Re: Carb Heat Causes Power Loss

There is a point where adding carb heat will not recover power. I'd be fairly sure a 700 rpm drop in RPM is well past that point. At best, you might have some ice chunk(s) come loose and block the mechanicals inside the carb throat.

Re: Incorporating a partnership

Just a question of Photofly's comment. What is the source of your statement that fines for corporations are five times those for individuals? I've not come across that before.

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

In my opinion the snow birds are out dated and the equipement is boring and outdated as well. Either shut them down or update them. They seem to have taken on this mystical Canadian thing like Tim Hortons. How many social media generation people actually know who Tim Horton was. A successful ejecti...

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

Using two planes does not make Trudeau a hypocrite. Yes it does. He has told the rest of us that we must reduce our carbon footprint, and yet he makes no effort to do the same. That is hypocrisy. Maybe he would have normally used three planes? So he did reduce his footprint. This is not hypocrisy. ...

Re: Bell 206 - Sept 24,2019 - CYBL

A medical event should not be ruled out as a possibility. It is a possibility and I wouldn't discount it just yet but I would figure in that case, power would have been on still I'm not sure there is any real evidence that power was off. One thing that seems more sure is that there were controllabi...

I've flown a Challenger and had a prop go to bits over the Coquihalla after a couple of bolts came out of the tower mount, took a few spins inside the belt and spit out into the prop. Immediate shutdown. Aztecs were bad for doors popping, and dangerous when they did. I had one pop on liftoff at Pan ...

Strange response from the doctor. Test is for diabetes, not urological conditions. That is correct.
