Re: STAR profiles & ATC

If I quote the AIM, do you expect pilots to pay attention? They hung off every word as soon as I mentioned free dinner and pooping.

Re: STAR profiles & ATC

Re: Pull starting a 206

Incredible, I would have had a tough time believing that without the video. How do you ensure the line does not continue with the prop and wrap itself around the hub?

Re: Westjet mask policy

If an airline wants me to wear clothing to cover my junk when I fly somewhere, I wear clothing to cover my junk so I can fly somewhere.
They want me to wear a mask to fly somewhere, I put the mask on to fly somewhere.

What's the problem here?
