Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Some think that SB 11 should have continued straight ahead and punched out over the river or some other benign area. While flying on someone's wing, you are totally focused on maintaining position and not hitting the other aircraft. There is no opportunity to do any sight-seeing. Thus, once the eng...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I don't understand this debate. It seems very basic to me. 1. A turnback following an engine failure at 200 feet is a bad idea. 2. A turnback following an engine failure at 1500 feet is not a bad idea. 3. A tutor has enough extra energy at 200 feet to zoom climb to 1500 following a failure. 4. See ...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

It's not discussed much, but do you agree that if the failure was only partial at the time the left turn was made, return to field was at least as good an option as ejecting? Partial power may allow you to stay level or shallow the descent. Either way you want to find a runway, if you can’t, then e...

Re: Seeking Checkout in 182 and Mountain pilot for ferry

Stay away from schools. With some exceptions, which are mostly for helicopter instructors, instructors from a school have only a theoretical knowledge of mountain flying. See if you can just get a commercial working pilot, or retired from BC work, and ask him to give you at least a five hour mountai...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

A split second decision has to be made. Continuing straight ahead with an engine malfunction of unknown magnitude would put the aircraft over the most densely populated area. If the engine can't be relit or partial thrust regained, it results in both having to eject over a built up area with many h...

Here's hoping everyone made it out alright. From the one video, it appears as though both seats went - so the witness account of finding a "deceased female" in the wreckage seems odd to say the least.

So, When ONEX bought Westjet, Westjet lost its AOC?
Onex bought the shares in Westjet. The only regulatory consideration was the Canadian ownership content of Onex shares, assuming they had 100% of Westjet.

There is a difference. The C burns less due to having less powerful engines. Do you need me to connect the dots more than that? I don't picture you as a dot connector.

The authorities know pasco doesn't operate to balance field, just like they know they operate no alternate IFR in D's but using C fuel flow numbers. It's just how things are done at the south terminal.
And this concerns you in what way?

Re: Near ground collision in Trail

Well, I am not instrument rated so I am gonna ask. If you fly an approach in IMC, and break out at minimums, is there any need to look down the runway to make sure it’s empty before you land? Yes. But still, you may not see, or expect, what's there. The holes in the cheese line up. https://worldair...

Re: Near ground collision in Trail

There's no way a 1900 operated in 704 can balance on a 4000' runway. Pasco gets away with it because the C doesn't have accelerate stop and accelerate go numbers published, and they operates their D's into there using C numbers. It's just a matter of time before these guys crunch a 1900 full of peo...

Isn’t checking the runway something that should be done on approach every time?
I expect that there were IFR conditions there at the time, the approach is from the American side, and that's a pretty tight valley to be manouevering a 1900 around to have a look at the runway.
