Re: Bose Proflight

Hey all! 2 flights (9 hours) in a Conquest, and so far so good. ANR on high is excellent, much better than the Clarity Aloft with custom ear molds I was using previously. Spare batteries on hand would be a necessity. I'm considering ear molds for the Proflight as well, but so far, don't see the need...

Re: 2 rescued from Nahanni, Wolverine Air.

To be fair, the original article just said a light plane. I debated putting Wolverine Air at all, but then I decided to include it because there was no doubt they were involved. Also, putting "holy crap!..." wouldn't have added anything to the narrative other than drama and my own license....

Re: 2 rescued from Nahanni, Wolverine Air.

Haters gonna hate. The problem with quoting the article itself is that it changes as new information comes in. Especially on what is likely a rapidly developing story. I thought I put enough information in the header for you to decide whether you wanted to click on it or not. The link itself should ...

Re: Best Carry-On Luggage ?

2nd vote for Briggs & Riley. Expensive, but worth it. The last carry on bag you will ever need. Will fit overhead and under most seats.

Re: Aviation Medical in YUL

Dr Rohan is mostly bilingual, enough to be workable. Good doctor, reasonably priced (for Montreal), ECG can be done in his office. Dr Theriault also does FAA Medicals and is very thorough. Another is Dr Pearlman, but he's expensive and I found him to be not so good. Wouldn't go back to him but YMMV....

Re: Garmin D2 Bravo released!

Check the reviews on Amazon before ordering. In a lot of ways, the D2 Bravo is crippled, especially if you're outside the US.

Hope that helps!

Re: Company Layoffs: A Better Guide to Employment Identifica

Keystone. Although it remains to be seen how many will be re-hired by whoever buys it out. I'm guessing somewhere in the neighbourhood of 30-40 people (AMEs, pilots, office).
