Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Faulty parallelism fallacy. Your equate: no seatbelt at all = no shoulder harness. You have no argument. The law is clear, and pilots use there judgment. I guarantee that the pilots on that flight didn't have their shoulder harness on and weren't injured. No I am claiming that both pax and pilots d...

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

I'm glad they went to investigate but the company has had 3 weeks to do whatever they want to the aircraft. Due to any possible insurance claims they might have a vested interest in influencing the investigation. I believe the aircraft was sitting in the lake probably related to why TC didn’t inves...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Except there is nothing uncomfortable about a lap belt in the back... Right. Yet the shoulder harnesses in the flight deck apparently are and even give you bad posture? Wouldn't you agree both arguments sound a bit ... similar? How tall are you? It may have something to do with it, I think it may b...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

I wonder how many long it will be until seat belts become mandatory if seated on airplanes instead of just recommended.

Also I’ll add my self to the list of not knowing anyone who wears shoulder harnesses above 10000’ unless there is known turbulence, I personally find they contribute to bad posture.

Re: Careful getting fuel in Thunder Bay

The Air Force doesn't fly avgas burners across the country. Not sure of the Jet A prices, but I'm sure there's enough airline pressure on prices for that. Airlines almost never pay posted prices, they buy it through fuel contracts. Take a look at the financials the airlines release and they will sa...

Re: Full flap landing rquired

If your approach speed is 60kts and you have 10 kts of headwind your V/S on a 3 degree would only be 250 FPM. That is not a natural or reasonable decent rate in a small aircraft

Calm down telex. Can you not see how easily this mistake was made? The reverser was a technical fault, the crew's actions were a human factors error.
