Re: ****HISTORICAL**** P-38 crash, Prince George BC

Fascinating story! My biological grandfather was killed in a lightning with spartan air service in what would have been the late 50s out of CYOW on a maintenance flight. Believe it was an engine failure on takeoff.
Thanks for the read.

Re: Things learned in the real world

One of the best things I was told when I got my first job (C206 on wheels) was go everywhere at 300-500 feet well the weather was clear, then when you get the first shit weather day it is not surprising to you to be that low and it looks formiluar. try a 180 deg turn, try flaps 20 slowed down BEFORE...

Re: New Pilot owns plane looking for suggestions.

Not sure if anyone has said this as I did not read the hole thing but the best piece of advice I got when I was biting around building time was no more day flying. At some point you will need the night PIC and depending on how your path takes you it could be really important!! I know people that had...

Re: New yyz slots..this is gonna hurt!

When we go into anywhere that has slots we have a chat with the pax about how important it is that they make the time or we may have to wait an unknown amount of time. They are always very thankful that we let them know and are on time or call ahead if there is a porblem. I wonder if some people are...

Re: March 11 2013 Air Canada Incident YYZ Embraer and a Van

Weather or not i herd my full call if I was sort final and someone was calling out go-around I think its hit TOGA could have been a bigger picture that they may not know about just because the touch down area was clear. Easier to ask why did we get sent around after than a worse out-come.
