Re: The personal log book thing.

I don't see how an airline could operate without some way of tracking recency. Couldn't the F/O have simply logged in to that system and displayed it?

Re: VIDEO: CRASH of Cessna 210 N761RG In the Mountains of Utah

Hearing the stall warning while they are still a few hundred feet up on a gliding final approach means that when they arrive to the ground, they likely will have no reserve of speed with which to flare. Just a question...is that stall warning, or the gear warning? Gear warning first, then you hear ...

Re: Returning From the US

That is correct, but, it does NOT apply to the folks in the back. What do you mean? Pilots in the back are also exempt. The folks riding in the back of a corp jet are not typically pilots, they are the folks that sign the paycheque. They are not exempt from quarantine requirements. Wouldn't you nee...

Re: Returning From the US

It's possible that there is an exemption to the quarantine act for private pilots, I wouldn't know as I haven't read the whole thing. What I do know is flying your personal aircraft does not make you flight crew engaged in transportation. StandingBy, here's the CBSA guide for returning flight crew. ...

Don't overthink it. You're not a tourist, you're acting in the course of your employment as a pilot. That is correct, but, it does NOT apply to the folks in the back. What do you mean? Pilots in the back are also exempt. Exactly. It doesn't matter where you sit, it doesn't matter if you are corpora...

Re: RPP+Floats or PPL+Floats

I intend to do my RPP, then work towards my PPL before doing floats. The reason mainly being is the closest training school is 1+ hours away by car, and my dad keeps his C150 at our farm in the summer time, where i live. So once i have my RPP, I will be able to just fly our own plane to the airport...

Re: ASA CX3 flight computer or cellphone app?

I love my E6B but I also really like the CX3. I'd much prefer an app equal in useability to the CX3 but all the apps I have seen are limited and clunky. One thing to keep in mind though is ASA's track record on quality. I've got two CX2s here that have seen very little use and both are dead. I've he...

Re: Returning From the US

While we can debate all day long whether or not a pilot of a business aircraft can be considered as being employed in the transportation sector and therefore exempt from the quarantine act, in practice any such discussion is way too complicated and if you have a professional pilot's licence and are ...

Re: A mom to a child here. Needed some info

One question still bugs me though, must he do the Professional Pilot Training and Commercial? Are we really looking at 150K currently as expenses? Maybe. There are many different educational paths to getting to the point where you can earn a living as a pilot. Personally I spent about 20k. Private ...

Is an annual inspection due the day of the last one, or the end of the month?

Re: TC medical fees

If the price of a pilot medical isn’t in the basket of products used to calculate an inflation rate, then increasing the price of a medical has no effect on inflation; it cannot therefore play any part in controlling inflation. I think you need to look up the difference between inflation and core i...

Re: TC medical fees

Yes, the inflation rate is a measure of "cost of living", and that includes the cost of some government services. For example in calculating the inflation rate things like postal services, public transport, and health care services are included. I wasn't speaking about how it is measured, I am speak...

Well I think the outcome of the above incident is acceptable. Despite a series of errors the aircraft was safely recovered. Do you have any examples of the or worse you are trying to prevent? We do have examples of autopilots disconnecting unexpectedly which end in large body counts (AF447). As a re...

Re: Flight Control Problem Could be the Autopilot

So how do you disconnect the autopilot on a dash 8 then?

It's also worth noting that if ease of disconnection is an overriding factor, the B737 is probably the best system out there. Just look at it the wrong way and it disconnects.
