. Well we will keep putting GTS in the book. Well the next mx audit, it will come u...

Its been a while since flying the KA200. The aux fuel, is it electrically pump or does it use the jet pumps from bypass fuel? I seem to recall that if there is no fuel in the mains, it wont transfer?

Re: Evas

I think if PW released the actual letter from AC saying they would keep the 1900's in YHZ/YQX the pilots maybe more likely to hang around. The Guys in St John, NB are looking for a corporate King AIr driver, if you really have to stay in the Maritimes
