... start a level medium banked turn back monitoring the airspeed. If at any time you can not maintain 1.3 Vs immediately roll wings level and land straight ahead.
I think that right there is enough to survive most GA accidents.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Flat pay? At AC? Is this being considered? The current collective agreement is about as far from flat pay as you can get. Was flat pay discussed during the last negotiations?

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Exactly. In the case of fences, it's to the benefit of the company and to the benefit of the current AC pilots to keep the fences up as long as possible. In the case of FL-280's suggestion that Rouge grow by 50 tails and the only benefit to the AC pilots is a permanent fence, it's a massive benefit ...

Re: Using rudder to turn

At 300 ft you should have as a result of a mental takeoff emergency brief already be primed to just push the nose down pull the throttle all the way back and ride it out straight ahead. I dunno. At 300' with enough power to maintain power and airspeed I think I'd take the shortest turn to a runway....

Re: Using rudder to turn

Finally it would be interesting to know why the plane lost power in the above example. The accident record clearly shows that approximately 80 % of loss of power incidents in GA piston engine aircraft are caused by the actions or inaction of the pilot. The best way to deal with a loss of power is t...

Doesn't the AC scope clause require the Rouge flying to be done by pilots on the ACPA list? And doesn't it limit the size of Rouge?

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Well that sounds very realistic. With the minor flaw that there would be pilots who are not on the AC seniority list flying at Rouge. Are you really willing to give up your scope clause? And if so, why? What's the benefit?

Re: Using rudder to turn

Flight94 it sounds like you are talking about using the rudder to roll the aircraft. Not sure why that would be better than a coordinated roll but in the above case it sounds like the author was using the rudder to yaw the aircraft while keeping the wings level with aileron. I might be wrong about t...

Using rudder to turn

Excerpts from a recent Bits and Pieces article. I pushed the throttle to full power and began the takeoff roll, and it all was so darned normal until I got airborne. The engine began to miss, cough, catch, sputter, et cetera, and we weren't climbing. If this has ever happened to you, you know it is ...

What a joke. Does anyone here really think you can't ferry a 415 to Australia and back? Borek used to ferry twin otters to the Maldives on a regular basis. Didn't Buffalo Joe ferry a few bombers to Turkey? Fraser said the companies originally involved in the pitch in 2016 studied the logistics of fl...

Admittedly my PPL spin training was a long time ago but I seem to remember for a left spin it would be full left rudder and full right aileron?

Re: Types of ELT

I think the point of labeling an ELT AF or AP is so that SAR knows if the ELT stays with the airframe or can be taken away from the crash site. If the ELT is designed to be removed from the aircraft and a portable antenna is supplied for that purpose, I'd say it's an AP rather than an AF even though...

Re: Types of ELT

All my ELTs have a second antenna strapped to the ELT tray. Looking at the 406s it doesn't appear that they have this any more.

Thanks for the AIM reference, should have looked there.

Types of ELT

CAR 605.38 says we need an ELT of type AD, AF, AP, A, or F.

What the heck are A and F?

And am I the only idiot here who has their ELT listed as AF when actually all of our small aircraft ELTs are AP?

Personally, I towed gliders at several clubs long before I had my commercial licence and counted some of those hours towards my commercial including some of the dual required. TC had no issues with it. This was over 20 years ago but the rules haven't changed since then.

Re: Advice for IFR Renewal Study Material after 24 years!

CARs, then AIM RAC, then CAP GEN would be a good start. Depending on what you've been doing and where you've been flying you'll probably want to go through AIM MET and Air Command Weather or Pilot Weather From Solo to Airlines.
