Re: Helicopter crash CYFD

Looking at Google maps there’s a major high-tension power line running parallel to Powerline Rd along the south side and a smaller rural power line running parallel on the other side of the road. Maybe lost sight of the smaller one while looking at the big one?

Re: Helicopter crash CYFD

It's an R44 and was doing crop spraying when it hit a power line. The owner says the pilot is okay.

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Ahhh look at the airport, actually NS as a whole. The only reason why not having 4 ILS's is for economic reasons. Why would you put ILS's on 05, or 32 when they are only used maybe 5% of the time. That said the airport authority seems more interested in selling you crap than improving aircraft ops(...

Geez, I wish people would post the dates of the crash in their subject lines when they post. I saw this today and my heart skipped a beat thinking it just happened.
The date’s right there under the title on the forum index page.

CJ525 Attention Getter

Aftermarket modifications of GA aircraft can be great. A lack of understanding into how they've changed the aircraft can also put you in a very precarious situation, as in this case.

Loose screw causes CitationJet inflight upset.

Re: VIDEO: Cessna 310 Crash after LEFT Engine Failure (29 Oct 2020)

I read elsewhere that the C310 pilot added power on the good engine to avoid a power line and that’s when it rolled over.

Re: Westjet mask policy

If I made the laws, seatbelts would only be mandatory if your car is travelling more than 80km/h. Below that speed, if you remove your belt or keep it on, who cares. The point is, the cops wouldn't be allowed to bother you until 80km/h +. But currently, you must wear your seat belt even if you trav...

Re: Westjet mask policy

While you are correct that the passenger must present the medical exemption upon request, it is highly unlikely that the doctor will document the specifics of the exemption. In fact, stating the medical reasons would be a violation of the persons right to privacy regarding their health data.

The danger in posting something that inflammatory is that someone is almost certain to quote you before you get a chance to have second thoughts. By chance, are you familiar with libel law?
