Re: "Digital" 406 MHz ELTs to Be Mandatory - TC

Re: "Digital" 406 MHz ELTs to Be Mandatory - TC

Another 406 benefit for SAR is the signal identifies the aircraft. The owner can be contacted before sending out a search effort in the case of "false alarms". That is assuming it is registered correctly. We had a commercially registered plane come off lease with a 406 still registered to...

Re: Use the Autofeather

The AFX uses high pressure oil, low pressure oil, PLA Column switches for arming. In Cold Weather open bleeds, use ice doors for takeoff. Most times that will allow PLA Power lever Angle switches to be close to the 92%. If not hold AFX in Test(bypass column switches) and allow the F/O to fly the leg

Re: Use the Autofeather

First there is no provision for propeller aircraft to have reduced power T/O's having said that 704/703 there is no requirement for runway analysis and obstruction other than what is dictated in the CAP.

Re: Medical done, no mail at home yet - please advise

maybe different now. But a few years back as CP of a 704. I had to call TC and browbeat them to get there thumb out and print renewal and medical stickers. (called about 10 days before the 90 day due) for about 4-5 pilots(PPC's over a 2 day period) and they blamed us for not being proactive, and tha...

Re: How to build an aircraft hangar

the tube/fabric hangars may or may not be considered a permanent structure wrt property taxes. that said anything over about 80' wide clearspan costs go up significantly due to steel thickness. what are you wanting to store?

Re: Critical Role of Situational Awareness in Accidents

My first large airplane "748" the instructor insisted on "do the flow, then do the checklist" and had me either physically touch, or point and verify all points of the checklist. To many nowadays are read and doers, and there are some very slow readers.

Don't fly any customers - or potential customers - of the company. maybe their family members. If it's not legitimately for business purposes, this has severe tax implications. CRA will try to assess a taxable benefit equivalent to a first class airline seat between the same two points (if the plan...
