Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

Aren't the Porter pilots sitting at home making CEWS while most other regional pilots go to work for what's similar to CEWS pay? We're all suffering in this crap, some a little worse than others. Porter has always been a little different, not better or worse, just different. This situation is the sa...

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

A more experienced pilot may not be willing to tolerate that behaviour to just fly to build hours and fulfill the new pilot dream. Then said pilot will likely find themselves on EI or working outside of aviation until things pick up. As someone who has worked for a couple of these type of operators...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

Every king air and 1900 has the same basic fuel system. Exception being the original 100 and perhaps the 90 series (never flew any of the King Air 90s). So to answer your question, I'm referring to the A100, 200, B200, 300, 350, 1900, 1900C, 1900D. Transfer ALL the aux fuel into the mains. If the ma...

Re: 703 Piston Twin T/O Perf requirements

703 needs to meet "all-engines-operating-take-off-distance". No engine out performance necessary. It's perfectly legal to rotate, grab for the gear handle, experience an engine failure and plow into the trees at the end of the runway. 704 and 705 require the aircraft be able to climb over the trees ...

Re: Will the industry ever be fully back?

...this will definitely cause many to leave the industry for other careers/retire early as well as discourage many from starting their flight training. I’d agree on 3-5 years unless they unleash more viruses on us. :? I agree that the jobs will return. However it has yet to be seen if they are the ...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

You said "It's good practice not to let the fuel level in the tanks go too low". Pretty sure that means leave a little fuel in each tank. You even went on to talk about avoiding drawing sediment or dirty fuel into the engine(s). Now if you had said to leave sufficient fuel in the primary tank(s) tha...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

What about tanks that transfer into another tank? Does a king air pilot need to leave fuel in the aux tanks (contrary to the AFM)? Pretty sure this thread should have been called "how well do you know your engine(s)? Sounds like this guy knew his fuel tanks quite well, but didn't know his engine bur...

Re: Pivot Air

I'd prefer if the passengers were flown by a company that treats their employees well. Pivot Air's current pilots, didn't they make life quite difficult for many pilots over the years?

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

Caravan doesn't have buckets of power to fly though any problems. Caravans are under powered, and flying around northern Canada in the winter. It's a different animal.

Anyway, I thought they decided requiring a PPC wasn't legal. The employer was obligated to do the required training.

Re: What's your $day$ rate?

I made just over $100,000 last year. Divide by the number of days I flew, it's somewhere around $550/day. Now obviously the pay scale is structured quite a bit different than that. Short days with little flying I made less, long days or OT I made significantly more.

Re: Liberals may target the Transportation sector with very hefty Carbon taxes.

Airliners are generally in the 2-3 liters/100km/passenger range. So tax the shit out of these passengers so they take their SUV instead and burn 10L/100km. Now the 150 seat airliner burning 400L/100km is now going to be replaced by 150 SUVs burning 1500L/100km. Granted some will carpool, families an...

Re: Northern Airlines Receive Gov't Funding

Only NWT airlines deserve to be saved. If you fly in the Yukon, Nunavut or fly for a "fake" northern airline south of 60N, your airline should fail. Maybe it's that all the reserves in the provinces all have road access, so airlines are unnecessary. :roll:

Re: Piper PA 31 operating costs

500. Probably pretty close to that...per hour. 140L/hr of avgas, so do the math on the airport price Overhauls aren't cheap on those engines, and every 1800-2000hrs for each engine. Somewhere I heard that a small PT-6 is actually cheaper in terms of overhaul cost per flight hour. I'm talking King A...
